    Re: How to update from Android 2.2 to 3.0?

    The Android 1.6 was one of the first versions introduced for smartphones which now has been replaced by the 2.4 version of Android for the smartphones. Unfortunately the smartphones are only equipped with Android versions less than 3.0 as the 3.0 Androids are specifically made for Tablets and are thus not compatible with the smartphones.

    Even though some smartphones like HTC Inspire is equipped with Android 3.0, but the phone is not known to be doing justice to the full potential and features the Android 3.0 Honeycomb version has to offer due to the limitations of screen size.

    The Android 2.2 versions installed in the smartphone can be upgraded to the 2.3 Gingerbread version but the process is very critical that requires sound technical knowledge and might not be a possibility for everyone as if is to go wrong, the phone might be ruined completely. Therefore it is advisable not to attempt the upgrade process. Instead it should be handled by a trained technician. The process is also very costly and the upgradation also depends on the hardware of the smartphone. On a low hardware specification, the Android 2.3 may run very slowly and might cause lack of support for various applications.

    Dear Friend,

    The specific update you have asked for is impossible to do it on Mobiles. First reason, the Version 3 of Android is made for Tablet PCS. Google is planning something similar to this for Mobiles and we can expect the release sooner or Later. Mean while if you want some update, you can upgrade the mobile to Gingerbread version which is 2.3. This will work fine.

    Better check your mobile specifications before upgrading to any version also dont do it Manually.

    Hello , upgrades are risky for devices if they have not been officially announced . That is because the experts know that the specifications of an older version phone may not be compatible with the newer version . Your 2.2 Froyo version device can be upgraded to 2.3 Gingerbread . But an unofficial upgrade may lead to problems like regular hanging , loss of battery backup which may lead to low performance of your device . The version that you are looking for ie 3.0 was developed for tabs . Soon it was introduced for some phones too. But can you expect a version for tabs gonna work for a phone that well .But still if you want to go with an upgrade you can try 2.2 version if that works . Just follow the steps . :
    1 Go to Settings
    2. Select About phone .
    3. Choose s
    oftware update . Though i would not advice you to go with an upgrade to even 2.3 as you may face problems of slow performance . Hope that helps . Thanks

    Android Version 3.0 Honey Comb is specifically designed and implemented for tablets. If you need it you must root your phone and flash it by modifying the screen resolution and other constraints...

    If you want to upgrade your phone please try android versions 2.3 or 4.0...

    Alternatively try Cyanogen Mods to update is you don't have official updates for your phone...

    Its tough to say the exact time of upgradation


    But you can check most of the time in your About Phone column


    Enter in Settiings from Menu


    Click About Phone row in the options


    Now click on Software Updates


    If your phone is ready to get update or is compatible you can see the options for it


    So enjoy if u have at the particular time

    If your device has capability to convert it will show up there

    Hey

    you cant update to honeycomb android 3.0. Its just for android tablets not phones. Thats the rule of google.

    You can try rooting your phone to ICS that too depends on what phone you have and is their a firmware available for your phone on the internet.

    Else just try and update to gingerbread its really good. I would say better than ICS.

    Thanks

    Hello friend,

    I will help you to solve your problem,don't worry just follow as i say.

    1.Firstly make a note that you cannot update you phone to the Android version 3.0.

    Because it is only designed for the tablets and there is no official or unofficial availability of that software for phone's.

    So it is better you upgrade your phone to Android version 2.3.6 Gingerbread.

    It is quite good performing operating system in the present market.

    Hope it is helpful to you.......

    All the best................................
