New Android Market appears in 2.2 firmware

It looks real to me. Our friend Rob from Phandroid has posted some pics of a T-Mobile myTouch 3G running a test version of the Android 2.2 firmware. Not a lot of new information was revealed, but image gives us a preview of a newer Android Market.

It appears the next update to the Market will allow for automatic updating of select apps. A check box is located on the app detail page which allows the user to toggle this feature on and off. This was a major gripe for many Android users, so it is nice to see Google address it.

We know Android 2.2 is coming and new versions of the Market have been tied with firmware upgrades in the past. Hopefully all will be revealed at next month’s Google I/O conference.

Allow automatic updating.

    Good… I’m really glad to know there’s another feature I won’t get on my Hero…

  3. More fragmentation on the way folks. Stay tuned

  4. @darifreshGuest 5 years ago

    So simple.

    Thank goodness. They finally figured it out

  5. NickedynickGuest 5 years ago

    Hurrah! And on a Magic too! Hopefully this means my G1 still has some life left in it :-)

    u mean great another feature u will have on your hero because this update is being pushed to all android phones. and more to the point is that this patch fixes fragmentation because android is just the core and the core can be upgraded without everything else from this point forward

  7. So I guess this is why there was never any talk about the MT3G getting 2.1 lately. Its getting 2.2 instead, right?

    If there isn’t an update for the magic uk to 2.0+ before my contract runs out, then I’m afraid I ain’t getting another android phone. 2 year contract, no update? Sorry, no thanks.

    Here is my email to HTC after hero update joke.
    (( OK Im going to buy a htc incredibl and enjoy android 2.1 but after a few months android 2.2 or whatever released and again I should waiting for another damn update.you know in android these damn waiting never ends.THE ALL USEFUL LIFE CYCLE OF A HIGH END ANDROID PHONE IS AT LAST 4 OR 6 MONTHS.LIKE MY htc HERO )).AND now here is HTC respond.
    (( Hi, I’m Victor, and I will be glad to assist you today.Thank you for your interest in the new HTC Incredible device. At this time we have no information on when the Android 2.1 update will be released for the Hero device. Once the update is released it will be pushed to your device as an over the air update or it will be posted on our support site for your device. I do apologize for all the inconvenience that this issue may has caused you )).
    All these problems just remind me windows mobile updating issue. I really love Android but now the only thing Android needs is a updating system like windows phone 7 otherwise it became another windows mobile.

      Perhaps if your email had contained anything resembling grammar, you would have gotten a more favorable response. Do me a favor and don’t vote.

  10. To all those with gripes about fragmentation, Google is working on the issue, and I seriously doubt the Hero will get left out in the code. Give it some time, or if you really, really cant’ wait and want 2.1+, go ahead and root and install cyanogen’s mods.

    I know these aren’t perfect solutions, but considering Google is working on a solution to fragmentation and you have the root option, it’s really not as bleak and some people make it out to be.

    I believe, that this 2.2 will be the next update, not the 2.1. Just saying.
