    Do you have to be rooted to manually apply the update?

    I'm getting the triangle exclamation point too.

    Again.....we shouldn't flash any rom's or kernels since their build is 2.3.4?

    is your signature accurate?
    How do I make it accurate if it isn't (or check lol).

    EDIT: Ok I figured that out. Yet when I apply the update it says File verification failed. I am running the stock rom rooted. I will try to copy over the file again first I guess.

    No. In fact, again, you should NOT apply this if you're rooted.

    Correct.

    If you're rooted you shouldn't be applying this update.

    You can either unroot and apply or wait for the devs to make a root friendly version. They're working on it as we speak.

    Any ideas on why I can't apply the update. I'm rebooting (pwr + vol up) then selecting "Recovery" then it just hangs on the triangle.

    To anyone that helps, thank you in advance.

    Not really. You can install this if you're rooted (I did). You'll just have to re-run the root process after installing it (not a big deal). Under 10 minutes, and I'm happily rooted on 2.3.5 now. You'll also lose your recovery partition, so you have to reinstall that (and rename /system/etc/install-recovery.sh again). If you un-root and install, your phone will be wiped and you'll start with a clean slate. If you install the update on a rooted phone and then re-root, all your data and settings will remain intact with no loss. If you don't want to lose data, don't touch any "fastboot oem lock/unlock" commands.

    That happens if you don't have a valid recovery partition. If you're rooted, you just need to reinstall ClockWorkMod Recovery (quick via ROM Manager). I have no idea how the recovery partition goes wonky if you're not rooted (or how to repair it).

    I literally just picked up a replacement NS4G about an hour ago for my signal issues. I really hope this one isn't screwed up too.

    When you get to the triangle screen, hold down the power button and press volume up. Then select update and point it to update.zip.

    Well if its a fresh phone that you don't have a ton of time invested in setting up, I say ROOT IT!

    Nope, no 3G or 4G tethering or hotspot for me. It connects, but no Internet connection. Haven't heard otherwise yet, this might be the one that kills it off.

    My DL/UL speeds increased greatly. Went from average 92/53kbps (DL/UL) to 415/83kbps. I posted some extra numbers a few pages back.

    Damn it, I kept hitting the buttons at the same time, instead of power then vol up. Worked like a charm this time. Thank you Superblast.

    Well boys, I'm cracking a beer. Here's too hoping the signal issues are gone.

    Look at that wall of text. You're absolutely correct, but people are in frenzy mode and already aren't reading instructions and warnings.

    I'm seeing a definite improvement. I couldn't even pick up 4G at my office but I get one bar now. ~3000kbps down/200kbps up speeds on speedtest (not very accurate but gives me an idea).

    can someone please confirm whether to rename the file "update" or "update.zip" Someone on here is saying something different than all of the directions I read.
