    My G1 owning friend has his Rc0…where’s mine???

    ALSO – Can the RC9 provide flash, v-keyboard, a butler, a sportscar and some liposuction please???

  • Simon

    I live in West Sussex and received my RC9 update around 1.30am this morning.

    I got my UK RC9 while roaming in the US this afternoon, but I haven’t seen a single new feature yet…

  • Dave Lee

    I got mine on sunday at about 13:00 hours.. No obvious added features. My memory card still won’t mount on my mac :o( and blueooth file transfer is still missing which sucks but otherwise it’s fine.

  • Matt fillary

    i have the update and i also have the paid apps option in the marketplace, the only thing missing is the apps. It just says “No matching content in Android Market”

  • http://www.stevencadd.co.uk Steve

    Got update as I turned my phone on at midday.

    Matt is indeed correct, go to market>apps/games>all apps/games, hit the menu button, change view and you can now select all apps, paid apps or free apps. Sadly a “No matching content in Android Market” does indeed display, but one assumes the apps just need releasing to the UK market first – shouldn’t be long now! If you don’t already have a Google Checkout account, I’d start thinking about it if you own a G1…..

  • http://www.stevencadd.co.uk Steve

    Thinking about it, I’ve never pressed the Menu button in the Market before… Is the My Downloads button new?

    Maybe there’s more.

  • Craig

    I haven’t recieved yet; in central London.

    *sigh*…

  • Andrew

    No update here yet in manchester…. :-(

  • Baldev Singh

    Not much change I have seen so far, would be happy if there was soft keyboard and so on…………..

  • CDOS PCDOCTOR

    My wife has a white phone and she got her update at 3am 28th feb – mine is black g1 and got mine about the same time as everyone else – there are subtle differences between the white and black I generally software right from when we purchased Nov 1 2008 They messed the back lighting on the white g1 keyboard . The email doesn,t error anymore so that’s good.

    Just got mine in east sussex. Can’t see any changes tho. Still no video on cam!

  • Glenn Miles

    I got my upgrade yesterday and now my wifi won’t stay on. Anyone know how to rollback?

  • Glenn Miles

    Ah, now I’m getting a warning message “Process android.process.acore is not responding”. Anything with “core” in the title that isn’t working properly can’t be good!

  • Max

    I’ve got the JF RC9 update, non-uk SIMs get Latitude from what I’ve gathered but no voice search. Additionally msn, yahoo and aim have been removed from the IM application.

  • Glenn Miles

    Fixed my wifi problem with a factory reset after update.

  • Jason Dodd

    I received this update at 1.30am on the 11th feb if i remember rightly. not actualy found any new or reasonable changes :S

  • Manpaal Singh

  • danny

    another thing.. how long did peoples sd card take to prepare iv had it showin for a good 40minutes

  • HelenAnne

    My SD card has been preparing for about 5 hours now.

    Don’t like the look of it! Won’t be happy if this update has messed my SD card up!

    Anybody else had similar experiences?

  • Jason Dodd
