Default Error Manually Updating to 2.3.3

Hi,

Trying to manually update to 2.3.3 to see if my darn Home button issues will be fixed, so I am following the instructions here: How to Download & Install Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread On Nexus S [Guide] , but upon booting the .ZIP from my "SDCard (lol)", it attempts to run the package, but then returns the following error:

"Verifying update package...
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted"

Any idea what that means exactly??

Thanks,

Z

I was getting the error also. I redownloaded the firmware and tried again and it worked. I also didn't bother renaming the file to update.zip either.

There is a folder called sdcard which is mounted as your SD partition. It's still internal storage, but looks and acts like an SD card so that apps that need an SD card will still function. If you plug your Nexus S into your computer via USB and select the storage option, this sdcard folder is shown as the root directory; however, if using adb or accessing USB storage from the recovery menu, you'll likely be seeing the Nexus S' true root directory.

I pasted the file into the Nexus S root folder.. No SDcard sub-folder or anything, just straining in the root folder, and it worked .

Off-topic and not even related to Nexus S.

Assuming you copied the file over via the normal USB Storage method, that would be your /sdcard folder. It shows up as a root folder because that folder is mounted as a virtual partition.
