Android 2.2 FRF85 Update For Nexus One Rolls Out

June 29, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The final update for version 2.2 of the Android operating software has been released by Google for Nexus One handsets on the AT&T and T-Mobile network. Google has also released an update file on its Android site that allows for the new update to be installed on any build of the Android OS.

The update called FRF85 that has been “bulletproofed” became available first as an OTA update for AT&T Nexus One users and later became available for T-Mobile Nexus One users. This is the first build to be distributed on a wide scale that offers support for version 10.1 of Flash.

The latest build will also support the WiFi mobile hotspot feature as well as internet tethering on Nexus One devices. Support for multiple Latin-based keyboard languages is also included in the FRF85 build. There will also be an improvement in the performance of the handset after installing the update.

The Android 2.2 FRF85 update for other Android-based smartphones from manufacturers such as HTC and Motorola will also become available later, though it could take some time owing to the customized user interfaces that are present in those phones.

The Android 2.2 FRF85 update file that is compatible with all the previous builds of Android is available for download here. Else, you can keep checking the notification bar of your Nexus One phone if you are interested in an OTA update.
