Nexus One receives Android 2.2 FroYo build via OTA update

Most Android fans dream of an Android 2.2 upgrade, but Nexus One users have been enjoying it for almost a solid month. Google released several FroYo versions starting with build FRF50, which was followed by FRF72, and now we have the latest build of FRF83.

A new over the air update began hitting Nexus One phones tonight and it appears to deliver the official version of Android 2.2, which corresponds with today’s release of the source code. Users can manually download the OTA from Google HERE and install it, but that file only works for users currently on build FRF50.

The best way to upgrade your Nexus One to the latest firmware build is to just check for it. Browse to Settings > About phone > System updates and you should receive a notification to download the update.

I was currently running FRF72 on my Nexus One and about to waste a lot of time downgrading to FRF50 (so I could jump to FRF83), but I received the update as I was typing this post. The update was very minor (644 kb) and installed in several minutes. Nothing appears different from the last build, but I’ll spend some more time with it and report my findings tomorrow.

If you have a Nexus One, please let us know if you received the update (FRF83) and which carrier the phone is operating on.

Update: Here are some more instructions for those who are asking. All these notes pertain to people running an unmodified T-Mobile stock version of Android. No stock update is available for AT&T models at this time. If you have a custom ROM loaded, then refer to developer of that ROM.

  • If your build number is ERExx, then you still have Android 2.1. The instructions to get to FRF50 are here.
  • To go from FRF50 to FRF83, download this file from Google, then rename it to update.zip and flash it.
  • To go from FRF72 to FRF83, download this file from Google, then rename it to update.zip and flash it.
  • If none of this makes any sense and you are having problems, then sit tight and wait for the over the air update to arrive shortly.

      I hope Canada isn’t last to receive the update… Although Google Navigation is now working in Canada!! Much better than Nav Launcher :D

        Im on rogers in Canada, but i dont believe the update is from rogers, it is straight from the google servers. this means once they have the update for your n1′s build, you will receive it. My build is EPE54B.

        • http://whosthisguy.com Brendan

          This is correct. I don’t believe there is an update for the EPE54B build yet, which means that all N1 owners on AT&T, Rogers, Telus and Bell are still waiting for the update, which will come from Google and not through the carrier.

      • http://Website konako

        Actually, you can upgrade your nexus one with Froyo with that update before. And for me its very effiecient already. Just in case, you’re having doubts with this New ROM.

    • http://Website atlfroyo

      from what I hear, there is still yet another version coming through the pipeline as some on the inside have already been upgraded to frf85b.

      supposedly that is coming out in the next 1-2 weeks.

    Is this for AT&T devices as well?

      I just manually update my android 2.2 from frf72 to frf83.. it seems like the only difference from frf72 is the calendar.. the speed in browsing is more fatster… by the way some movie is no longer with this new os.. ere27 has more compatible video files than this new os.. I hope that they can fix this.. 12 of my movies..now only 4 is working.. by the way my location is in philippines.. if can’t wait for ota like me.. then just follow the instructions in this forum… enjoy..

    “I was about to waste a lot of time downgrading to FRF50 then back to FRF83, but I received the update as I was typing this post.”

    So you’re on FRF72 and received the update anyway? Please clarify! Thanks! :)

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      Yeah OTA for FRF72 to FRF83.

      • http://Website justinhub2003

        Can you confirm that copy protected apps are back?

          Yes, copy protected apps work. I just purchased and installed Sniper vs. Sniper by com2us.

        Well hell..how about posting up a logcat on XDA so the rest of us on 72 can get it too!

        So if u have f72 I can still get the new update with out down grading

  • http://Website TerrorByte

    For the majority of Nexus One users, the OTA is NOT available. Yes, they may have the final build ready and they have released the source code for it, but no OTA yet for the masses.

  • http://Website justinhub2003

    Yea Taylor, were you on Stock FRF72 and then received an update? Because Like you I was gonna try to downgrade to get the final final build as Im on stock FRF72.. please let us know

    What if you’re on build ERE27? am I missing something?

  • http://Website kimberly

    I’m still running ERE27 stock, lol..they need to come on with it

  • http://Website STENDEC

    I’m running stock 2.2 FRF50 and haven’t got the OTA yet. When I check the “System Updates” menu it says I’m up to date, so it seems that the OTA is only going out to FRF72 users at the moment.

  • http://Website Rubbinz

    Taylor, some background info on your N1 would help. If yours is one of the N1′s to receive the FRF50 updates OTA direct from Google like the other bloggers/press, and also got an OTA for FRF72 in the same fashion, that would explain why you got the FRF83 OTA as well and others aren’t seeing any update. However, if you’re using a retail N1 and manually applied FRF50 & FRF72, that’s a whole different story and says that FRF83 is indeed final Gold Master and is rolling out OTA to retail units.

    Not sure what’s happening, I have a EPE54B build on my stock unlocked NexusOne. Does that means I wont be getting the FRFXX update?

    • http://Website Greg S.

      Same here! Is this ok?!

      • http://Website Ahmed Eltawil

        Seriously, this is confusing. I am guessing this latest update was for those who manually updated their stock Nexus One to a leaked build. But those who stayed away from any leaked builds and stayed with the current build that came with their Nexus One have to wait till the OTA update straight from Google.

      How is typing that easier than going into your settings?

      • http://Website Rubbinz

        It forces a check-in to the server. Going through the settings menu only displays the last check-in, usually the last bootup or when the last Google sync was completed.

        • http://Website Tom

          I’ve done that, it says “checkin succeeded” and then what? The settings still says “System up to date.” I am on FRF72.

      It’s not Google’s fault, it’s your carrier’s fault. I’m on AT&T, still waiting on official Froyo, of course.

  • http://Website Shane

    I read this as “Google finally released the source for 2.!!!”

    I’ve been running various 2.2 ROMs on my Moto Droid for a while now, and I gotta say that its been a buggy ride at times, especially with the apps to sd stuff. And, there’s a few “features” in there that need to be stripped.

    I’m hoping the release of the real source will help expedite the process for our ROM devs to make really outstanding custom builds.

    There’s some pretty solid ROMs out already, namely from Chevy and Jrummy, but I get a feeling life for my droid is about to get a little better! :D

    • http://Website Joeskie

      Dude shut up no one in this post cares about your droid running hacked 2.2.of course its buggy.look at the garbage phone your using it on.just revert to stock and wait like 1 more year to get the official 2.2.

    FRF83 update worked fine on my FRF50 leak.

    Can’t notice anything new though.

    • http://Website Charbzilla

      One thing that i have noticed with the new build is that my MANAGE APPLICATIONS does not hang anymore as it did with FRF50. The installed applications list would suggest that its loading back basically freezes, until i have to exit out and come back into it. Now with FRF83 the applications load without any fuss.

  • http://Website Green

        • Sean

          thanks for taking the mystery out of it. update went smoothly. the swarming “X” graphic took about 2 minutes at first boot. the phone turns on and behaves and looks the same way it did before the update (though showing build 83 in about phone). Suppose that’s all I could hope for this late at night.
          really hoping this fixes the battery draining issues that seemed to creep up in fr72.

  • http://Website ecs

    umm, article is incomplete- AT&T stock users are at EPE54B (android 2.1). So it seems the OTA updates are only for T-Mobile Nexus One users. Similarly, the manual upgrade steps won’t work unless you are starting from a T-Mobile build.

    Hope that helps!

  • http://Website Pablo

    Still on the FRF50. Wondering if any of you guys who updated to this before had the colour trackball settings in the “DISPLAY” menu. I heard some did and some didn’t. I for one didn’t and have been waiting like most of you for the FRF83 Final release to show up OTA. I also see that if you upgrade from FRF50 to FRF83 manually the file is like 1.78MB ZIP correct? Already downloaded but still weary to see if Google will OTA it like they did with 2.1 update1.
    Hope it arrives by this weekend. Want to show it running at the NHL Entry Draft in L.A. Woohoo!!!
    Good luck to all who are waiting patiently for this OTA!

    I’m on ERE27 here in Malaysia…no OTA update yet…wonder if its ever really gonna come.

Seriously considering manual update if Google doesn’t purge the OTA for the build.

  • http://Website Sodaboy

    There is no way this is the final version of Froyo. Think about it for a second, why would you need to install a leaked version of a beta, if you’re running Android 2.1, just to go to the final?

    If it’s truly the final, the final will be received via an OTA update even if you’re running Android 2.1. Also the final update, even if you downloaded from the web, wouldn’t require you to install FRF50 as a pre-requisitie.

    FRF50 and FRF72 were definitely press only releases, and I’m sure Google would note require you to use a press only release to get your phone to the final.

    Im in Chicago and my friend just received his OTA but I havent. We’re both on tmo. My N1 was rooted using custom rom but now im on FRF 72 Froyo. I dont think I can receive the OTA. The files that are posted for manual update will not work for rooted phones.

    i have just received the OTA for 2.2

    network: TMO
    location: Naperville, IL (suburb of Chicago)

    this thing is fast…i mean really fast. my download speed pre OTA was 1.5mb….now it is 4.5mb

    tethering is awesome…as is the wifi hotspot.

    Update from FRF50 completely hosed my phone. I had to unlock, then go back to the default shipping ROM, then run through the sequenced upgrade process again. 3 hours later….

    • http://Website krc1185

      I had the same problem, where the update to 83 completely screwed my phone. It for some reason no longer received a cell signal, and had to flash to the stock shipping rom as well. I eventually got it fixed, but now I am still stuck back with the original 2.1 shipping ROM without multi-touch. I’m nervous to even try and update manually to anything, but it won’t allow me to receive an OTA just for the 2.1 update-1 that I thought was supposed to happen.

    Wow, after a few hours of trying, I finally got FRF83 installed from FRF72. I was having problems with my computer.

I should have been using androzip all along.

    Any guys out there (Non rooted) who manually installed FRF50 when it was leaked get the OTA update yet? Hear about so many FRF72 guys having problems. And if you did get the update OTA to go from FRF50 to FRF83 how large is the file?
    Hear so many different stories about how large this OTA suppose to be.
    The current link for FRF50 to FRF83 is like 1.78MB in a zip file. Is this correct or is it larger? I’ve read some people say it’s over 50MB in size. But is that file for people still on 2.1 instead of 2.2 FRF50?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I manually update to frf50 then to frf72, now to frf83, and I’m wondering if there is anything in the official OTA that is not in the manual updates (doubt I’ll get the OTA notification since I’m on frf83 already). Anyone know?

    Specifically, aren’t there any options for changing the colors/layout for hte stock sms messaging app? kinda lame now that it’s shown in white/light-grey.

    Also, my wifi seems to randomly stop working after the screen times-out… checked wifi settings and I can’t find anything related to that.

    Lastly, I have no options to move any of my apps to the sd card, either manually, or an auto-setting… ideas? or am i just blind and missing where the setting is.

  • http://Website reddragon72

    I’m not being negative here, but Google has yet to announce the release of Android 2.2 for the Nexus One. With that I will wait till they officially announce it and not an Android site making a jump saying that it is official just because they released the source code and “another” update appeared on a few developer phones.

    I see no real reason to update again till Google makes the Official Android 2.2 announcement.

  • http://www.minormakeswork.com Sean

    I manually installed FRF50 just to manually update to FRF83… I’m loving it! I love lots of small changes coming from eclair! toggling volume all the way down goes straight to vibrate instead of completely silent (that irritated me to no end on eclair). Noticeable speed boosts in overall performance and browser speed. Flash is freakin sweet! The new universal search is nice, they finally got that right. The new camera features are nice and handy on screen, including zoom and effects.

    Carhome is easier and more likely to be USEFUL in the car lol. I’m definitely one of the people that will use cut and paste in Gmail A LOT. They finally fixed some things in contacts as well. Before, when I merged contacts from different sources, the system picked a name from random, I could never pick the name to display for my friends, now it works like I want. Oh! and there’s some changes to the stock messaging and gtalk apps too. Now they have white backgrounds. I like how stock messaging now shows both people’s profile pics in the convo for quick links to contact options, nice. I actually ditched handcent because it kept deleting my messages. Now I use the stock messaging app with sms popup. pretty nice combo. I need to get a text from a friend to see how my colored trackball notification works (thanks to whoever mentioned the app “blink” for setting trackball colors)

    the only things that I find problems with come from app2sd and launcherpro. If I have an app shortcut on the homescreen THEN save that app to sdcard, the shortcut icon won’t display properly. I’m using LauncherPro as a homescreen replacement and the app drawer won’t display a bunch of my protected apps :-( a solution to the problem I found is to longpress on the homescreen and select a shortcut that way, its the only way to show all of my apps. The app drawer shows fine on the stock launcher tho.

    anyway, I’m about to play around with this my (re)new(ed) toy and see how I like the new additions!

    Is anyone having issues with there N1 SD card after the initial release of 2.2 at Google I/O?

    The device will stop reading the card and i have to restart the device almost everyday now. Ill be trying a new memory card. I just find it hard to believe never had any issues with my SD up until this update.

    • http://Website B

      Nah, that’s news to me. Have you tried the card with anything else?

    • http://Website tw

      I have the same problem with a kingston 16 GB card. I am on FRF83 now, but ever since being on FRF72 I started having problems. If the phone went to sleep mode while accessing the card it would not wake up and I would have to remove the battery and restart. Like if I am looking at my pictures and then put the phone down for a few minutes, when I came back to it, the screen was black and it would not come back on. I have since switched back to the stock 4GB card and have no problems. Assuming it was the card.

  • http://twitter.com/windhummer windhummer

    I followed the instructions on this page, manually updated my N1 first to FRF50 and then subsequently to FRF83, all goes fine. Thanks for putting up the information, I definitely recommend to update to FRF83, you have the stability from all the recent bug fixes, the fast performance thanks to the new JIT in 2.2, tethering and the ability to make your phone to serve as a WiFi hotspot, and for the flash fans the flash support in the browser.

    If ever FRF85 or higher comes, we can always do the update again, manually or wait for the OTA for the patient ones.

  • http://Website Guy Bailey

    Updated to FRF50 then to FRF83 – my thoughts

    Super quick, more memory and flash works splendidly – streaming et al. Had to do a factory reset to acivate the speed and extra memory though.

    Downside – can’t use custom ringtones on contacts anymore, have to use pre-selected android one but hopefully this will be fixed with the offical rollout, which I don’t believe this is.
