Final Froyo 2.2 Build Available through OTA on Nexus One
Some Nexus One users have reported that the updated Froyo 2.2 build was pushed to their phone automatically over-the-air. Expectedly non-Nexus One users once again felt left out especially those with newer and far more advanced Android phones than the Nexus One.
If you haven’t received the update over-the-air, you can manually check if it is already available for your Nexus One by checking Settings -> About Phone -> System Update.
Now, if your Nexus One doesn’t have the Froyo 2.2 update yet, you can still get it manually. By downloading this update file and following these steps which were used when the FRF50 build leaked out a couple of weeks ago.
If your Nexus One currently runs on FRF72, you can use this respective files:
- FRF50 to FRF83, download this file from Google, then rename it to update.zip and flash it.
- FRF72 to FRF83, download this file from Google, then rename it to update.zip and flash it.
Once you’ve finished the manual process and your Nexus One starts to boot up, it may take some time before your phone boots up. Don’t worry, you didn’t brick your Nexus One. In a few minutes you’ll see your Nexus One homescreen.
So, are you getting the update for your Nexus One to Froyo 2.2 manually or are you going to wait for the OTA push?
