Micromax A70 will Run Gingerbread + Easy Fix for Video Calling on Fring

Browse This Page

We mentioned in our review that the Micromax A70 was not upgradeable to 2.3, after we published that today, we got a call. According to our source Micromax the A70 will run Android 2.3 and there seems to be an easy way to do it. We are trying to get the process and will give a quick tutorial, possibly a video tutorial on how to go about it soon after we have tried it ourselves. 

Also to make Fring Video calls, an easy fix was recommended by one of our readers. All you need to do it fire up Fring,  then quit it , open the camera and switch to the front facing camera, and then reopen Fring, Voila Video calls will now work

Note : if Video calls don’t work : jump into bring settings and make sure video calls is ticked. Thats all , we tested it and it works fine.

This however will not work on Skype, even the hacked version of Skype.

Micromax says “Thank you for your Email, we would like to inform you that the device cannot be upgraded.”
