[Q] What is d6096cac5e9f.signed-hboot-0.35.0017.zip ?
I'm on MoDaCo r21 (FRF91). Every few days, I get alerts that there's an update. There seem to be some problems that haven't quite been worked out with MoDaCo r22 (FRG83), so I'm holding off on upgrading. So every few days, I get an alert that there's an OTA update available. I go into /cache and delete the .zip file that was downloaded, then "accept" the update, which of course fails because the file isn't there, and then I proceed on my way until it happens again.
Up until recently, it always said the update was "Android 2.2 Update" or something and the filename was
This was, as far as I know, a few minor fixes and was just an update to the /system partition.
Now, I've just noticed that the file I was pushed is
and this appears to have an hboot.img embedded in it. I don't know how to crack open an .img file, so my question is, what the heck is this update? The update screen says "Update 1 of 2: This is the first part of an update and it must be installed before the second part is installed" or something like that.
I'm getting paranoid here. Is this some trick from HTC to get me to update my bootloader with a locked-down one like the G2?
The thing I love about the Nexus One is that the whole thing can be legitimately unlocked -- so I hope there's not an update that will change that.
I actually rooted my phone without doing the "fastboot oem unlock" as I didn't want to void my warranty (despite the many claims that HTC still honors claims for things that are clearly hardware-related), but I've always felt safe that I have that option in my back pocket in case I ever screw up so bad that I can only recover via fastboot.
Or maybe this is just a new radio and I'm over-reacting
Can anyone confirm? Or point me to some info on how to examine an .img file?
