The Wait Is Over - Android 2.2 Froyo Source Out Today!!!

What a day! We were hoping for this but never expected it to actually happen - Andy Rubin, VP of engineering at Google and one of the main guys behind Android, just announced that the Froyo source is going to be available today:

1:41PM Andy Rubin: "If you're a third party developer who's built an app for Android, you can talk to it from the cloud." Talking up Froyo -- it's being open-sourced as of today.

That's right - the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) is seeping through into the public source tree as we speak.

Check it out right here - http://android.git.kernel.org/?o=age

The Wait Is Over - Android 2.2 Froyo Source Out Today!!!

Sweet, delicious Froyo drops!

So What Does This Mean To Us?

  • it means the code for Froyo has been completed and frozen
  • it means developers can download and start porting their custom ROMs to the official Froyo code, starting pretty much immediately and throughout the day, as the code upload continues
  • it means the Nexus One will likely be getting the official update really-really soon
  • it means manufacturers now have a baseline with which to merge their custom UIs

Who is excited!?

    Tis is very good news, looks like HTC were right about the Desire getting FroYo in the next two weeks.

    I need that OTA FROYO in my nexus today!

  • Simon

    Excellent news, but a while I feel until us desire users see OTA with Sense, but fingers crossed, or maybe my first venture into rooting for a Froyo Desire ROM.

  • Fred242

    Can we track the OTA release to stock Nexus Ones running 2.1 using a shared map like Google Maps with the 'collaborate' feature? I would love the see the progress on "The Big Board".
