    How will I know when the update is available to me? By going to "Settings/About Phone/System Updates"? Mine says 'currently up to date.' But I'm still 2.1.

    That's because the offical 2.2 update has not been released for the droid x yet once it is you will pull the update down when you check there as of now you must manually update your phone

    As of right now you must manually update the phone but good luck finding the leaked RC that hit a couple days ago. Motorola send C&D letters to everyone they saw hosting it.

    When the official update is ready it will be in the news section for manual updating, but if you don't want to do it that way you'll eventually get a notification popup on your phone saying there's an update waiting for you. Going into the settings to "call" the update only works if there's on available and you didn't get the notice because of poor signal or some other error, and if you don't do that it'll come down soon anyway.

    When is the slated date for 2.2 and, for a new Droid user, what will it offer me? Will I notice?

    When will it be here? "Soon" is the only answer anyone has.

    Will our 2.2 update come with flash 10.1 or will it be like the other update for the older droid which lacked 10.1?

    Flash would have to be licensed to be included in the update. However, once the update hits you should be able to see it in the market.

    I stress should because if there isn't an official Droid X version of it you might have to wait for it to be finalized before it appears.

    Ah ok, b/c I was under the impression that our phones would have flash 10.1, I thought was one of the selling points that verizon used for their droids vs. iphone.

    You'll still get it, you'll just have to install it manually through the Market. The Nexus 1 has it live in the market and soon the Droid 1 will have it as well. I'm running the Nexus 1 version on my Droid and it's working fine; we're just hoping the Droid 1-specific version will have hardware optimizations for the Droid 1-specific GPU and whatnot. Hopefully the Droid X version will be optimized for Droid X hardware.

    I have the leaked 2.2 on my phone now, it's not rooted and all the bloatware is on it...Will I get the offical ota when it comes out, or will I have to go back to 2.1 somehow first?

    Froyo has been running great on mine so far (touches wood)..

    You shouldn't have to. The system will see you're not running the official build and push the update to you OTA or you could install it manually.
