    Yeah, I agree. Its becoming a little annoying but I think id rather wait. If I don't get it in a few days ill probably manually update it.

    I just wanted to let you guys know that according to someone in the Motorola Droid Sub Forum, all of Trident's Download Mirrors are getting shut down by Google due to DCMA Copy Right Violations, so if you are going to download the OTA Update 1 of 2, you better do it soon!

    I'm not sure it's worth forcing this time around. Might as well wait for update 2 to come around and avoid some potentially severe bugs.

    I am glad I waited, not that desperate for flash access right now which I assume is the main reason people want this release.

    they are not going to push it out until the sell the droid 2, otherwise it would risk their sales, verizon is GREEDY, they have it, but want to sell the new one. I have been using Tridents since his post, I have absoutley NO ISSUES at all with my phone. I did the download through the computer. I have no teather issue as I use PDA Net, and no speed issues. Some are experiencing issues, personally after reading all the forums I believe its what you have on the phone that causes issues, i.e. apps and stuff. I only have Touchdown because of my exchange server, a Wi Fi program, and Pda Net, I dont have any network stack issues and browse all day. You will NOT get this update until the greedy hogs at Verizon make their money off the droid 2. Bet your *ss on that one, it would kill the sales. There going to put the phone for sale in a week or so with 2.2 on it but wont release the update saying its buggy... ya right.

    Sure....

    Ya know that update you installed from trident's post? That came from verizon. They have already released the update OTA. There have been mixed rumors as to whether or not they totally halted the ota updates. Some people are apparently still receiving it OTA.

    Either way they always do big updates the same way. Start with a small group, see if bugs arise, then continue pushing it to larger and larger groups. If a bug does show up, at least you can catch it before the whole user base gets it, and effectively minimized damage control.

    There is no grand conspiracy theory. A bug was revealed and they're fixing it. It happens.

    What's up everybody, I'm new to this forum and the whole technological get down. I don't want to presume if the apps are causing problems or Froyo, but I've manually downloaded Froyo from Tridents also. My Droid seem a bit slower, scrolling is slightly jerky, and certaind apps are not functioning like before. I regret doing it. That's just my opinion. If any any body has information or instructions on downgrading back to 2.1, please post it. Emailed Trident, but yet to receive a responce. Thank you kindly.

    You know I have to say that this is one downside to Android. You have people getting updates before others. I understand why Verizon does it but they shouldn't. They basically use people's phones as test units to see if bugs arise. That to me tells me they're not doing enough in house testing or rushing to get updates out, which IMHO is a bad bad business practice.

    Hi...I'm new here...and not really tech savvy. I too have not received the ota update. I'm not sure what, if any pattern there is for the rollout. I received the 2.1 update fairly quickly after it was released, however 2.2 has taken much longer. Oh well.

    Droid is still being rolled out until the 18th I believe, so you'll get it by then.

    Sadly it doesn't work like that. It isn't just an android thing. If any device with any os needs a major update, they'll roll it out in batches. And they should do it in batches, to do otherwise would be stupid. And it's not bad business practices, it's actually good. You can only catch so much with in house testing. You can't simulate every single scenario that might occur out in the wild. You have to do reasonable testing to the point of the likelihood of serious bugs being very small. Then you have to test it outside the lab. Do it all at once, and if a bug shows up unexpectedly, you have millions of customers with potentially catastrophic bugs instead of only about ten thousand.

    The way you want them to do it would be impractical on almost every level.
