Our friends across the pond in the United Kingdom have been telling us that instead of a RC 29 or RC 30 update, they're getting a RC 8 update sent to them. Confused? Yeah, we were too until we realized that the RC 8 update is akin to combining the RC29 and RC30 builds. So, the RC 8 update that UK users are getting is the same update that US users received in two separate forms. We don't quite understand why Google named it as such, a basic 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 would have worked just as well, but we'll let them slide.
Anybody in the UK feel the goodness of RC 8?
I've got it around 4 AM. Reboot issue seems to be gone, phone also seems to be running cooler. Battery still 35% after 9 hours of heavy use. And also when I connect G1 to the computer, it asks me if I want to mount SD card to be able to copy files.
If it's the same as rc30 then why don't we have auto rotate and screen keyboard?
The RC8 update is fully named TC5-RC8 compared to the US update titled TC4-RC29/30, I think rather than roll out the TC4-???? update they upgraded to combine the updates hence the TC5 in the UK. Hope that makes sense on the update front?! The update itself has resolved a few issues but according to another site on the 5th Feb the UK RC33 update will b OTA between the 5th and 15th Feb but won't include the cupcake features everyone's hoping for, I hope they are wrong for T-mobiles, Android's and HTC's sake cause there'll be a lot of peeved people, especially if the rumours about a pending G2 release are true
