It is too boring to have Gingerbread on only on Nexus S and Nexus One. Here come HTC to announce official Gingerbread update on few HTC models, it including HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire Z and HTC Incredible S in coming Q2 2011. This absolutely a good news for all the HTC Desire Family users. What do you think? Any models are missing out from the list?
Personally I think the task switcher is essential to any smartphone, it could let you know what actually are running tasks in background and you could switch it very quickly. The original Recent Apps feature in Gingerbread (press long on home button) doesn’t really meet my requirement to switch the operating task. It is important to user to switch the task quickly in a multitasking smartphone. So far, I found perfect task switcher is the best among all.
Oh God, finally I received OTA notification to update my Nexus S from 2.3.1 to 2.3.2. I had read all the updates around on the gingerbread update on Nexus S but I still haven’t any yet. I did read many of the articles complaining the sms bugs in 2.3.1. So, the minor gingerbread is to fix the sms issue. This is the first time I update my Nexus S, I felt a bit excited =)
There is 2 ways to update the android OS, via OTA (over-the-air) or download and install it manually. I prefer the former because i do not need to do anything but just click install button =) Kind of noob huhh?!
Second way is MORE complicated. Need a manual installation. Actually, it is not that difficulty =)
Step 1: Download the official Android 2.3.2 update for Nexus S from here.
Step 2: Copy this file to the root of your SD card. (Nexus S users no longer need to change the file name to update.zip)
Step 3: Now power off your phone, hold down the “Volume Up” button, followed by the “Power” button to turn it back on.
Step 4: Now use the volume rocker buttons to navigate to “Recovery” option and then select it using “Power” button.
Step 5: Now when you see an exclamation mark –like image on the screen, hold down the “Power” button followed by “Volume Up” button.
Step 6: At this stage you should be presented with Android’s Recovery menu. Now select the option to apply the update from SD card, followed by selecting the actual update “.zip” file using the “Power” button.
Step 7: That’s it. Wait for the phone to complete the update process. Once its done, select “reboot system now” option to reboot your phone into Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread.
I hope I don’t see the sms bug anymore in the latest Gingerbread update. Hurray!! Update is completed!!
