Second Froyo update coming to original DROID says Verizon

Second Froyo update coming to original DROID says Verizon
Earlier this month, we reported that Verizon had halted the original dissemination of the FRG01B build of Android 2.2 in order to send out a later version titled FRG22. But when the first servings of Froyo were handed out to DROID owners this week, it was the first build that was being sent out. The reason for this was all made clear by an e-mail that Verizon sent out to its business customers. According to the message, the carrier plans on following up this OTA update with a second one that will allow DROID users to download the Adobe Flash Player once it is available in the Android Market. Speculation is that the first round of upgrades will be completed by the 18th of this month.

I actually work for Verizon and none of us have received the update either, I have the X but three people here have Droids and my brother has my old one... I've seen two customers today who have already received the update so it's definitely out just not available to everyone yet. It really doesn't seem a whole lot different to be honest...

the update will be running from 8/11 to 8/21 - so just be patient.

I did the manual update for my wifes phone, and still after using the incredible, it didn't seem nearly as fast. I know it doesn't have 1ghz but it seemed fast when I first got it.

You don't want it until the bugs are all fixed.

If you did the ligit update from Verizon go to a store and let them know, they will order you a replacment device, I'd lie to them and tell them it was a ligit update, I am having issues with my droid after I got the ligit update from VZW.

hey verizon hater, if you got the correct update that bricked the phone it doesn't void the original warranty, only physical damage, water damage, and rooted software voids it, if its rooted s/w you can just take to store to have correct s/w installed.

Verizons Droid Fourms are littered with complaints that the first 2.2 build is killing phones. I hope VZW plans on fixing what should have not been let out to the public.

This is a known issue that VZW is addressing. If you stop by the store there's a quick software patch available that will fix the issue.
