With so many builds of Froyo being pushed out along with the frequency of the updates, I’ve decided to consolidate all the Froyo entries into one post. This should make it easier for you to find the latest Android Froyo updates when you visit this site and less frustrating for those guests that are not interested in Android. Please remember we are not responsible for any damage that may occur from you attempting to flash your phone. Proceed at your discretion. Latest download links and install instructions after the break.

Yet another Froyo OTA update pushed out today just received FRF91 for the Nexus One. This update was tagged as a Security Update to FRF85B. If you don’t want to wait for the latest build to get pushed out to your phone you can download and manually install the update from this link provided by XDA Developers. You must have FRF85B installed in order to install this update. For download instructions just scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Just received the official Nexus One Froyo 2.2 OTA (FRF85B) update. For those of you still waiting here is the latest on the OTA update from the official Google Blog. It upgrades the baseband to 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.12_7 Kernal Version 22.214.171.124-27227-g3c98b0d android-build@apa26#1. The official update installed without any problem over the previous unofficial builds I had installed before.
There has been a Google server link posted that allows you to manually update from FRF83 to FRF85B. The official OTA updated me from FRF72 to FRF85B. The manual link that has been posted will reportedly only update if you have build FRF83 installed
There is another build of Froyo available for the Nexus One: FRF83. The update is available from the download link provided by XDA developers. You can follow the same install instructions and precautions as the previous versions detailed here.
Unfortunately you can only update to the FRF83 build from the FRF50 build. If you have already upgraded to FRF72 the FRF83 build update will fail. I also tried unsuccessfully to reinstall the FRF50 build. So if you are already running FRF72 you will have to wait for the official OTA update. You can check if its available by Browsing to Settings > About phone > System updates, when its available you should receive a notification to download the update.
If you’ve already installed Froyo on your Nexus One (Build FR50) there is now an updated version that has been leaked version FRF72. A small increase in speed has been reported,
no other significant changes have been noted. Noticed one very significant change in the FRF72 build Google Voice is now completely integrated with the phone application. Once you install the update to the latest Froyo build you can no longer see the separate Google voice application nor is it necessary. Others have also noted “keyboard improvements”.
**You must have Android 2.2 Build FR50 before attempting this patch the install instructions are the same as for the full install. They are detailed below

Upgrading Nexus One to Android 2.2 below:
- Download file from
Google link here. Google manual link has been taken down, thank you Android Police for the alternate link.
- Rename the file to update.zip.
- Note that if you’re using Windows and don’t have ” show file extensions” turned on in the file explorer you won’t see a .zip. Just rename it to “update” (no quotes) because it’s already a zipped file.
- Copy the update.zip file onto the root directory of your micro SD card.
- With your Nexus One off, hold down the trackball and press the power button.
- You’ll be booted into a white screen with three Android robots on skateboards. Select ” Bootloader.”
- On the next screen, select ” Recovery.”
- Your phone will reboot, giving you a picture of the Android robot and an exclamation point inside a triangle.
- Now press the power button and volume up button at the same time. It could take a couple of tries.
- Now (using the trackball this time) choose “Apply sdcard:update.zip” and let things run their course.
*After the update completed I got a picture of the Android Robot outside of a box followed by multiple reboots before it was finished installing. It takes awhile be patient.
