Default Gingerbread Delayed for N1...Again?

Has Gingerbread for the N1 been delayed again?

Gingerbread Headed For Nexus One Officially, Droid Incredible and Droid Original ROMed

everyday I check Google for the update, and this came up today.

It was back on Dec 6th where they said it was going to be a few weeks (supposed before Xmas release)

Now are they delaying it into January?

They said it was coming in the next few weeks back at the end of November, and the beginning of dec something was announced, and now they're saying the same thing.

All they're saying is it's coming, and then don't have a specific time when. Which we all already knew. If they had a set date, or deadline, they'd of announced that Gingerbread will be out on so and so. They clearly don't have a set date, which is probably for the better, and so they're not saying when it's coming officially.

The update doesn't bring much to the average user, so personally I don't really care, but I know how annoying it is to be checking everyday in hope. So my advice, forget about it, you'll hear about it when it comes, and once you get it you'll probably realize a week later that it really wasn't worth the time of checking everyday.

I wouldn't worry too much on that. The froyo OTA update started rolling out 3 weeks AFTER Froyo was officially announced. I expect something similar with Gingerbread.

I doubt it, just in case there are issues with it, it'll be performed in business hours so they can keep an eye on how its going, not when everyone is off on holiday.

Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy all year and all I want for Christmas is some Gingerbread with a side of net neutrality. Please don't let the greedy corporations ruin the holidays for America.

Your friend,

I say Gingerbread rolls out to the Nexus starting 12-27. You figure Google held Gingerbread back at the request of Samsung. Not to cripple the Nexus S sales. So I say the first batch or OTA goes out 12-27.

Frustrating, been a long time since we saw footage of the nexus one running an early gingerbread build. You'd think they'd release it to us sooner if it's been developed and tested on our phones anyway :/

Frankly, I doubt they would release it during the holidays for the same reason that the (US) TV networks only show reruns-- no one is paying attention, they are off on Holidays with their families. Yes, I know this is an international forum, but Google generally behaves (for better or for worse) like a US Corporation.

but wouldn't this be a reason for releasing during the holidays to the N1 crowd? The N1 owners are not your typical consumer so they are going to be critical and knit picking the upgrade. You don't want attention to these things and in a sense, you want this group to be vocal but not put out to the general press.

Therefore, they should be giving us N1 users Gingerbread before the start of 2011.

huh, sound good or what? :-)

That'll be the first thing I do when it drops too. I'm really curious to see if the performance improvements will show on the Nexus One or if it's more down to the Nexus S hardware.

Can't wait to compare the two. Both are awesome phones.

How would it cripple nexus s sales as the n1 is now harder to get hold of?

I'm not 100% sure but I'm assuming he/she meant that a lot of buyers for the NS are N1 owners and they are are waiting to see what Gingerbread looks like on the N1 before purchasing a NS. Those that are not patient may just purchase one anyway. If Gingerbread comes out on N1 too early and ends up looking great on the N1 then many potential NS buyers may just pass.

At this rate, we'll have a Cyanogen ROM with Gingerbread before the OTA is rolled out.

Wait...Cyanogen doesn't have GB running on its rom? Aren't they the first to port a new Android version onto their ROM?

Actually there probably won't be, as they need the new kernel source.

Micromod777 has an N1 Gingerbread ROM now for two weeks and it's great. Look for it on XDA.

There are 2.3 ROMs for the N1, but none are duly functional yet.

Stupid auto correct, I meant fully. Yes, many are fine for daily use, but you'll find something like the video recording isnt quite right.

Oh, they released it back on Christmas Day but some greedy kid grabbed it all and is still hiding in some corner eating it. :P

But really, yeah, I'm pretty much ready. In the past I've considered just waiting out the OTA but I think I'll do the card install as soon as it is avail.

Anyone think that this might have something to do with the gbread delay:
Nexus s random reboot problem Google is on it
not to mention the whole sms bug thing. could they be holding off to give us a better build

That's a possibility. I am VERY curious, to the point where it's frustrating... but what consoles me is the thought that 2.2.1 is running very well, and I can't say that I NEED to upgrade this instant.

You all bought a N1...Root your phones already and put on one of the many gingerbread roms out. Most out are more than stable for daily use. Still dont understand why people bought the best Dev. phone out and dont use it for its intended purpose...

THIS TIMES A MILLION. Flashing a rom isn't going to destroy your phone. Idk why people think that

What rusty said! If I'm flashing a rom, I do it because it will make my phone more functional then before, not when it'll lose me important functions. And gingerbread really isn't worth that imo.
That being said, I wouldn't mind google finally releasing 2.3 for us, beginning to feel a bit left out in the cold by now

Cyanogen CM7 is Gingerbread plus so why wait longer for Vanilla GB when you can get the best custom ROM now.

Android And Me

"Most people who own a Nexus One assumed they would have Android 2.3 running on their phone by now. Google employees began tweeting back in December that an over-the-air(OTA) update should arrive in the coming weeks and the official @GoogleNexus account also tweeted that message as recent as January 4th.

When Google released the source code for Android 2.2, an OTA update for the Nexus One was available just six days later. The source code for Android 2.3 was released on December 17th and now a month later people are still patiently waiting.

Now JR Raphael of Computerwold reports that a Google representative told him “there have been no unexpected hurdles and that the rollout should be starting soon.” I just checked our vault and this is the fourth story we have run that says the Nexus One 2.3 update is “coming soon” so I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting.

Even though Google claims there have been no unexpected hurdles, I have to wonder if the random reboot bug found in the Nexus S could be the source of the delay. The Nexus S is the only device that is currently shipping with Android 2.3 and comments from Google suggest that the bug is software based and will be fixed with a future OTA update.

Hopefully Nexus One owners should not have to wait that much longer. There are quite a few custom Android 2.3 ROMs already available, but I know many people just want the stock build from Google.

How much longer do you think it will be before Google pushes out the official 2.3 update?"

Perhaps this is another cause of the delay?

IMHO ...

Instead of releasing 2.3 on the N1 first and let the community weed out the bugs, they allowed the manipulation from Samsung (the almighty dollar at work) to have their device be the first '2.3 device' when in all actuality it has shot them both in the foot with all the bad publicity its received. An embarrassment really.

Now, ICCL about all the bells and whistles, but a stable phone is essential and The GOOG has dropped the ball with this one.

Could be wrong as we really don't know what's happening on the inside.. but I think it's a security thing. The mobile world has changed radically since N1. There are more bad guys out there trying to get access to our personal data. 2.3 is probably such a big open upgrade that google may have underestimated time time required to make it secure.

My phone works fine as is. Give me the goods once it is safe.
