By Posted 29 Sep 2010, 04:26

We have some good news for those of you with a Google Nexus One handset, as we can confirm that the phone has just received a minor update. We have details on how you can update to the new firmware version manually.

As reported from RedmondPie, Google has not yet disclosed what the update does specifically, but since it is just a minor update, it is likely that firmware version 2.2.1 will improve stability and fix up some long-standing bugs on the device.

It is a OTA update which will be releasing soon, but thanks to Android Central and the XDA Forums, there is now a manual download guide for those of you wanting to try this out now.

There are six steps for you to follow, with users needing to download the update from the direct Google link here. Once you have done that, follow the rest of the guide over at RedmondPie.

For those of you who have already updated, let us know if you notice anything worthwhile.
