    how come when 2.1 came out we could do a manual update without root and now all the droid 2.2 builds you have to be rooted to update to and all the builds that are being posted have root i wish someone would post the real version without root

    Because Froyo for the Droid hasn't been officially released yet.

    You could do the manual update to 2.1 because Moto/Verizon had released the update. The 2.2 official update has not been officially released yet. The version leaked by motorola may not be the final, I don't know.

    its because the version that has leaked out is directly from google (i.e. the bulid running on the nexus one), where as the official froyo update for droid that will be pushed OTA still needs to be put through approval by motorola/verizon.

    As long as the leaked rom is rooted, you won't be stuck with anything.

    im somewhat surprised it leaked so quickly. does anybody know if they deleted the little identifier watermark that can trace the leak back to the person who leaked it? if it wasn't deleted i would hate to be that guy haha
