Manually Install Android 2.3.4 on Your T-Mobile Nexus S

Who wants to wait around for those “next few weeks” to come and pass so that they can get Android 2.3.4 on their Nexus S?  If we know the mentality in the typical Nexus S user, they are rooted and ready.  They’ve have already tweaked and modified their phone, perhaps already running another ROM altogether.  But now that video chat through Google Talk is coming, the stock Android experience might be worth checking out again.  So, if that sounds like you, then you’ll be happy to know that XDA has your back again.  If you’re running GRI40 on your Nexus S, you can have 2.3.4 today.

    Had to do a clean install of 2.3.3 first, but other than that, the 2.3.4 update was super-simple. Video talk works perfectly!

    This great! I’m looking forward to installing this when I get home. Unfortunately, I barely have a good signal at work.
