How To Upgrade Your Excalibur From Android 1.6 To 2.1+ Google Apps (with health :D)

Ok, so let’s get busy with this. It’s pretty easy, so just follow the steps and with a bit of patience you’ll get it done in no time and with health!
  1. You can find Android 2.1+ here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/7d2t4884f93hv54/firmware.nb0. Download it onto your PC and then extract it onto a micro SD card where it will be in the root folder.
  2. THIS IS IMPORTANT Back up your data from the phone through your Gmail account and store phone numbers on SIM card, take the SIM card out of the phone.
  3. Put the micro SD card containing the .nbo of Android 2.1+ into your Android phone.
  4. Restart the phone by pressing the volume up button, the camera button together and then press the power button
  5. You’ll see the operations screen, now select download .nB0 from SD card
  6. The phone will automatically run through the reset process for you.
  7. Once it has finished it will show a white screen
  8. Switch the phone off and then switch the phone on again
  9. The phone might start up in Chinese with a blank Chinese screen and a cross in the middle of the phone, don’t panic! It is asking you to calibrate the touch screen, put the stylus (or finger) to the cross and you will then go to the menu screen.
  10. To change the phone back into English, find the application that looks a little like a shiny cog.
  11. This is the settings menu you need. Click on it and go to the second option down then scroll through until you get to the English menu.

Hi there, I tried to follow your instructions to update my new Boston from 1.6 to 2.1. However I didn't get much luck. I downloaded the firmwire through the link above, put it to a SDcard, reboot my Boston. I only got the first two options in your first picture "reboot system now" and "update sdscard: update.zip[camera]", and at the bottom I got " E: can't open /cache/recovery/command ". The updating failed so far. I also tried to update through official Optimus tool. I got the same. I don't know what's going on.
