    My wife just got it on my old Droid at about 9:45. I have been playing with her phone. No flash yet, wasn't a big fan of it when I was rooted though
    Flash has to be DLed, but once you do that, it works and runs flawless. I did the manual up date
    Verison: 2.2
    Build: FRG01B

    Based on some of the more recent posts on this thread, the latest OTA update is FRG01B - is that right? So, if I manually installed FRG01B a couple of weeks ago when it was posted on AC, I'm not going to get any new update?
    Anybody? Just looking for a bit of confirmation

    I had dinner with a guy last night who said something was automatically updated on his Droid. He is not a power user, so I checked and his system was upgraded to 2.2.....he had no idea what I was talking about.

    I got my OTA update Saturday AM. Went on without a hitch.

    So far, kinda disappointed with Froyo. Phone doesnt seem any faster. Web browser is def NOT overall faster. That was the thing i was looking forward most to.

    Revamped launcher is ok. Battery seems to be doing a little better even. Especially when GPS is working, so that's good.

    Everything else so far seems minor and overall neither better or worse then what 2.1 was all about.

    Maybe the Droid is a little too outdated to benefit from all the supposed under the hood improvements of Froyo.

    I believe he meant downloaded from the market. Or the APK file.


    Either or

    Anyone notice that the ringer cannot be set completely off, with the volume buttons, any longer with Froyo? It will only go as low as vibrate . The only way I see to do it now is holding the power button and choosing "Silent Mode".

    Thoughts?

    Yea - just noticing that now that you said it. Ive only had to shut phone ringer off once since update and i guess i just didnt notice it was on vibrate. Doesnt bother me too much other than the fact it doesnt make much sense. ( UI refinements that seem like a step backwards is a pet peeve ).

    I use a free app called "ring toggle" that lets me set my phone to "silent mode", among other things.

    Note: I'm not affiliated to "ring toggle" in any way, other than being a user.

    Ever since updating to 2.2, my Droid's home screen has a HUGE lag before popping up. This happens whenever I change the orientation of the screen from landscape to portrait, or vice versa, or even just unlocking the phone. Anyone else having issues with this? All I see is the wallpaper for a good 5 seconds, when on 2.1 is was extremely fast. Any suggestions? If no one else is having this issue, I guess it may be one of the widgets. Thanks.

    My understanding is that the Droid must reload all the widgets to the home screen every time you change the orientation. You can delete the widgets one by one and turn it to see which one is causing the problem, and perhaps you could move that widget to one of the other screens (Actually, I don't know if that will work because I don't know if the widgets are all loaded every time, even on the screens that don't show.)

    What! Your home screen rotates. Mine hasn't from day one with 2.1 or now with2.2. Auto rotate screen checked, works with everything else but not on home screen. Am I missing a setting?

    My home screen rotates -- always has -- with the keyboard open.

    Mine too! I thought I was the only one because I hadn't read of anyone else having the problem til now. I'm afraid one day the screen is gonna go blank and not come back. I didn't have this problem with 2.1 either. Hopefully everything will be ok.

    Mine is doing the same thing since the update. Not only that but I have had to do 2 battery pulls since the update.

    The first one cause the phone froze when I was using the keyboard. The second one because Pandora and Slacker both stopped working on my phone.

    2.2 is ticking me off.

    Just perform a factory reset. That is what fixed mine and countless others.

    No need. Your phone does it automatically!

    All your apps? In the market under downloads.

    All your SD card contents? Left untouched.

    The only thing you will miss is the texts and call log.
