Seems there was a security concern with the Android CupCake update before it could be sent out by T-Mobile over the air (OTA) to US G1 phones.
T-Mobile stated earlier this week that they are delaying the new Android release to the US which was already behind this same update already sent out to those in the UK.
Apparently those that already updated their G1 to the CupCake release outside the US or manually are receiving a security patch update for the 1.5 Firmware directly from Google.
Google And Blog reader Abdel has reported that he received this update in Egypt and after he has noticed his G1 became noticeably slower.
New items he found after the security update:
- System Tutorial - A step by step tutorial on how to use your Android Phone
- Tactile feedback – when setting the pattern to unlock your phone it will vibrate each time you touch a dot
Hopefully this will all be ironed out when Cupcake is FINALLY released from Guantanamo and enters the US – no reports on if it was waterboarded.
