Hi there

I'm preparing to use a manual update to FRF91 from ERE27

OTA has failed (maybe because of root)
(my previous post here)

Is applying manual update is risky when your device has been rooted (modaco superboot) ?

Update frustration!

Hopefully someone can help me cause this is getting frustrating! The other day I received the update and it crash my phone. After getting it back online, it said that my system was up to date but was still running FRF50.

I call Google and she said I would have to do a manual update and sent me to a site where I downloaded FRF91 from FRF50.zip.

I found the following instructions and I still can't get it to work!

Instructions:

1. Download the update from one of the links above.
Check
2. Rename the file to update.zip. Note that if you're using Windows, just rename it to "update" (no quotes, of course) because it's already a zipped file.
Check
3. Copy the update.zip file onto your microSD card.
Check
4. With your Nexus One off, hold down the trackball and press the power button.
Check
5. You'll be booted into a white screen with three Android robots on skateboards. Select "Bootloader."
Check
6. On the next screen, select "Recovery."
Check
7. Your phone will reboot, giving you a picture of the Android robot and an exclamation point inside a triangle.
This is where things get messed up. I do not see a Android Robot or a exclamation point inside a triangle. I get the Nexus One "X" and the padlock. It then opens the Android Recovery System and I don't know what to do from there.
8. Now press the power button and volume up button at the same time. It could take a couple of tries.
9. Now (using the trackball this time) choose "Apply sdcard:update.zip" and let things run their course.

Anyone know how I can get through steps 8 and 9 to get this thing finally updated?

Thank you in advance

This is really strange. Does it let you apply or search for update.zip? Explain what you see... or try doing a wipe of your phone and then see if you get ota.

On step 8 press power button first then volume up button.
Hope that helps.

Hello all! I'm new to this Android game and just wanted to see if you guys can provide some insight. I still have to read up on the terminology, acronyms and procedures on updating. I read through this entire post but it doesn't really make much sense to me right now :eek:

I purchased a used rooted N1 that is running the following:

Model number: Nexus One
Android version: 2.2
Baseband version: 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.12_7
Kernel verseion: 2.6.34-cyanogenmod, [email protected] #56
Build number: Kang-o-rama 0.9b2 SP1 (FRF83)

I received an OTA update notification that Android Update 2.2 (917kb) was downloaded. I'm wondering if it is safe to apply this update or if I should follow the manual instructions posted. How do I tell if I am running stock? Is it safe to apply OTA updates after a phone is rooted? Thanks in advance!

I believe doing the update should be ok. You might loose root though.

Hey guys, I'm having kind of a strange problem. I'm trying to get to FRF91 from FRF85B, and I keep getting an error. My phone is COMPLETELY STOCK, never rooted, bootloader still locked, etc. Something horrific to the people here, I'm sure. =P

I have applied all official updates manually as soon as they have been posted here. I had a similar problem getting to FRF85B, but installing the "universal update.zip" worked. I haven't yet tried the "Universal" to FRF91.zip. I'd like to fix the problem, so I don't have to keep waiting for the right package to show up. I'd like to be able to receive OTAs. Is there a way to fix this without going back to 2.1 and re-upgrading? The problem seems to be with GoogleQuickSearchBox.odex.

the error message is as such:
Code:
From the OTA:
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.odex", "046f6c6c11fd5c6869630fbe4a12023ca08feca9", "a49f5e2a41e8bff256b8eb96402247ae80c55458")
E:Error in /cache/signed-passion-FRF91-from-FRF85B.db99fdf1.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

From the update.zip:
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.odex", "046f6c6c11fd5c6869630fbe4a12023ca08feca9", "a49f5e2a41e8bff256b8eb96402247ae80c55458")
E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
(Status 7)

Thanks for any help! You guys are incredibly smart.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're rooted, don't you need a "rooted" update that doesn't check the signature? Once you're rooted, it doesn't let you use the official updates.

I'm sure you'll find it in this forum, if not earlier in this very thread. The update's been out for a while, so it could be a couple pages back. I'm not rooted, otherwise I'd link you myself.

Anyone else have the problem with the messed up GoogleQuickSearchBox.odex? I really don't want to reinstall 2.1 and reupgrade. If I was stock all the way, how could it have messed up? Is there a way to manually update just that component through ADB?

    Post updated with the FRF91 build link (also attached it in case a new build comes out lol). Strange series of updates but I think this one might be a security patch or something.

    I successfully updated my GSM N1 to 91 from 85B.
