Motorola’s Photon Q 4G LTE for Sprint is now receiving a much welcomed OTA software update. No, it isn’t Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. However, the incremental firmware upgrade bumps the version number to 7.7.1Q-6_SPR-125_ASA-10 and brings some enhanced functionality along with several important bug fixes.
Improved text messaging when requesting usage and upgradeability through Sprint Zone
Select number of users to access Wi-Fi hotspot
Random power cycle when using Wi-Fi Direct
Manually send or auto-sync emails from outbo
Seamless international text messaging
Faster launch and playback using the YouTube application
Improved browsing with Google Chrome for Android Mobile Browser
Improved MMS functionality
Sprint notes that the upgrade is rolling out in stages, so if you don’t initially see the update it shouldn’t be too far off. Of course, you can always head into Settings > System Updates > Update Motorola Software to retrieve the new firmware manually. Once you’ve updated, be sure to let us know what you think of the new software. We’ll see you on the other side.
