Nexus One Receiving Froyo OTA Update FRF85B?

First it was FRF50, then FRF72 and FRF83 and now FRF85b?  According to Nexus One owners, a new OTA update is arriving as we’re typing this out.  The file is small (only 506K) and obviously patches something from the FRF83 build.  No telling exactly what that is, but we’ll do our best to keep you posted once we find out.

*NOT FOR THE MOTOROLA DROID. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL ON ONE.

    omg! that's too funny.

    Google releases the updates to Android but in order for the Droid to get them Motorola has to bring their customized version of Android forward to Froyo. That is the reason I got a Nexus One, because I knew we would be the first to get the update. Luckily for you (compared to other phone owners) Motorola is pretty quick to update. If it's true the Froyo is the easiest upgrade to date, you'll probably get your Froyo by the end of July at the earliest.

    OMG, i just rooted finaly! I dont know what the heck i am doing but this is going to be a fun night! Where do i find the 2.2 update stuff w. flash? Also what does it mean to Flash your device?

    • The_Other_Ray

      Oh happy days are here again.

      I downloaded an app called rom manager from the market to install the latest froyo rom from bugless beast (and you'll find others there as well). It's the easiest. Not sure if the free version of rom manager gives you bugless beast since I bought the full version right away.

      But if you download rom manager, click on “clockwork mod recovery” first before installing any roms. There is a manual way to install roms but it is much easier through rom manager.

      All the instructions on how to use rom manager can be found on this site anyways so whichever you decide, enjoy your new phone!

  • Stinking Fish

    YUSS! Downloading my OTA 2.2 update for my nexus one at this moment! Build number forthcoming….

    • Stinking Fish

      Completely stock nexus one, OTA 2.2 update, FRF85b. Seems it is the final build. Holy sheezy this thing rules. Here's hoping the rollout comes to all other eligible android users ASAP.

  • Cam

    Just installed FRF85B to my Nexus and its running super smooth…coming from build FRF83 ( didnt notice any problems so i cant tell any difference just yet ). If i didnt own a Nexus i would want a droid or droid 2 because I would rather have a “vanilla” android. So I hope u Droid owners get Froyo soon…good luck..

    Froyo (FRF85) was released. Repackaged a full zip for ROM Manager (not an incremental).

    • Teabling

      omg! that's too funny.

  • Adamania

    Okay, so I tried installing this on my Droid and it caught fire! Apparently my Droid didn't like the update? Any ideas?! :p

    I love the fact that there needs to be a disclaimer because there are people who would actually try this. Makes me giggle.

  • http://twitter.com/wmsco1 wmsco1

    Well, it's been a couple of days, and that means it's time for another Android 2.2 update to be pushed out to some Nexus Ones. Today's special is FRF85B, and it's a measly little506k download. You can snag it from Google's servers here, if you

    • eddieonofre

      lol I think this is teh way google is going to fight the rooting
      the will launch an update every week
      so the root user will always be behing the lastes version and when they finally get to work a build the launch another one….

  • Wesc510

    has anyone tried putting it on a droid?

    • http://twitter.com/d_james2410 Derrick James

      unless you wanna bust your phone up, nobody is stupid enough to do that. OS is designed for Nexus One and snapdragon.

        I did it….seems to work fine :-P

        Just Kidding!!! haha

      I spilled some frozen custard on my Droid the other day, but that's as close as I've come. When Dr. Droid says “*NOT FOR THE MOTOROLA DROID. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL ON ONE.” I tend to think it's a very bad idea.

    • http://twitter.com/d_james2410 Derrick James

      indeed

  • The_Other_Ray

    This is off topic but I have bb 0.3 installed and now my screen flashes a black screen really fast sometimes. Anyone know what might be causing this? Running at 800.

    • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

      It is actually the droid x eye that loads up on the boot. It scans your eye every so often cause you to see blackness on your droid, almost as a blink.

      Really though, I have no Idea hasn't happened to me yet.

    • eddieonofre

      No idea I got th last update frf83 at running at 800 and have no problem with it.
      The only thing id=s that once changed my wallpaper to the rock wall. Who know why it happend but havent happened again

      • The_Other_Ray

        well I noticed it only happens when I visit this site. Maybe something is on the page that causes my phone to refresh the display really quickly. I've been surfing the net elsewhere for a while and nothing but once I get here, it did it fairly quickly.

        • eddieonofre

          mmm… it might be but I dont see a reason for a web page to do that
          it is on a specific web page or just happens randomly?

          • The_Other_Ray

            It happens when it loss up the comments section. The status bar at the top completes once after the entire page is loaded. Then I see the status bar again for some reason. Them I see it the third time and that's when the screen flashes really quick. Never happened before bb v0.3. And it only happens on this website.

          • eddieonofre

            I see ur point, Seems that i got the same problem
            I think it had to do with the comment coz the load separately from the page.
            so those flashes are the page reloading to show the comments.
            But it is not big of a deal I can survive with that

      I know Pete said people having issues loaded a new kernal and it worked better, you may want to try that? You can also try running the fix permissions from rom manager or the bb tools app.
      Also, did you wipe the data and cache before going to .3? That's always a good last resort.

      • The_Other_Ray

        Yes I installed permissions fix and wiped before installing.

            ha wam and stephan your spanish is backwards. siete comes before ocho which is eight. but saying uno seems to be better than “first”
