Vodafone Germany has been sending out a few interesting tweets lately, and the official word seems to be that Android 2.2 should be rolling out to Nexus One users sometime in the next few days (presumably, those are business days). Granted, we’re working with Google Translate on this one, but it’s probably safe to assume the translation is solid.
I’m a bit surprised there’s even a fuss at all, as the finalized FroYo update has only been rolling out to US N1 users for a short while, and no other phones have yet to receive official FroYo. Read More
While its author openly claims the ROM is far from perfect, most Incredible owners would probably be happy to give this new ROM, codenamed Sky Raider, a whirl simply to see what Froyo+Sense feel like on their rare, practically extinct, phones.
While have not yet tested Sky Raider ourselves, the installation should be familiar to most rooted Incredible owners who have flashed a ROM before.
Note: this ROM appears to require a full wipe (system/user data or “factory” reset). Read More
Lox of the CyanogenMod developer team that unveiled an alpha release of CyanogenMod 6 for the HTC Hero GSM has now added support for CDMA (Sprint) HTC Hero devices.
Instructions and download links below, courtesy of Lox on the CyanogenMod forums:
- First time flashing CM to your Hero (or coming from another ROM)?
1. Unlock your device and install Amon_RA's recovery image
2. Do a Nandroid backup!
3. Update your radio if necessary
Well, this is pretty exciting. Two ROM developers by the names of Maja and udK over at (where else?) XDA-Devs have ported FroYo to the Desire, and enabled 720p video recording – pretty neat stuff. The ROM (v1.0) isn’t quite ready for mass consumption yet – it’s still in testing (v0.3 is available for now, though). Still, it’s definitely something to look forward to, and we’ll be sure to update everyone once the FroYo/720p ROM is released. Read More
Just like with any rumor, you should take this with a grain of salt… however, unlike some other recent rumors, this one seems fairly plausible. Droid Life is reporting that, according to “reliable sources”, the Android 2.2 update rollout for the Motorola Droid will begin on July 13, just two days before the launch of the Droid X.
When the Droid X was announced, they made it clear that the phone would receive the 2.2 update sometime in late August, while the original Droid would receive the update in late July. Read More
This is an alpha release. This means it is buggy, and might have some minor (maybe even substantial) issues upon installation. Download and install at your own risk.
UPDATE: Updated download link for Alpha 3 below. We don’t currently have a change log, unfortunately.
An alpha of CyanogenMod 6 for the Droid has been released, and is up for download. The link, along with the link for FRF85B’s GApps (Google Apps) package, is below. Read More
Here we go again:
You must have FRF85B installed to upgrade. Presumably, ANY Nexus One (AT&T or T-Mobile, etc) that has FRF85B can use this upgrade
See our post about FRF50 for instructions on doing a manual upgrade.

Yesterday, we broke the news that CyanogenMod 6 Alpha 1 was released to the public. Having successfully installed it on an AT&T Nexus One, we can now give you the lowdown on what this release (so far) contains.
Essentially, users can expect an experience that will not stray too far from what CyanogenMod 5.08 changed in terms of the UI. An updated version of ADW Launcher does provide a few enhancements, though. Read More
It’s probably going to be a little messy, and it certainly isn’t going to be perfect. That said, CyanogenMod 6 Alpha 1 is available for Nexus One users now. Download it below…
Disclaimer: This is an ALPHA release (PRE-Experimental Release) and will likely have numerous glitches, app compatibility issues, and all sorts of fun quirks that haven’t been ironed out by the CyanogenMod team yet.
CyanogenMod 6 Alpha 1
FRF85B Google Apps Package (Needed for proper install, flash this FIRST)
If you are on 2.1 or a version of CyanogenMod PRIOR to 5.08, you will need to flash your radio to FRF50 before either of the following.
