Verizon DROID DNA update adds TalkBack, not Sense 5

An update has begun arriving for Verizon DROID DNA users this morning. But before anyone gets super excited, this is not the Sense 5 update that was revealed back in September. At this time it looks like that update is still in the works and for now, DROID DNA users will have to settle for this minor update.

The update that is heading to devices now will bring you to software version 2.07.605.1 710RD with baseband 1.01.04.0308. As we often see, Verizon has this one listed as an update that is "designed to improve the performance." To that point, this update has just one item listed in the changelog; TalkBack.

Support for the TalkBack feature has been added; This enhancement makes Internet accessibility easier for the visually impaired.

Anyway, while this will likely be disappointing for those who were waiting for Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5, this could still be a worthwhile update for some users. That being the case, the update, which measures in at 33MB in size can be found by navigating to Menu -> Settings -> Software Update -> Check Now.

Alternatively, you could also take the casual approach, which involves little more than sitting back and waiting for the update notification to arrive on your handset. Of course, from that point you will only need to follow the prompts. With that, DROID DNA users can grab this update and then go back to waiting for Sense 5, which we hope will be arriving sooner rather than later.

    Well. I suppose even just a minor update I’ll never use is better than no update whatsoever. Still looking forward to sense 5 though. Was interesting though. My update was 15.5 MB. Not 33 MB. Wonder what that’s about. Anyhow, thanks for the info!

        I think the OTA .zip file is 15.5MB, however .zip files are compressed so I believe what they are getting at is that it requires 33MB of free space to install.

    my update was also 15.5 MBs, was so excited, BUT than the reality kicked in and was extremely disappointed noticing that there was no SENSE 5 or at least ANDROID 4.3… not much of a satisfied Verizon costumer anymore
