Google had tweeted from its official GoogleNexus account that both Nexus S and Nexus One users will receive the Android 2.3.3 OTA update and it will take a few weeks to complete this OTA, but we have a good news for all the Nexus users, Google has released the official Update .Zips and now you will be able to download it directly from Google.
The Android 2.3.3 update has many issues solved like the random rebooting issues and many kernel tweaks, it will also be the first Gingerbread OTA for the Nexus One users who have been kept in the dark despite the release of Android 2.3 Gingerbread in December.
Instructions on how to get Android 2.3.3 on your Nexus:
- Download the update for your respective Devices from above.
- Rename the downloaded file to update.zip, if you are using Windows then just rename it to update as it already comes as a zip file
- Copy the update.zip file onto your microSD Card
- With the Nexus One in off state, hold the trackball and press the power button together till the white screen appears
- Select ‘Bootloader’ from the set of options in the white screen
- In the next screen which appears select ‘Recovery’
- If you are on stock ROM and unrooted then you will be taken to a screen with an Android and an exclamation point inside a triangle
- Now press the volume up button and power button together
- Now the phone will automatically detect the update.Zip and show an option called ‘Apply sdcard:update.zip’
- Select ‘Apply sdcard:update.zip’ with the help of the trackball
- Let the process finish and reboot
That’s it you will be boot into Android 2.3.3! Please note that if you get ‘Signature Verification failed’ then try to download the .zip again and try to flash it again.
