Here We Go Again! Another Nexus One Froyo Build is Now Available

Another Froyo update is now being pushed out to some Nexus One smartphones. Apparently, this time it is Froyo build FRF85B and it is now available via download from Google’s servers(you can only upgrade if you are currently on the FRF83 Froyo build).  Click here to download for a manual install. I will be installing this as soon as I can and will update this post when I do. Happy manually installing Nexus One owners!

Oh, and let us know if you notice any changes!

    Got mine. Google must be getting very close to the final release. Builds are becoming more and more frequent. Haven't noticed anything different with this build.

    I'm on a stock AT&T Nexus One, never updated, and it's downloading on mine right now. 44.3MB. Android Update 2.2. Wouldn't you know my battery is to low, so it wants to wait to update until there is more charge. CHARGING!

      I got impatient waiting for the notification, so I did a manual update with this. Worked on my completely stock 2.1u1 Rogers/AT&T N1.

  • sveres

    Updated my N1 to FRF85B straight from EPE54B (2.1). Works great.

  • eric

    After I manually updated from FRF83, I find there is more spare RAM in my phone, which jumps from about 200MB to about 240MB
