    cause it ain't special. as I see it, I am going pass. generic "bug fixes" and "exchange server" improvements don't mean much to me when I got a stable ROM.

    I was thinking the same thing; if there aren't any outstanding improvements, I'm happy with the UD 8 eXtreme ROM.

    Just updated from FRG22D with no issues, running fine so far. Linpack at 1ghz is the same as 22 , ~14MFLOPS in my case. I always like to run the newest one out anyways. Thanks for the link.

    Honestly, I installed it for the exchange server fixes and it has helped that greatly. I am looking forward to a ROM based off of this. I was having some issues with exchange and this has definitely fixed that.

    I was constantly getting the "security must be renewed" errors in exchange, it would drive me nuts. That has stopped with this update, which was a huge benefit

    Thanks.
    I was hoping you would report it resolving the issue with self-signed certificates.
    I have taken my Droid back to 2.1.1 so I can access my corp e-mail and schedule.....certificate-required.

    Everything else worked fine for me....but the boss was pissed that he had to allow me to access them without a certificate. Going back got him off my back.

    If Windows 7 had launched on Verizon I would have jumped the Android-ship immediately.
    I bet they will not have these issues. Telephone and Exchange support are the most important things my phone does for me......the rest is fluff.

    I do believe there was a 2.2.1 (FRG83) ROM out there that I used once for the Droid. It didn't run well on my phone at all. It was by a user named "SnkBitten", I believe.

    It's been mentioned in the thread that it's probably because if you have anything but FRG22D listed there, Verizon will try to push the OTA to you. The fact that the Android version is 2.2.1 and not just 2.2 proves that it has to be FRG83 and not FRG22D; FRG22D was still 2.2.

    well kind of.. IF this was in fact pushed OTA, and you had one of the patches in place that blocks the OTA reminders, you would not have gotten an OTA notice. I am on FRG01B, 2 "updates" old, and I got no OTA notice because of this fact & assuming it was even an OTA to begin with, which I am not 100% sure it was (?).

    for anyone unsure of what they have, you could always go to settings > about phone and look see what Android Version and Build Number are listed
