    Question What's the reason for OTA taking a week?

    I was just wondering if anyone knew why the OTA update is done in a rolling fashion. I mean Google probably has more servers than anyone else in the world and it's not like there are millions of N1 users out there either. Just don't understand if there is a technical reason behind it or something

    It's by design, a measured rollout spanning a week has been fairly typical even on my old G1. Google said everyone should have it by weeks end (tomorrow).

    edit: btw. the version number relates to the day of the build in the quarter, so FRF50 was released on the 50th day of the first quarter,etc.

    Probably just to be on the safe side. They don't want to recreate Apple issues, of things blowing up and customers being unhappy.

    I just want to know how they roll it out. How does it decide who gets it when? I got my phone three weeks after it released and I haven't gotten the OTA yet. BLAH!
