[Updated] Nexus One Users Waking Up To Froyo?

Update: Engadget is confirming that their own Nexus One has received the device along with various reports popping up on twitter also reporting Froyo update availablity.

Update 2: Want Froyo sweetness on your Nexus One now (No root access needed). Click here for details

Update 3: Google has confirmed Froyo rollout for the Nexus One

Apparently this night is different than all other nights as Nexus One users are waking up to a treat. Well at least some of you are as Google has apparently begun rolling out the Froyo Update to Nexus One users. This is quite unexpected, as Google had just stated at the end of Google IO that it would drop in the “coming weeks” and I suppose they really meant at the end of the coming week. I can see how someone could easily mistake “coming weeks” and end of the week. Honest mistake. Of course, it’s really only just a few one individual(s) receiving this so its possible that a widespread update is still “weeks” away and this is merely a fluke, a test or a tease. Until we can confirm, take all this with a grain of salt but in the meantime, N1 users, watch your phones like hawks.

    This would be great if it were true but I call shenanigans. I wish I weren’t though. I hate yogurt but I want me some Froyo.

  • safil

    sorry but, putting this out based on only one individual is not very ethical if u ask me, and u didn’t. specially since i didn’t get the update, cause only one douche got it.

    • davidohio

      wow Safil, clearly you are very jealous you did not get your update yet but I don’t see anywhere in the article about only 1 person getting the update. It clearly states that SOME people have recieved the update. This does not make the author unethical at all. Idiot.

  • JBLmobileG1

    The BEST part of waking UP… is FROYO in your cup!!! LOL. Hopefully one of my buddies at work received his update today because I am interested to check it out. Especially the hotspots wifi feature. Makes me wonder though… if Tmobile doesn’t approve tethering does that mean any version of Froyo on a Tmobile branded phone would be missing these features? Kinda bad… and almost makes the Nexus One worth getting unless they somehow put a block on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if they charged even more for data on phones that could offer this feature. Hopefully the Slide will have it intact when it gets Froyo. …. but some odd reason I doubt it will.

    • TheLight

      @JBLmobileG1

      I have a G1 and I have been usb tethering for awhile now

    • tomato

      Hahahahaha!!!! LOL

    • kpc21

      USB and bluetooth tethering have been available for a long time by using http://www.junefabrics.com/android/ It works great on my Nexus One.

    • cabledog

      Tethering is enabled and working on an unlocked nexusone with tmobile. The wifi hotspots works well and has a range of about 50 feet from my testing. The browser is much faster. Other small tweaks and I’m still looking at all functions. Overall I am impressed with the build.

    • O.G

      T-mobile doesn’t ban tethering for all deices, only Andriod devices. th HTC HD2 has tethering that works realy good maybe t-mobile will let FROYO have tethering

  • HD2/NEXUS ONE USER

    guess ill turn mine on and hope for the best, this HD2 has been getting all my attention lately

    • HD2/NEXUS ONE USER

      Turned on the N1, 6 updates, no FROYO!!!! Still waiting…….

  • Sean

    Hey David or whoever else wants to chime in! Is there any word on when the Nexus One is hitting retail. Im dying to pick one up but I don’t want to pay five something from the website! And Google said they would be doing that so I’m just wondering when

  • Ducter

    I call bs as well. I hope I am wrong of course but honestly I dont think I am. Google would have said it was going live, that would have generated a great deal more interest. Although, flash beta 10 is available…why would Adobe release it if no update is expected for weeks..

  • Mista

    Any word when does the mytouch going to get this update

  • Apple Fanboy

    I think the n1 is comming out on June 4th with the mytouch slide.

  • xDeToXx

    This was confirmed by Engadget. They got the update on their N1.

  • Ianxxx

    So who is posting the manual update so I don’t have to wait anymore!!!!!!!!

  • tato22

    nothing here yet

  • tomato

    nothing here either.
    San Francisco, CA

  • roebling

    How are notifications sent? If over the cell company’s 3G network then should I disable WiFi until I get the notice? WiFi disables 3G on the Nexus One, when it’s in range.

  • Cameron

    DUDES IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING ISSUES WITH THEIR N1 TODAY? I AM!

    • tomato

      no issues.

  • http://www.suffolk757.com Hilton

    So based on the endgadget reports this article should be updated to say that “review units received the update”. That makes sense that they would push the update out to people who are going to post articles about it before sending it to the masses. That way those articles get written before they have to do the tap dance required to push the update out over the network without bringing down cellular networks.

    • Alex

      um, how would they know that they’re indeed sending them out to the N1′s that belong to bloggers…

      • makobe

        well ya idiot google gave them the n1s directly so they prob have a record of their imei numbers

  • KGB-SPY

  • bRYAN

    You can manually download the update here: http://blog.locut.us/main/2010/5/22/how-to-update-your-nexus-one-to-froyo-22.html. Thanks reddit

  • Some Guy

    The update is located on XDA, everyone should know they always find a way to get what they want…they have the link so its for non-rooted phones as of 1:24pm pct…so us rooted users are either gonna have to wait or go back to stock.

  • Timo

    The 2.2 ROM is already available for a manual update. There’s a link in the thread on Engadget, as well as at XDA. I’m already updated.

    • Timo

      Looks like KGB-SPY beat me to it.

      • KGB-SPY

        Sorry Timo I was pressing F5 on xda-developers for some time…

      • Timo

        @KGB-SPY
        No worries. I’m just excited to have froyo installed. Voice dialing via bluetooth is a super nice (and overdue) addition.

  • Galen20K

  • myg1

  • Steven

    Love it! Running Froyo through the manual install on my Nexus One!

  • tato22

    still no apps to sd its grayed out any one know was up

    • http://www.theblarg.com nathan118

      It has to be turned on by developers using the new SDK, so it doesn’t work for any apps yet.

    • Kpc21

      Where do you find the option for this that is greyed out? I looked under the sd card options and I don’t see any option for it.

  • tato22

    this is what i got from engadget

    Sometimes it’s good to be the chosen child, the special one, and in the eyes of Google the Nexus One is that special phone — at least for the moment. As such it seems to have been given a special treat: access to Froyo, earlier than expected. TechCrunch’s MG Siegler is reporting that his handset received Android 2.2 overnight. So far we’re not hearing too many other reports of folks seeing this update, but that could be thanks to everyone sleeping off a week of exciting announcements. Sound off in comments if you’re waking up to this frosty, low-calorie snack.

    Update: We’re not sure how this is being rolled out, as hardly anyone is seeing updates, but via Droidnytt we found a number of reports on Twitter that people are indeed seeing the update.

    Update 2: Count us among the lucky few who just received the OTA Froyo update, to our original T-Mobile-based device.

    Update 3: We’ve done some additional investigation, and as far as we can tell, Google is only updating review Nexus Ones that had been provided to the press — not off-the-shelf phones. We’ll stay on this and let you know more as soon as we do.

  • tato22

    read the 3 update

  • rushmore

    Based on initial review at Engaget of 2.2, Flash still does not have GPU assist yet.

  • The Hammer

    I got my working Seems fast really really fast

  • HD2/NEXUS ONE USER

    I’m going to wait it out, there is just something about getting that perverbial update message ota. i did it on all the g1 updates i think/hope i can do it on my n1. maybe i need to stop reading how everyone is enjoying froyo

  • jeff

    the manual update is much easier than i thought.
    i am wondering why when i go to certain sites it still says i need flash update. Hulu, etc.

    jeff

  • mike

    Go to the market and download adobe flash and to watch hulu videos do a Google search for it that’s what I did

  • SHANE

    Finally got home and installed FROYO It’s just finishing now,,,, took me a couple tries to figure out but was pretty easy…..

  • http://www.simplethoughtproductions.com Josh Chesarek

    So 2.2 is running nicely on my Nexus One. The one thing I really like is that the phone can now rotate into landscape in either direction. This applies to just about everything including the home screen when in the car dock. The one thing that does not rotate? Video. Overall I am loving the version :-)

  • shane

    ITS TRUE GUYS FROYO IS A BEAST,,,, I’M NOTICING ALOT OF LITTLE CHANGES TOO THAT ARE MAKING THE PHONE SO MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY, BUT ONE THING YOU HAVE TO DO IF YOU DO THE UPDATE IS GO DOWNLOAD ADOBE 10.1 IN THE MARKET,,, THERES JUST ABOUT NO SITE I CANT GET TOO,,, INCLUDING GAMES,,,, I.E. ADDICTING GAMES .COM EVERY GAME HAS WORKED SO FAR ON MY N1 ITS SICK AND THE PHONE IS RUNNING SO SMOOTH….. TAKE IT FROM ME I’VE DONE THE MANUAL UPDATE AND THERES NO ISSUES….

  • mike

    i must say that i am truly impressed with the wifi hotspot feature. as soon as tmobile upgrades their network to hspa+ in my area i will be canceling my dsl internet service from att

  • tato22

    I HOPE EVERY ONE KNOWS THIS IS NOT THE FULL 2.2 is a press release the real one will be out soon as a ota so now we are messing some things

  • JBLmobileG1

    I did it! After lots of thinking… between the Nexus One or the MyTouch Slide… I finally caves it and bought a Nexus One outright. True its a lot of money but that just means I am guaranteed to keep my same plan as well as not be tied down to a contrtact. Plus after all these months the hardware is still top of the line and with Froyo. Released its like a whole new phone! I can’t wait to try this baby out especially with the tethering option. That’s one of the selling points for me and I wouldn’t be surprised if Tmobile took it out of the MyTouch version of Froyo.
