Premium Account holders can now access a new beta version of DeviceUpdate. Changes include:

Version – 13 June 2009

  • Added detection of screen size as a backup to known device IDs.
  • Changed logic for getting Device Model to hopefully be more precice with less variation.
  • What this now means is that we should VERY rarely show the well known “Unsupported Device” message to people as we now use the following methods:

    1. Look for a known hardware ID to get the type of device.
    2. If method #1 fails, we get the screen size and show a list of applications for that screen size.
    3. If both #1 and #2 fails, panic 😉

    You can get the new beta version here.

    Oh, and DeviceUpdate has now served over 530,000 applications in over 260,000 sessions!

    Release 13.4 is now available of my replacement ROMs for Dopod 838 Pro and compatibly phones. Changes include:
    * Fully integrated DeviceUpdate and DU’s AutoInstall feature into the ROM.
    * Removed package ‘protection’ to allow other chefs to pull apart my ROMs for their own purposes.
    * Removed ClearVue PDF Viewer from normal build due to problems with some PDFs. Install Adobe PDF reader via DeviceUpdate if you need a PDF reader.

    As always, it’s available for download here.
