NSZ-GS7 Canadian OTA link

Post by Undisputed1 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:17 am

I bought the Google TV from Amazon.com, had a gift card I had to use and couldn't wait for it to come to Canada.

Problem is there are different firmwares for different regions and my box currently has the US firmware.

If you are getting a Google TV in Canada, can you please capture the download link for the Canadian firmware so that those of us with US devices in Canada can download and flash the correct firmware.

Hey, just joined this place - seems like the place to be for anything with the GS7.

I'm picking up my box in Canada tomorrow, how can I capture the download link? just screen capture type deal?

Let me know. I will try to capture it

Thanks for the help.

Unfortunately you it is not quite that easy,

There are a few different ways to get the link that is used to capture where the update is being downloaded from, you can monitor the log files and see if something prints out that identifies what the URL might be. I think that this method would be less reliable and would require you to download the android adb drivers.

The other method, would be to monitor the network traffic of the NSZ-GS7 using an application such as Wireshark http://www.wireshark.org/.

The idea here would be for you to route all your network traffic through a computer with Wireshark installed, into your NSZ-GS7. This can be done either by plugging a computer into your router via LAN, and turning your computers wireless router and connecting the NSZ-GS7 to the hotspot created by the computer. Anther user has posted instructions on how to do this here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=25450500&postcount=25.

I think it is easier to connect your computer via wireless connection, read WiFi, and then sharing your connection to the NSZ-GS7 via LAN, this can be done simply within the settings of your wireless adapter, on Windows 7 at least. Then you would follow the same instructions in the post above.

the link that you would be looking for would be in the form,

http:/ /android .clients. google .com/packages/ data/ota/sony_beetle /XXXXXXXX.REL03_NSZGS7_CA2_1104_4384_20120724_URSC_S6725.zip

with the X's replaced with some string of letters and numbers.

NOTE:
The file will be downloaded in the background and you need to be monitoring the traffics before the download happens, it wont work after. So you would need to watch the traffic from the time that the device is first connected to the network, until the download initiates.

Hey, ya common ICS with the laptop - I installed wireshark last night as per another post (US OTA update) type deal.

I'll unplug all my devices and turn off wireless on the others, then just have cable modem -> router -> wireless laptop -> lan to gs7

The box didn't come in today however it's in our order for tomorrow.

Will let you know.

That is not the third update that is the first update for Canada only. Should be changed to avoid confusion.

I've updated the wiki for now, of course anyone can edit it if you want to change it up a bit. There are the other regions updates too, but keeping track will be difficult to say the least. So, if you find more updates, please share!
