    I was so close to rooting and modding again yesterday, and then I thought that if I did the official 2.2 would come out for sure. I'm not sure if I'm proven right or not now. Either way, I'm happy

    Why would they cut out one of the biggest features that Google's been touting about 2.1? That'd have been like they cut out multitouch from 2.1!

    The Verizon site touts all the benefits but fails to mention JIT/speed.

    I don't see that famed PDF file with all the features everyone is talking about. I see a "How To Upgrade" page, which has a blurb about the Froyo update, but no PDF. Direct link to the PDF, please?

    I ran the leaked Vzw ROM today. It was fine. I was able to download the wifi tether and it ran BUT I am rooted so not sure how that figures in. I do not want the OTA update as I am running over clocked on 2.2 now with bb .4 and didn't see anything extra in the Vzw release. Rom manager rules.

    If it does it'll cost ya!


    No way Verizon would hand that kinda goodies out for free.










    But to be honest, after I got 2.1, I kinda stopped caring about the updates, yeah 2.2 will be neat. But I am sure they'll leave out the new launcher/multiple home screens/ free wifi-hotspot

    Not that they'd ever leave us out of a full update! *cough*








    UPDATE:

    I am a big poo!

    Looks like we'll be getting the 5 home screens/new launcher/ BT dialing/ remote wipe/ all the other typical 2.2 updates. But still no mention of WIFI tether. SHOCKER!

    it's sad if rumors to release froyo 2.2 on Aug 6th is true for VZW. Largest US wireless carrier places third on the froyo release to its handsets, just sad. you would think being biggest wouldn't mean being slowest on updates and releases. maybe i should have gone over to Sprint. wonder if or when VZ will go 4G if ever. especially as slow as they've shown on this update. i see the paint drying on my wall faster than the froy release by VZW/MOTO.

    Think of it this way;

    Tmobile screws up a 2.2 release, 100,000 people are effected
    Verizon screws up a 2.2 release, 3 million people are effected lol

    How is it sad? I don't see how your logic plays out. You don't get to be the top carrier by half a**ing your product. Generic was right in what he said. If it gets screwed up... MILLIONS will be affected. It's called quality control, and it's a good thing.

    Also, VZW will be rolling out their 4g LTE network this November in 30 of the country's largest metro areas.

    And FWIW, We've waited what? 2 months for this update? Are you serious?

    We got the official 2.1 back in late Mar/early Apr. The offical 2.2 hit N1 back around June. Now during that time, VZW/MOTO hopefully saw all the things that happened on the N1 that hopefully won't happen on the D1, DX or whatever DROID is on the market irregardless of carrier (VZW, SPRINT, TMOBILE) I'm sure this 2.2 worked like a champ for the most part but for whatever reason VZW held it up deploying it on their network. we'll never know the actually why other than hopefully it will be out August after 4 months of waiting. As to your other comment about 4G, who's going to benefit on that network. I doubt D1's. Probably have to upgrade handset again and go through some firmware update that will probably be another 4 or 5 months. Original D1 aren't even in talks for the next OS (gingerbread).
