UPDATE: Froyo 2.2 coming to the Motorola DROID next week

UPDATE: Froyo 2.2 coming to the Motorola DROID next week
With the Motorola DROID 2 A955 coming pre-loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo and due out by mid-August, plus the flagship Motorola DROID X MB810 and HTC Droid Incredible ADR6300 expecting their 2.2 update by "late summer", many are wondering when the original Motorola DROID A855 will get some Froyo love'n. Good news! We just recieved official word from Verizon Wireless that they plan on pushing out the Android 2.2 Froyo update to the Motorola DROID A855 starting next week. Even though no exact date is given, we can guess it will be a rolling-update, as was done with the 2.1 update, with a certain amount of DROIDs receiving it each day, as to not overload the system. Of course, some of you have already been using Froyo Custom ROMs on the Motorola DROID, but this is good news for the masses who don't mess around with rooting and installing ROMs. We'll let you know when our Motorola DROID unit receives the over-the-air update to 2.2 next week.


*UPDATE*
Verizon has changed their Motorola DROID support page to reflect the Android 2.2 update. It will be Build Version FRG01B and is a 45.2MB download once its released next week.

When does the Incredible get it? I'll probably have a different phone by the time it upgrades.

Good news to hear...2.2 ROM is out for CAPTIVATE, but I hear it slows it down a little, so will just have to wait until the FALL when SAMSUNG officially releases it, or a better ROM is released.

The update will start Aug 3rd and be rolled out over several days. Found the timeframe while browsing through infomanager at work.

Good news. I rooted my DROID but went back to stock 2.1 b/c i felt like I was missin some features. Plus my once faithful bluetooth wasn't working properly, phone was gettin ridiculously hot, and my phone would go crazy when i had it plugged into my pc. Luckily official upgrade is comin but then again, my X is comin on Monday so i guess i won't get to enjoy the benefits just yet...
