Official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is now available for the Dell Streak 5

Official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is now available for the Dell Streak 5
Remember when the Dell Streak 5 brought big in a literally big way – with its still perceived to be monstrous sized 5” display? Yes, it has been long discontinued in the US, but nevertheless, it’s getting one snazzy update that no doubt brings some surprise.

Specifically, the official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the original Streak is now available and ready for the taking, thanks to the team over at xda-developers. With the sizable 155MB update, users are required though to have version 350 of the stock recovery installed on the device prior to installation. Once that’s all squared away, you’ll have your Dell Stream 5 transformed completely to an almost new device with Gingerbread.

Of course, this is wonderful news to anyone sporting the aging Dell Steak 5, especially when the company has no plans to bring its Dell Streak 7 up to Ice Cream Sandwich – so yeah, it’s undoubtedly great that the original Streak is getting some love.

Naturally, before proceeding to install the update, just be sure to back up your important files in the unfortunate event that something occurs during the process.
