Nexus One Receives OTA Update FRF83

On Tuesday, Google came out and said that FRF72 was not official and that they were working feverishly to get the final build of Froyo out to Nexus One owners.  They weren’t lying.  Last night, the FRF83 starting hitting N1’s via OTA and is the real deal.

And of course, someone found the file on one of Google’s servers for those of of you willing to manually update.  Originally the update appeared to only work for those running the FRF50 version of Froyo, but in only a matter of hours someone found the version to work with FRF72..


If coming from FRF50, download FRF83 here.

If coming from FRF72, download FRF83 here.

Don’t feel left out though Droidies!  Source was released yesterday!

Cheers to everyone who sent this in!

    “someone found the file on one of Google’s servers” I love it. Sounds much better than “hacked” or “stole”. Hell, its even better than “took without permission.” Hack the Planet – this message brought to you by zero cool. (love this movie)

    Ok Kellex, i just updated this on my Nexus One, but now my WiFi hotspot is not working.. any suggestions??

  • mkregs

    Froyo is so yesterday's news…isn't it about time for the impatient among us to bitch at Google, Moto, and Big Red for not releasing Gingerbread (or whatever the hell the next one is) yet? 😛

    Darnit-all!!! If I don't get me some Gingerbread soon, I'm going to upgrade my D1 to a Palm Treo 😛

    • Dito_Muertez

      lol. Where's my 2.3?

  • Dito_Muertez

    So, let me get this straight, you're saying this WILL work on my iPhone, correct?

  • TheDon

    Just downloaded and flashed to my Droid! But all that happens is a little green robot jumps around mt screen laughing and singing “You are an idiot!” LOL But its super fast!

    • Rodeojones000

      My favorite comment ever. Thanks for the laugh.

  • what are the changes, and is there a pink camera fix?!?

  • mathewdev

    new features?! any big changes? I hope it's a vast improvement from the leak build..

  • briderx

    Says “Unsupported Rom” when installing this on my Droid.. WTF Kellex? You bricked my phone..

    • Clever….lol

      • briderx

        Now I have to go buy another one and try again.. Maybe I'll try my neighbors phone first.

  • Yea come on Kell, don't forget to put “for nexus ones only” 😛
    Confusing people…lol

    • briderx

      Most of us are smart enough to know better.. Tim… …. …. Poor little fella..

      • Just trying to help………………….as always……lol
        And hey, your avatar needs to show 2.2. Not 2.1 😛

        • briderx

          Yeah, I know Homie.. I have to finish my avatar.. Editing it for myself, since nobody on DL liked it.. Will include Awesome Froyo build 2.2.. 🙂

  • Off topic, but just wanted to share how amazing the Droid X is! I got to play with one for a while yesterday, and man is that screen beautiful! Pictures definitely don't do it justice, the screen is freaking huge! And for as big as it is, the phone is surprisingly light. I definitely can't wait to get one now, after having some hands-on time with it all of my doubts are gone 🙂 Just one thing…bring on the custom ROMS!

  • Makmagic

    to confirm…we cannot install this on the Moto Droid correct?

    • kellex

      That is correct.

      • briderx

        You sure?

        • stock N1 manually updated to FRF50 when it came out but didnt update on FRF72 – when I woke up today I got the OTA update for FRF85B (1.9MB), am in the Philippines… ty Google

  • i doubt this will work for any Droid as this is for the Nexus One… and does this fix the pink camera issue?
