Android 2.2 for Nexus One

Version 2.2 of the Android platform is apparently available to download manually to be installed on the Nexus One smartphone, bringing the flagship mobile in line with the latest Google software.

This download has been discovered to be identical to the over the air update that certain US Nexus One owners received in the past few weeks and it is only 1.86MB in size.

To install it, owners apparently have to replace the FRF50 build number with that contained within the file.

The replacement file will bring the Android build up to FRF72 and this will deliver various Android 2.2 improvements, including a smoother, swifter web browsing experience and full support for Flash, according to Phandroid.

Interestingly, reports suggest that the Android update makes the Nexus One far better at detecting 3G networks, which results in better coverage for all owners.
