Gingerbread hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Nexus One users. First, they were made to wait forever for the promised Android 2.3 update and now we hear Android Guys reporting of Gingerbread bringing voice call headaches for the N1 users.
Nexus One users were over the moon when the Gingerbread update finally landed on their handsets, but who knew that the Gingerbread misery will make itself prominent once again. A growing number of Nexus One users are complaining of Android 2.3.3 draining their precious battery life a bit too quickly for their liking.
Don’t you just hate it when you have to wait for the OTA Android update to hit your handset? Well if you are a Nexus One user and are waiting for the Gingerbread update, which recently went live, to land on your handset, then the waiting days are over as the manual and speedy method of getting Android 2.3 on your Google Phone is listed after the jump.
The title of the post doesn’t say what you want to hear, right? But read the post through and we promise you will leave with a happy mood and even a smile on your face. We are hearing reports that Android 2.3 is a Nexus S only firmware and won’t be making its way onto other Android handsets. Does this mean no Gingerbread for the likes of Nexus One, HTC Desire and other handsets? Get the answer after the jump and here’s a hint – it’s what you want to hear.
When it rains Honeycomb ports, it pours. That’s the perfect way to describe the last few days in which we have seen Honeycomb land on HTC Desire HD, HTC Evo 4G and Motorola’s Droid Incredible. And now we have Nexus One joining the growing club.
The rumor which we are going to share with you folks, particularly Nexus One users should be taken with a largest grain of salt because we have been let down many times by these Gingerbread for Nexus One speculations in the past. Reports have surfaced which hint at Gingerbread update hitting Nexus One in the later part of this week or in the early part of next week.
When Google announced Gingerbread in early December, Nexus One users were expecting to get the official Android 2.3 update as early as new year which didn’t happen. The only thing Google said on this matter was that it will go live in the coming weeks back in December. Yes I know that’s too many weeks for your liking. But we have some good news. According to ComputerWorld, Android 2.3 update will be rolled out for the first Android developer phone very soon.
Guess who else made it to CNN’s top ten tech fail of the year 2010? Nexus One. But the question which arises is this, does the first Google branded handset deserve to be in top tech failures list. Before we answer this question, I think it makes sense to determine why CNN chose to include Nexus One in the not so proud list of failures, in which iPhone 4 antennagate leads the sinking ship.
Ever since Nexus S went live, Nexus One users had only one thing in one mind – when will we get the Gingerbread OTA update we were promised? We now have the official answer to this very important question. According to a tweet posted by GoogleNexus, Nexus One will be getting the Android 2.3 OTA in the coming weeks.
Yesterday, we shared with you the news of Nexus One getting a Gingerbread port. If you recall that post completely, the AOSP based Gingerbread port was in its early or should I say basic stage, as it didn’t have functional apps and required you to have hboot verison 35.0017. Well, thinks have just gotten better thanks to XDA Developer MicroMod777, who has posted a Gingerbread AOSP build that is rooted, has the Google Apps and doesn’t have any hboot version requirement.
