android-2.3.5-600x358

Well, well, well - looks like there was more to yesterday's Nexus S GRJ90 leak than originally met the eye. Though the update doesn't contain many changes, the bigwigs at Mountain View apparently deemed it substantial enough to warrant a new version number: 2.3.5.

Again, the update includes:

  • Fixes for the Nexus S 4G's signal reception issues
  • A 4G settings widget for the Nexus S 4G
  • TTY (teletypewriter) support
  • NI push support
  • The NFC secure element, which is critical to Google Wallet

So there you have it - assuming that Droid Life's sources are credible (and given the blog's track record, I'd say they are), you'll be able to refer to the update that should be hitting your Nexus S 4G next Monday not only as GRJ90, but also as Android 2.3.5.

    For the first time ever, I feel the need to ask when MY device is going to get an update after some other device.

    So much for being an early adopter of the T-Mobile Nexus S phone at Christmas...

      I'm more then sure there's an update for 2.3.5 for T-mobile, after all your phone is Google backed. Give it a few weeks at the most

    What is "NI push support"?

    • mordy

      I think Ni instantaneous push (notification) support, not 100% sure though.

  • aj

    Oh thank god. I've been dying for a 4G widget.

  • mordy

    I think Ni is Near instantaneous push (notification) support, not 100% sure though.

    This update did not change the 4g widget.
    the only way to still turn on the 4g is by going into settings.
    if there is a different way to do it please let me know.
