If this is the official update file, may I point out most of the files contained in the zip are dated 11/25/2009 which is before the release of the handset and before most of these problems surfaced. Something doesn't seem right.

Many thanks for this, took me 5 mins this morning and now I've got lots of lovely multi-touch goodness on my N1 and it's super smoother!

I will read up on the other minor updates tonight.

I am hoping the 3G tweaks will much improve my battery as my house is right on the tipping balance between a 2G and 3G towers and it's forever switching.

-Will this method work if I have a rooted N1 with unlocked bootloader? No, you'll have to download a modified version of the update file that will not break your root access.
Where can i get the modified version for rooted devices?

Will the OTA update appear on phones outside of the official countries? Also, where is the FAQ?

thanks :-)

All Nexus come with a locked bootloader and if you wish to unlock it can be done very easily. This will void your warranty and not all people want to play with custom ROMs or lose their waranty

Exclamation error message

I have a rooted Nexus One that I had applied the pinch to zoom hack when it became available a few weeks back.

I keep getting this error when attempting to force apply yesterdays update.

Can anyone help please!

It's got something to do with the keys, Amon_RA's recovery doesn't use the "release" key the update does.

Go over here and get the one you want (root/ non root/ highmem or not)
02/Feb ERE27 - Full new update in main update zip, radio update zip, insecure boot image and superboot image - Android @ MoDaCo

=> only if you have a modified recovery!
don't forget to flash the radio

Did the manual update this morning with the instructions provided. 5 minutes job. Battery life seems to be better. Browser multi-touch not so good as it doesn't automatically fit to the screen. Will stick to Dolphin for browsing. Pictures take longer to load. Not much of a difference for 3G connectivity.

Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure but I think you will since the keys are different it won't accept the update. All has to do with this 'signing' stuff

You can restore your original boot image or just wait till Cyanogen releases it's new ROM.
But if I was you I would just pick one from modaco. It's the same as the original update but he changed the 'keys'.

I gave up waiting and followed the procedure. The only difficulty I had was in selecting "Recovery" -- I kept thinking I could navigate to it with the track ball, but instead it was the volume key I should have been pressing.

If this isn't already in the instructions -- i.e. if I was too sleepy to notice it -- would you consider adding it in?

Hell yeah! What a painless install. The pinch to zoom is ridiculously smooth on the N1. It is a good sign that Google has put out such a meaty upgrade so quickly after release.

Default Any definitive info on whether this works on Droid, Hero, etc?

Someone asked the question about the Droid, I'm asking about the Hero (Mytouch 3g). Anybody know? Should I look at another forum?

When I get the droid and caution screen, I press power and volume up and nothing happens. It appears stuck. To get out of this I remove the battery and it boots normally. Help?

Thanks,

Hi all,

Looks like the update also fixes the Polar Clock Wallpaper force close issue. Not that it's a great wallpaper... ;-)

Hey guys, thanks for all the feedback. I was going to come back and update this last night, but the whole forum was down with a database error!

Anyways, I made the instructions a little bit more clearer (regarding navigating with the volume keys and the key sequence at the android warning page), as well as added the link for rooted/unlocked bootloaders.

Also, a little update to the FAQ, which is at the bottom of the instructions post.

Special thanks to FLT for holding down the fort while I slept

So I have successfully forced updated my Nexus One, and its working fine without any noticeable problems. But one thing I have noticed is that there is a | like sign after my carrier logo. I don't *think* it was there before the update, i could be wrong but i am sure my carrier name does't have | after it. It's not affecting any functionality or any thing.. I am just curious if any one else has noticed any thing like this... and if so what does this indicate....
thanks

Just wanted to ask once more and hopefully get a reply.
Does anyone know if doing this update is completely legit or will it void the warranty/TOS?

Thanks

The link provided is Google's official server. It is where people who legitimately got their OTA updates from downloaded their files.

It will not void your warranty. It is indistinguishable for anyone to tell if you got an OTA update or forced it after the fact.

I will add this to the FAQ.

Thanks for the reply. Just wondering if anyone ends up with a bricked phone from this method if it'd be covered. Maybe I'll wait another day before applying.

Has anyone tried to see if bluetooth dialing works? I assume not, since it is the NUMBER ONE REAL BUG with Android, and no one has mentioned it.

Strangely, I've had the same Firmware version, Baseband version, Build Number as the update purportedly has, since I got my replacement N1 over a week ago.

No one got any thoughts on this? I don't actually doubt that the file is the correct one, but the dates are a bit curious

I'll try on my droid to see if it works, the OS is the same build and Ill take the risk since this update clearly shows that every phone behind the nexus one doesn't receive priority anymore.

Man, did you read the first post.

Do NOT do this to your Droid. It will not work at all.

Anyways, all the features of this update have already been ported to Droid. Check the Droid section for more info.

has anyone actually tried it yet, how can you say it doesn't work if no one has direct proof of a failed attempt?

You want to be the guinea pig?

Anyways, it took an entire night of work from several devs to modify the contents of the update enough to make it work on the Droid. You think you can flash it and get it working in 5 minutes?

Consider yourself warned.

I asked about this earlier in the thread as well. But I am going to take a pretty good educated guess and agree that it will NOT work on the DROID.
This file is merely an update for issues that were known on the N1 which already had the 2.1 installed. I haven't seen anyone post any info. about whether this update changed 2.1 to 2.1.1 or if the buiild number changed or anything like that. Additionally, I see that the file size is only ~15mb.
I am no expert, but I highly doubt the jump from 2.0.1 to 2.1 would only be that small of a file. Probably more along the lines of the first DROID update..~50-70mb.
I was curious and hoping it would work for us DROID owners, but looking at it more now, I won't be willing to be a guinea pig. I'll just wait until Motorola/Verizon are good and ready to release 2.1 (with any included updates). I'm just as eager as the next guy to get 2.1 and I know rooting could basically give me all of that, but I'd rather wait and hold Motorola/Verizon responsible for any issues that may/could arise from the update.
Fingers crossed for 2.1 soon though!!!

Default different .zip file sizes

hi,

i just downloaded both .zip files to my pc and they're different sizes in winrar. the one for the first link is coming up as around 15 mb and the one form the 2nd link is just over 3 mb. i'm not doubting the integrity of these update files but can anyone explain why that might be?

They're both ~15.3 MB. Your 2nd file probably got corrupted. But then again, why are you downloading the 2nd file anyways? You only need one copy of the update.zip.

My guess would be that the code was already written for release but not implemented for whatever reason.

All Google have had to do now is send us the files that were taken out of the OS.

Downloaded and applied. Was a breeze.
Just got my N1 2 days back.

Wasn't sure if Google was going to be sending OTA to India.

Default it worked

Thanks for this, I followed the instructions and it worked for me. It also seems to have solved the 3G problem with Vodafone Romania ;-)

Make sure you have put the update.zip in the root of your SD card. Don't put it in any folder and also make sure the actual name is update.zip.

Also make sure you didn't name it 'update.zip.zip'. Compare it with an MP3 file, if your mp3 file doesn't end in .mp3 then remove the .zip from the update.zip.
