    Post Want to upgrade manually yourself to froyo?

    As we just found out, Nexus Ones are now slowly being graced with Android 2.2 Froyo in a roll out of the new OS. N1 owners are sure to get it pretty soon, but if pretty soon isn’t soon enough, you can now perform a manual update thanks to some sly sleuths at #android on Freenode (amongst others).
    One of those “sly sleuths” was Michael Novak Jr. who tipped us off after tweeting it out:

    It didn’t take long before he was up and running with it, telling us it “feels nice” and threw in a “fast” and “awesome”. That’s exactly the type of stuff we’re looking for.
    Want to upgrade manually yourself?

    1. Download the Android 2.2 firmware for the Nexus One – here is the link to download
    2. Rename the file update.zip and copy it to your microSD card via USB. [Note: make sure the file is named update.zip and not update.zip.zip.]
    3. Power down your Nexus One
    4. Hold down the “Volume Down” button as you power the phone back on.
    5. A screen should appear showing your phone’s system searching for various files. Scroll down to “recovery” and press the “Power” button.
    6. When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the “Power” and “Volume Up” buttons at the same time.
    7. From the menu that appears, select “Apply sdcard:update.zip.”
    8. When the screen displays “Install from sdcard complete” select “reboot system now” and wait for the phone to power back up.

    There you go! You now have Android 2.2 on your Nexus One, not to mention a faster device, automatic upgrading of apps, a “comments” tab on Android Market and a bunch more. Here are some more screenshots courtesy of Mike Novak:


    Enjoy!
