    We are basically the first phone to be upgraded to Gingerbread aside from the Nexus brands and that should tell you something regarding our phones status.
    Did you not like the Liberty? Im staying where I am cuz todays leak really wont be much different than the deodexed GB leak a couple weeks ago.
    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

    Copy it from the download location on your PC and paste it into your SD card and rename it "update".

    settings > about phone > system updates: "your device is up to date! no update is necessary at this time."

    i don't mess with roots and such. i'll just wait till my phone gets the update.

    just to confirm, you took the update file, renamed it so the filename is "update.zip", and placed it on the root (main) area of your sd card? and you are on the official froyo release and not rooted or rom'med?

    Remember, PCs always add the .zip so don't ever add that, ever. People name something update.zip, then it reads update.zip.zip as terpitude says allready, make sure file is update.zip.

    that might be the issue. wiping wont get rid of root privileges. anywhere i have seen the update posted has said that root users need to sbf before applying this update. obviously, though, sbf'ing will erase everything on your phone and return it to the out of the box state

    EDIT: did some more reading. apparently if you are ONLY rooted, it should install fine, but if you are rom'med, themed, deodexed, bootstrapped, or have frozen/removed bloatware (basically if youve made any framework changes), it wont work without sbf'ing first. you will, of course, lose root access with the update though

    thank for all you help. i found a post on how to remove zroot. i removed it & placed the update on my phone again. i stiil get the error that the file can't be found. i didnt do noe of that other stuff cause i dont know how to. guess i'll have to wait until the updat is pushed out. also not sure what sfb is.

    I agree, I didn't think I would have issue with going back stock but Im shaking to flash this build instead of holding out for possible OTA.

    Also has anyone heard update on root for new build..

    there seem to be a few isolated glitches with the build and i'm starting to think it's not real only because the keyboard is not the same gingerbread keyboard as shown in previous build images. it appears google will not sync contacts (without wiping first) so the sync symbol will constantly show in the notification bar.

    i do recommend wiping your phone prior to installing, seeing as several programs did not work after updating and i had to remove and reinstall them anyway.

    this build is MUCH better at managing memory, i'll say that much.
