Motorola Droid, Incredible: Android 2.2 Froyo Update Becoming A Nuisance

By Jamie Pert - Aug 23, 2010

The latest rollout of the Android 2.2 Froyo has not gone smoothly for Motorola and Verizon, due to missing features, cease and desist letters and general annoyances.

Problems started appearing with the original Droid, when users found out that the 2.2 update did not give them the full experience they were hoping for.

The original Motorola Droid does not tether, nor does it become a mobile hotspot in 2.2. But one of the most notable features that it does not come with is Adobe Flash 10.1 (although a second update is scheduled to be released within a few weeks that will make the app available on the Android market)

But that is just the tip of the iceberg, with Motorola Milestone users still not getting the update until Q4 2010 in Europe and Korea. Canada, Latin America and Mexico are still going through an “evaluation” period.

Phones that are not expected to receive the update, at least for the time being are the Cliq, Cliq XT and the Backflip who are still waiting for a 2.1 update, something the Devour will not even get.

Android 2.2 Froyo seems like a big deal for Android users, so much so that various sources have been taking matters into their own hands.

A leaked Android 2.2 Froyo ROM started to scatter around the internet to which Motorola sent cease and desist letters to websites hosting the update.

And at the bottom of it all, Motorola are not the only company who are having Android 2.2 issues.

HTC Droid Incredible users are still waiting for an update that they were supposed to get on August 18, Dell Streak owners are still stuck with Android 1.6 until the end of the year and Samsung Galaxy users are still waiting for confirmation.

Have you had any Android 2.2 Froyo issues?
