has anyone else tried this to see if it is BS or true link. sorry if i sound skeptical but i'm a real noob with anything other than blackberries. i switched to nexus s and love it so far. but i also don't want a brick. any replies would be great.
the link is real, I updated my phone a couple of weeks ago via this method and it was fast simple and easy. this is what I did:
click the link and download the file
move the file from your pc (eithr mac or windows) to your phone via usb connection
turn off your phone
now, hold the power button and volume up at the same time to open fastboot mode, you will get a menu with the adroid logo.
move with the volume rocker and select with the power button, select recovery
you will get a android and a warning sign
now press the volume up and power ntil you get a menu
apply recovery or update from sd card
choose the file you moved from your pc
check that your battery has enough charge (75 percent at the least)
move the file to a locatio thats easy to access and remember
I did this without any knowledge on android, its very easy.
Yeah, see, I hate being the negative guy. I like my Nexus S a lot to be sure. But, this is like the holy trinity of crap that annoys me. Seriously we are absolutely without any viable means of customer support. I pay hundreds of dollars a month for a carrier plan, and no one can help with my device.
and rooting is lame. Should I have to root my car to get all of the horsepower, or my hotwater heater to get a good shower. No, a thing should do what it can do.
