    Wow... um. The version of Froyo we are running on our rooted Droids now is a leaked release candidate that Motorola has already been working on. The AOSP just means that the source code is now available for a full AOSP build, code inspection, etc.... That is what is really exciting!

    the answer is no,, the froyo source is open but motorola needs to code it to work with the hardware in the droid which is why it takes time to get to the ota state. I am sure the awesome devs like jrummy and cyanogen will have something rooted people can enjoy soon enough though whoo.dancedroid

    unrooted people can install it, but then you're rooted... so there is no 2.2 "force upgrade" file yet, basically

    Its not really, I guess, the leaked version of 2.2 google publicly said isnt a final release, but currently a version of 2.2 is floating around, jrummy made a rom from it. I assume what was announced today is the official final release, any difference between what is announced today and whats already been leaked is unknown to me

    The first version that was leaked of Froyo did not require root. The second and better version had root built into it. So if you weren't rooted previously and installed the second leak, you are now rooted.

    well the verizon site for the droid shows that our beloved droid will be running Flash late summer. so i would assume 2.2 at the same time or at least very close.
