    Am I the only one that hasn't gotten the 2.2 OTA yet? Have they stopped doing the OTA due to bugs or something? What's going on? Who else hasn't gotten theirs yet?

    Verizon stopped pushing the update due to a problem with it. They will fix it and start pushing the update again next week.

    Don't fret, they are still pushing the updates according to others who have posted (the timeline was supposedly 08/03 through 08/13). It took about that same length of time to push out 2.1 back in early April so this isn't a surprise.

    I also have not yet received 2.2, even though I was in the very first batch to receive 2.1 back on 03/31 in the early AM. The order is pretty much random so don't get too worked up.

    Plus, if you haven't received it or forced it yet, you may not have to put up with all of the bugs the early adopters are reportedly dealing with.

    Alot of people have not gotten it yet. In fact many of the people I work with that have droids (5 people including myself) have not yet received the update. It will get out to everyone and if you can't wait then just force it and have it here and now. :)

    None of the folks I work with have it yet.

    Or, more importantly, I *don't* have it yet!

    I've been informed that's the update is still rolling out as scheduled, from 8/3 to 8/13. If you don't want to wait, you could root or just force the update. Your call. Its important to remember though that even after the update FRG01B there will be another additional update title FRG22 which will patch the issues that FRG01B appear to be having. Bear in mind that it took the nexus one 2-3 tries to get froyo right.

    so i read the other sticky that says to get the 'fixed' update you need to have the 'first' update. vzw is going to be sending out 2 updates then, correct. I would have assumed that those who haven't gotten the first yet would just get the second, a fixed version and not need to install 2. Which is correct?

    After seeing the difficulties people are having with the first update I am not quick to push Froyo onto my phone. 2.1 works perfectly fine. I would rather have stable working edition that anything else.

    I don't think that this is true. Why would Verizon send out crappy 2.2(1) and then 2.2(2)? When they can just send out just 2.2(2) OTA for those that never got the first one?

    Trident said that you need Froyo Update 1 in order to get Froyo Update 2! No problems 2 report with a Forced Froyo Update 1 here.

    Not to be too blunt or rude, but I would just manually install it and then get the patch OTA whenever that rolls out. It's super easy and quick and you don't have to fret about constantly looking at your phone and wondering when Froyo is coming.

    Hmmm... Do I need to find a way to go back to the 2.1 or will it still see mine as needing the better upgrade?

    Why would you want to do a hard reset? Moreover, if OTA updates reset automatically, you'd have thousands of people losing data.

    I just like having a clean install when upgrading.... I dont see what data you really lose... its not like the old WM phones where you lose everything on a flash... With the Androids you just log back into Google and Facebook and its mostly all back... The 2.2 even reinstalled my apps when it was done...

    It's the things that Google doesn't save for you that you lose forever if you do a factory reset (like all of my vehicle fuel and service records that I keep in aCar). For you it might not be a big deal, but for most not getting that data back is a deal breaker. Even for those of us who are on ROM crack hahaha.

    Sorry, But "Who Cares!" You get it, when you get it. I can't believe how many get concerned about this. Cheer when you get it, not moan because you haven't yet!

    Quite a number of people are excited about getting the update. No need to put anyone down just because they want the update. Sure, they can manually update but some people aren't tech savvy or just prefer OTA for whatever reason.
