New Android 2.2 Update for Nexus One Owners

The FRF72 patch of Android 2.2 for the Nexus One is now available for those coming from the FRF50 build that was leaked out some time ago.  No one is really sure yet what this patch does, but there are rumors of browser and Flash improvement.

Instructions…

THIS IS ONLY FOR NEXUS ONE OWNERS.  DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL ON YOUR DROID.

*Note 1* – You have to come from the FRF50 build or this could do some damage.

1.  Download the FRF72 patch here.  (alt link)
2.  Drop it on the root of your SD card and rename it to update.zip.
3.  Boot into recovery and let the magic happen.

Let us know how it goes Nexus One owners!

AGAIN, THIS IS NOT FOR THE DROID.  PLEASE DO NOT EVEN ASK.

Cheers to everyone who sent this in!

    and i thought nexus one already had froyo? So if its out for the N1 that must mean its closer to coming to the droid?

  • http://twitter.com/Pollita_Droid Erica Marchand

    Okay so what if someone was to install this on non nexus one phone? it would probably brick it right… (No im not going to do it, nor am i going to try it)

  • PapaWiskas

    HELP KELLEX!!! I flashed this on my RAZR and now I am stuck at the “M” logo boot screen and my Alltel boot sound doesn't play anymore. I even tried battery pulls, and found out I can't get into recovery. I am screwed aren't I? I think I bricked my RAZR.

    • ROGER THAT

      AFTER YOU PULL OUT THE BATTERY PRESS X, THAN USE SP RECOVERY AND WIPE DATA, THAN TRY AGAIN, SINCE YOUR MOVING UP TO 2.2 ON YOUR FROYO RAZR

    I got a question off topic when I download music from .zip it plays on my phone but it doesn't from .rar any1 know what I'm talking about

    • Greg668771

      our droids recognize .zip files… you need an app for .rar files… on my computer i use winrar… it is shareware that works way past the handicap date.

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/I37YLWJRR4XCAJJIXULRSXABZQ Eduardo

        Oh ok ic now so what app is it I would need to get? Thanks

    Is this nexus life now? Seriously what's with all the nexus one posts.don't even start with all the incredible information I have seen lately can't you tell when a device is dead, apparently verizon can, and we all know how smart they are. Keep up the great work man especially the saturday posts. Twas a bad joke but was still a joke

    • kellex

      Bah! I may turn Sunday's into Nexus One-day. :P

      • matholomus

        hahaha thatll be great sine i have a Nexus One lol.. im on this site constantly.. thanks Kellex

  • RealGame22

    It will be ported to the Moto Droid……ASAP!!

  • PsychoticPenguin

    What's the deal with “First”? What does a post like this accomplish? Every time I get a tweet I see someone that just posts First and no other informational value.

    Is this some type of contest that I'm missing out on, is Kellex giving out lollipops for being “First”?

    Just kidding have fun guys…..

    Official 2.2 ought to be coming soon for us Droid users, an update to the Nexus usually means the Droid is next from what I've seen.

    • Ludacrosse05

      My girlfriend told me I need to become a man and take the initiative in things. So I take the initiative and comment first.

      Actually I'm kidding. However, I'll be the first to admit it, I don't know why we say first.

      • kellex

        I like the first battles. Sometimes you just need something to break the ice and it works nicely. :)

        • briderx

          First

    • Jess

      Being first isn't a contest. I think Kellex should give out lollipops for 17th. Or 31st. Maybe 167th on the day 2.2. is out officially. And for future reference, Kellex, my favorite is cherry.

      • Octotron

        But it is a contest. Totally a contest.

    • KillaPenguin

      Give me my animal back.

  • Mrjava

    oh boy oh boy oh boy

  • Ace Z.

    Is this for the DROID???? Cool I'm installing now…=)

    • joshbroton

      <joke>It's not working for me, did you get it to work?? I think it broke my Droid! It won't get off the M!!</joke>

      • kellex

        This is me pimp slapping both of you. :P

        • Ludacrosse05

          Do I have to be rooted to be able to do this too?

          • KillaPenguin

            I do think a custom recovery is a must, although I've read on the interwebs that people have gotten it to work by renaming the file update.zip.

          • Ludacrosse05

            There are a lot of stupid people on the interweb. I thought I needed to unzip the file and put the folder into my nandroid folder? Wait, I don't see a nandroid folder. Crap. Does that mean I bricked it?

          • kellex

            Haha priceless. Luda +1 again.

        • Octotron

          Kellex likes to abuse people. His hand has to hurt by now from hitting me so much. Though, I think I deserve it.. I just make him so mad!

          • neo1738

            you know you did nothing wrong, abusers want you to think you did something wrong…that is unless you came out of the kitchen in which case this is me pimp slapping you 2x

        • StephanC
