Grab Gingberbread for Your Nexus One Manually
Even though Gingbread has begun to hit Nexus One phones here and there, we can imagine some of you are the impatient type. Like Veruca Salt, you want it now. So, what do you do? Take matters into your own hand and do it manually. It’s possible to download the files and do it yourself, even without root access. In fact, the only way to do this update is to have stock recovery on your phone. Thanks to the fine fellas at XDA for putting this together!
