    update fails repeatedly

    i'v received the 2.2.2 update system message 3x now. each time i say "yes, reboot and install", the phone "reboots", and i'm still on 2.2.1.

    i say "reboots" in quotes as it seems to be doing a soft reset. i see the nexus one logo for a few seconds and then i'm back. much faster then when i manually reboot the device.

    this happend for the last (2.2.1) upgrade as well. i believe it worked on the second attempt there, but now this is getting frustrating. every time it fails, i'm waiting for days until i see the update message pop up again.

    any ideas?
    thanks.

    no, i should have mentioned that. this is 100% stock nexus one, nothing custom, not rooted. t-mo version.

    ....scratch his head.....

    Check the charge of the phone, OTA cannot be installed when reaching a certain % charge left (i think its 50% but not sure, it may be 25%) So lets say your at 50% and launching the OTA, the reboot and preparation will take a small amount of the charge so you wont have 50% left, the OTA then closes.

    If not, I would try downloading the signed update, put it on sd and reboot into recovery to install.

    If still fails (i guess it won't though) i would revert to factory settings and try again.

    it's not the charge level. the last 2x the phone was fully charged on power and on wifi.

    yes i guess i'll manually install it. i wanted to avoid that so i could make sure i was always getting the official build from google.

    can you recommend the site i should look at where i can download the google-blessed nexus one updates?

    thanks.

    download here : Nexus One/Roms - XDA-Developers

    that will do the trick for sure, passimg method never fails lol

    then do the passimg (starting at no.3 assuming you have downloaded your rom) :
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...ore_your_Nexus


    write down your apn (access point name) settings in network--mobile settings before you proceed, so you dont need to call costumer service to set it up again to be able to connect to 3g
