Chances are you already know about Google's decision to roll out Froyo only days after they said they'd be rolling it out in a "few weeks." But if you own a Nexus One (the first device slated to receive the update) and have yet to receive your update, there's a reason for that. Apparently this roll-out will be "slow" and "staggered," which means that while it will eventually make its way to all N1s it may not happen right away. According to TechCrunch, it appears that members of the press who received N1s at the Nexus One launch event may be receiving updates first, but one thing is for certain, Google has officially confirmed "The roll out to Nexus One devices has begun!"
Now, you don't think we'd leave those of you who haven't received the update without a solution do you? Thanks to the folks over at Phandroid, we've got instructions on how you can manually update your N1 to Android 2.2. Of course, these directions come with the obvious warnings such as: install this update at your own risk, and please (for the love of G-d!) make sure you backup your device first. Also, according to AndroidandMe this update is only confirmed as working on T-Mobile N1s, and if your N1 is currently rooted you need to get it back to stock. Alright, enough of the formalities, go get your Froyo on!
Here are the directions (courtesy of Phandroid):
For those of you who plan to wait it out (and I can't blame you if you do) here's a walkthrough thanks to the folks at AndroidCentral, to give you a taste of what you can expect to receive, in time.
If you decide to manually update, let us know how it goes. If you don't, let us know about that too!
