That's the "first wave" which does not preclude more phones being updated. They're just not making any promises yet.

Shouldn't be any problem for anything Desire or better.
The only reason (it would seem) that google gave up on us N1 owners is their lack of wanting to repartition in an automated update.
The internal system partition is cutting it tight to fit ICS roms. But it can easily be repartitioned and with app2sd, you're not missing anything by cutting the data section down a bit.

The desire (sister of N1) already has a larger system partition because of sense. It just means an ICS upgrade may not include sense.

I have been reading about it and there seems to be a few issues. Some people are having wifi problems, others are saying it has bricked their phone. I have the update on my computer but I think I'm going to wait until they have a version that has worked out the bugs.

The update released is for the nexus s i9020T (wind, t-mobile frequencies), not for the i9020A which telus, bell and rogers have... Hopefully soon!!!

For those that don't follow it closely the boy over on XDA have made good progress on ICS for the Nexus 1.

There are two versions now, one that requires a repartition of HBOOT and a stripped down version that fits on the standard HBOOT.

I'm waffling on whether to upgrade at this point since I'm pretty happy with the AOSP ROM I'm running now.

Android rocks!

I installed ICS on my Nexus S this morning. Works beautifully! Definitely worth installing. I downloaded and installed it via my PC-USB. Will be upgrading my wife's Nexus S tonight.

For some strange reason the upgrade message has now disappeared on me. Hmmm.

Go into settings, about phone, system updates. If it doesn't show there, type *#*#checkin#*#* into the phone's dialler.

I have a rooted Nexus S which could be the problem, I need to look at my options before installing. Don't want to brick it.

I gather you are both not on robelus or any of their subsidiaries?

james: XDA has the official update zip you can apply manually:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1395828

My friend on mobilicity just OTA updated his nexus S(not sure if he bought it there or not)

That said... my next android will be a Google phone. As much as i love HTC i want updates OTA and ASAP. I dont mind flashing roms but at this point my options are very alpha roms that i dont trust..

I'm on Wind. So, it's an AWS phone.
