Well I made the hop almost immediately and haven't had any negative impacts.

I recently swapped to the following Froyo ROM:
[ROM] RoDrIgUeZsTyLe @ FroYo MCR R16 MOD 1.113Ghz OC/UV/XTRA/BTN/AUDIO/RAM/NEO KERNEL

Works great, even a slightly beneficial speed bump to 1.113ghz.

Still waiting patiently unlike most it seems

Well I'm looking in my drawer of old phones (6 of them) and smart phones (4 of them) so since on average I'm buying a phone every year I doubt I'll feel bad. But since Google is very vague on a release info then why did they release Froyo "accidentally" to the public? No offense to your idea but not really sure it was 2 weeks early. Seems every site from Gizmodo to Engadget and Blogger on Youtube has a Froyo on their N1, with no issues being cited. So again I'm annoyed on the delay with no information. So sorry but Apple never did that.

anyway i rooted over the weekend finally and tried cyanogen, then tried froyo. then back to cyanogen, pimped it out and it rocks. but now i loaded back up to froyo and finally enjoying it and testing it.

So your calling me out for being patient yet you already rooted and updated your device. Glad it's working so again my point is why the delay on the release if issues aren't there. If its a whole "let's see what Apple does" thing then it's lame. Folks buy Nexus phones cause we are techy, so a business power play thing is lame. Other android stuff is covered by the ads from Verizon and Sprint. They will more than make up the Ad fights with Apple going forward. So unless they are releasing Froyo on all devices and not the N1 then stop the delay. Sorry but wikipedia is already posting all the Gingerbread stuff so I would like my frozen treat by now.

i used my phone stock for 3 months before i finally decided to root about 5 days ago. so yeah, i was pretty patient. i didnt root to get froyo, i rooted to get cyanogen 5.0.7, which was totally worth it.

Since the OTA is being pushed to nexus one... I have a question:

Did anyone using AT&T nexus got the OTA?

thanks!

There has not been an EPE54B update issued yet that anyone knows about.

Judging from the way we were excluded from the initial release in May, I have a feeling we will be the last group (AT&T build EPE54B) to see the OTA.

Whatever happened to that Booker-T hack where you can root without unlocking the bootloader. If that surfaces, we can spring forward to rooting and getting Froyo'd!

I find it strange that Google is outright ignoring us, EPE54B folks. There must be some reason - poor sales numbers or something but for the same hardware, they have no reason to boot us out of the press releases or other builds from Google.

is there any confirmed HARDWARE difference between T-M and AT&T build?


I'm from Poland and it really makes no difference for me which build I would use (Polish 3g freq is supported by both). When buying N1 I've just made a random choice.. if there is no HW differences it would be possible to change software built?

can someone please clarify this for me? thanks!

guys! why don't you try to root your EPE54B without unlocking the bootloader
i have been trying on mine but adb won't see my devices in recovery so i am pretty much stuck on step 4 or so...

can you guys give it a try if you want froyo so badly...

in that way, you keep your warranty while you gain root access to flash to any ROM of your choice.

hope we EPE54B user can achieve root without unlocking the bootloader as well!

I had a stock ATT EPE54B waiting for the Froyo OTA but finally gave up.
Checkin rumors on Froyo for us was making me sick.

so mine is rooted.

no more warranty i know.. but to come and think of it, N1 I believe was made to be rooted and a total geek phone. All the best custom roms, themes and updates are available at lightning speed for the N1 with great mods and extra features that the devs create.

Just wanted to give out a word those who are contemplating whether or not they should wait for the OTA.

Definitely backup first. everything will be wiped in the rooting process. flashed Paul's latest r19 rom from modaco straight from EPE54B and I had no problems of brick etc. Please just dont forget to update the radio, or else you wouldnt have wi-fi working.

Once uve got that done, you pretty much can flash any custom rom out there with wonderful themes/skins, tweak options you def cant do on official. and its so easy switching roms after doing the ONLY hard part.. rooting.

hope u guys do it.
