Motorola DROID owners to get FRG22D update on Tuesday, will allow Flash Player 10.1 to install
The day that many Motorola DROID owners have been waiting for should be here Tuesday when Verizon sends out an OTA upgrade (FRG22D) to owners of the original DROID. Once the software has been installed on the phone, users will be able to download the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 from the Android Market. After that occurs, the handset will be able to show Flash animation and video where previously it rendered a blank box or a warning to download Flash.

As we reported, Verizon had decided to send the FRG01B build of Android 2.2 to owners of the 2009 Time Magazine Gadget of the Year last week, and follow that up with the upgrade being sent out tomorrow. A trip to to the Android Market will be the final step necessary to install the actual Flash Player, which is similar to the steps taken by Nexus One owners to allow Flash to play on that device.

Later this summer, the supersized Motorola DROID X is expected to receive the Froyo upgrade while the Motorola DROID 2 was recently launched as the first handset to come with Android 2.2 and Flash Player 10.1 out-of-the-box.

I did a master reset on mine and it cleared up all of my issues. A few apps that still aren't working the way they should but updates will fox those soon enough.

I rooted and Flashed mine to do Adobe Flash...Its actually pretty useful, I was looking for houses and some of them have virtual tours, I was able to take advantage of that with Adobe Flash 10.1. Im extremely satisfied with my Droid Inc.

I just got it, it didn't auto-popup. I went into settings and selected System Update. I took a while to download, and load was slow after the first reboot. But it's working fine, I see no difference from frb01.

I just got the update notification, and I clicked okay to begin. It seemed to take forever, and finally I got impatient and took my battery out. Now my phone won't start. I'm not sure why? Do I need to put the battery back in for it to work? Why are these things so difficult to use!!

This almost seems like the disaster of tryin to force the 2.1 update on the DROID Eris which was a catastrophe...apparently like Froyo on the original DROID. Seems like the hardware can't handle what the software, but hey i don't have that problem.

23. frankthetank775 unregistered

Has anyone received this or os this just a cruel joke. The 2009 Gadet of the year is begining ro be the crappiest gadget of 2010. With the current update.

30. derp unregistered

ive been saying that since the phone was first released and have yet to be proven wrong.
