Google Now Rolling Out Android 2.2 (Froyo) to Nexus One Owners

Paul Lilly

In a blog post last Thursday, Android SDK Tech Lead Xavier Ducrohet promised that "Android 2.2 will be here soon, and some devices will get the update in the coming weeks." Making good on that promise, Google has now begun pushing out Android 2.2 , otherwise known as "Froyo," to Nexus One owners.

If you're not seeing the update on your Nexus One just yet, hang tight. Like previous rollouts, Froyo's is staggered, and it appears that members of the press are getting first dibs, says MG Siegler over at TechCrunch. For those of you who find that unacceptable, you can always take matters into your own hands and manually install the update by following these instructions posted on

Android 2.2 ranks as the first mobile OS to fully support Adobe Flash 10.1. In addition, the latest update finally allows users to install applications to an SD card instead of their phone's internal memory. Some of the other features include an app launcher bar in place of the pop-out app tray, an improved camera, and tethering and mobile hotspot functions.
