Hi guys

Im on a rooted, unlocked N1 running radio 5.08 and on stock rom.

Earlier today, I was asked to update OTA to android 2.2.1. The installation is about 3.9mb. Upon restarting, my N1 stayed at the android-with-triangle-exclaimation_mark screen ..... and I had to remove my battery to reboot it.

Upon going back to the updates screen, it says installation failed.

Am I missing anything here?

TIA.

I got this notice too, but I'm not installing until I know what it does. I'm guessing you lost root in the process of updating.

Also, this needs to be in the Q&A section, not Dev.

I pulled the .zip file from the /cache directory, attached on post #11.

Just type this commande line in adb

adb shell ls /cache
and/or
adb logcat > log.txt then post the file


then download the update and go check your log.txt file and send it to pastebon.com for us ;)

Looks like FRG83 update. File exceeds size limit, so using .zip.

I couldn't find any URL for the update in this log.
You can also just look at your sdcard and look for the update.zip

Just had the exact same thing.

Rooted, locked, running 4.06, T-Mobile.

Took out the battery after the exclamation, rebooted, went and checked the about phone section, and everything is still the same.

Click the system updates button, but it says everything is up to date.

I'm going to assume this update won't work for those of us who rooted, judging from all the battery pulls.

Well, this is how it is always. But if you find where the update.zip is. Either from the url in the logcat or on your sdcard. Then the good guys can play with it and make it available as a update for all, including root, etc.

I pulled it from the /cache directory. It isn't in my sdcard.

no battery pull needed, you just have to wait a long time.

Android version: 2.2.1
Baseband version: 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.12_7
Kernel version: 2.6.32.9-27240-gbca5320

Are you running custom ROM and recovery? How were they affected, and root?

Normal everything
only thing i am is unlocked
running stock =)

instructions are

1. Download the Android 2.2.1 firmware for the Nexus One >HERE<
2. Rename the file update.zip and copy it to your microSD card via USB. [Note: make sure the file is named update.zip and not update.zip.zip.]
3. Power down your Nexus One
4. Hold down the “Volume Down” button as you power the phone back on.
5. A screen should appear showing your phone’s system searching for various files. Scroll down to “recovery” and press the “Power” button.
6. When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the “Power” and “Volume Up” buttons at the same time.
7. From the menu that appears, select “Apply sdcard:update.zip.”
8. When the screen displays “Install from sdcard complete” select “reboot system now” and wait for the phone to power back up. (this will take a long time)
