Latest Nexus One Froyo ROM Leak: FRF83

Plain vanilla post folks, 'cause I don't have the time or means to make it as pretty as I usually would.

For those of you still holding out on FRF50, here's an update to the latest leaked ROM:

http://android.clients.google.com/packages/passion/signed-passion-FRF83-from-FRF50.38d66b26.zip

You CANNOT update to this FRF83 version if you have FRF72 installed. You can ONLY update to this ROM if you have already updated to FRF50.

You can now update from FRF72 - see Update 3 below.

This article mentions rooting and flashing of non-stock ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

After being out for just two days, the HTC Aria has been rooted. Turns out the method Android hacker and XDA-Devs forum member Eugene373 (you may remember him as the man who also rooted the MyTouch 3G Slide last Tuesday) used to hack the Slide works for the Aria as well.

evo_N

As if the EVO and Incredible weren’t already great phones, it turns out both are capable of 802.11n.

Incredible

An FCC filing by HTC was posted a few days ago, revealing that the Droid Incredible packs a chip that supports 802.11n, though currently not supported by the OS itself. Speculation around the interwebs is that it means such support will be added in a future update from HTC. I’m slightly less convinced of this than the rest of the blogger-army, but more on that in a minute.

Well, this didn't take long. A samdroid.net admin by the name of LeshaK just announced that he had rooted Galaxy S, after playing with the open source code released by Samsung earlier:

Now we have
1. Full Root access from adb
2. Root in terminal via 'su'

More detailed instructions are posted in the thread.

As with most popular Android phones, a community of developers has cropped up over at xda-developers, who are dedicating their time and leet programming skills to ‘cooking’ and releasing improved ROMs for the EVO 4G.

In this case, developer Avalunchmods has released an overclockable version of Froyo for the EVO 4G, ported from the leaked Nexus One FRF72 release, and it seems like it’s nearly good enough to be a daily driver.

cyanogen

The latest version of the popular CyanogenMod has been released, offering bug fixes and various improvements over the previous version.

If you’ve never used the Cyanogen ROM before, you can read our full review and installation guide here.

Available to download for the Nexus One, Droid, Dream and Magic, CM 5.0.8 sees some great speed increases on older devices that were still a little sluggish under the previous version.

A particularly noticeable addition to 5.0.8 is ADW Launcher, a home replacement app, which is now included in the ROM by default.  Accompanying this is 720p video recording support, which we first saw appear in CM5.0.8-test3 earlier this month.

Last Updated: July 11th, 2010

Where do you go when you have an Android related problem? Where do you hang out on a rainy day? Where does a good percentage of Android news originate from?

I'm talking about Android forums. Today, inspired by this reddit post, I wanted to highlight some of them and provide a list for people looking to ask questions, start an Android related conversation, report a problem, or just become part of another community (of course, you should always be close to Android Police by following us on twitter at @AndroidPolice and keeping up with the RSS feed).

Froyo FRF72

Discovery

Good thing for our readers that I’m a night owl, and I happen to love my Nexus One, and love me some frozen yogurt. Especially together:

Nexus One with Froyo

And now I have my T-Mobile Nexus One updated with the latest and greatest FRF72 build.

I just happened to be browsing a forum about the upcoming official Android 2.2 Froyo release when I see someone leak a URL for the FRF72 build that Google Employees were given a week ago.

android flash

One of the members at xda-developers has managed to compile an APK for Android 2.0 and 2.1, giving users full Flash support on their device!

Achieved by using a plugin on Android 2.x currently used to enable Flash Lite, the APK that’s been created will remove the Lite version of Flash, replacing it with the full version used on Android 2.2.

Android 2.2 has a new feature called com.google.android.feature.GOOGLE_PLUGIN. And Flash usesit to embed itself inside browser.

Galaxy3
Last Updated: June 21st, 2010

Samsung is really diggin’ Android lately, isn't it? Forgetting the Galaxy S rollout for a minute, we now have some news on 2 different handsets, aimed at the lower end - the Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5.

Galaxy 3

The Galaxy 3 is the larger of the two, but frankly it’s still just a little tyke (then again, it’s aimed at little tykes, so maybe it’s fitting). It sports a 3.2” touchscreen running at 240 x 400 px, a 3.2 MP camera with geotagging, and comes with a 1 GB microSD card.
