Upcoming Nexus S Update to Be Android 2.3.5?


Rumor has it the Nexus S 4G will be receiving an update to build number GRJ90 on July 11th, and if the above image is any indication it could be one of the first instances of Android 2.3.5 finding its way to smartphones. The build number pictured is a bit outdated at GRJ85, but according to the tipster who provided DroidLife the goods, Google Wallet using secure NFC is indeed enabled. That’s the same functionality mentioned in the Sprint update documentation. It all adds up to an intriguing possibility. More photos over at the source link below.

  1. I hope all Nexus S phones will be getting that update.

  2. So does this mean my Nexus S on TMO will get updated to????

  3. keep your eyes on xda

  4. Correct your headline. This is the Nexus S 4G, not the Nexus S.

    1. Aren’t they the same phones, though? I mean, is this an update for CDMA networks or something?

      1. No, this update apparently adds the NFC payment functionality. Google has a deal with Mastercard and Sprint, not with T-Mobile. This isn’t coming to the Nexus S. The headline is wrong.

  5. Keep the fragmentation coming Google. You’re doing great.

    1. Keep up with your constant trolling, you’re doing great.

      1. He’s right.. you’re the one actually trolling.

        1. I’ve come across enough of his posts to know where they are going before I even read them. Thanks for your input though.

      2. I actually own a Nexus S. Do you? If not, why are you looking at this article?

      3. No troll feeding.

    2. Sure. Fragmentation. Its like microsoft with that windows 95, 98, me, xp, vista and 7. should have just left everyone on 95, no fragmentation there.

      1. What a terrible analogy. Not surprised though.

        1. What one (admittedly stupid) person calls fragmentation, others call progress. Sorry if you can’t wrap your mind around the concept. A mentality like this is the reason you still can’t even get a live wallpaper on some other phones.

      2. I’m not going to lie. That analogy is backwards. With that, you can keep your computer, but you have to buy the software.

        With Android. You have to buy the phone to get the software.
        See the difference?

    3. And who’s not causing fragmentation?

  6. Well keep in mind you can hexedit anything to say what you want (remember that Xperia play with it’s Android 2.4? turned out to be a typo in the software)

  7. I would find it interesting that 2.3.5 is coming out to a stock phone, but I gave up on stock getting updates fast.

    I mean, the G2 is still on 2.2, but I’m not complaining. Root answers my problems.

    1. G2 isn’t directly supported by google and you shouldn’t complain. You can put cm7/miui/AOSP on your phone. Some people like me (epic user) only have oem based roms to choose from.

      1. I’m not complaining. LoL!! And I didn’t know all about that not supported
        stuff. I guess the G2X is supported then right? Heh heh…
