Probably one of the most anticipated smartphone firmware updates ever, Cupcake for Android sure is taking its sweet time to release. Obviously, the on-screen keyboard is a huge draw in its interest but there are a ton of new features that we shouldn't overlook. In the embedded video, a developer details the newest features of Android after the Cupcake Update. It's a great watch. And if you want to take Android Cupcake out for a personal spin (on an emulator, of course) here's how:

1. Download and install the Android SDK found here.

2. Download this zip containing new latest Android images: 3. Unpack files to a temporary location.
4. Backup the folder <android-sdk-folder>/tools/lib/images (<android-sdk-folder> is the Android SDK installation folder)
5. Replace the files ramdisk.imgsystem.img and userdata.img in <android-sdk-folder>/tools/lib/images with the files unpacked from the zip in step 3. 6. Start the emulator and wait.

Enjoy! Be sure to tell us what you think of Cupcake!

i cant get anything 2 start working.. i access the sdk through linda file manager.. but it says download unsuccessful, after loading for a while.. im not computer savvy so if anyone can help i would be so thankful..

How about adding a feature to add multiple numbers into a text without having to type a letter or number? Like checking the names that you want to receive a text or such?
