After screwing around for hours I have been able to get the Official dell upgrade (workaround). I realize that some want to upgrade in specific ways. But for those of us that are interested in just getting a factory upgrade here is what I have found. I believe it is a simple case of connecting the dots. All I needed was someone to provide the USA upgrade path Thanks (TheManii) For your wisdom.
So here is what worked for me. Make sure you use NVFLASH and downgrade to Froyo 2.2.2 USA WIFI.

Then with your Streak 7 connected to the internet enter the following URL in your android web browser.

http://mobileupdate.dell.com/?versio...icetag=PPPPPPP

Your service tag will remain as it was before the upgrade as TheManii Stated. All we needed was the correct upgrade path. Remember this has only been tested on a tablet that has been downgraded with the Froyo USA wifi Rom provided on these forums.

This will start your official update via the download page. When it is finished just click on the downloaded file and this will allow you to get the Honeycomb 3.2 Goodness youve been waiting for simply and reliably!
Enjoy,
Stingerrray

Firstly you dont need your service tag, it only depends on your installed rom.

Secondly all it does is lead your to the download page to the pkgs,
all known available pkgs are available here or on the update guide I linked to.

If you dont get a notification you wouldnt be able to update anyway, as it will check before install if you're compatable.

The currently available upgrade paths are

EU Wifi: 340/344 -> 507
EU 3g: 340/344 -> 507
US wifi: 340/344 -> 506

EU wifi submodel: 1A3
EU 3g submodel: 1A2
US wifi submodel: 1A3

The device string is constructed as:
GxxxByyyzzzaa-bbb

xxxx is always LUN as this is it's codename (The dell codename for the s7 was "looking glass", the qisda codename was "luna")
yyy is the submodel number listed above
zzz is the current rom version
aa is the region.

bbb is not valid on the S7, but on the S5 and venue this is your modem region (either US, EU, or AWS)

So the upgrade paths are:

EU Wifi:
GLUNB1A334000 -> GLUNB1A350700
GLUNB1A334400 -> GLUNB1A350700

EU 3g:
GLUNB1A234000 -> GLUNB1A250700
GLUNB1A234400 -> GLUNB1A250700

US Wifi:
GLUNB1A334030 -> GLUNB1A350630
GLUNB1A334430 -> GLUNB1A350630

For the moment the US roms 325, 340 are not canidates to update, so they're either stuck on 2.2 or have to manually update.
Until the tmo update actually comes out I'm going under the assumption that it's not currently planned to come out.

(There is also the US 4G 322/333 -> 338, but it's very old)

This covers every publically available roms. Roms that are not publicly available will never recieve update notifications.

This system is identical to the one used on the Streak 5, 10 and venue

all the links do is link to the update pkgs and the update page. If you cant acces the update page to download them you wont be able to install them anyway.

So if P is replaced with your service tag it wont work either?

Will you get a version mismatch?

I'm trying right now thanks for your help. It is DL now.

your rom must EXACTLY match one of the above ones
AND your device must not have clockwork
AND must not have a custom rom installed

for it to update sucessfully though "check for updates"

If "check for updates" doesnt give an update, you will get a fota mismatch

Also, all known pkgs are already listed on Dell Streak 7- xda wiki

The only things missing are older rom versions. Many of which were recently reported during the HC rollout

OK if it is too simple it usually does not work. Ill keep rooting around. I like to try and find an easy upgrade path for the masses.

Thanks,

The right was is to flash the matching recovery and use the pkg, assuming you're not on honeystreak.

Tegra2 device users are far too reliant on nvflash to do the work for them.

In my case it is not being reliant. But just trying to find the path of least resistance. Thanks for the info you did indeed allow me to get the USA upgrade. All i thought I needed was the OEM VERSION Numbers that were being rolled out. So I will change this to a simple guide.

Thanks,

Essentially any user who decides to root their (android) device and/or install a custom rom/modify the system paritition should have fastboot properly installed and usable for their device.

This is rarely the case as I've seen for Streak 5 and 7 users. If that were the case updating to the correct rom even if yours isnt a valid upgrade path is only 4 steps:

1) Download the recovery and pkg
2) copy the pkg to the 'sdcard'
3) flash the recovery
4) do a 'install from pkg'

Excluding the downloading step, this is nominally 3 minutes of work.

If you dont modify your device at all this is essentially 1 step as "check for updates" does all this for you

I believe 338 can update to to 506 by merely copying the update.pkg to it's 'sdcard' and flashing. Assuming you havnt modified your device
