A handful of lucky Nexus One owners seeing Android 2.2 Froyo already

So here's the thing: TechCrunch's M.G. Siegler apparently awoke to an over-the-air update of Android 2.2 (Froyo) on his Nexus One. And immediately, everybody and their mother started posting "Froyo being pushed out to the Nexus One!" Thing is, only a scant few people seem to actually have gotten the update thus far. So maybe it's being pushed out, and maybe it's not. Let's all take a deep breath, m'kay?

If in fact it is on the way, we'll have the manual update location shortly, and we'll bring you the instructions, just like last time, so you don't have to wait on the OTA update.

For those of you who are running custom recover modules (such as Amon RA's or ClockworkMod, it's noted that you're going to have to go back to the stock recovery to update Froyo.

For what it's worth, I've rolled back my N1, and no update's come down yet. The fact that a tech journalist got an update certainly is a hell of a coincidence, but maybe I'm just jealous, huh? Anyhoo, sound off in our forums if you find out anything. And for the really adventurous, there's an entire thread at XDA Developers of people saying they don't have the update. [via TechCrunch]

  • Froyo 2.2 on moto droid August 2010 or beyond.
  • Twas' just about to post something of this nature. Maybe this time around, Motorola and Big Red will ACTUALLY get it out on time...i'm not getting my damn hopes up though...
  • Wasn't this the same guy who said he got 2.1 for MOTO Droid and it was a fake?
  • Any chance of getting a link posted on how to roll back to stock? For all the people who've never done it before. Myself included.
  • Was there other reports or just the techcrunch guy? I only saw the 1...
  • It's confirmed at multiple sources now. Which means... It's time to cue up all the droid owners screaming about not getting it in every article posted here until it's released. Because that's what you people do. So, go to it...come on, complain and know you want to.
  • @ Jim You do know that's not possible, right? Like, the droid would indicate a VZW subscriber, which doesn't carry the N1. So I'll rate your joke/barb at a 4 for effort, but overall a fail. (my point was that people, no matter how happy they are, the minute something new comes out, will choke this forum to death with immature bitching about what they "deserve", which is total hogwash)
  • @graymulligan All I can say to the droid owners is.... Should have gotten a nexus one ;) Jim
  • awsome ....... this brings hope that froyo is round the corner for the EVO :)
  • Actually, not at all.....sprint needs to ok it, which honestly won't happen soon, just like the hero!
  • HTC has confirmed the EVO is one of several HTC devices getting Froyo.
  • Question: If I am currently using Cynaogen MOD, can I just re-flash Nexus One Vanilla root and get the update?
  • Or because I am rooted am I completely screwed? Do I have to wait for osmeone like cyanogen to make a rooted version of 2.2?
  • i heard one of the guys at engadget got it too, is it possible they pushing only to press units? cause that would be just too weird if 2 of the very few that have gone out were to media guys.
  • Acording to this page: Quote: We've done some additional investigation, and as far as we can tell, Google is only updating review Nexus Ones that had been provided to the press -- not off-the-shelf phones. We'll stay on this and let you know more as soon as we do.
    end-quote So, did Phil buy that N1 he gave away, or was it a Review phone?
    So far, all reports are from T-Mobile phones because those were the ones Google gave out as review phones.
  • We buy our phones.
  • That post on xda is getting over 80 pages and keep going...nerds,, get some life.. it's Saturday.. having said that, I don't have much plan today either..
  • Hello guys, Just have a few question. I am located in india and have a nexus one non-rooted and unlocked version. I want froyo update on it but I am not able to get OTA update though update option. I’ve few question. after installing this update manually, does my N1 converted to non-rooted?
    what about warranty?
    what is the difference between this update and the public update when it will be available?
    can I switch back to the 2.1 after installing this upgrade ?
    and what happen after dialing *#*#2432546#*# ? is it harmful?
