Manually install FRG22D onto your DROID and get Flash Player 10.1
If you're sick and tired of waiting for the FRG22D OTA update to reach your Motorola DROID, you can do the installation by hand and come away with a device that runs Flash Player 10.1. First, download the file FRG22D from FRG01B from Google. Copy the file to the root directory of your micro SD card and name it update.zip. Power off your phone and then re-start it while holding down the "X" key on the physical keyboard. This boots the phone up to recovery mode.

When you see the /!\ symbol, press the volume control and the camera key together to display the recovery options. Using the D-pad (finally, a use for the eye sore!) navigate to "apply sdcard:update.zip" and select it. When you see "Install from sdcard complete", select "reboot system now". Go to the Android Market and install Flash Player 10.1.

That's all there is to it. We had reported the other day that Verizon was to send out the OTA update needed for the DROID to receive FRG22D, but so far most DROID owners have received nothing from Big Red. If you do the update by hand, let us know how it went and how Flash is working on your phone.
