    Weirdest thing just happened with my Froyo update. Everything was working fine with the exception of my "quick task contacts". Then EVERYTHING went to crap. My phone was slow as sh!t dipped in molasses. I uninstalled an app then reinstalled it. It took 20 minutes to reinstall. I powered down then powered up my phone. That ALSO took over 20 minutes. It seemed like another update was being pushed. I was going to do a battery pull, but decided to wait. FINALLY it rebooted. everything seemed to be back at lightening speed. And now my "contacts quick task" even works flawlessly when before, it didn't work hardly at all (after original froyo update last night). I uninstalled and reinstalled the same app that previously took 20 minutes and it took no more than 15 seconds this time. I think Motorola snuck in another update under the radar. I was ready to go back to 2.1! Keep in mind that I was never rooted and I did SEVERAL battery pulls and SEVERAL restargs simce the official update.

    After the flash, it bogs down for a bit, kinda akin to running a fsck on all file systems.

    Just let it do it's thing, wait a little bit and then you'll see the magic. There is no "secret second update".

    Totally correct, anyone going to 2.2 let the update do its thing then let it do its thing for about 20 minutes.

    also give the phone about a week for the Battery to get into a groove, it gets better and better, my battery life has improved significantly after the first week of running the 2.2 leak, its pretty amazing how long the battery lasts now with heavy use.
