Gingerbread 2.3.3 is ready to download! Today, I have been search for a lot of tutorial on how to manually Nexus One update to Gingerbread 2.3 from android central. And you can follow steps below to update it :
- First you have to download the update from XDA here.
- Rename the file to update.zip. Note that if you’re using Windows, just rename it to “update” (no quotes, of course) because it’s already a zipped file.
- Copy the update.zip file onto your microSD card.
- With your Nexus One off, hold down the trackball and press the power button.
- You’ll be booted into a white screen with three Android robots on skateboards. Select “Bootloader.”
- On the next screen, select “Recovery.”
- Your phone will reboot, giving you a picture of the Android robot and an exclamation point inside a triangle.
- Now press the power button and volume up button at the same time. It could take a couple of tries.
- Now (using the trackball this time) choose “Apply sdcard:update.zip” and let things run their course.
You should now can us the new Gingerbread 2.3.3. But, maybe you wanna know what is the features that built in the new Gingerbread, read breakdown of the three major features in the release below that I got from businessinsider.com:
- No more Facebook integration. Before now, you could use the Facebook App to pull your friends’ info directly to into your address book, just like you can on iPhone.
- WebM support. This is an open video format that loads easily on mobile devices.
- NFC updates. For the Nexus S there are some new NFC options for developers, including an API that will let apps write to NFC tags. This is useful for sharing information between two devices.
