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.

How to Setup Email on Your Nexus One

Easy to follow instructions on setting up email (POP3 / IMAP) to work with your Google Nexus One phone.

 

Step 1

Open the ACCOUNTS screen on your Nexus One Phone.

Step 2
Press MENU and touch ADD ACCOUNT. In the Setup Email screen, enter your email address and password. If you’re adding a second or subsequent email address, you can also check the option to use the new account to send all outgoing messages.

Step 3
Touch NEXT. Or, if you need to enter email account settings the wizard can’t configure for you, touch Manual setup.

If you touch Next, Email attempts to communicate with your email service provider to validate your account for sending and receiving mail, using just your email address and password.

Depending on the service provider, you may be asked what kind of email account you have. If you’re not sure, check the settings in the application you use to send and receive email on your computer, or ask your email service provider.

If the wizard determines that your service provider requires other information, or if you touched Manual setup, you’re prompted to enter your email account details. Refer to the settings used by your computer-based email application or your email service provider’s support resources.

Step 4
Enter a name for the account, confirm how you want your name to appear in outgoing mail, and touch Done.

Email setup on your Google Nexus One phone is now complete. :-)
