is it a bad sign that my phone says "your system is currently up to date." when i check manually? Or will it eventually show up?

You just have to wait patiently! As I am trying to do, waiting for the next update to get flash!

I hate having to wait on every update. There wouldn't be "network overload" as they fear if they would allow users to download the update via internet, like iPhone does on iTunes. One time I got an update but my wife had to wait nearly a week before she got hers. This is poor practice. The only thing that Froyo 2.2 changed on my Droid was sluggish web browsing, made YouTube very glitchy, made my device slower. I used to brag about my Droid to my iPhone friends but I can't really do that anymore. The only thing they complain about is AT&T's network, thats all.

When you guys get it, can you report your experience. I've been surfing the web without Flash for...well I've never had Flash on my phone and I've never felt like I was missing anything other than not playing some movies. I feel like we've wanted flash for so long, but that a lot of popular sites have moved away from it in their main content...

From what I understand if you already have 2.2 on the phone then you are capable of downloading Flash from the Market once it becomes available... I have not done this myself since I have the X but that's my impression of the whole process.

Did my 2nd 2.2 update last night (FRG22D, first 2.2 was FRG01B). I did this manually - file was only 1.6MB. When you get the FRG22D update, you will then be able to download Adobe Flash Player 10.1 (10.1.92.8 to be precise) from the Marketplace. The file is big - 12.52MB and there is no option to move this install to your SD card. Peformance wise, Flash is great - on the full CNN website, the videos are pretty good, hardly any stutter and that is only on 3G. As for the overall performance of the phone with this 2nd 2.2 update, I cannot tell yet if it's better than the first or not.
