    I've always wondered how do they decide who gets the update first?

    I just manually updated to 2.3.5 on my rooted nexus s 4g, had to reroot the phone after the update, it did not wipe any data or apps. wireless hotspot tethering works much better after the update. Noticed 3g and 4g improvements, at times I get an extra bar for 3g and wifi. No 4g widget found.

    This post was made after tethering to my updated phone. The tether did not work well before the update, I think the update has made signficant signal improvements for my phone. I have not tested the speaker phone or any other claimed fixes or improvements.

    Just to prove wireless tethering still works after the update, here is an IP/ISP lookup I did:


    Location not accurate? Try: Update IP Location IP Information: 66.87.xx.xxx
    ISP: Sprint PCS
    Organization: Sprint PCS
    Connection: Dial-up
    Services: None Detected
    City: Brooklyn
    Region: New York
    Country: United States
    Wireless tethering only works if you are rooted on 2.3.5. It will no longer work unrooted.

    Like already said, it's a rollout over the course of three weeks so you never know when you're going to get it.

    It is the very same update you'd get OTA. Someone was able to pull the update off their phone that downloaded it OTA before it was applied and that is how it could be verified.

    yeah but why did they get it before me? there must be a reason only 5% get the update first right?

    It is the way Google has always done updates for the Nexus phones. This isn't something specific to the NS4G. My guess is so they can roll it out initially to a smaller set of phones, make sure the update process goes well before sending it out to all.

    Rumour has it that the update was initially delayed to go back and break the free tether. Also the update did not successfully address the wifi issues and it will most likely not be able to be fixed through software. There are some who want to continue working these fixes but will have to on their own time. Sorry to those that hoped for more.

    I don't think I'm happy with the update.

    I'm in Washington, DC in NE area very close to Capitol Hill. I have 4G on and I'm using 3G right now.

    I'm starting to wish I stayed with Evo. Or should I try to exchange my phone??? Because I'm definitely getting no improvements on 4G. On Evo, I was able to get at least several bars while on 4G on Evo.

    the only thing I wanted was a louder speaker and they didn't even fix that......

    the only thing they did for this update is kill free tethering (although I never used it), although, my wi-fi connection is better here at work.

    Starting to really eye windows phone 7 because I'm loosing faith in Google. If Ice Cream Sandwich doesn't bring some decent changes (hardware acceleration and better UI changes for example) then I'm done with Android. If I can't get what I want from a PURE GOOGLE PHONE then maybe Android isn't for me (which sucks because I love Android). My guess is that they have kind of already started to forget about the Nexus S (despite the fact it's a Nexus Phone) and focused all development towards the new Nexus. That's not to say we won't get updates first, but they probably won't be worth anything (other than full version updates like Ice Cream Sandwich)

    I'm still getting the same spotty 4G coverage, don't really notice any increase in speed on wifi either.

    I'm not impressed with the update at all. In my house right near my femtocell I am still dropping calls, the speeds are still mediocre, and the wi fi is not any better for me. I love this phone, but I'm sick of it dropping my business calls. Hopefully, the new phone I ordered will be better. I'm hoping the new phone will hold me over to ICS. Hope some of you are getting better results than I am.

    the update seem to have improved my phone's cell strength (more bars), stronger wifi strength and stronger 4G connection. It's better, but not fantastic.
