Nexus One

The good ol’ Nexus One has received a firmware update from FRG83 to FRG83D. The upgrade is available over-the-air, has the size of merely 1.3MB and brings “important bug fixes and security patches.”

No Gingerbread yet, unfortunately, but Nexus One owners will likely be the first to enjoy Android 2.3 once the next version of Google’s OS arrives within a couple of weeks.

Here’s a description of what the upgrade includes:

  • Updates to the core and framework JARs
  • Updates to the Dalvik VM and Webcore libraries
  • Updates to the Email, Google Services Framework and Market packages.
  • A couple of other very minor patches

Impatient Nexus users who haven’t received the update yet can head to the xda-developers and install it manually: just download the file, rename it to update.zip, copy it to the root of your SD card, go into recovery mode and flash it.
