Nexus One Update

Word on the street and in the Android Central Forums (same difference, really) is that the Nexus One is in the midst of an update to Android 2.2.2 -- build FRG83G. Nope, not Gingerbread yet. The new Froyo version is a scant 558kb, which Google says "contains important bug fixes."

We're checking it out right now. (Here's the manual download location for those who like that sort of thing.) In the meantime, everybody into the forums! Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Nexus One Android 2.2.2 update pushing out -- Build FRG83G

forgot about the SMS bug. This would be a very worth while update if it does that.

So annoyed with getting a really short text message that I can read in the notification bar, pulling that down, tapping on it, getting sent to the main messaging menu, tapping on the person, then seeing the sms that I already read...

OMG I'm in Canada and haven't gotten this update yet ;P

Maybe this update will help prep it to not cause random reboots when Nexus One gets gingerbread?

I was the one who started the thread and I'm in Vancouver. So, don't worry, this will come to you too soon enough :)

heh the folks at Android Central know these OTA rollouts have nothing to do with location/carrier so I was more joking about that.

Ok, so once again, I remind you that I am officially designate by Google as the last person on earth to get a Nexus One OTA, and I usually get it 10 to 14 days after first push.

So assuming Gingerbread CAN'T happen till this update roles in, that means Ginger can't push till an absolute minimum of two more "coming weeks"!!

Hmm, weird. I wonder what this means for carriers if anything. My Evo Shift shipped with 2.2. Not even 2.2.1.

The Nexus S is starting to get the 2.3.2 roll-out right now as well. Samsung support confirms that for the NS it is the SMS bug fix, so I'd say the coincidental timing makes it pretty clear this is the same SMS bug fix for the N1.

Apologize for my ignorance - Is the 2.2.2 update only for the Nexus one? If not would I be able to flash it to my rooted backflip?

Do we name the file update.zip or passimg.zip when we manually update? Also will it wipe my apps and settings when I apply the update?

What use is System Updates, if it doesn't do jack? There's a new update, but yet it's telling my phone is current with 2.2.1.

Not to be a jerk, but this is really exciting news...for all 20 people who still have a Nexus One with the stock recovery so they can download and apply an OTA update.

If you own a Nexus One and you aren't rocking CWM or Amon Ra, you're doing it wrong.

Also, the CM7 nightly builds are awesome. Waaaaay more stable than I thought they would be going in. If you're really desperate for Gingerbread, it's not a bad way to go, and word on the street is that the next nightly build will have these fixes incorporated in.
