You can check for your self if you have received the update by clicking on the System Update app in your app drawer. Now for those who don’t like to wait (like me) can manually update Hot Note and Hot Note Pro as well. In this post I will provide step by step instructions to update Hot Note. (Do not worry it is not that hard). NOTE: Anybody who uses this method and something goes wrong with their device, Talk Android Phones will not be held responsible in any way. If your device gets bricked, you must have messed up the steps. Also if you have rooted your device, Un-root it first. Well if you have read the above notice carefully then you are good to go.

Download MediaTek VCOM Tools: Go to this link and follow the instructions given. Make sure you disable signature verification first before installing this driver. For added help here is one more link. After both the above steps are completed you need to open Flash_Tool.exe (found in the SP Flash Tool folder).

Select Firmware Upgrade option You can see the images below to know where “Scatter Loading” and “Firmware Upgrade” can be found.

The next Android OS is called Android 6.0 Marshmallow [Official]

The next Android OS is called Android 6.0 Marshmallow [Official]

We are just a month away from Google showing off its new Android 6.0 operating system code named Marshmallow.  They will do so, with the launch of the two new Nexus devices. One is made by LG (Nexus 5 2015) and its brother will be bigger like the Nexus 6 but built by Huawei. Google had kept a lot of people guessing what their next Android OS will be named, when early this year, Android M as introduced. If the preview builds are to be considered. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings with it a number of changes, visual and internal. The first thing you will notice when you turn on an Android 6.0 running device is the new boot animation, next you can see that the app launcher  has changed, it now comes with a search option which could turn out to be very handy, if you have many app screens. Home screen rotation is finally here (though some app launchers have done this job for us in the past). Also, Quick settings tab can now be arranged. Now talking about internal changes, Android 6.0 will let users give the power to choose which permission you want which app to have. So, if you do not allow an app to use your mic, it wont be allowed to use it. Finger print scanning is also built in the OS’s architecture, which means improved finger print scanning in supported devices. Lastly there is a cool new function which lets you decide what notifications to show on the status bar. For example if you always have your bluetooth on, and do not want the icon to take the space then simply remove it.  This means a much cleaner looking status bar. Now it is just a matter of waiting until Google shows off the final build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the world in...
