    nah, the source tree hasn't been updated yet. They just updated the SDK with new API's and tools for app developers.

    Because posts in the news section of the forum can't be edited I'm opening this thread. Please keep the 2.2 discussion in here for rooted users. We need to keep the other 2.2 thread clean for non-rooted users. Thanks :D

    This was copied from Dandroid's thread in the news section.

    Android 2.2 SDK Available
    [​IMG]

    The Android 2.2 SDK is now available from Google. First things first, to find out everything you wanted to know check out the latest Blog post about it from Google here:

    You mean you haven't read about the new market? There's a thread in the General discussion area about it. It's suppose to be Google Chrome Market.

    ive got a question about the supposed Wifi tethering feature in 2.2. One: will we have to pay more for the feature? Two: If so, what does this mean about the current wifi feature on rooted phones? Will Verizon be able to detect that i am tethering from another application? Just a thought... Because i am pretty sure i remember hearing that Verizon wanted to charge for this feature.

    Can't wait for Cyanogen to get a hold of the AOSP code so we can keep our root and get some nice 2.2 features.

    We simply don't have an answer for that question yet. Anybody who gives you an answer is speculating, we've heard nothing from Verizon about it.

    They sure do like to build anticipation dont they?.... i feel like im back in kindergarden waited for recess.... or chocolate milk(lots of anticipation their :))


    i guess it is good business though, not setting a solid release date in case of possible set backs.
