[How-To] Force the Official Android 2.2 Froyo Update for the Motrola Droid (FRG01B | Update 1 of 2)

I've been here from the beginning (check my username) I've had the G1, had the OG Droid and now the Galaxy Nexus. I've fought the good fight for years, convincing many to convert from the dreaded Iphone. This post is personal to me, in the fact that it represented what was the true catalyst to android, the Droid, its mass appeal and the beginning of moding. There has never been a forum I checked more, or relied apoun more then this one. That wait from eclair to froyo was a tough one, so much so that I decided to give it a shot and do it myself. After trial and error, the thing that pulled me through was this great community and the enormous help and feedback they gave. I love android, I love what it represents and I love Phandroid and everything it encompasses, you guys have kept me entertained and informed for almost 4 years now. Thanks you for all your dedication!

When I read the contest this is absolutely the first thread that popped into my mind. The Galaxy Nexus was one of the most hyped up phones of the past year, excluding the SGSIII but this was before that existed.


Every single day I would come visit Android Forums and catch up on the latest release date rumors. The newest rumors of what we should expect and so much more. I teased my self day after day about how revolutionary and awesome this new device would be. Everyone in the thread was so interested in what was going to be the "Galaxy Nexus". These types of things excite the hell out of me and I could not wait to get my hands on one.

One very sad thing we talked about was the possibility of this device coming to Verizon. Little did we know it was planned all along. I believe we figured that information out early in the thread through.

I was showing friends leaked images, leaked specs and so much more. Like na-na-na-na when this thing comes out I'm first in line with my upgrade. What felt like the longest wait ever had finally commenced and before even going to work on release day I walked into Verizon and picked up my Galaxy Nexus. Since then I have grown to love the device more and more. I can't even imagine having another phone. Everything this thread led up to was so worth the torturous wait that we had all went through.


Now I am excited as hell for Jelly Bean to come out and make even better use of my dual-core GNex. The SGSIII is a nice phone and all but who needs all that processing power for a handheld device. My phone is super fast and now with project butter it will be so buttery smooth making everyone else sooo jealous. I also plan to pick up a Nexus 7. I really like the size and the fact that it's a nexus.


Good luck everyone!

In all my tinkering with my N1 this was one of the most frustrating. That power button on top turned my phone on all the time. This was a partial solution, and I remember being so optimistic about it working out.

I came back to this thread over and over for more than a year. Both on purpose and just through google searches.

T-Mobile Contract Loop hole

T-Mobile Contract Loop hole.

An always good reminder to check my contract! There's usually some wiggle room to help me negotiate with my carrier. It's a simple but important reminder certainly made me more careful when I signed up for my latest 2 year extension.

Thumbs up ROOTING For Dummies Guide.....the Gingerbread Edition

EVO 4G - All Things Root Rooting, ROMS, Overclocking, etc.

Internet searching on rooting brought me to this post, introduced me to Phandroid - AndroidForums.com, xda developers and so much more. This post took me over the edge from wannabe rooted to rooted and beyond. I go back to it from time to time to make sense of something I'm not sure of or what I need to do. It provided the most in-depth detail for a beginner/neophyte rooter/geek like me. It got me to looking as to what "ota" and many other terms that are used in this forum mean. I usually avoid anything titled "Dummies" (hate that series name) and prefer the term the O Reilly book series uses, "the missing manual." There is so much out there about rooting but this was for me, "the missing manual" for beginners and a real introduction to a new Android world. Thanks to ocnbrze for compiling so much information and the many other contributors who have made my venture successful. AndroidForums.com is a great community!

[ROM STABLE] Bugless Beast V0.3 Android 2.2

This is where it all started for me...with the great work of Peter Alfonso for my OG Droid. I still remember arguing with a buddy of mine over Bugless Beast vs Bugless Beauty. I stood tall for Bugless Beast and it is amazing to see it still going strong today for my Galaxy Nexus

Eris - All Things Root Guide

That has, hands down, got to be my favorite thread. The strange reason(s) behind that is, because it was that thread that brought me to AF, and I'm glad it did, but more so because that thread helped me avoid throwing my Eris out a window and jumping on it, possibly more than once. I believe that the creator of that thread, and all the creators of the respective threads listed there deserve credit for preventing my poor little Eris from taking a quick flight out of a high up window somewhere.

Let's see your "Incredible" layout (Pun Intended)

Definitely check this out!

The Incredible was the first Android phone I ever bought. I really love the open nature of the platform and this thread just shows that with creativity and hard work, a community (Phandroid) can come up with great ideas and awesome customizations for their phones.

After I read through the entire thread I was inspired to create my own layout. I got to work and after about 20 hours my layout was ready. I linked to my specific my post showing the layout and how I designed it.

Since then, I have made a couple other layouts and have been heavily involved in rooting, optimization, etc. I give all credit to Phandroid and the forums for making me take an interest!

2.3.6 Battery life sucks

I came from an iPhone 3gs to the galaxy s2 because i was really interested in Android, so I was new to the platform. I "upgraded" my s2 to the ota 2.3.6, and the battery life was terrible because of some bug, and this tread helped me identify the problem. So a bad manufacture update lead me down the wonderful road of custom roms such as Cyanogenmod.

It was a tough choice but I will choose:
http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-4g-lte/554045-user-reviews-htc-evo-4g-lte-first-impressions-7.html

I chose this thread/post because it represents a significant milestone in the evolution of Android, phandroid, and androidforums:

- This thread actually highlights rational and logical reviews of two of the greatest phones in Android history (HTC One X series VS Samsung Galaxy S III) without fanboyism. It is symbolic to me in that not only Android has matured, but also the users and their concerns. While reading you can sense the tone of genuine caring people trying to help others out.

- Previous Android phones were always debated against iPhone. Now the biggest debate is between two high end Android phones that Apple tried to ban and slow down with litigation.


I also want to note that Chris Chavez gave me the courage to root my first Android phone (HTC Evo 4G). I've been visiting phandroid for awhile but didn't learn about the vast resources androidforums would provide if it wasn't for Chris and his youtube videos (this was before he joined phandroid). Thanks dude.

Oh the good ol' days.
I was going to post this thread, but you beat me to it. Man those were good times. Instead I'll pick this one...

1st 6 of conf. #, date ordered, order status

We were going crazy looking for every bit of information we could get, the anticipation was killing us. This was my first Android phone and first smartphone in general, so it was particularly exciting. I still have it and I don't plan on selling it since it isn't worth much now and I spent $300 for it new. At the time I had no idea a phone like this would still be so useful today even when it isn't activated (MP3 player/internet/navigation etc), all my old feature phones would start to get frustrating to use after about 6 months, and I'd be dying for an upgrade, but the Incredible was a great phone.

Official EVO Rumors and Speculation thread

for me, this is where it all began. i had only been a forum member for a few months, not too active at the time and then the supersonic rumors started. this thread was my home almost immediately, i spent HOURS diving in this info and conversing with folks who quickly became forum friends. not only did this end up being my first android phone, this thread in particular started my loyalty with phandroid and the great android forums! with over 1,800 posts and 700 thanks that i have given over the years this will always be where it began for me. for people i met like billsmed who are no longer around to those like TwoSpirits and SoFlo who i still see chattin around today. this thread reached a record 14,915 PAGES of conversation. i feel like i was on nearly every single one if not i had atleast read the content. there were many controversial moments in this thread, such as the now claimed and famed "trolls", mr jackson and notorious BSOD.

at the end of the day, this is the thread that made me fall in love with this forum, this site, and has made me so loyal to this oustanding community over the years!

thanks phandroid, you're a great site and i love being here!!!!!!!

Why I want to marry my phone

This is my favorite post of all time because it mirrored my feelings at the time for my beloved Droid Incredible...the amazing device that allowed me to dump my LG Voyager and its crutch of a keyboard and officially launched me into the world of smartphones, full touchscreens, Google and Nexus...and I haven't looked back since!

Motorola Droid Guide

Although the OG doesnt have the specs of the newer phones it is still being taken care of by Devs to this day. Without this phone, and the support that went along with it, who knows if Android would have taken off like it has. The above link is not only a portal to all things Motorola Droid but also a direct gateway into the heart and soul of Android history itself.

Rooting Best Practices
Many of us root our phones.In and of itself, root only gives you access to secured parts of the phone, just like if you're using using Windows and you have to click that little Run As Administrator prompt. Basically it's a system developed a long while back that keeps the regular day to day operations from being able to have too negative an impact on the rest of the system.

The positive thing about root is everything it then allows you to do further on down the line including custom apps, configurations and even OS'.

This guide is very beneficial to those new to the world of rooting and those who want to learn.This gives them the basic precautions they should take.These are very important.Otherwise they could result in the bricking of the phone,i.e.turning of the phone from a full fledged multimedia device to an over-expensive paperweight on your table!!!!!!

HELP US HELP YOU !!! with your Problem

My entry into this contest. While this post isn't exactly active anymore, it was great see individuals helping each other out. Rather than a post which helps everybody (an issue that many people are having), for those with specific problems and cannot find a solution, it's threads like these that us amateurs need.

Hopefully threads like these where experienced users can gather and help out the ones with little problems are just as visible as threads that can help many users at once; we gotta look after the minority too! Let's bring attention to the smaller problems in order help increase everyone's enjoyment of Android

not entering the contest (have never won any sort of contest in my life, Lol)

Just wanted to add a side note about the ascend and the guide mentioned..

Dana has a good point, before the ascend I rarely saw androids being used on Miami transit that didn't cost a paycheck for most people. Even though you can't buy them new (to my knowledge) I still get pm's regarding the phone and specifically this guide (I wrote it) and respond ASAP.

For a lower income bracket the ascend was, is and, will still be, the first android many people use.
I have a ton of thank-you letters from users who were android illiterate who are no longer so nervous about roms and recovery.

Being able to create this guide, and thus the door for new users to the phan club, would not have been possible without the phandroid forums, as we all were once learning about androids on 600mhz devices at one point... the difference is the ascend was 150 and the guide is "priceless"

I am honored to have my (now mildly neglected ) work of love selected to be included in this contest.

Post your Homescreens

Phandroid has some of the best homescreens. Most of the time when you look at a thread like this they are FILLED with hideousness, not this one.

So much inspiration.

For my entry into the contest my favorite post is:

Verizon will not honor grandfathered unlimited data if you upgrade this summer onward

The reason why this is my favorite post is because I have an old unlimited data plan, and if it wasn't for this post I would have never known about what Verizon has in stored. Verizon is historically is not the best when comes to communicating new changes, so this give me some good food for thought on whether I wanted to continue my service or if I wanted to an upgrade.

It must be this thread. I've never seen a forum thread grow so huge. Insane. I like it because it's a feat of modern human digital engineering.

Known issues with the Galaxy Nexus

I followed that thread religiously because I heavily considered the Galaxy Nexus as my next Android. The reports helped me to make a (relatively) educated decision.

I've gotta give the nod to this one because it has an abundance of nonsense, comedy, and mind-numbing, time wasting clips. It's well worth spending some time viewing.

Good luck to all!

SCOOP: Nexus One Dock hits the FCC

That thread is my favorite because it brought me ten seconds of fame. I got cited over at BGR as well as Phandroid.

how do you manage to sleep with your phone?

HTC Droid Incredible was my first smartphone (day one purchase, used for 2 years)... I was completely enthralled by the device -- the speed, the power, the screen! Guess you could say I fell in love with it!

Way back when I first read the subject line "How do you manage to sleep with your phone" many lols were had and for some reason, I heard Chef (from South Park) singing "Gonna lay you down by the fire..." Still brings me a chuckle.

Default My Favorite Thread

For me this is the thread that started it all. This was my first real foray into the world of android modding, themeing, rooting, and romming!

Sure it was a janky little phone, certainly not a Nexus One, but wow what a community. Those dev's got the utmost that phone was capable of, and made it do things it shouldn't have.

New member, but from what I've seen from other members links, I am going to find the site VERY useful once I get a Nexus 7.

I've chose the following thread:

Definitive android's folder structure

I'm well versed in the Apple ecosystem, I yearn for the good old Dos days where if you don't know where to look for something you can't use the device at all.

So this thread is great for those familiar with other OS directory structures but who are new to Android.

Whether I win or not, I've bookmarked that link and a few others some other user's have posted and look forward to a lot of reading I'll be doing here.

Angry Birds Seasons Progress

This was a great thread to be a part of for the very first Christmas Season of Angry Birds Seasons. The game went on for 25 days and all those involved in the thread seemed to have fun helping each other out.

Google Nexus 7 NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core

Who wouldnt like a brand new device first to run Jelly Bean, a tablet at that. I love the new fully redesigned theme of Jelly Bean on a tablet, and would love to be able to get it myself. Just discussing this gets me excited(:
