Flash Player 10.1 is available for public beta and all Android 2.2 (Froyo) users can get it on their devices and enjoy Flash content!
Many users, like me, thought Flash Player 10.1 would come pre-loaded with the Froyo update on the Nexus One, but to our surprise, this was not the case. First after installing the Froyo update, I quickly opened the browser to check for Flash, but there was no Flash Player Android installed.
It’s been just a few minutes since the Android 2.2 manual update file has been released and guess what, we already have the method to root Android 2.2 on Nexus One!
This time, the quick root has been out by Cynogen who has managed to compile a quick root access method for Android 2.2 (Froyo) which adds Busybox and Superuser.
Nexus One users with rooted devices have just been blessed with the manual update file of Android 2.2 FRF50 (Froyo).
If you don’t have a rooted phone, you can follow the tutorial given here to get the OTA Android 2.2 (FRF50) update for your phone. But in case, like mine, your Nexus One is rooted, keep reading below.
We knew it would come sooner or later. Yes, the Android 2.2 (Froyo) manual update update for the Nexus One is finally here and is available for download!
Nexus One users who have rooted their device can now grab the manual Android 2.2 FRF50 update for their devices.
Android 2.2 (Froyo) is now available to most of the Nexus One users, ofcourse, except the users have rooted their N1 will have to wait for an officialFroyo dump for their devices to update.
This update comes with an interesting feature which was never highlighted at the Google I/O 2010, trackball colours! This feature was rumoured months ago to be included in the next Android update, and it really is, but was never mentioned anywhere by Google. Or may be, it’s only for the N1 trackball?
Android 2.2 release was an epic slap on Apple’s face, which was announced at the Google I/O 2010, two days ago. The update has already started rolling out to the Nexus One users, hence the advantage of owning a “Google Phone”.
In all the excitement for Froyo, we totally skip out something what Google showed us at the Google I/O. In the videos where google shows what they have in store for Android next, they revealed (probably) Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) UI, which looks like a refresh from what we have in Froyo and previous versions.
Seesmic has just announced Seesmic for iPhone which is now available in the App Store! Twitter announced their official app for iPhone yesterday, which is Tweetie 3.0, but Seesmic just went live and is now available for download.
Seesmic is already available for other devices. First for BlackBerry, then released Seesmic for Android which is now one of the most popular Twitter clients (and my favourite) on Android.
A big day for Android developers today! Google has announced some long-wanted and really cool features at the Google I/O event. Android 2.2 and Google TV are the biggest announcements so far!
Android 2.2 (Froyo) SDK is now available to developers and start playing with all the awesome API’s and features announced today.
Google I/O live stream is available on YouTube, in case you want to watch the presentations. The event is about to start in around 40 minutes. I’m keeping a track of it, thanks to the Google I/O Android app.
The official Google streaming links have been posted below the screenshot of the Google I/O Android app.
