Nexus One 2.3.6

Android 2.3.6 is already available for stock Nexus One, and there are fears that this build may “infect” Nexus One with the blocked tethering issue that plagued the Nexus S.

For me, it seems that the WiFi Hotspot feature still worked, except that the AP Name got reset to AndroidAP.  After reconfiguring the name and password for WPA2, I’m once again able to tether off my N1’s 3G network.


Gingerbread 2.3.4

Gingerbread 2.3.4 should be going OTA soon, but if you are impatient, then go grab the PASSION update file. Installation instructions are largely the same as previous updates, with some additional menu prompts for location for update file (probably came with 2.3.3).

Have Fun!

Unexciting News: Nexus One gets Froyo FRG83G

While we are still twiddling our thumbs waiting for Gingerbread on Nexus One, an update which is supposed to fix the SMS reply bug has been released, and updates the OS version to 2.2.2.

Back to thumb twiddling…

Google Maps for Android updated to



Google Maps has been updated on my Nexus One, and while i can pan and tilt, the vector buildings are not appearing yet, even when viewing areas like San Francisco.

Maybe it requires Gingerbread.  So Google where’s my cookie done?


image[Update] My bad, you needed to zoom to the lowest 3 levels to see the vector buildings. Rotation, as advertised, does not work on Nexus One.

Disappointingly and unsurprisingly, Singapore does not have vector building data.

HTC Legend gets FROYO OTA Update in Singapore!

Froyo has gone OTA for HTC Legend users in Singapore.  Make sure you have a full charge of battery / plugged in for power before you go Menu > Settings > About Phone > Check Update.

Update takes about 20 mins in total, so hang in there~!


   After the patch has been downloaded, the system restarts and begins the installation of the update, takes about 10 mins.


Yay! Installed, but, we’re only halfway there, as HTC still has to update all their Sense UI on the stock Froyo.  Patience!










Updates … then Opps. Something Died.  Force closed without incident and installation continues. Another 5~10 mins of waiting.


Yay, we’re online.  Settings are retained.










A quick check on the settings… yep, Froyo updated successfully on HTC Legend.  Now you guys can become a WIFI hotspot too! (Menu > Wireless Network).

However, a check at the Android Market Place still does not list “Adobe Flash Player 10.1”, so you guys have to wait a bit more for Google / HTC to update some settings.

Have fun and share what you like about Froyo!  I’m twiddling my thumbs for Gingerbread on N1 in the next few days.

Froyo FRG83D update

Attempting to update my Nexus to FRG83D in a moving train. File at http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/passion/ecb21b752065.signed-passion-FRG83D-from-FRG83.ecb21b75.zip. Wish me luck

Update: Success. But the 3min 1st boot had me sweating for a while. FRG83D ok!

Froyo 2.2 FRF 85b and FRF 91 Up and Running

Seems like there’s been a lot of Google love these days for Froyo. The dust had hardly settled for FRF85b (aka official Froyo release) when FRF91 pops up.
