This new build is the second one based on Android 7.1 Nougat and comes with updated keyboard mapping, better hardware compatibility, as well as some minor tweaks and bug fixes.

Not too long ago, Phoenix 2.0 arrived to bring Android 7.1 Nougat to the PC world. Now, the time has come for an update that takes care of most issues discovered in the meantime, also delivering a few new features.

According to the official forum post about the version 2.1.0, these are its highlights:

  • keyboard mapping updated to version 2.5, featuring smart casting for Strike of Kings
  • optimized Phoenix OS downloader
  • window size now saving properly on restart
  • hardware compatibility improvements for sound cards, network adapters, and so on
  • legacy boot support for "Start Phoenix system" shortcut

To install Phoenix OS 2.1.0, the user can take advantage of the EXE installer or can go for the traditional way and download a bootable ISO image. Both setup methods are available for 32-bit and 64-bit devices.

Since it seems that this version comes with quite a few bugs as well - at least we can say that by looking at the forum page mentioned earlier.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
