Android 2.3.2 update for the Nexus S rolling out

The Nexus One isn't the only phone getting an OTA today, the Android 2.3.2 update has started rolling out to the Nexus S as well.  It's small ( only about 600 kb or so) and while we're not 100 percent sure, it looks like these updates are to address the SMS bug.

We haven't been blessed by Google with the update on our Nexi just yet, so we're on the lookout for the download link.  If you feel like helping in the search, grab Alogcat from the market (link after the break), install it and run the app after you get the update message, but before you run the update.  Save the output, and contact us. [Android Central forums] Thanks Droid800!

Update:  Here's that link we were looking for.  You know the drill, rename it to, drop it in your internal storage, and apply from recovery.  If you hit any snags, holler out in the Nexus S forums. Thanks for the link Anon!

  • Ugh
  • *jealous* Here I am, just happy about finally getting Froyo on my Vibrant... Yet, the Nexus S, which is basically the same god damn phone (hardware-wise) gets an update to 2.3.2. I hope you burn Samsung!
  • Just installed it, killed Swype. Kinda sad now.
  • Uninstall/Reinstall Swype. they verify the phone you're using, and many times updating the OS causes it to need re-verified.
  • Thank you.
  • How can I install that I don't know how to reboot the phone in recovery mode
  • Yesssssssss finally! First nesus s 2.3 the the rest of android 2.2 are getting their updates exept the samsung galaxy line up.... sorry... maybe in september when we get honeycomb....
  • September? You're being overly optimistic. After they release the Vibrant 4G, they'll come out with a Vibrant 4GS which is basically all the same hardware on the Galaxy S except with Honeycomb. Just keep buying new phones every 6 months says Samsung! Hurray for corporate greed!
  • everytime i see the nexus S it still bugs me they did not make it 4g,sd card, and no hdmi/tv out on it...y google? with all that said still an awesome phone. nexus one user
  • i want the SMS bug fix on HTC EVO!!!!!!!!!! it gets me ALL the time. atleast 4 times today. any idea on that?
  • I wish this was available on Sprint, instead of the Samsung'd up Epic. Apparently when Samsung made this, Google didn't let them foul it up like the other Galaxy devices, so it actually upgrades without a UN Resolution first... Oh well.
  • Yep - killed my Swype as well.. just reinstalled it seems ok now.
