I updated only yesterday and so far I can only strongly recommend you to wait.

Aside the SDcard issue I'm noticing a very high battery drain.

With the latest Android 5 patch the bluetooth started drainging the battery, 40% in average.

I was hoping to fix it but it looks got even worse, have to check tomorrow with a normal usage.

Otherwise will try the painful but effective factory defaults reset.

I updated a couple of days ago and everything seems fine with the battery. I needed about 4gb of internal memory free to get it to install.

I followed what Sprograt on Hot UK deals suggested to clean up after the update:

"And another tip after updating to MM turn off the phone and go into recovery by pressing Volume + and the Power button at the same time and when the "Powered by Android" screen appears release the Power button then using the Volume down button go down to Clear Cache Partition and then press the Power button and the following screen will ask you do you want to Wipe Cache use Volume down to highlight Yes and then press the Power button then another screen pops up with Reboot System Now already highlighted just press the Power button and the phone reboots, this process solves a lot of problems after updating firmware including sorting out heavy battery usage."

I used M1hai1's solution over at modaco to sort the SD adoptable storage problem out.

Hope that helps

I updated to Android 6.0.1, build no VDF-995NB02-UK10d, successfully, on 15/02/2017. To the unexpected "new SD card detected", I responded with "set up as portable storage", and afterwards set camera to store in SD card, as I had had it before. So far, I have noticed:

 

1. Battery life in standby, in a house where there is no signal, seems to be greatly increased (from 2 days to 4 days).

 

2. In "Gallery", there seems to be two identical "Album" thumbnails for each folder: I daren't delete any because the folders themselves aren't duplicated. Is there a way to correct this?

I don't have the thumbnails issue, I'd try to remove the ".thumbnails" folder manually on the internal storage and sd card or use a cleaning up.

 

I still have the Bluetooth issue so I'll have to do a factory reset.

 

After few days it goes much better: I can move a lot of apps to the sdcard and in general works much better.

 

The battery life is greatly increased especially when in idle with doze.

I also use Greenify and works very well now. I had 0% battery drain for 3 hours yesterday night, very helpful if you forget to plug in the charger.

 

All the annoying bugs are gone: lags, freezes, battery overheating, mobile radio crashes, lag while charging, etc

 

The device is indeed snappier as it should have been and Google Now does not drain 20% battery in background.

Do I need to do anything special to get the update to work?

My phone keeps telling me there is an update, and every time I download and install it the install fails with a Twitter.apk error.

I have tried removing the existing Twitter app in case that was confusing the install, and it made no difference.

 

After reading about install failing due to SD cards I tried taking out the SD card and installing, and that failed as well.

@mannix: I've just had a look and there is just over 6Gb of internal storage available.

I tried that, and it still doesn't work. It keeps saying Twitter.apk has unexpected contents.

That's really weird...

Did you reset from Android settings menu or from the Recovery menu?

It works better from the Recovery usually.

It was from Android settings. If it is the Twitter app (and not a red herring) I did have to re-install it after the reset.

 

I've just managed to get everything back so I'm not in a hurry to factory reset again.

It always fails at the same point: Twitter.apk.

AFAIK Twitter is not provided as installed application, if it's complaining about it just after the factory reset then probably it didn't reset.

Your choice but I'd do a proper reset otherwise you are probably going to have some other issues sooner or later.

Which option should I use to reset? Last time I did the Settings -> Backup & Reset -> Factory reset option.

I did have to reinstall the Twitter application so this presumably isn't in the factory default.

Hi @mentalis

 

We'd recommend removing the app that's causing the error and then doing a factory reset.

 

Once you've done that, install the latest update and finally reinstall the app once that's completed. 

 

Let us know how you get on. 

 

Thanks,

Hi Amanda,

 

Unfortunately that hasn't worked either. I have attached (a very blurry) photo of the error. It's saying:

 

Source: Vodafone/P839V55/P839V55:5.1.1/LMY47V/20161227.134319.15534
Target: Vodafone/P839V55/P839V55:6.0.1/MMB29M/20161224.153533.17242

"/system/partner-app/Twitter.apk" has unexpected contents.

@E:Abnormal exit, path @/cache/recovery/block.map, status: 7

 

Thanks,

 

Nigel
