I really love how hard the Mudita team works to improve Pure.
I will install the update today and then report after a few days of testing whether anything has changed noticeably :slight_smile:

Just updated from v1.6.0 to v1.7.0.

Had a strange encounter though. The Mudita Pure stated that the update was successful and started the reboot as usual. But then, on startup it hung showing as message at the bottom of the screen “eMMC init error: -1”. Had to remove the battery temporary to get the Mudita Pure up and running again. This was the first time I have experienced such an error.

As always, the update went off without a hitch. Everything else follows…

Quite like the new icon for when an emoji can’t be shown!

I had a crash on update from 1.6 to 1.7 on first update attempt, but on immediately retrying, a successful update with no issue.

Better compatibility with car bluetooth systems, and T9 text input would top this off as the perfect phone for me.

@marko Thanks for the feedback & the kind words. I’re glad to hear that you’re satisfied.

@sv3np It’s funny that you bring this up because this is EXACTLY what happened to me on Friday when I updated my Pure.
I just spoke to the team about it & they asked to see your logs & mine as well, so they can compare. Can you send them vis Mudita Center & DM me your serial number.

@grilledcheesebb I’m lobbying for a CHEESE EMOJI :slight_smile: :cheese: :cheese: :cheese: :joy:

@urszula I sent you the SN as DM. Did you note it? I also provided logs. Did the team made up their mind if to proceed with this matter?

@sv3np Yes. I passed everything on to our team. I also sent them my logs so that they can compare the two & see what they can come up with.
Off the top of their head, they thought it might have been a brief error, but nothing serious. However, we’ll see.

Is there any information about when the next update will be released? And what improvements will be included? There are still a lot of things to come.
Phone calls via LTE, manual switching between 2G and 4G, reworking of the media player, possibly T9 when writing text messages, etc…
I am already very excited :slight_smile:

Unfortunately, I’ve had crashes again from time to time lately. The Pure froze when writing SMS. You could still get back to the main screen, but you couldn’t shut down the device.
Only removing the battery helped.
And unfortunately, there are also problems with reception more often. Despite good LTE reception outdoors, the device automatically switches to 2G where there is only one or no bar signal. It takes up to three minutes until there is LTE reception again, which is why I would find the manual setting of the reception mode, whether LTE or 2G, very helpful (as has been mentioned here in the forum several times).
And every now and then, the device asks you to enter the SIM pin in the middle of operation. I wonder if this means that the SIM card is not recognised for a short moment. I have now changed from SIM1 to SIM2, maybe it’s a problem with the slot!

@marko There’s a plan to release 1.7.1 this month, but I will ask our team for more specifics & get back to you.
