Nexus One Android 2.2 Froyo: OTA Update Release Date This Week?

We have an update for Nexus One owners now, as a fresh rumor has indicated that Google may, just may be preparing to release an update OTA to Android 2.2 Froyo – this being the official one of course.

As reported from Phandroid, the rumors have surfaced via SizzledCore.com, as they are claiming that they received the update OTA from Google and have posted a few screenshots proving this.

They state that the build number ( FRF72) is different to the old build number for the Froyo update that was released prematurely (FRF50). They also link to a tweet from a Google employee who also confirmed the FRF72 build version, but that tweet is no longer available – was he asked to remove it?

If we are to believe what these rumors are telling us, the update to Froyo will be 1.8MB and a confirmed feature is improved Adobe Flash 10.1 support.

Hopefully this is no joke and users will be receiving the update OTA soon. Let us know if you do get the notification from Google so we can start letting others know.

… PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE …look at Motorola.. they have jumped the gun with their updates and messed up each time… I for one am happy with my nexus..always have been and regreat manually updating to froyo… its causing a lot of heat (literally my phone is hot more then its cool) and heat is an enemy of electronics. Your nexus is a well designed device. Let Google decide when froyo is fine tuned and ready to be released and your reward shall be great… You can never achieve greatness with haste.

I'm not surprised about the wait time, google is notorious for long beta's and late releases – just think about GMail, iit came out of beta less than a year ago.

Hey guys, what does "upto the providers" mean? Is this the mobile carriers that Google is talking about? I have a nexus one and I am in Australia, will i still get the update via internet?

I just spoke with Google directly and they said they have released the official update for ota and it is up to the providers when they decide to push it through. She estimated that it will be by the end of the month, but would only officially confirm that they did release the official 2.2. She said the manual upgrade was only for test phones and not meant for the general public. She said there is quite a bit more to the official one and it fixes the bugs that came with the manual. She also confirmed that those who… Read more »

I'm as impatient and as excited about this new release as anyone! I'm a software engineer and have an idea of what might be going on over at Google while they get this ready for release, but, I keep checking my N1 for updates every 5 minutes too! And I agree with Ian… Christmas In June!!! I can't wait to run downstairs and play with my new software update!!!

What’s up with all the people complaining about Froyo not being released yet?? They only announce it a few weeks ago and said they’d release it in a few weeks. Are people that stupid to continue to threaten to buy an inferior device from a competitor even though it took that company three months from when they announced the new version and its actual release date? Google said a few weeks, it has only been a few weeks. To all the children from the “me” generation. Welcome to the real world, if you a good product and for it to… Read more »

We Nexus One owners have been quite anxious about this release date. I'm about ready for it as well. Since I live in self-imposed isolation from the Twitter scene, I was thinking about employing someone to check my phone for the OTA update every five minutes while I'm not using it. However, if they hold back the release for much longer this option might become cost prohibitive.
