Hi,

I have heard that omate features over the air update (maybe called OTA?), which I suppose should be easy to use. I want to ask - how can I check if a new OTA update is available? How can I check my current version?

Will such update preserve all my contacts and calendar appointments?

I have omate 8GB/1GB in Europe 2100. I have flashed it with firmware TEST_RELEASE_Omate_2100_TrueSmart_20140314.zip (btw, was there a new firmware released, and I maybe missed it?)

To search for OTA update go to settings/system/about TS/wireless update and click "check for update"

You don't have to check for (F)OTA, system will inform you if it discover update.

Over the air update or OTA is well known system of update in iOS and Android world and it's working quite good.

You won't lose anything, your data, contact, pictures and everything else will be preserved.

And no, even Omate promised to upgrade TS by the end of last month they didn't do that - why I'm not surprised?

The 'about truesmart' option is available in the original firmware settings.

your screenshot shows the default android settings menu, which makes me believe you are not on the official Omate Software, which means you do not get the official over the air update.

You are running some unofficial ROM. Maybe Dees Bluetooth Tether or Loki's Unified. I don't know. I think you have to get back to stock if you want it. I advise you not to, there's nothing that special in OTA. You are most likely safer now than with the update.

Question
Hey,

got mine TS (1+8GB 2100Mhz) last week.

My firmare: Omate_truesmart_20140513.103530_V2.0.
No ota available? The message says no updates available?!

Latest Kickstarter updates says: Omate_TrueSmart_V2.0_20140527 were the latest update.

I am confused.
Any chance to get the firmware elsewhere?

There ate at least two different versions produced in May and they each have their own unique hardwares, which are incompatible with each other and both with any other firmware builds. The 0513 firmware on yours is the build for what is referred to as "third batch" and the 0527 is found on the last batch so far - 4th batch. Both are version 2.0 OUI builds, not OUI 2.1 and neither is any better than the other. Both have wide open insecurity and Bluetooth stack coding failures and so forth just as in the original firmwares from back in January. There has been NO progress made on improving the TrueSmart firmware so far.

Since these hardware revisions require incompatible firmwares (flashing the wrong one will softbrick your TrueSmart) and there is no way to tell them apart, development of replacement firmwares has pretty much halted.
