Shut up, the update will come out when it comes out. Why is that everyone thinks Verizon is such a bad company? They will release the update when it works correctly. Look at the droid 1 it has all kinds of issues cause people weren’t patient. Everyone is so self righteous that they think oh Verizon is bad or google is bad cause the update isn’t available immediately. Jesus it is pathetic, I can wait a couple months with my already amazing incredible that runs fantastic. Google has changed everything and people are just getting too damn greedy. Have some… Read more »

On August 18, I spoke with HTC who informed me that 2.2 had been released to Verizon and was rolling out a week prior. That same date Verizon tech support confirmed that they had received it, but were still testing it and anticipated a rolling out within 2 weeks. These are not rumors. I spoke with tech support at both HTC and Verizon

I have the original Motorola Droid and have been waiting for the update since August 11th when some people started getting it and I still haven't gotten the 2.2 Froyo update

Yeh, umm…everything I've read (admittedly could be more) indicated that the Froyo release date for DX was pushed back to early/mid September. I understand that the update can be installed prior, but more so for ubers than regulars. Also, I thought I understood that the Flash install would be separate if done uber-style. Anyway, further insight would be helpful, thanks in advance.

My Droid isn't running Froyo as of 8/15 11:20AM EST. I keep on wanting to upgrade from the download that's available, but then I heard about the possible virus that was downloaded to a Droid and I figured I should be patient and get it OTA from Verizon. A million bottles of beer on the wall, a million bottles of beer, if one of them should happen to fall, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall. Nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall………. Hopefully… Read more »

I bought my Sprint Evo 4G phone the day it came out. It came with the 2.1 firmware. I too waited with great anticipation for this wonderful Froyo 2.2 update. I installed it the day it was released by Sprint/HTC and did an over the air upgrade. It has a flashlight, an upgrade in the camera department, and claims to make the Internet faster. The downside is some of the 3rd party apps that were installed from the Android app store no longer work. Because of this apps like Sirius radio no longer work. iheartradio does not work unless I… Read more »
