Current Source OS is Froyo 2.2.1
Current build for the Motorola Droid is FRG22D
Current build for the Nexus One is FRG83

I think my next ROM is just going to be build ZZZ99Z and let's see someone top that!
this...

Your phone can run 2.2.1, but not FRG83. FRG83 is a nexus one build, just as FRG22D is a droid build. FRG22D contains moto's latest proprietary files (the files that make your droid a droid) and FRG83 contains google's latest proprietary for the N1.

I built 2.2.1 apps from source for my Droid X blurless rom, but it doesn't mean I'm running FRG83 parts, it means i'm using the latest google updated apps
