    I wanted to wait for the actual OTA notification from Google. I have (okay, 'had') a completely stock unrooted N1 running 2.1 update 1 and was determined to do things 'by the book'. I feel like the damned owl in the Tootsie Roll commercial ... I couldn't wait and had to manually update to FroYo.

    Just curious, is anyone going to wait?

    yes i'm waiting. i modded all my previous windows mobile phones, but this one I paid 400 dollars for and there's no warranty or anything so i don't want to screw it up. i'm hoping the radio improves. I'm having iphone4 ish antenna issues. (bars drop when I hold it)

    Hey I'm like you, I really wanted to get the OTA and never manually updated a thing untill I had to go one day knowing the OTA was out and not getting it. I just couldn't resist anymore.

    No regrets tho!!

    Ha Ha! That comment about the owl in the Tootsie Roll commercial cracks me up.

    Yup, here I am...waiting...still waiting...

    It's so frustrating but I'm hesitant to update on my own. I know that people say it's easy to do but I figure if I've waited this long, what's a few more days? Right? Ugh!! Who am I kidding? If I don't get the OTA by Sunday, I'm manually installing it. :p

    I too am waiting for the OTA update. I just received my N1 two days ago, so I figure I can wait a few more days (hopefully just days) while I explore what 2.1 has to offer. But I have to say I am getting impatient, reading so many forum posts and engadget comments from people who have received their OTA updates. I don't know how much longer I can hold out; I may head down to Ampitheatre Way and start knocking on doors soon.
     
  8. Manually upgrading does not void your warranty. Your not rooting the phone

    +1, I don't know what you guys are waiting for, grab the update and manually install! It will not affect your warranty.

    I'm also waiting. As an Android virgin, I am used to flashing cooked ROMs on my WinMo devices. However I am less at ease with the *nix environment and have decided that I will stay stock. Besides, there is little need for me to want for anything that root could provide.

    I'm waiting for OTA and judging by the Vodafone UK statement referred to elsewhere on the forum (relating to changes they are making to Froyo) I could be waiting for a few more weeks.

    And now we know how old you are ;)

    When you update (yes, you will) there were a few things in the instructions I found unclear or incomplete. For example:

    But how? Had to figure this one out ... If "Bootloader" isn't already selected (it was for me) you navigate the list with the up volume and down volume buttons and you select by pressing the power button.


    It works better if you press and hold the power button and then press volume up. Took only one try for me.

    Once I got through all the steps it just did its thing. It did restart a few times, but I didn't have to do anything. It might appear to hang on a couple of screens, but give it a few minutes and it will move on.

    Then get your spoon because you'll be enjoying a big bowl of FroYo. Yummy.

    You don't have to root your device you are just performing a recovery and applying a update.zip file that was signed by Google. I can understand being a little nervous and it is your phone not mine. 2.2 is a very nice upgrade worth doing a little research for to install imo.

    I was hesitant at first but after waiting for a month since Google I/O announcement and the AT&T version was out, I jumped on it.

    Installing the manual update was easier than I thought. I'm one of those chicks that can't read tech instructions. If I can do it.. so can you :)

    I manually updated all the way to FRF83. Then I got the OTA's for FRF85B and now for FRF91.

    As far as I can tell there is no difference as to "how" you update, but I personally like that the final build was an OTA. Makes it feel more "official".

    Lol.. yeah.. apparently there was a security bug or something with FRF85B so now FRF91 is being rolled out. :D

    Yeah apparently.. that was unexpected.
    Just flashed it but I don't see any immediate differences. I just hope it makes Froyo a bit more stable on my n1.

    Yes, and it appears I'm about as old as you are. ;)

    Lunatic, thanks for sharing your experience on updating the N1. It's helpful to know which procedure works best when updating.

    So I hear there's yet another update out there?? I haven't received any. I hope I get the OTA soon. I do realize that manually updating will not void the warranty but I tend to agree with AnotherFatalEpic, in that receiving an OTA update "makes it feel more official".

    Besides, I kinda feel like Roze did before she decided to update...

    ...like "one of those chicks that can't read tech instructions" :eek:
