    Does skype work on froyo?
    Ever since I installed froyo I haven't been able to log onto skype.
    Is this a known issue or is there something I need to do?

    Thanks

    i am too having the same issue and after a little analization of my own this is what i've come up with ... having the new froyo installed on the droid and being "rooted"/'modified OS' is the culprit. My findings came from havin an iPhone with a modified/Jailbroken OS and was presented with a message that 'Skype will not work on a modified OS' <--- not exactly what it said but something to that effect

    Ok, so when skype was working was your phone rooted? I have had my phone rooted since dec, and had skype working, now with froyo it doesn't. That doesn't make sense to me, if it is an issue with being rooted, then it should never worked for me.

    According to AndroidGuys the relationship between Froyo & Skype is on the rocks. No more using Froyo & Skype to make wifi VoIP calls while bypassing the Verizon network. I hope this is just a little spat and not a breakup.

    Awesome! I was wondering why it kept crashing. New update fixes it

    Yeah, I've been unable to use Skype on my Moto Droid since moving to Froyo - although it's remained working on my Droid Incredible - and this update allowed me to use it again. How cool! dancedroid

    Darn, I was hoping you would say: "There was an update and it allows WiFi calling." ....

    Ok, so I updated to FroYo last night and can find Skype nowhere, searched the Android market and VCast Apps, nothing... Not that I'm going back to 2.1 just for Skype.
