Quick note that the official release of Froyo (Android 2.2) is finally trickling down to Google Nexus One users. You’ll get it by the end of the week if not already. You can also download the officially signed release and update via your SD card alternatively.
UPDATE (01/07): The link above is for updating from the Google-IO Froyo release to the final.
The full OTA release is here:
The update from Froyo Google-IO to Froyo-OTA:
- Rename the signed ZIP file to “update.zip” and upload it to your SD Card.
- Power off your Nexus device.
- Turn it on with the “Volume Down” button pressed.
- When the boot loader appears, select “Recovery” using the Volume Up/Down keys to navigate and the Power button to select.
- Once the Nexus has rebooted, the screen will display an exclamation mark with Android. Press and hold down Power and Volume Up, it’ll take a bit of time to register.
- Navigate to “Apply SDCard:update.zip” and wait for the verification to complete and flash your phone.
- After a bit of time the phone will reboot and launch your cultured Froyo release.
- Verify by going to Settings > About Phone. The build number should be FRF83.
- Bon Appetit!
As mentioned in my previous post from a couple of months back, this release packs a bit of punch! Yum!
