Problems updating to 4 01

To have a clean standardized update system would mean all the OEMs would have to agree to abide strictly by Google's guidelines for what they can and cannot modify on the platform.However, as soon as Google tries to do something like that, the OEMs usually cry foul that Google is making Android more proprietary and restricting what they can do with it.That's definitely nothing to be proud about, because it could be years by the time the vast majority of users are on the Android 5 platforms.

In this case, we have "Lollipop," which includes Android 5.0 and the recently released Android 5.1There may or may not be an Android 5.2 as well, depending how big of a change Google plans for Android 6.0 and whether it needs to delay it in order to implement those major changes.As we can see in the distribution numbers chart, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), which was released just about three years ago, still only has 15.6 percent of the market, and there's no reason to believe new versions will transition more rapidly from Android 5.0 in the future.Because Android is open source and because so many (essentially) OEM-tweaked "forks" of it exist, a "clean" upgrade path is almost impossible.Because apparently, the i Phone 3G needs to be restored, rather than updated, for things to work properly.We aren't sure why, but what we do know is that in order to get i OS 4 onto your i Phone 3G, you must do a restore (not an upgrade).While this may sound intimidating, rest assured that as long as you back up your device before doing the restore, things should go much more smoothly than they did when trying an update.
