Adam - New Update (NIP20040211) and Update 1.03 from NotionInkHacks

Time for another update

I was very happy that the update process this time was more stable and more tested. The update process itself with instructions has been posted by NotionInkFan, NotionInkHacks, etc. The fact I am happy about is that NotionInk mailed all adam owners that a new update is available with detailed instructions and a good summary of changes included in the update. This is a major step in the right direction. Of course this might not be new or innovative but it dos show that team NI has put in a real effort to overcome the short comings. Rohan and team should be appreciated for this move.

The update itself for fairly simple to install. The manual does provide all the necessary steps.

The important part is that after the update adam feels much better. There are not much force close like before. The Eden UI (Panels) seems more responsive and quick.

Next obvious step was to look for Root + Market and as always friends at NotionInkHacks had update 1.03 ready. Tried it immediately and the update was quick and simple. (Hardly took couple of minutes)

Reboot and there it is android market. Also the google account setup in the market worked with no problems. (In the earlier updates it was difficult to configure and sometimes needed a work around with youtube app)

Updates about some apps:

1. Tried Tango for video calls - The audio call itself works great. When I switch to video, within couple of seconds the call gets disconnected. Have reported this to support at NI.

2. Tried couple of benchmarks like Neocore and Quadrant. No major improvements/degradations noticed. Didn't expect any improvements in this area.

More updates to come tomorrow.


    We still dont have a phone app - do we?

    @A Kumar - Not yet :-(

    Hi Ganesh,

    How much tax did you end up paying on top of the Adam price + shipping cost.

    I ordered a LCD(3G version) today. Waiting for my Adam !


    @Abhishek - I didn't pay anything as tax.
