Nexus One Jelly Bean port already available, not officially though

by: Chris SmithJuly 20, 2012

Remember the Google Nexus One? The HTC-made phone they said it wouldn’t be upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich despite being a Nexus-branded device? That also means the device won’t get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from Google, and users that don’t want to tinker with it will have to be content with Gingerbread running under the hood.

For everyone else – not that we’re encouraging you to pursue such do-it-yourself modifications – a Nexus One Jelly Bean port has already been achieved and it’s currently available courtesy of the folks over at xda-developers. We’re not surprised to see developers come up with a Jelly Bean version for the [...]

T-Mobile’s upcoming Huawei myTouch smartphone captured in the wild

by: Mike AndriciMarch 20, 2012

Back at the start of the month, we’ve covered Pockenow’s claim that T-Mobile has decided on Huawei as the manufacturer for the next smartphone in the mid-range T-Mobile myTouch series. Obviously, under these conditions, the leak of a couple of pics of the keyboard-less version (one with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard is also planned) is not exactly the most unexpected news. It is nice to catch a glimpse of the actual device though, as most couldn’t make much of the renders we had last time when we covered the subject. As it turns out, the myTouch Huawei smartphone looks a lot like the HTC Desire-based Google Nexus One. Here are the two, side by side! Notice the [...]

How to Install MIUI Version 4 on Nexus One

by: Ken EastJanuary 24, 2012

The Nexus One is the device that many people had once craved for. But, let’s face it–it is not a hot thing anymore, as better devices are popping out in the market. This is inevitable, though–a time will definitely have to come when a product becomes obsolete.  In this case, obsolete in terms of the “What’s the hot thing?” criterion. But, for those who have kept their Nexus One alive, there is great news for you. The time for your Nexus One to get some slick and classy upgrade has finally come.

For those who still do not know, version 4 of the popular MIUI ROM based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich has arrived for the Nexus One. If you want to load up [...]

The Evolution of the Nexus Phone: Will Google Have Anything More To Offer?

by: Bern OliverOctober 30, 2011
Samsung recently announced the release of the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus. This one's equipped with a fast dual-core processor, and powered by the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. With its 720HD display, we all doubt there is anything a techie lover would ask for more.

According to Google: Nexus One will not get Official ICS update

by: AlexanderOctober 26, 2011

It shouldn’t come as surprise to many of us that the Nexus One won’t be getting an official update to Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich. According to Google’s Hugo Barra, as reported by the Telegraph, the Nexus One is just too old to receive the update. Which is basically what we figured, and why it wasn’t on our prediction list to get the ICS upgrade.

In all reality, the hardware simply isn’t powerful enough to ensure for a good experience. But, as we have all gotten used to over the last couple years, we fully expect someone to put together a ICS ROM for the Nexus One, hopefully someone over at XDA is working on it for us.

Is [...]

Nexus One Running Ice Cream Sandwich & What it Means for You

by: Will G.October 24, 2011

According to PocketNow, the Nexus One seems to be back in business, running Android’s new OS version, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A developer known as dr1337m, had recently taken advantage of the new SDK by porting it to new devices, most notably the Nexus One.

There are, however, still a variety of different issues with the port. Some of these problems include audio instability, small transitional animation glitches, and the broken use of Wi-Fi, for the average mobile speed demon.

Even though that are some pretty major bugs, these could be worked out by developers soon, because in all fairness, the port was released pretty quickly.

And relating to this [...]

Nexus One Gets Gingerbread (Finally!)

by: Darcy LaCouveeFebruary 23, 2011

Congratulations Nexus One owners, the wait for Gingerbread is almost over. Today, Google has finally begun pushing out the latest version of Android, codenamed Gingerbread, to Nexus One devices. While the rollout is likely to take a few days, it’s likely that if you have a Nexus One, that you will receive it very soon.

Nexus S owners can also look forward to an OTA update as well, which includes fixes for some annoying and troublesome issues, like the random reboot issue, and support for Near Field Communication. It also includes a substantial change that prevents Facebook from syncing the way it used to.

Google is aggressively expanding its anti-Facebook ambitions, and [...]

Android 2.2.1 available for the Nexus One

by: James TromansSeptember 24, 2010

Nexus one upgrade via Android Central

The word on the wire is that Android version 2.2.1 is available for the Nexus One. I’ll state it now to avoid disappointment in a few sentences; It is not a major update. At a measly 3.9MB we suspect that this is a simple maintenance release, but as shown in the picture from Android Central, it will make your Nexus One say “FRG83”. Sweet.

Although Google have not released an official note regarding the update, nor is there an official ‘changelog’ to details what is new, really smart people at xda-developers are allegedly stating that this update ‘patches the vulnerability [...]
