Folks, the long wait is over. The source code Android 2.2 (FroYo) has finally been released over at Google's AOSP. The bad news is, you cannot just yet download FroYo to your handsets. The good news, developers can start utilizing this code to build ROMs for most Android-based headsets on the market, from the Magic and Dream, to the EVO 4G and of course, our beloved Moto Droids. The code will be available to Google's hardware partners, including Motorola, HTC, Sony, Dell, Acer, etc, but in addition will be of much service to Android's hacking community.
The famed Android developer/hacker extraordinaire, Cyanogen, is already hard at work producing a FroYo-flavored ROM fully based from source. With help from others in the development community (specifically Koush for the Motorola Droid), expect to see FroYo-flavored ROMs (dubbed CyanogenMod 6, or CM6) soon for the Nexus One, Droid, Dream, Magic, Desire, Evo, and Slide.
If you're a developer, check out android.git.kernel.org Git for information on how to download the newest source code. For Android enthusiasts, make sure you follow Cyanogen for latest updates on when you should expect to see FroYo on your handset! And of course keep your eyes peeled on DroidForums.net for the latest Android news!
