Actually each new version of Android has to be modified specifically for each phone. You can't load Android 2.2 for the Droid X onto any android phone. There are hardware differences that must be programmed specifically for. Drivers sometimes must be modified to accomodate new system services.

If it was that simple all you would have to do is download the source code yourself, compile it, and install it on your phone. You wouldn't have to wait for the OTA update. And we would have all had Andoid 2.2 the day after Google released it.
