Android update fix incoming for Nexus S reboot flaw

Google is planning to push out a fix for the Nexus S reboot problem, a matter of weeks after it was forced to address the same handset’s meta-embarrassing random SMS bug.

The latest glitch with the handset resulted in it regularly and inexplicably rebooting during phone calls. Until recently the search giant appeared unwillingly to acknowledge the problem, presumably in a bid to avoid an iPhone 4-style PRmaggeddon.

However, that all changed yesterday. Google employee Ry Guy has weighed in on the official thread about the problem, detailing work on a fix which it’s claimed ought to be here within the next two weeks at the latest.

Guy stated: “The initial results of our tests look very promising. At this rate we will most likely be rolling out an OTA to resolve this issue within one to two weeks.

“We really appreciate your patience as we do our final verifications on this fix before sending it out.”

The now-fixed but much-reported SMS bug meant that Nexus S users’ text messages were inadvertently sent to the wrong recipients – with often hugely embarrassing consequences.
