    About to install...

    Edit: Downloaded file from the Google link, installed without a hitch. So far so good.

    Well, the phone runs a hellova lot smoother after this update than it did after the first 2.2 update. I had to reboot a few times after the first update to get the phone feeling "smooth" again.

    So far it feels nice and snappy (I use LauncherPro). I'm more pleased with this FRG22D update than I was with FRG01B, initially.

    did you just install right over, or did you do the whole wipe and delete data and cache as well?

    doing it is no biggie... the point of doing it, if you already have rooted FRG01B is the quesiton. no noticable benefits, no thanks. I have a stable system, so going to let it ride unless something great that comes from it is noted. which I do not expect.

    ps - I have had flash for weeks and had the final 10.1 last week :)

    I wonder if it will help with the wifi issues some of us are having.

    wifi is so key, one would think it would get more mention then the Flash mention and thus rolled into something as vague as "security patches and bug fixes". So I would think not.

    But wouldn't that issue fall under "bug"?

    well sure it could.. but again, they went out of the way to mention Flash, and didn't mention something s valuable as "wifi fix" - just saying I find that highly suspect.
    and to further make my point, read the comments.. no mention of wifi in like 1000 comments.

    Also, just FYI if someone comes across this searching FRG22D since root content and threads get mixed in even in this not root area...

    this is for NOT rooted users. It says "*NOTE 2* - There is a chance you will lose root should you update to this from FRG01B. While the update file is only 1.6MB, it sounds like it is still capable of breaking root. Avoid for now if you wish to stay rooted." (and read the comments). So if you use this link above, your going to loose your root. if your not rooted and/or do not care about losing your root, use this above manual update.

    now if you are rooted and want to keep it that way, for now, there is a deodexed and ROOTED version of FRG22D available from P3 elsewhere in the root section. so IF you want FRG22D and you want to KEEP root do not do this download above and do find the deodexed FRG22D by P3.

    I'm not sure what type of wi-fi problems some of you are having, but I was having wi-fi problems under 2.0.1, 2.1, and 2.2 (the first release). The problem was that the phone would connect to the router and work just fine for a while, but at some point I would not have an internet connection anymore even though the phone was still connected to the router. It was almost as if the phone had lost an IP address or something of that nature. Long story short, I got sick of trying to find fixes for this issue with no luck so I decided to swap my router (TreadNet wireless-N emitting G signals only) with my parents router (Netgear wireless-G) and since then I haven't had any issues. So if you are having wi-fi issues, I suggest you try out a different router and see if you have any luck

    just an update, besides the known Flash 10.1 provided in the market, some of the other "bug and security fixes" I have read about are.

    1. the ability for Exchange admins to enforce security settings
    2. kills root
    3. kills exploit used by Easy Root

    This is getting routine now. Downloaded the files from the google servers (the other megadownload was temporarily unavailable). Renamed the file to update.zip and pretended I was doing the same update I did with the first 2.2b update. It went smoothly, no problems. Everything seems to be going fine.

    It took me about three tries to complete the download of Flash 10.1 from the market but I have finally loaded it. So far everything is going fine. :)

    While I've loaded Astro I didn't need to use it. Once I mounted the USB I could use Windows Explorer to copy the file from my PC Download directory to the root ("\") of the SD card of my phone. Then Unmount and turn off the phone.
