UPDATE: CM resumes the JB update for Flare starting on June 10. Details here - June 5 2013, 11:09 AM
All of CM Flare fans are so excited (even me) with the improvement results of having a Flare update. We have new versions of leaked screenshots that were posted previously here
The new user interface of Notifications now added with a total of 6 toggle buttons from a 7 toggles buttons, the Silent/vibrate toggle has been removed
|New UI of Camera App|
|The Messaging App has a fresh look however the Send 1 and Send 2 buttons are still there, which occupies a little bit of its space.|
|A more concise connection mode clearly defines each of the features function when you try to connect your phone on a PC.|
|New Jellybean Lockscreen|
|The New App drawer UI is now transparent, and the icons were replaced by Square-like icon, unlike rounded edges on ICS.|
New Screenshots, but some answers are still unanswered.
One user posted his screenshots on the official group of CM Flare that he has already updated his phone on a CM Service center located at Puregold Taguig. At that time, he tried to update his phone to JB, and he did not fail, SC accepted his phone he left it for an hour and when he got back his unit, VOILA! it is already updated to JB. And as expected Many flare users asked to have it run on benchmark tests, to identify bugs like multi-touch and camera force close issue, test RAM usage, gaming performance, battery and its overall performance after the update, but unfortunately, he wasn't able to give us these information.
However OTA or (Over-The-Air) Update is not possible
Developers and experts from the said group warned that it may be risky to update your phone to JB on your own.
"The update is a long way process and too complicated, It involves repartioning your memory, and some nerdy stuff."--- says one of them.
Devs and experts promised that they may be able to help users in updating their device if they have completed everything that they are working on to make sure that Jelly Bean will be accessible to everyone, especially users having no CM Service Centers near them as well as those who do not have the luxury of time visiting one.
Tomorrow is "D-day" (the day), June 1 2013
June 1 will be the final verdict, to tell whether the JB update is a Pop or Flop. So don't forget to bring with you your official receipt and warranty cards before heading to a near CM Service Center.
Rest assured that we are doing our best to become one of the first blog site to demonstrate Flare after updating it to the Jelly Bean.
