That doesn't mean those of us who have had issues with the update are lying.
    I know for a FACT you are NOT lying about those issues because I personally experienced them. Give the 70MB version of the update a try It worked for me . If it doesn't work for you I would be curious to see what the problem is.

    Also give the next patch in line a try. (It is very small 1.6MB indicating to me that it is a bunch of bug fixes as opposed to added features) It is also very telling that this "UPDATE" is quickly on the heels of the other one. The only times I have seen software developers do this is when they really mess something up and a lot of people notice.

    I will be installing this today to see what it fixes

    Thumbs down

    I've been away from this forum for a long time. My Droid is set up very basic and I have only a couple of apps installed. The 2.2 update has made my Droid very slow and 50 percent of the time when browsing and I click on a link nothing happens. The only way to open the link is to double tap to zoom the page and then click the link again. I'm growing tired of this and its very disappointing. What a waste...

    well i"m rooted, and my battery lasts about 4hrs, while surfing the web, using stereo bluetooth and sending instant messages also. I think that's a pretty good battery life correct? I fixed the redraw issue by using the ADW launcher and by not letting the screen rotate(apps don't rotate when I rotate the phone). I think the battery did last longer on 2.1, but now my phone is much faster than before running on 2.2.

    Slow system

    How do I download the update patch from my phone? I'm also experiencing a lot of sluggishness since the 2.2 upgrade.

    Thanks,

    4 hours sounds like poor battery life. I get almost a day with a good amount of use. Granted, I'm not rooted.

    Besides some lag and the stupid bloatware, I love everything about this update!

    I am also experiencing horrible lag, poor battery life, and lots of annoying adware.
