Nexus S, Droid 2 Global OTA Updates Going Out Now


Owners of both Google’s Nexus S and Motorola’s Droid 2 Global are reporting that over-the-air updates have just started showing up on their phones.

The Nexus S update comes just a week after the phone’s US launch, bringing the operating system up to Android 2.3.1. While the phone’s default firmware was build GRH55, after accepting the update your phone will be running GRH78. The 1.9MB patch purports to contain both general bug fixes, as well as updates specific to Maps.

We’re not sure yet exactly what those bug fixes cover. One thing that doesn’t appear to be corrected is the problem that MMS images are low-resolution and appear excessively blurry. We’re hoping that either Google or T-Mobile comes through with an announcement to let Nexus S users know just what changes to expect after they update.

The Droid 2 Global update we caught wind of last Friday has also begun going out to owners of those handsets, updating them to Version.2.4.330.A956.Verizon.en.US. This time we at least know what we’re getting from the software, which mainly focuses on fixing bugs that crop up for international users. International texting is now more convenient, and the phone should now behave properly as its radio transitions between different modes.
