    The best explanation I've read:

    Written by Martin030908
    Android was designed from the ground up as an operating system (OS) for mobile devices. Its built-in application and memory-management systems were engineered with battery life as one of the most critical concerns.
    The Android OS does not work like a desktop operating system. On a desktop OS, like Windows, Mac OS X, or Ubuntu Linux, the user is responsible for closing programs in order to keep a reasonable amount of memory available. On Android, this is not the case. The OS itself automatically removes programs from memory as memory is needed. The OS may also preload applications into memory which it thinks might soon be needed.
    Having lots of available empty memory is not a good thing. It takes the same amount of power to hold "nothing" in memory as it does to hold actual data. So, like every other operating system in use today, Android does its best to keep as much important/likely-to-be-used information in memory as possible.
    As such, using a task manager/killer to constantly clear memory by killing apps is strongly NOT RECOMMENDED. Generally speaking, you should only "End" applications if you see one which is not working correctly.
    -Very cool explanation. Thanks!

    So how come my Droid runs much faster (menus, games, etc.) when I use my ATK widget to close programs and "free" appx. 60Mb of memory - if holding empty memory slows down the phone as much as that memory being used by programs? Also, I've noticed less battery drain when I use ATK to clear programs prior to putting the phone into standby.

    Are you saying that my Droid would run faster still if ATK wasn't installed? Does it override the Droid's stock management efficiency?

    No it just fights with it. 2.2 opens something ATK closes it and around ane around they go, pulling the battery down with them. Chris

    -Gotcha. I'll uninstall ATK and see how things run. Thanks for the clarification.

    Well, here's a quick update and another problem! Now it seems that when I get a text (with the sound alert on) it stops the music, then after I swipe to unlock it starts the music again, although it starts the song playing all over again. An improvement, but I can only listen to Ace Of Base's "All That She Wants" so many times in a row lol...But here's another HUGE problem...was talking to my mother on the phone and I got a text while on the phone with her and then her sound dropped out! And it happened again later! So freaking annoying.

    Thumbs down Droid 2.2

    I would like to know if there is a way to reverse the update to 2.2? I have way too many problems with it and want to go back to the original version.

    I recommend doing a factory reset if you are having issues with it.

    Some specifics about how you actually performed the update, what state your phone was in before the update and what problems you are actually having would allow us to provide some insight and suggestions as to fixes other options.

    Failing that, +1 to the Factory Reset.
    While understanding "How" may get the job done, understanding "Why" will get the job done properly.

    You find the link for it with your Droid, press on the link and do the install.

    It's simple.

    Flash_v10.1.92.8.apk

    froyo issues fixed

    I have been having multiple issues since updating (manually) to froyo. I had issues with wi-fi,pandora,weather bug,slow screens , ect..... so last night I took my droid back to 2.01stock. I had 2.1 on my sd card ready to update when I noticed that 2.2 was already halfway downloaded(47.6 mb file). I let it go through on its own and what a difference.

    I don't know if its because I skipped 2.1 all together or if its because I let the ota go through but MY phone works so much better. If any of you are still having issues,its worth a try.

    More then likely if you would have done a factory data reset on your Droid before returning to 2.0.1 you'd have got the same results.
