On 2 Froyo FR72

News about an update to Froyo has been floating around for a while. This tiny 1.8mb file named FR72 is meant to improve browser speed, flash performance and free up some memory.

While my nexus one didn't really turn out to become a F16 after this update, it did free up some space.

You can download it here from

To install,

Rename the file as and place it on the SD card root folder.

Power off your N1 and then powerup while holding down the volume down key.

This is get you to a system screen where you should select the recovery option. Use your volume keys to navigate and power button to select.

You will get a black screen with a triangle and a confused Droid. Press and hold power and volume up button simultaneously.

You will now see another screen with small blue font. Choose update from SD card option. Use scroll wheel to navigate and press on it to select.

N1 will now start the update process. Once complete, choose the reboot system option.

Your phone may take a few more seconds than normal to boot this time.Don't worry.

Best part is you can do all this from the phone itself. Apple listening? 

I guess this update will work only on Nexus One that are already running Froyo build FR 50.

Though this build is available on Google servers the android guys maintain that this is not the final release candidate.

Given that we have been waiting for the official Froyo release since a month, what's wrong in trying this. We can always switch to the official release as and when it is pushed to our phones. (Highly unlikely in India)

Iphone 4 : Apple replies in style

APPLE has literally shown the middle finger to Google and rest of the flocks by packing in the much critized shortcomings iphone had along with a bunch of class goodies.

Most features like the multi tasking capabilities, threaded view on email etc. were long expected and not a surprise.

What takes iphone to a whole new level is its enhanced media capabilities. A brilliant screen with IPS and a pixel concentration of 324xinch combined with its superb contrast ratio makes iPhone a stunner.

Viewing content on such a screen will be Nirvana and is way above the screens that its competitors got to offer.

Couple that to the increased memory and 1ghz processor and battery life, developers now have a monster and can lavish on graphic intensive gaming and media applications.

For consumers, they now can happily be with the beautiful and polished iphone user experience while not sacrificing on multitasking and similar shortcomings.

I guess Google and its android team will be better off concentrating on the enterprise market and work its way above winmo and blackberry.

Better still, Google should develop a market around Internet and small business where they already lead thanks to the Google apps services.

With iphone 4, Apple has clearly reaffirmed that it will remain unrivalled when it comes to media and internet centric smart phones.

Sad part is how much ever polished and beautiful it is, its still a walled garden!

Remember the canary in a golden cage?!
