Android 2.2 Froyo

The wait for Froyo is over, folks -- well, at least for those of you with the Google Nexus One. The Android 2.2  update that was pushed out in the afternoon -- FRF85B -- indeed is the official release. And just like we said they would, Google announced the update today:

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.

If you're running a custom ROM, you might not get the update pushed to you, so head to the nearest forums (oh, look, here are some) to find the manual updates. [Google]
