FroYo: Awesome Upgrade perspective thread
I just hope all the "Froyo screwed me" threads dont detract from the awesome upgrade that was FroYo.
I put this on another thread:
My wife and I have had a zero problem experience, so FroYo was a win on both of our phones.
Keep things in perspective. There are thousands of Dx users, about 60 of them have had issues. So FroYo has about a .1% screw up rate? I like having a 99.9% pass rate!
The only reason it seems like a flood of issues is because right now, anyone having issues is looking for help on the internet and landing here, many people reporting problems have less than 10 for a post count.

I am firmly in this camp as well. I waited until this evening to update so time will tell, but right now it appears that this update is unleashing the phone's real potential. I have ZERO problems and the phone is so fast and responsive it is kinda hard to get your head around. Process took an entire 18 minutes from start to finish and I cannot find anything at all to complain about. LP+ and Handcent came through flawlessly...... Such a fantastic upgrade so far.

I figured out the problems I was having (thanks to androidforums) and went back to stock, upgraded no prob, after a day of teeth gnashing.
Got to say, everything is working really great. I don't really care about the slide to unlock being slow, when I'm on it I'm on it for a half hour at a time
New camera ui is great. Speed is better. Battery is better. Swype is better. Apps to sd! FLASH!
In short, yeah, awesome.

I'm happy with FroYo...now...
I had to do a hard reset and then a soft factory reset, but no big deal.
Reinstalling apps now.
Pro:Squeaky clean FroYo on the X
Con: Battery Usage stats still FC's on occasion. Again, no biggie as I'm not checking it often anyhow.

I discovered that a factory reset on my X resulted in all apps being re-installed automatically, as part of the reset!!!
I did one factory reset after the initial upgrade (to try to fix an issue with contacts - which is still there). Had a glitch in an app icon stuck in the trash can on the home screen, so did another factory reset. Lo! ALL apps back in place! Couldn't believe it!!
All I had to do was go through the settings again, and back in business. There is a LOT to say in favor of the 2.3!!! Count me in as a supporter!!!
Operator error is, as usual, a major player.Always learning ...

I am loving froyo so far. I updated, rooted, and have been enjoying the updates immensely. I did have the phone randomly reboot once while listening to music but have had nothing happen since.
The only thing I can complain about so far is flash games from addicting games will crash the browser when it loads the pregame ad, but that is no fault of froyo.

It's all in the Update Process?
It seems that alot of folks are having problems with the 2.2 Froyo update, and are winding up with issues that were'nt there prior to 2.2
Anyone have any thoughts???.... Would it be better to get a Droid X with 2.2 installed from the Factory? Thats means you have a clean install, instead of installing on top of 2.1, maybe some of the issues with Froyo 2.2 are stemming from the install process occuring?
Operator Error causes trouble as well, I found that out with my Blackberry 9700
Have any of you Genius's in this thread seen a "Major Improvement in Performance" of the Droid X? It was pretty damned fast before, How is it now?

I'm happy to see this thread, it seems that no matter what wonderful piece of technology comes out there are many people who can do nothing but complain. I'm a bit ashamed that my generation has raised so many spoiled kids who think they are entitled to the best of everything with no effort on their part. I would imagine that many if not most of the most vocal complainers are the same people who were screaming "release froyo NOW and fix any problems with another update later".
To those complaining about the bloatware, I wonder how many would be willing or able to pay the price on this or any other smart phone if it were not there.
I really wasn't having any problems before the update and I'm not having any since.
I see a lot of improvements, it is much faster, for me scrolling through the home screens is faster and smoother and I like a lot of the changes in settings.
I'll admit I'm not a power user and I don't know if I have any improvements in the actual phone part because I am one of those weird people who really don't talk on the phone much. That is why I got this particular phone, I have to pay for cell phone service so it makes more sense to me to pay for one I actually use rather than just to carry around in case I need it.
I am an artist and hobby level photographer and I have found the cameras in cell phones to be little more than useless because of the poor quality pictures they take, I was hoping this 8 mpx camera would be better.
I was pretty disappointed, but I have other cameras so I wasn't pitching a fit about it, since the update I am truly impressed with the quality of pictures this phone takes.
Nice crisp, clear, vivid pictures now, Kudos to Motorola for fixing that.
I'm not so sure I need to carry the Canon in my purse anymore, it can go back to being used on the boat since it is waterproof. Of course it is not close to replacing the DSLR but who would expect it to.
My biggest complaint is that I am spending way too much time on it and on the forums and not getting other things done that I really need to do.

Is there any truth to the rumor that VZW is going to pull the update? One of the threads >>----> http://forum.androidcentral.com/moto...tml#post362128 Indicated that VZW was pullng it?
I'm only asking because the X moved to the top of my list for my next upgrade because of this update.

The X is an awesome phone whether you're running 2.1 or 2.2. Having said that, it seems the people that are having issues on 2.2 are the minority and likely related to some unusual combination of applications they are running. You can't expect to put a kazillion apps on a phone written by wide assortment of developers that little control is imposed on, and never expect a problem to arise. If you're waiting for perfection, it wont happen.Semper Fi

I had stock 2.1...LPP...and about 40 normal apps...i was drunk around midnight the night of the update...check for system update...it started installing...i put it on the charger and went on with my night...woke up the next morning and everything was running perfectly. It seems to me the only people having problems are ones who rooted or tried to do some crazy stuff to their phones. Thats the price you pay when you try and do that stuff, so stop complaining!Droid X > Droid Bionic > Droid Razor > Galaxy Nexus > DROID DNA

I've had no problems either. Haven't even done a factory reset yet (I may not); LPP, 50+ apps, all that good stuff and it updated flawlessly. The biggest "problem" I had was my SMS messages showing up in the wrong order for about a day, but whatever the issue was it cleared up on its own.
