Flah? lol just kidding

anyway, i dont see how the update could cause hardware problems (besides those battery and processor related). Have you called tech support about it. I have heard about mic problems but that was before the froyo update. It could just be your droid.

EDIT: There's also the possibility of water damage. A tiny drop of water could have made its way.

The same thing happened to my phone, but with the first 2.2 OTA update. I called Verizon and I guess this is a known problem and there is no fix. They call it "one way audio". It is a software problem that has disabled the microphone capabilities. I was sent out a replacement phone (well more like 3, but that is a whole other story).
