    Only thing I am concerned about is it does not seem that they fixed the proximity sensor issue.

    Well Here's What i think about the update

    Flash 10.1 Beta: I understand its still in beta but it tends to be laggy and makes the Browser slower than 2.1

    Apps2Sd: Seems like it would work great but the developers have to make some changes to there apps in order for it to be supported.

    Jit Speed Boost:This is the second most talked about feature of 2.2 and its amazing how they can Boost a phones speed with just a simple software upgrade.It has taken my Droid to level not seen before.

    Market: The market is pretty much complete.It took me about 20 minutes to load all my apps back after i flashed a different rom.But with the Update All feature i can leave and they will download in the background.Amazing!

    Wifi Tether: I can only hope this makes it in the final Build but by the looks of it Verizon wont allow it.And it they do there will be a Plan for it.

    Battery Life: this one has been bad.Battery life has been horrible ever since i updated to 2.2 And i think thats between the Jit speed boost and Flash 10.1 It eats at the battery alot.This one im disappointed with.


    Over All: I give the Froyo 2.2 update a 9! it was an amazing update and included alot of features we have been looking for.Flash 10.1 was a hugh feature that really made Android stand out and also the Jit Speed Boost.

    I'm really impressed with the speed. I just installed the new bugless beast last night on my moto droid and the thing just flies. Flash also works surprisingly well, much better than I think you would ever anticipate. There's lots of other nice touches all over the place but the speed is what really stands out, and it's amazing!

    i dont think this will ever really be addressed because its such a small issues. i just tried to find the page on the motorola forums about it but something like less then .5% of droids actually have this issue.

    im sure if it were a more widespread issue it would be looked into a little more.


    personally if this is a recurring problem i would look into getting a new phone from verizon.

    Will someone please explain what I am missing? People keep saying developers need to support it, but I have no trouble moving non-system apps to sd with Titanium. I realize you can't do that from the stock app manager, but Titanium makes it irrelevant.

    Now, it doesn't seem to have any real effect (closed apps on my SD still show as active apps in ram on occasion), so is that what is meant by not being supported? Is this supposed to act like a sort of virtual ram extension or something?

    If the apps support it now that means the Developer updated the App with i believe the 2.2 Sdk.I may be wrong though.

    Am I the only one that finds this to be less fast? I am trying to run a lwp and it isn't as fast as Bugless 1.1. It is pretty snappy with a standard wallpaper though and I love the browser speed.
