Google has an update from FRF50 to FRF72: https://android.clients.google.com/packages/passion/signed-passion-FRF72-from-FRF50.bc033f9e.zip

Download, copy to SD card as update.zip, power down, hold volume down and power on, with volume buttons scroll down to "recovery" and press power button, at the attention sign press volume up and power, from the menu select "Apply sdcard:update.zip" with track ball, reboot when finished.

And that process is all it takes to apply a nice rooted 3rd party image :O)

Unfortunately not working for nexus one from vodafon :(.

The phone has to be on FRF50 first.

Volker Weber, 2010-06-19

Phew! This actually was a little bumpier than the update to FRF50. First, I was stuck on the warning sign and had to start over (taking the battey out and stuff), then, after completion, booting seemed to be stuck during the fireworks sequence. On second attempt, everything went fine, though.

And are there any changelogs available? Any word on power management (my Nexus One really acted up, sometimes needing a recharge after 10 hours, sometimes lasting forever)?

Does this fix the Android Market latency issues and non-appearance of forward locked apps?

Jeff Gilfelt, 2010-06-19

@Konstantin - Random battery life is usually caused by a bad app that is stuck open in the background. Download a task/process manager app to see what is going on with your handset.

Ben Rose, 2010-06-19

Jeff, the Market performance seems fixed to me.

I don't know anything about the DRMed apps.

Konstantin/Ben, on newer phones I find it far more useful to use Settings/About Phone/Battery Use to find out where the battery went.
Btw. In my case it is always the screen (>80%), but this reflects my heavy usage. If you use the phone more to make calls or carry it around with you that may not be the case.

Worked like a charm, but echo Konstantin... What did it fix/add?

German vodafon nexus ones won´t update to Froyo because Eclair got a different build (EPF30) an them. You have to jailbreak and loose your warranty to update to Froyo.

Rene Heinze, 2010-06-20

Thanks, for the info Rene. Looks like VF has a newer build. Let's hope that Froyo, once it's released, gets the same build level across the board.

Art, Phandroid said today:

Notable improvements from the new build include a speed bump in the stock browser, around 50MB of increased internal storage space, better flash support, and improved 3G reception

Have not verified any of those claims.

Um...

Why would you install an update to a working phone when there's no indication of what the update does?

I mean, other than to have the newest, coolest version #.

We drive fast cars and install the latest and greatest, so you don't have to. :-)

Volker Weber, 2010-06-21

"Hello, Mr. Wiseman? Yes, this is the National Bureau of Gadgets and Geekiness calling. We're sorry, but your Geek license had to be revoked, as of now. Yes, those comments on that vowe blog, that was just too much. Could you please return your electronic gadgets to your regional NBG&G representative? Thank you."

@Hanno...

Just demote me to Geek, 2nd Class. I install the latest & greatest -> when I know what'll it'll do to my device.

Craig Wiseman, 2010-06-22

I agree - fast cars and the latest frf83
