    Newest Android Distribution Chart from Google Shows Spike in Jelly Bean & More


    Google's devs just shared the latest Android distribution chart showing the adoption rate of the various versions of the Android OS. Predictably, Gingerbread is still in the lead by a fairly large margin, and Ice Cream Sandwich is in second place. What is really interesting is that there has been a large spike in Jelly Bean growth, which could signal the start of less fragmentation in the future.

    The stats indicate that Gingerbread is sitting at 50.8% of the market, while ICS eked up a minuscule 2% to total of 27.5%. The interesting trend is that Jelly Bean is now up to 6.7%, which is double the amount of the last distribution chart. It probably shouldn't be too much of a surprise considering all of the nexus devices that were either released with or recently upgraded to Jelly Bean. Regardless, it's great to see things moving in a forward direction, and especially how quickly Jelly Bean is growing. You can see more charts and statistics at the source link below. Can you believe there are still over 10% of devices out there which still have Froyo?

    Well if you you want to update the stock o/s for your OG Droid you just have to go to phone info and then system updates. If you want to root it and install custom firmware, then XDA is the resource you want to use.

    More on topic, it's sad that so many devices are running Gingerbread over a year after ICS launched. And I'm sure the Jelly Bean number will spike hugely when they finally roll it out on all of the S3's that are out there.

    It's not that surprising when you think about it. Pretty much any phone that did not come with a dual core CPU and at least 1GB of RAM was left behind. Which pretty much alienates any phone not released a year ago.

    Thanks for responding. New abbreviations are daunting! So I do have the OG Droid currently at 2.2.3 via OTA updates !

    So yes my question was about rooting / upgrading, if possible.

    Found this post: xda-developers - View Single Post - [How To] Root, Backup, and ROM Your CDMA (nTelos) Milestone
    His last sentence is what I started to post.

    You guys need to write: Android upgrade for dummies ! LOL
    Thanks
