Froyo update for Motorola DROID delayed until August 12th?
Last week, we reported that Verizon had expected to send the Android 2.2 upgrade to users of the first-gen Motorola DROID. Now, a week later,plans have changed. It now appears that the upgrade will take place on August 12th, the rumored launch date of the DROID 2. Verizon has decided to go with a newer build of the OS which explains the delay. Instead of build FRG01B, DROID owners are supposedly going to receive FRG22. There is some speculation that the first build has had some bugs, including one that has been causing some problems with Pandora.

Some of those who received the download as a test subject have reported  receiving a 1.6MB patch that replaces the FRG01B build with the newer one. Considering that the DROID 2 is expected to launch with Froyo under the hood, it would be unusual for the original DROID to receive the new OS after the sequel does, especially since the original DROID runs on stock Android without the light version of MotoBLUR that is on the DROID 2.
