    Needed: Idiots guide to manual 2.2 update

    Maybe its the beer. I'm running stock on an ere27 and have no idea how to download and update to froyo. Clicked on the link. Got the error message. Read the guide and am still befuddled. I do not have pc access or my usb cord as I'm on the road for the next week.

    HELP!

    To get started... you need a pc in order to download the package unto your Nexus,
    + USB cable.

    Otherwise you will have to wait for it to be 'pushed' unto your Nexus.

    ^ That's what I thought as well, Bishop, but iphoneuser was claiming in the other thread he was able to download the froyo file directly on his N1. I tried multiple to do this and just kept getting an error, unable to download on this device.

    I'll go over there... and figure out how he did it.

    Trying to download the http://android.clients.google.com/pa...7.1e519a24.zip file directly to my N1 from that thread still just gives me the same "Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone."

    Do you have any File Manager on your phone, like Astro? I *think* you may need an app that recognises the .zip extension.

    I do not.

    Should I give that a try? Search "Astro" in the Market?
