    Got this text earlier today:

    "Free VZW Msg. Your Droid was sent the Android 2.2 software update including Adobe Flash 10.1. Click for more info: http://vzw.com/droidupdate"

    Interesting that they send this out now when apparently the roll out ended Sept 4th, and I got the update almost 2 weeks ago.

    I got one too, but thought I already got it over a week ago! Is this a different update, or might it fix some problems with the other one?

    If you are rooted and get this same text (I just got it 6pm) what do you do? Just ignore it? I had not seen this before

    I got it today too and am rooted (and never got either 2.2 OTA update) so I'm just laughing. Since the text is just a notification, I'd say its pretty safe to ignore.

    I got both a text and an email. I manually installed Froyo and the phone says it's up to date.

    I got the text today even though I did a manual clean install of FRG22D a couple of days ago.

    Got the text, no email. Rooted and currently running Sapphire 1.1.1. Thought it was odd, but it woke me up in the 'middle of the night' for me, so I deleted it and went back to sleep. :)

    I just got my Droid X from Verizon a few days ago, it says 2.1 update 1; I tried doing an update and it said there were none.

    I intend to root the phone so I can use the hotspot feature (as soon as I finish figuring it all out); any suggestion - should I try to get the 2.2 update from Verizon first?

    thanks,

    Umm, I don't think the 2.2 update is out yet. The update they are talking about in this thread is the official 2.2 for Motorola Droid 1. Trust me, if you read this forum, you will def know when they start rolling out official 2.2 for Droid X.

    Got the txt, then the email. I don't want to try it for fear I'll muck up my phone. Rooted on 2.2 already (Lithium Mod.... WOOOO!!).
