Froyo update starts to trickle down to the one and only original DROID

Froyo update starts to trickle down to the one and only original DROID
We've been tipped that Verizon's original Motorola DROID is starting to get an Android 2.2 update over the air, ahead of the rumored August 12th date. This may not be the swan song update for the current most popular Android device, since Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) probably won't have strict hardware requirements that the DROID can't fulfill.  

Unfortunately, users are reporting that this update doesn't include Flash Player 10.1, but it should be coming soon. Mobile hotspot is also not present, so if you want these here and now, you will have to root the device.

I received my update OTA today. Build# FRG01B. I understand that Flash Player 10.1 will be available in the Marketplace on 8/18. I don't know how functional it is, but I now have a "Tethering" option for USB tethering in Settings-> Wireless & network settings.

You can get flash on the Droid if you download the apk files from the internet and then move it to your phone and install. I did it and it works well.
