Froyo Source Code Released to Developer Community


“[Android 2.2] is being open-sourced today. Everyone can start hacking on it right now, and start making it even better.” Those were the words of Google’s own Andy Rubin at today’s Droid X event hosted by Verizon and Motorola. Anyone who wants a piece of the Froyo action only needs to head on over to and they can start tinkering with all the new features inherent in the latest version of Android. I’m sure the devs will have a field day with this one, let the games begin!

  • Dan Thompson

    I sure hope this means that Froyo will be headed to the AT&T Nexus One via OTA very soon….

  • Aeires

    Be nice when the developers start to program the apps to SD card option. That’s what I’ve been waiting the most for.

  • ilaofficial

    Forget the Nexus let’s go EVO world!!!

  • observer

    I’ve been using it for a month now … the leaked version. It’s rock solid, only App to SD card wasn’t working. it’s the new Dawn :)

  • Wyatt Beougher

    Uh, all you N1 fanboys?

    They’re not going to talk about a competitor’s (both hardware and carrier) phone at a conference put on by Motorola and Verizon. And, last I checked, T-Mo/AT&T and HTC were competitors.

  • Wyatt Beougher

    *were competitors to Verizon and Motorola, I meant to say. Accidentally hit the “Submit” button with my touchpad on my laptop.

  • Steve

    forget OTA, lets see the latest cyanogenmod.

  • Brad

    Time to reset my droid to 2.0.1, root, and get a 2.2 ROM….

  • Maj

  • Steve
  • Sanjeev

    So another words there will be a way to put 2.2 the same day as the release of Droid X?

  • BreatheElectro

    This is awesome guys!! DEVS will have a field day with this. :) all in all good for Android and Google!

    Who cares who has what Android phones? lol. I’m happy if u have a EVO, Droid Incredible etc. I’m on a Nexus One running the latest build of 2.2. So….. OTA soon!

  • Hugh

    Cyanogen twittered he will have Froyo tonight but I think it was just a joke.

  • Leon

    Hmmm, iPhone 4 comes out tomorrow (June, 24th) and no one wonders if Froyo won’t be strategically released OTA to Nexus One owners to blunt that news generator. Hmmmm…

  • Steve

    @Leon iphone 4 came out today. Three guys in my office already have theirs.

  • Leon

    @Steve The official date a la Long lines at stores was today. It’s gone out OTA for some already (starting last night).
