    Okay.....
    I know this question has been asked a million times......but i haven't seen it on this thread.

    If I allow the upgrade to Froyo by Verizon, will it CLEANLY overwrite my rooted Droid running BB 1.1?

    Then I just go through the whole root process again, load a new rom and then use Titanium Backup to restore?

    I can't recall them EVER promising Flash with 2.1 or even that it would enable it. People thought it would be included but Motorola never said it, neither did Verizon nor Adobe.

    I'm running FRF84B with Flash. It works, its real. It'll be working for all 2.2 users.

    My question is when Froyo OTA comes out will you have to wipe your Cache? I have a lot of stuff setup on my 2.1 that I would like to keep and not have to spend all the time setting it back up. Will you be able to go from 2.1 to 2.2 without wiping Cache?

    2.2 (Froyo) will draw more juice

    I plan upon using the Hotspot, occasionally. More juice will be used. A better battery would really help. I've tweeked as many energy saving apps as possible. Any word on battery upgrades for the Droid?

    So assuming the 7/13 date is real (not holding breath) could we expect to see the zip file before that?

    They said end of month - 7/13 is wishful thinking.

    Yes and no. Yes, it will overwrite your rooted Droid to a 2.2 unrooted status. But no, because if you're running BB 1.1 you will not get 2.2 OTA, since the ROM you're using is blocking the OTA's.

    You will need to go back to stock 2.1 or wait until somebody posts a direct download link to the final 2.2.

    Im surprised that I was the first one to post this lol

    I totally agree with you and Ive been messing with computers for about 15 years lol

    You mean data, not cache. cache is temporary quick access "scrap" space. as for wiping I dont think it does but then again ive never done an official update.

    The official update shouldn't require you to do anything other then press the accept button. Does that mean it will go smoothly for everyone? No, some people will have issues and those that do should take it to their Verizon store.

    So far there have been two upgrades. Both specifically said improved battery. I did not notice any difference.

    As we get closer to this Verizon will release a list of features showing what Froyo will do. I'm running it overclocked and I feel that battery life is better on 2.2 then it was on 2.1.

    But no matter what kind of battery improvement they may or may not make don't expect it to suddenly last your for days at a time. Come to terms with the fact that smart phones eat batteries. I have spare batteries and chargers for this purpose and they are relatively inexpensive.
