    I'm hearing a new Soak is in the works. I hope it addresses the lag.

    I got an email at 6:45 pm eastern saying:

    "...the original Droid will soon get a small software update. A limited number of owners will receive the update as part of a pre-launch “soak” test before it’s more widely released. This has become standard practice, so we can observe for a few days to make sure there are no hidden problems before wide release."

    Before anyone gets excited, this is probably only 2.2.2 which fixes the SMS receiver bug.

    All it fixes is the SMS bug that google published a fix for awhile ago. Not much but atleast Moto is still pushing updates out:)

    It will also, in all likelihood, unroot your phone. The workaround for that is to have a custom recovery installed, along with a custom rom. Their presence will block the OTA update from installing.
