Android 2.2 Froyo on my Nexus One!


By steve - Posted on 01 July 2010

After waiting over a month since I saw it announced at Google IO back in May, I finally have the final build of Froyo (Frozen Yogurt) running on my AT&T Nexus One.

It's great!

All of the promised improvements are there and it really seems faster...

All the things I was really hot for are here:

  • Flash support (so far it works VERY nicely), which I just had to download from the Marketplace after the update.
  • Microsoft ActiveSync support for calendar. Yes!
  • Performance improvements. Zoom!
  • Interface improvements. Wowza!
  • And last, but not least, built in support to become a wifi hotspot! Nice!

The upgrade was pretty fast and totally painless. I didn't wait for the OTA icon to show up, I guess I'm just too impatient, so I downloaded the update from Google, copied it to my SD card, and applied the update. In a matter of minutes I was up and running 2.2 FRF85B.

You can download the update here: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/passion/signed-passion-ota-42...

Here's how to do the update:

  1. Download it and rename it update.zip
  2. Copy the file to the root of your sd card
  3. Turn on your phone while holding power and the trackball
  4. In the bootloader, press the power button
  5. Press volume down to select recovery
  6. When you see the triangle with a ! symbol, press the Power button
  7. Select Apply sdcard: update.zip
  8. When you get the message "update successful", reboot and you'll be running Froyo

Update:
A day or two after updating this by hand, I received an OTA automatically so that I'm now running FRF91. Apparently there were some security patches because I don't notice a difference in the interface or any of the applications.
