Nexus S gets first update to fix ures browser lag on the first Android 2.3 phone and also addresses some bugs in the new version of Google Maps. Other bugs have also been touched.The speed of the update supports arguments against the fragmentation of the OS, as early owners got a fix less than a week after sale. Most Android phones often face delays of weeks or more for minor fixes and months for major releases such as Android 2.2 or 2.3. Google has partly addressed the issue by breaking out core apps like Gmail and Google Maps into stand-alone updates.

  • Rename it to “update”

  • Use power button to select it
  • The device should reboot into recovery mode
  • If done correctly, a phone with a triangle should appear on the screen
