This is probably one of the more pointless things i've done out of boredom.
Since you are messing around with system files, do a backup to be safe
Download and open root explorer go to /system, mount r/w, hold down build.prop, and select open in text editor
In there, i changed
(its all in the top rows)

ro.build.id=ESE81 to ro.build.id=FRF50
ro.build.display.id=ESE81 to ro.build.display.id=FRF50
ro.build.version.release=2.1-update1 to ro.build.version.release=2.2
ro.product.model=Droid to ro.product.model=Nexus One

then reboot. Go to settings, about phone, and look @ firmware version and Build Number :)

For some custumization fun, change it to what you want to show..

To change it back, go back into root explorer, /system, mount r/w, hold down build.prop, delete, hold down build.prop.back, and rename to build.prop then reset for it to change back

And now you know how all those random 'I have Froyo' images show up.. Hey.. think you could fool Adobe into letting you install Flash Lite :p
