Google Nexus One owners get Android 2.2 update

If you happen to own the superphone from Google, you’ll be pleased to know that the official Android 2.2 update can be found via a direct link or through an over-the-air update. Either way, the update weighs in at less than 1MB (900 plus KB to be exact). There is no official changelog just yet, but speculation is rife that the previous exploit used to obtain root access without unlocking the bootloader has been patched. This update currently applies to AT&T and T-Mobile handsets, and not everyone has received the upgrade automatically yet. The international audience is still holding their breath while waiting for Google to start being more aggresive with Android 2.2 update releases elsewhere. Bear in mind that other handsets apart from the Nexus One will probably receive their own Android 2.2 update in the coming weeks, although that depends a whole lot on how customized their UIs may be.
