Google Nexus One

According to the latest reports by Nexus One users on AT&T and T-Mobile, Google has begun pushing out the final Android 2.2 OTA update in the form of Build FRF85. First, only AT&T Nexus One owners were receiving the update, but then T-Mobile users slowly began receiving the Android 2.2 update. A direct link has been found for the software update on Google servers. Use this link here and it should update your Nexus One no matter what Build you are currently running. Again, proceed with caution if you choose to manually update your device. Feel free to let us know in the comments whether you received the OTA update and what network you are on.

Update:Google officially confirmed the OTA software update to all Nexus One smartphones. You can check out the blog post here. Below is a copy of their announcement post.

Starting today, Nexus One users will begin to receive the Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) over-the-air software update on their phones. This update provides some great new features including support for making your handset a portable hotspot and support for Adobe Flash within the browser. For a complete list of everything we’ve included in Android 2.2, please see the Android 2.2 Platform Highlights.

In order to access the update, you will receive a message on your phone’s notification bar. Just download the update, wait for it to install, and you should be all set. This update will be rolled out gradually to phones – and most users will receive the notification by the end of the week . We hope you enjoy these new features.

  2. When the update came, I pressed the wrong button and messed up the down load, will I get another chance to get the download again ? or do I have to go somewhere to get the OTA download sent to me again ?
    Thanks.
