    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.

    LOL... yeah, I just updated my N1 and it's now got a lovely OLED screen! Amazing update.

    ...but seriously, update completed without a hitch, thank you to the poster!

    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 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

    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! :confused:

    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 :)

    I shat a brick when it froze on an android, arrow and a box.

    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.

    I still haven't updated yet, damn meetings. However, there was said to b some night view in Google maps. Anyone know what it was and can anyone explain the other mods to that apparently?

    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.

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

    Guys i followed the steps perfectly i got to the screen of the triangle with a ! in the middle and the android robot underneath but power + volume up wont do anything... Now my screen is stuck on this. Can i try anything else from here ?

    Figured it out... for those having the same issue. First press down power then follow with the volume up.

    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?
