Another leaked build of Google Android 2.2 Froyo for the Google Nexus One has been leaked. It’s not entirely clear what if any changes there are between this build and the one leaked a few weeks ago, but it appears likely that this is just a bug fix update, since the update is quite small (under 2MB).
In order to install the update, you’ll want to download the file from Google or a mirror site, rename it to update.zip and copy it to your SD card and then follow the steps below. But bear in mind, this will only work if you have a Google Nexus One that’s running the FRF50 build that was leaked recently and you haven’t rooted your phone.
OK, so here’s how to apply the update:
- Turn off your phone.
- Hold down the power button and the trackball at the same time until a white screen with three Androids on skateboards pops up.
- Use the volume buttons to select “bootloader,” and then press the power button.
- On the next screen, select “recovery.”
- The phone will reboot to show you an Android and an exclamation point.
- Use the trackball to select “apply sdcard:update.zip.”
- Once the installation is complete, select “reboot system now”
Note that it will probably take longer than usual for your phone to reboot. This is normal.
