    There's a catch - it will require rooting the phone. Something I did last night in a couple of hours. Plenty of good guides out there.

    You also need to root your phone to do this, it won't work on stock Android. I wish they'd hurry up getting Froyo out! Anybody know if it's available on any platform yet? I got excited yesterday when there was a system update available on my Desire, was gutted when I realised it wasn't Froyo

    EDIT: Sorry Hightower, you posted about rooting while I was typing this post

    I think there's a beta copy on one of the rooted roms.

    I don't know if you know this but Google mail asks you to change to a @gmail address if you haven't got one when you login to your email now (in a browser).

    If you do it causes problems with your android phone and you need to do a factory reset. Wait until Google fixes this, if they do, and in the meantime keep your @googlemail address. Or if you don't mind doing a reset then obviously you can swap (but I think you loose all your apps and if you have paid for any you have to pay again as it is a different account).

    SayNoTo0870 might just be on market as 0870 (my mistake), or you can install it from here using the QR code

    With regards to beebPlayer, just read on David Johnston's blog he has removed it from the market. Not sure if this QR code will work then but you can try it.

    As far as I know, Android 2.2 is already officially released for the Nexus One in certain countries. HTC are currently working to bring it to the desire, and hopefully other recent models. Not sure about other manufacturers with existing handsets. Given how long it took some manufacturers to provide an upgrade from 1.x to 2.1, it could be a long time if at all

    Getting a bit carried away after finally getting Ubuntu on my Joggler.

    Cyanogen v5.0.7 is from a 2.1 (Eclair) base. I have had this on my rooted Magic for a week or two.

    I think that's about the newest (stable) thing you'll find.

    Has anyone got WiFi Analyzer (by farproc) I can grab a copy of? I can't seem to get a good enough signal for the download site or the site isn't working properly. All other downloads from the Market work fine, except the one I'm after
    Alternatively a site I can download it to my PC so I can transfer it to my phone?

    Thanks

    *Edit* Never mind - found a download Very useful bit of kit
