Android 2.1 Update for Dell Streak Leaked in the UK

August 13, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Well, it seems that Streak users from the UK will have something interesting to enjoy while the rest of us watch in envy – an Android 2.1 update which has been confirmed to come from Dell is now installing on devices all over the country, though it’s only available for devices locked on O2 contracts.

The update can be downloaded from a link which was released by accident from within the company (apparently) though it’ll probably be taken down soon enough – and users are reporting various new improvements in the update. Among them are a 720p camcoder, a new and improved keyboard, a live wallpaper function, and many others.

If you want to install the update yourself, just copy the .pkg file on to your SD card, then rename it to “Update.pkg”, fire up your phone in recovery mode (which is done by holding both volume keys pressed before turning it on), and you’ll get a prompt asking you if you want to recover from the file you’ve put on the card – but bear in mind this will also erase your phone’s contents!
