info_update is a debugging/placeholder block exclusive to Bedrock Edition that generates in place of blocks that were removed or not yet added.
The block cannot be obtained, without breaking it when already in a world. Its tool requirements are unknown.
Also, deleting an add-on or loading a world in an older version will result in a block similar to the info_update block. It can be obtained by breaking the block, but appears in the inventory as "Unknown" and not as tile.info_update.name. The player can break this block instantly. Therefore, they are probably not the same block.
Also, if the resource pack is missing in the add-on, all blocks in the add-on use the texture of the info_update block.
The update game blocks are a set of two similar placeholder blocks present in Bedrock Edition. These blocks are placed in the world when the game detects an invalid block ID. (This means it is the substitute to the missing texture block that appears in Java Edition) Shovels are ineffective against this block despite the dirt sounds and texture.
They are only obtainable with
/setblock or with inventory or world editors. This block is used only for blocks with invalid IDs. If the block ID is valid, but has no texture, it sometimes appears as a magenta black checkerboard block instead of this block. Of note is that this block's texture is itself called a missing texture and named accordingly in the game's texture files.
The block's texture is shared by reserved6.
|Name||Namespaced ID||Numeric ID||Form||Translation key|
|Pocket Edition Alpha|
|v0.1.3||Added blocks with id 248 and 249.|
|Block 248 contains the text "upd ate!" and block 249 "ate! upd" such that when placed adjacent to each other, the word "update!" would be complete on one line.|
|v0.2.1 alpha2||The top left pixel of the texture used for block 248 is now completely transparent, causing it to render black on the block.|
|In item form, it renders transparent.|
|v0.5.0||With the addition of tooltips, blocks 248 and 249 both display the name "tile.info_update.name<".|
|v0.8.0||build 2||info update's texture has been reverted.|
|The texture of block 249 has been removed and the block now looks identical to block 248.|
