Google Nexus One: Android 2.2 Froyo – Release Date Update

We have an update for Nexus One owners now who are patiently waiting for the ‘official’ update to Android 2.2 Froyo, as Google has issued a fresh statement, reminding the community that it is on the way soon.

As reported from Phandroid, the handset has yet to receive the official update to Froyo, despite a collection of Nexus One owners already running the latest version on their handsets. This is due to a leaked file which became available to download early – before Google yanked it from their servers soon after.

However, here is the latest word from Google regarding the update: ”We are not intentionally holding back on Froyo, just improving the overall experience and quality.I don’t have an exact date to share yet, but we are striving hard to OTA it ASAP.”

While there is no word on an estimated release, I’m sure users will appreciate the update from Google. Hopefully it won’t be too long until the Nexus One gets Froyo for real. Let us know your thoughts on this.

I’m a desire-user and waiting for the new update. An official release date was not announced but people was talking about the end of the juni. It has not appeared yet. So it is a little boring. Google has to hurry with the update before people start to lose their interest on it.

I'm a fan of the Nexus One… switched to it from my iPhone and have not regretted a thing. However, I find it a bit disconcerting that Google would demo Andrioid 2.2 in mid May and state that the update would be coming in the next couple of weeks… Here it is a month later, and they still have not gotten it out officially. To Apple's credit, they anounced the iOS 4 and have released it on time…. then again time will only tell if it is stable or not. My real issue is the lack of information coming from… Read more »

Relax people it will be worth the wait anyone who think they have the real froyo is sadly mistaken if the final version was out it wouldn't be taking this long for the release date, don't port just wait.

you don't need to root your N1 to be able to use the leaked version. I'm running the leaked 2.2 Froyo on a locked bootloader. (the leaked version is google signed therefore does not require the bootloader to be unlocked)

They should have released as soon as it was announced. Then, if you want to root your phone to get it right away, you void your warranty. I'm not doing that considering that my screen went bad on my N1 and it would have cost me at least $150 to pay for that myself. Come on Google, cut the crap and release it. You're almost as bad as the iPhone releasing cut and paste. Hm, that was a joke.

Man, why can't they release a real release date so we know a firm idea of whether this will be weeks or several months down the road? You hear few complaints about the current releases of froyo from media and they love to complain, so what's the issue here?

I really think that Google is waiting for the new iPhone to be released because they want to keep the update news alive so people don’t just focus on Steves new phone it makes sense to me atleast this is all part of there plans its like we are little kids on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa to bring our best toy but only time will tell but I am almost certain that’s the case but I could be wrong!

Indeed, get tired of hearing "soon" it begins to mean nothing after it's used to much.
