    Do we know what the "updates" are? Some are relatively obvious, some not so much. Can someone point me in the right direction to show a listing, as such, of what they updated?

    TIA!

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm on 2.2 already. Didn't think to search for vids, just hit google looking for info. Found a couple of vids. Thanks for the idea.

    The difference is that we manaually updated to the "leaked" 2.2 (I'm still convinced that we're being used as beta testers, and I'm ok with that.) The OTA version isn't due for a couple of weeks.

    i figured it was something like that. I had a winmo 6.5 before upgrading to dx and we used to run those cooked roms too. But i got to say that this is the first time i haven't felt the need to break into it.

    Froyo update

    I just got my Droid X yesterday. How do we get updates like Froyo? Are we notified by Verizon somehow?

    Thanks

    The OTA froyo update will show up as a notification on your device (triangle, exclamation point). Scheduled for early September, but don't hold your breath.

    So I’d like to manually install froyo, but I’ve got koush’s recovery and It’s giving me a little trouble. I can’t find any definitive solutions around this. Anyone got suggestions?

    I’m thinking of just flashing sbf, rooting and doing the upgrade, but I haven’t done this yet. How bad can I screw my phone if I do something wrong flashing sbf? I know it’s pretty mindless, but what if it doesn’t finish or something. Just need some reassurance

    Also is there a program that I can backup all my apps to and restore them on 2.2? Does mybackup pro work for 2.2? Thanks

    Yes. Titanium backup is my favorite though.
