    simple question :

    i'm rooted on stock 2.2. If I install the updates in order to get 2.3.3, I know that I will loose root but how loosing root will affect my phone ? Only lost of superuser access ? Will all my sd installed apps stays on sd ? Do I run titanium before installing updates ?

    (I only have CacheMate, Move2sd Enabler, ShootMe and Titanium Backup as for rooted phone only apps)

    The MIUI mod I tried last week is terrible. Real buggy. Slow as molasses. Many apps would not work. I've tried many different ROMs since I rooted, and MIUI was one of the worst. Looked pretty - when it wasn't completely frozen up. Definitely recommend staying AWAY from MIUI mod.

    I'm sticking with CM 6.1.1 until they get all the kinks worked out of 7.

    Gingerbread for the Nexus One is in the wild

    This just popped up on the xda-developers forum. I can confirm that it will flash a stock T-Mobile style Nexus One to Android 2.3.3 (build GRI40). No idea if it works for AT&T phones. As always, YMMV.

    android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/passion/81304b2de707.signed-passion-GRI40-from-FRG83G.81304b2d.zip

    The standard manual update instructions apply:
    1. 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.]
    2. Power down your Nexus One
    3. Hold down the "Volume Down" button as you power the phone back on.
    4. A screen should appear showing your phone’s system searching for various files. Scroll down to "recovery" and press the "Power" button.
    5. When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the "Power" and "Volume Up" buttons at the same time.
    6. From the menu that appears, select "Apply sdcard:update.zip."
    7. When the screen displays "Install from sdcard complete" select "reboot system now" and wait for the phone to power back up.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the info!

    As for the build, if I remember correctly, they are different for AT&T... So, probably not going to work for me atm...

    Is the file identified as update.zip.zip? Because that may be part of the problem...

    Nope. I always download the zip that has that long ass name and I simply change it to update so it's update.zip.

    I also ALWAYS show file extensions in windows to avoid the .zip.zip.
