Good for Enterprise – Android End-of-Software Updates for Android 1.5 Devices
The next release of Good for Enterprise – Android will not support devices running the Android 1.5 OS (aka Cupcake). As a result, Good for Enterprise – Android v1.6.3 is the last client software version that will support devices running Android 1.5.
What this means for your users on Android 1.5 devices:
- These users will no longer receive update notifications and will not be able to upgrade to new versions of Good for Enterprise – Android released to the Android Market.
- These users can continue to run the current version of Good for Enterprise – Android (v1.6.3) available in the Android Market.
- If available, these users should upgrade the device OS to a newer version. Most Android devices receive an automatic notification when an OS upgrade is available for download over-the air. However, some devices require a tethered upgrade.
- These users will no longer see Good for Enterprise in the Android Market. If users need to install Good for Enterprise on Android OS v1.5 devices after we release the next version of our app, they will need to download the Good for Enterprise application from the following location: www.good.com/android/download/15rom/gfe-signed-aligned.apk. The Motorola Backflip will not be able to install Good for Enterprise as AT&T does not allow sideloads.
Good will continue to offer technical support for Good for Enterprise on supported Android 1.5 devices to its paid support customers. Devices are typically supported 18 months after initial certification. For specific support end dates, please refer to the Supported Devices tool in the Good Monitoring Portal.
The following devices were initially released on the Android 1.5 OS:
- HTC Droid Eris
- HTC Hero
- Motorola Backflip
- Motorola CLIQ

To help mitigate any transition issues, please advise your users to upgrade the device OS or upgrade to a new Android handheld supported by Good. For the full list of supported Android devices, visit the Supported Devices tool on good.com or on the Good Monitoring Portal.
