A Tweet from the Googlenexus account has announced the above.

Has bug fixes for the Nexus One, video chat for the Nexus S (alas I sold mine) and apparently a few other surprises.

I wonder what?

Hopefully the video chat feature comes to the SGS soon.

Well the surprise wasn't so great

10 chances to win a Nexus S but NZ people are not eligible so unless you have an address in those countries that are eligible, you're out of luck.

Maybe they think NZ is a part of Ozz or maybe they just think we don't matter..

That's pretty advanced since from what I understand the only OTA 2.3.4 has been for the Nexus S with its front and rear facing cameras.  There hasn't been a report yet that I have seen for 2.3.4 for the N1 which I am guessing is more like the Desire than the Nexus S.

Out of interest how did you do it?

Have a look at XDA if you want to know what's available. Better than guessing

Behodar: For N1.


Since there doesn't appear to be anything special for the N1, I think this time I will wait for OTA than download the zip file and do a manual update.

bikinibottom100: running 2.3.4 on my Samsung Galaxy Captivate - works flawlessly (CM7 rom though)


BTW, in response to my earlier post, I do not recommend the CM7 2.3.4 for Samsung glaxy variants. I have a Galaxy and there are quite a few things which bug me. this is because the 2.3.4 for the galaxy port, is based on the 2.3.4 released for the Nexus.
- your external sd card wont work, only the internal will.This is because the Nexus S does not have an external card input
-Very hard to flash update zips as they need to be in the right format for CM7 (edify scripting as opposed to amend)
-problems with busybox / root access, means you cant do all the geeky things you would normally like to.

Suggestion, if you want 2.3.4, make sure you have a nexus S.

Just got it OTA. Can't see any changes from 2.3.3. I guess will just use it and see what happens.
