Just hours ago Google announced Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, with some Nexus S fixes and the big news: video chat support. At the time, the company stated that the update would “gradually roll out to Nexus S devices in the next few weeks”, but you may not even have to wait that long. Jean-Baptiste Queru, Android Software Engineer with Google, has uploaded Android 2.3.4, build GRJ22, to the Android Open-Source Project.
Besides the source code, Queru has uploaded the proprietary binary files for the Nexus S, meaning it shouldn’t be long at all before some Android fans compile the code and come up with a ROM suitable for you to upgrade your Nexus S with, ahead of Google’s OTA distribution.
For those of us without a Nexus S, availability of the this code means that those involved with the projects releasing custom ROM replacements like CyanogenMod can start the task of integrating Android 2.3.4 into their work.
