    Can someone please help?
    I'm wondering and I swear if you all haven't I dunno you must have alot of patience but I hate this ****.. when apps update you always gotta go into the list and download all of them 1 by 1..

    IS THERE AN APP THAT AUTOMATICALLY UPDATES YOUR APPS?
    IF NOT ****ING DESIGN ONE!!

    when 2.2 comes it will allow you to do an "update all"

    be patient...

    It depends on what you want on your phone. If you're curious if the 2.2 update is enough, either wait for the push to your phone and then root your phone afterward if it wasn't enough, or install manually and do the same thing. If, however, you're pretty sure you're going to root anyway, just root now.

    On a side note, FroYo is 2.2. You don't need to keep calling it both names; one is sufficient.

    I didn't name that thread, but it'll tell you everything I can and probably more.

    As for the flashlight, have you tried Tesla? It was just updated tonight. I'm totally unfamiliar with the Incredible and what you can do after you've rooted -- for example, I don't know if there's an alternate recovery image so you can install custom ROMs or kernels. I'm a Droid 1 user and since I'm unemployed and broke to boot, I have to wait till my upgrade is available before I can change phones -- and so far I haven't seen one I want over this beast! :D

    Kinda back on topic but to the OP, not only does Froyo allow you to "update all", but you can also set your apps to be auto updating (and I've discovered I actually dislike that feature because I like seeing the release notes to see what changes were made).

    +1. Sorry for the hijack and my contributing to it. :)

    Not only the changes, but the new permissions it requests... though I've seen that apps that request new permissions tend to have a "manual update required" tag and don't auto-update.
