That's total B.S.! We already have pre release versions on the Droid for rooted droids. Now, wether it'll go higher than 2.2(froyo) is another story. Do you have a link to the article?

I got one up date about two months after I got my Droid, is this a second update? I'm not sure what version I'm running right now. How can you tell? And if this is something new, how does one download it on the phone? Thanks.

Go to menu> settings> about phone. If. Your running stock, your more than likely running 2.1update1. And the phone will automatically download it..

Yup - but since most of us can OC to that speed, it should not be too difficult to get a bootleg version of Gingerbread on our phones.

Thank you. Root is not for everyone and not everyone roots so for about 95% of all droid owners root means nothing. Also the grammar in that article is beyond poor. I would not trust it lol. Although if Verizon said sorry no 2.2 for droid but we will give you a new Droid x lol then maybe! (Never happening lol)

Even if VZW said they'll give me an X for my DROID, I'd look at them, laugh in their faces...and then, quietly ask "Do I get to keep my DROID?"

If they said yes, I'd laugh maniacally as I sold the X on eBay and continued to use my DROID....

If they said no, I'd look them right in the eyes and say "You can take my DROID from my cold, stiff fingers, tyvm!" Oh, and then I'd (of course) laugh maniacally.

Since most 2.2 ROMs for the Droid are based on leaked software from Motorola specifically designed for the Droid, I think you can safely say that whatever you read is wrong.

Droid will get at least 2.2. Rooted Droids will probably get whatever latest Android release there is for a long time to come.

The 1ghz is a suggested minimum not a true minimum. It won't matter anyway; with custom roms, the Droid will probably have 3.0 before most phones. The Droid had 2.2 before the official release on the Nexus 1.

I was debating whether or not to root for a long time. About two months ago, I decided I would root after 2.2 came out. Well, I got sick of waiting on Verizon to get off their butt and send us the OTA and I rooted and went to 2.2 last week. The whole process took about 30 mins, (counting time for apps to automatically redownload). I can honestly say, in hindsight, why did I wait. It's a simple process, everything works, and you get what they have been promising.

As far as overclocking goes, this processor is rated for 1Ghz from the factory. Motorola is underclocking it for better battery life and to run a little cooler. If I use it for a while, it gets a little warm, but nothing that even comes close to warranting a concern. Just root and be done with it. Run and 800Mhz to 1Ghz kernel on it, install flash, and fall in love with your phone all over again.

BuglessBeast v.4, comes wth 800 Mhz kernel by default, so you don't have to mess with anything else and it runs smooth. Install flash, and be happy.

(I'm running 1Ghz kernel, just for the hell of it, on 800, never even felt it warm up at all)

I can;t decide. Looks like I have to root first so following those directions I have to download some silly windows app and drivers so I need to download a trial or windows and setup a virtual machine to run it under. All I really need is adobe flash.

What OS are you running? You can root from Windows or from Linux. There is no path to root from Mac.

Ok, I didn;t see rooting from linux instructions in the forum and did a google search and found one that had steps to go back to a 2.01 rooted then upgrade to 2.1, then 2.2, seemed like a lot of steps to me. I'll search some more.

YOu don't have to go back to 2.01 first.

http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/82742-all-new-guide-all-things-root-related-currently-under-construction.html

I followed the 3rd post down. If you use that .sbf, you will stay at 2.1, there is absolutely NO reason to go back to 2.01 first, unless you like doing extra work.

So when I googled for how to root from linux I find that it thinks I have to go back to 2.01 for some straneg reason.

Head over to the root section of the forums to get more clear answers, but you shouldn't have too. If you are flashing an .sbf file you can use that same 2.1 file in that thread I listed.

I've been thinking the same thing for several days, pretty much since it was first posted. All the current 2.2 ROMs are based on builds made at Motorola for the Droid so it's ridiculous to think it won't get 2.2. Blame everyone who keeps bumping it to the first page

You must be rooted AND running a 2.2 Froyo ROM to run flash. Flash will not run on anything but 2.2 and higher. If you are running a 2.2 Foryo ROM, you will be able to find flash in the market.

I rooted last night, downloaded sbf_flash and made it executable then ./sbf_flash SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf power on the phone holding down the camera and volume down and it booted and flashed that. Then get the update.zip from update.zip and put it on the sd card, power off and power on while holding down x and installed that. That root flash came from the quoted text in the root thread post #3 http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/82742-all-new-guide-all-things-root-related-currently-under-construction.html#post780720

Seems odd that you are not able to find it in the market. Well, at least you have a link for it now.

I'm on 2.2 FRG01 by Pete now with Flash 10.1. Flash videos work but the video stutters a bit.

Even when Gingerbread is released, I bet even money that a dev out there is going to take the AOSP and compile it specifically for the DROID, including an OC kernel so that Gingerbread will work.

Have patience, young grasshoppers - FroYo is coming to the DROID.

Yes, it is. If it wasn't, there wouldn't be any of the 4-5 different RC releases for rooted users. Having said that, I'm not worried about it since I've had it for almost 2 months now .

If you are rooted, you shouldn't be worried about anything. The G1, which is almost two years old now, has 2.2. Go look up the specs on the G1 and, again, remember it has 2.2. A ROM, of course, but 2.2 nonetheless.

By owning a Droid, you own a "tier-one" Google phone which means updates should be out, lickety-split and with no delay on Google's behalf. VZW is run by morons so they constantly bring own their infrastructure when they push out 10MB updates to 10 million people at once.

What I'm saying is the Droid has another year of being able to handle newer firmware. It probably won't be the official release, since the specs of 3.0 kinda cut off before the Droid can get in, but if the ROM is modified to allow the non-1Ghz CPU to use 3.0, I think the Droid will be fine.

If not, there will always be the ROM scene to help out.
