    Flash is a 2.2 and above exclusive application - have you thought of updating to 2.2 ?

    I want to upgrade to 2.2 but I thought my wireless provider has to allow it?

    It can be done manually - out of curiosity who is your provider, is it not VZW ?

    You can use Skyfire to view some flash videos in 2.1

    There is a 2.2.1 rom available here. Download: FRG83 Froyo for Original DROID - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    But you need to be rooted. You can find all sorts of rooting guides here on the forums,

    So my phone will still be fully functional after I update it right? I just thought i read somewhere that your provider has to release it, but I live in Alaska and we are always the last to get anything.

    So Nebula, You think it would be best if I use the unrooted form for the update?
