Android 2.2 Froyo FRF91 for Nexus One on OTA

on July 4, 2010 – 7:08 pm9 Comments

I just received a notification on my Nexus one that a new system update was available.   The OTA (Over The Air) update was around 900 kb and the flashing process took about a minute.  You might receive this message if you are on Android 2.2 FroYo build FRF85B or a similar one for AT&T.

No major fixes have been reported but the update says that is contains security fixes for the previous android version.

Do you notice any difference on your nexus one after this update ?

    I got the same update this morning. For me home screen changed with addition of quick buttons around the “all apps” button centered on bottom, with phone button to left and browser button to right.

    Also for some reason required me to re-enter Facebook password.

    But those are the only changes I noticed.

    Also the orientation of the phone changes both ways if you flip it to the right or left unlike before it only worked to the left. I also noticed the text message app has become white it was black before how do i change that back?

    I think my Nexus One is slower after the 91 update…? No quantitative measurements, only anecdotal/observational.

    I have noticed the same changes. Also its cool to know that i can use it as portable wifi hotspot. The options changes in the setting as well. sounds and display was joined together now they are seperate sub tabs. Also I notice the facebook for 2.2 is different. i have a option to view my messaging and also compose and delete without going to the mobile site.

    I received my update around noon today. The first thing I’ve noticed, as far as performance goes, is the amount of free application memory that has been freed up. My task killer says I have about 200M Free while running all of my essential applications. Better than the 120 or so I had before. USB tethering on XP works great (provided you have a good 3G connection). I haven’t tried wifi tethering yet.

    I just downloaded flash and gave it a whirl with the stock browser. I’d say it works well. It doesn’t eat a ton of battery life like all of the Apple fanboys want you to think. It’s a bit choppy here and there depending…but it’s a phone not a desktop. I tested it with an episode of South Park from their site. Definitely watchable.

    I don’t know if I’m crazy, but it seems my battery is lasting a bit longer too…and the phone is measurably faster IMO. I’d say this update is solid. It’s a performance upgrade with a few perks. I’m really happy with it!

    Nexus 1 att version updated to frf91, Its definitely faster but one thing doesn’t work good right now is using the maps and gps causes the phone to reboot on its on . I tried removing some apps and clearing cache out it rebooted after 15 minutes of use with gps…… Any ideas of what causing problem.

    I was updated from the froyo 83. I never got the final froyo 85b. Am I missing something by not getting the 85b update?

    Exactly the same problem as Mikey… phone rebooted almost a dozen times in a single two hour trip. It had been rock solid prior to the froyo update. Other than this maps issue, froyo is FANTASTIC! Yesterday I got 5.5Mbps download on a notebook using the Nexus One as a wireless access point. Incredible!
