    Yep but one thing I noticed is that when the phone is in the dock it no longer leaves the dock clock/weather/etc screen up the whole time. It goes into a screen saver mode with a digital date and time appearing and disappearing in various places on the screen.
    yep ,i hope there is an apk somehwere for 2.2 that takes u back to the stock 2.0 dock screen. i had it installed after the 2.1 update. this new dockscreen is a joke. who wants screensaver on a desk all day? im at work...i want to see the weather. plus when its in screensaver mode i dont get the flashing led on notifications. what a joke.

    I'll settle for the ability to turn off the screensaver and get your notifications back.

    Not sure if it will be pushed to you or not but it should be no problem at all to install it manually using the same instructions we get on this site every there is a new release.

    yeah, i actually like the desk screen when its not in screen saver mode. screen saver mode should be an option...and i cant figure out for the life of me why it doesnt give led notifications. so silly. so at work all day i have a bouncing green clock with no tell of whether or not i received a text or email, etc....????? u have to be kidding.

    its a nice option at night....but thats it.

    Is anyone else having problems with the browser? I forced 2.2 and Flash back when it was first posted here and since then sometimes when I'm scrolling, the browser will literally freak out. It will start zooming in and twitching around like it is having a seizure.

    I am also noticing that all apps and widgets on the home screen take a long time to load (5-10 seconds usually) and sometimes I can't swipe to a different screen (I have to use the little tab bullets down in the lower corners). Too many problems for me to not complain about.

    I almost forgot, the damn phone beeps when it hits 15% battery. If I'm using my phone enough to get down to 15% I sure as hell know it is at 15% and don't need an annoying honking noise. Anyone know how to turn off this notification on stock 2.2?

    So funny story today...I went in to my local VZW store today because I'm having problems with my phone. The rep asked me if I had the updates yet. I told her I downloaded and installed it myself. She said I shouldn't do that but wait for it to be sent. Something about it not being good for phone. Silly woman. Probably tells people they need an App killer too.

    Those reps are gonna be in for a shock when the first time they try to show a customer how to do a task killer only to find out they don't work in Froyo ;-)

    Hello guys, I have been trying to update my phone but have not succeded.

    I just got a brand new Motorola Droid 4 days ago. So no modifications have been made to the device.

    I have tried to do it thru my PC, placing the update.zip file on the root of the SD, and I have also done it directly thru the phone. No matter how I do it I always end up with the same message:

    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    I have tried downloading the file from different servers. And I'm not naming the file "update.zip.zip"

    Any ideas??? apreciate the help!

    Thx

    monse, go into settings/about phone and give us the build and kernal info.
    Are you positive this phone is brand new or could it possibly be a refurb?
