Everybody's favorite Googler, Ry Guy, is back in the Nexus One forums to reiterate something -- the FRF72 build of Android 2.2 for the Nexus One that popped up over the weekend is not the "official" or "final" build. But you already knew this, right? Let's think it through:
- FRF72 wasn't actually pushed out to the public. Just like with the first build, FRF50, this one was pushed to a few phones, and the download location was discerned and then passed around. If the build is not pushed out to the masses, it's not "official" or "final," now is it?
- FRF72 is not a full ROM -- it's a bunch of patches, really. And since FRF50 isn't an "official" or "final" build, and FRF72 is patches, then FRF72 isn't an official build, now is it?
- It's probably pretty likely that when the "official" or "final" build of Froyo is released for the Nexus One, Google might, you know, announce it or something.
As for Ry Guy, here's what he tell us:
Just dropping in to let you know that the FRF72 build that is floating around is not the official update. The Android team is feverishly working to get a final version out the door, but like passion-ate has mentioned this will only happen once a release candidate meets our quality criteria.
Since today is the Summer Solstice, we know things will be heating up a bit so hopefully Froyo will be on its way shortly. Thanks for your continued patience!
As for us, here's what we say: Have patience. We're excited for everyone to get Android 2.2. And you should be excited, too. But better to have a good update than one that's half-baked. When Froyo's ready, Google will let us all know. It won't be a secret. Trust us. [Nexus One forums via XDA Developers]
