froyo Everyone jumped at the opportunity, including CTitanic and myself,  at getting the new release for Google’s Nexus One phone which has shown great improvements in performance, added features, multiple design changes and the ability to see/download the Flash 10.1 Beta in the Android Market.

Folks from all over have been jumping at the chance to update their phones to 2.2 but the links  and additional download links everyone has been providing have been removed or have traffic issues.

This is another attempt at sharing the link with you:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8KK9YKD3

Hopefully this one will be up for awhile.  Now you need to understand the update process so here are some easy to following instructions.

Update Instructions, not for the beginner and use at your own risk.

  1. Download the file located here on megaupload.
  2. Attach your Nexus One to your computer via a micro USB cable.
    Once the phone is communicating with your computer, on the phone pull down the notification area from the top of the screen to Mount the USB drive.
  3. Transfer the downloaded file to the new drive on your computer.  (For example My Computer –> F:\ (Removable Disk) )
  4. Rename the file to ‘update.zip’.
    If the file doesn’t not show a file extension when you rename, you might have the file extensions invisible so just rename it update.  This will avoid renaming the file update.zip.zip if your on Windows.
  5. Hold down the Power, Volume Down, Trackball until power turns and on with Nexus One logo displayed.
  6. Volume Down to RECOVERY.
  7. Press Power to select.
  8. While Triangle and Android are showing: hold down Power and Volume Up simultaneously.  Try again until blue menu options appear.
  9. Press Volume Down to select update.zip, then trackball to start update.
  10. Allow time for phone to update and complete install after multiple reboots.

 

Alternate resources:

Update: This update was a pre-release for Google Employees and developers and not intended for the general public to manually update.  Users should still be waiting for the “Official” OTA (Over-The-Air) Update, which once available, will occur automatically providing the end-user with an update notification.

    I was able to update my Nexus one, no problem because I was at stock Ere27 firmware. So far it's been good, very happy with the updates….even with the Flash on the browser…i thought Steve Jobs said it would explode on my device and destroy the world…but hey it didn't turn out so bad. Heres a video of my nexus one running flash on the browser – http://www.theborgcollectives.com/2010/05/flash...
