I just bought my Dell Streak the other day in Hong KOng. I would like to update the Android system.
My problem is,
I have no idea of how to check the current version of the device.
In the setting menu, "About Phone"--> "System Update", I tried and an error message came out from my browser, saying something like "runtime error", and it asks me to create a file in root directory o fix the problem....but I am not that sophisticated in such thing. Could anyone help?
First I would like to make sure if my device is up-to-date in terms of Andriod system.

When my Dell Streak is on standby mode, I see a line on the left hand side,
"This phone belongs to:"
Could anyone here tell me how to enter my name to make just make myself happier? With great thanks.

The phone looks amazing. Bought one from Dell. It was lost in shipping. After a month of calling them without a returned call, I had to get my money back through Visa. Their customer service department is deplorable. Good luck if you have any trouble out of it.
Deep, 19 Dec 2010Hey All, I just bought the Dell Streak (Ver 2.2). Its great. the functions are purely smooth. ... moreconvert videos for streak
Step I: Launch the Handbrake application on your computer and select the video source
In the menu on the right-hand side, select the iPod Legacy preset
Select your video source by clicking on the Source dropdown menu (we used a DVD for our testing purposes)
Select the destination and name for the file once it has been converted (both the .mp4 and .m4v extension work for the Streak)
Confirm that the container is set to MP4 File and that Large file size, Web optimized, and iPod 5G support are unchecked
Step II: Adjust Handbrake's Video Settings
Uncheck Keep Aspect Ratio
Set the Streak Width and Height (the Streak supports a maximum of 800 x 480 pixels)
Set Handbrake's encoding settings by clicking on the Video tab
Confirm the Video Codec is set as H.264 (x264)
Framerate (FPS) should be set to Same as source
Under Quality, select the Avg Bitrate (kbps) and change it to 1500
Step III: Adjust audio settings
Set Handbrake's audio settings by clicking on the Audio tab
Confirm the Audio Codec is AAC (faac)
Mixdown should be set to Stereo
Change the Samplerate to 48
Change the Bitrate to 160
Step IV: Save as a preset for future use
Click on the Presets menu and select New Preset
Enter Streak in the dialog box and click Add
"Streak" will now be saved as a preset and listed on the right hand side in Handbrake to be used in the future
Step V: Convert the video and copy to your Streak
Click on the Start button in Handbrake
A command line/DOS window will open and start to process the video conversion
Once the conversion is done, mount your Streak on to your computer via USB
Once mounted, create a folder named Video in the root folder on the Streak
Copy converted file into the Video folder
That's it! The converted video can now be played on your Streak using the Gallery app. It should look fantastic on the Streak's screen as long as the original source was of good quality.
A few things to keep in mind when converting video:
The Streak does not like video file sizes over 2GB (the settings in Step II should help insure that the file size is kept under 2GB)
Your converted video will only be as good as the source video
If your source is over 800 x 480, you must be sure to set the width and height to a maximum of 800 x 480 as noted in Step II
