    They had this to say if you dig through the links...

    Seriously? You would have thought all of those things would have been worked out before they even pushed an OTA update to one person. So I guess this means stock Froyo is probably a long ways off now if they are fighting about rights and royalties. I don't know if I believe this rumor.

    So what does this mean for the Droid 2 that is launching with 2.2? So far all of the adds that have been put out talk about Flash support. Flash-Lite for all?

    It seems ridiculous to pull an update just because there is a conflict with an add-on. They still could've released the update and blocked access to the Flash extension. I'm going to have to completely disagree with not continuing Froyo for Droid. I mean, it's already out for other devices.

    On another note, this doesn't affect me because I've been rooted since the dawn of time - not really, but since really close to launch.

    I have to agree with you on this one. It seems a hugely bogus reason to delay and possibly cancel the update. I know it's the biggest selling point of Froyo, however there are plenty of other enhancements that we're all looking forward to. I personally am looking forward to the bluetooth voice dialing. http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/moto_droid.pdf
    Follow that link to see all the bennies Verizon is claiming froyo will bring to the Droid.

    well as reported by another poster, motorola has pulled their support page for the 2.2 update. not a good sign for the frg builds coming any time soon.

    Probably having trouble fixing some of the issues. I wouldn't sweat it, they'll send out an update eventually. If not, there are still 2.2 mirrors out there. I have it installed on my phone already, works great.

    Rumor is Droid X will get Gingerbread before we get Froyo.

    Lies. Gingerbread won't be out til around October, or even November. I'm sure that we will get Froyo before this month ends.
