How to update to android 2.3 Gingerbread on Dell Streak 5

Dell Streak 5 android 2.3 Gingerbread update guide:

1. Download Streakdroid5-2.0.zip from the links here
2. Boot into StreakMod or Clockwork Recovery
3. Select Update from Zip File > Select Zip File From SD Card > StreakDroid5-2.0.zip
4. Wait for installation.
5. First Boot may take longer than a normal boot. Things are being installed, stuff is being generated.

I advice you learn more about this on the XDA-developers here, I think you should donate to the developer if you think it is great.

@Peddi reddy
You do not need link.
Just go on the menu “About phone” then “Sistem updates” and do it! :)

@sharad:1. maybe you need to extract StreakDroid5-2.0.zip then do it again..
2. or rename the file “StreakDroid5-2.0.zip” to “update.zip” (without quotes)
that’s all i know :)
