Android 2.3.4 available to Nexus S owners via manual download

Did you really think the kiddies over at XDA were going to wait “a few weeks” to get their mitts on Android 2.3.4? Of course not. A sleuthy forum member has uncovered the manual download link for Google’s latest iteration of Gingerbread. The file will update a stock Nexus S, running Android 2.3.3, to the most recent code — for those of you fluent in Android flashing, the package will update devices running build number GRI40 to GRJ22. Sorry Nexus One faithful, nothing for you… yet. If you’re a Nexus S owner looking to get your video-chat on, hit the jump for the download link and enjoy. More →

Thankfully, the gang over at XDA-developers have posted two, Android 2.3.3 download links — one for the Nexus S and one for the Nexus One — for those looking to force-feed Google’s latest and greatest code-base onto their device.

Android 2.2 for Motorola DROID X leaked

Android 2.2 for Motorola DROID X leaked

If you’re a Motorola DROID X owner with a hankering for tinkering, today is a good day for you. The DROID World forums have a leaked build of Android 2.2 ready to go for your beloved DX. The leaked OTA upgrade is in zip format, meaning all you have to do is drop it on your micro-SD card slot (you do have to completely erase your device) and run the update. We’ve put it on one of our DROID Xs and we have to say… so far we’re impressed! The phone seems a bit snappier, there are some nice visual tweaks, and we’re enjoying Google Voice Actions on the 4.3-inch screen. Given the polish on this leak, we’re thinking Froyo for the DROID X has to be right around the corner. Hit the jump to see a quick little video we put together of the new goodies. More →
