Here we are July 13th and NO FROYO UMMM
Well here we are and it look's like the powers to be have gone and done it again
they've had us believing that Froyo was going to drop today i hope that no one was holding there breath and we learned from 2.1
i think there plan all along was to say that 2.2 was coming on the 13th then get everyone upset so when X is offered that every one would go out and Buy X but i am not going to fall for that one
I'll wait till Nov-Dec when pro comes out with 3.0 and Verizon LTE why go out and Buy X when there's going to be a greater phone in 6 months that operates on LTE i hope that people wake up and don't fall for this one
we keep getting that carrot put out in front of us i don't know about any one else but how can you switch phones every time a new one comes out i know in my case i can switch out every two years or every year on the primary account
but who can go out every time a new phone comes out and switch?
how is it possible to do that unless your a tester or a blog person who writes up reviews on these devices
I'd surly like to be able to go out every time a new phone is offered and get a chance to do that but I'm not made of money and can't so i have to wait along with every one else on the latest and greatest OS update
SO to rap up this lil rant I'm waiting along with all of you other droid users on froyo so everyone keep on waiting and don't fall for there trickery
unless you can afford to go out every 3 months and get the latest and greatest
i'm waiting along with you all and am not going to hold my breath :o

- Something new!
There is always a next greatest phone. If you wait for the next greatest phone, you will never buy one. With any tech, get the best that you can when you need to buy a new one, and don't look back. When it is beyond it's useful life, get a the best that is available then. There has never been an official announcement that 2.2 for the Droid would be out today. The only semi-official thing I saw was in July.

That's right -- there wasn't one. Rely on rumors and this is exactly what happens. The only one that led you to believe anything was yourself. Don't count on rumors.

Glad to see most people have common sense. Getting Froyo on my Droid would be real nice, like finding a dollar on the floor, but not that big of a deal. My Droid is still awesome. It hasn't gotten any worse because of Froyo update rumours.
BigHoss - you need to get some perspective.

Well, Flash matters. A lot of websites use it...I won't root, so I await. Last week, we were travelling and trying to find directions back to a restaurant that we'd passed, and info on it....it was a flash site. No info. And my own church still has Flash based pages....

It wasn't an official announcement, just something that Droid Life and a few others picked up. So no carrot. More like a phantom carrot that people talked about without really seeing it.
Trust me, Froyo is WORTH waiting for. (Or worth rooting for)I'm a tech junkie with a weak spot for Good Music, Good Beer, and Excellent Coffee.

first of all guys, you have one of the number one hackable android devices on the market, and it has sufficient specs to run all the latest stuff. So just root your phones, and you could have had Froyo for over a month now. The only people that shouldn't root their phones are those who break their phones monthly. But for most, you'll never have to ask for a warranty replacement. All of the current builds are stable and and likely faster than the official build that will be released by Big Red. Its not like these things are just slapped together, Cyanogen and Bugless beast for example go through a testing period before they are ever released.Blackberry Storm 9530 (1 year)>

And what have the powers that be done; not paid attention to a bunch of blogs in the rumor mill? When I see an official announcement(like there was in January for 2.1), then I'll say something. Or not, because rooting the Droid takes 5 mins at most. I'm running 2.2 as we speak. But besides that, don't complain about something that wasn't gonna happen in the first place, people.

rooted with frf84b
Everybody out there waiting for froyo I can tell you that it definitely is way better than 2.1 but everybody thinks the best part is flash, I've been running 2.2 for a while now and adobe flash player is probably my least favorite aspect of the update. It really isn't as useful as people think.
