The much awaited Android update was finally unveiled by Google last June 28 and was mentioned on their official blog site.  http://googlenexusoneboard.blogspot.com/2010/06/new-android-22-software-update-for.html

Before that, many users complained about the first OTA update (ERE27) that was started around February from being delivered to their new Nexus One. http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/android/thread?tid=468801cbdf8eb9fe&hl=en I immediately thought that it’s because of the preparation for Froyo update so there’s no need to worry actually.

BTW, here’s my update history just for reference.
  • Stock Nexus One (ERD79) >
  • OTA update to ERE27 >
  • Unlocked Bootloader and played with many customs ROMS ;-) >
  • Grow tired of playing and rolled back to complete stock >
  • No ERE27 OTA update anymore so…>
  • waited  for weeks using ERD79 unrooted >
  • Received FRF91 OTA straight from ERD79

I received the OTA update 4 days after just like Google said. All is good now. At least I felt that my phone is still normal after I rooted it and installed several custom ROMS.

Although custom ROMS are really great, it really depends on the needs. For me, the closer to stock ROM, the better. After this OTA update, I immediately rooted it in order to run root apps especially the Titanium Backup. I simply can’t live without root access :) Right now, I’m running with Leo Froyo ROM which is really the best custom ROM available out there. Since there would be no Nexus Two, the wait starts for Gingerbread. :)
