    Can anyone explain to me why the Droid X is able to get the update by checking in the System Updates menu; yet the Droid 1 has always had to wait for VZW to push the updates? I guess i'm just a bit confused as to why a menu option is functional on one device, but not another?

    It probably has to do with Motoblur and the update module working differently on the customized software vs. stock Android. I have the Droid 1 and the girlfriend has the Droid 2, and the 2 does indeed get updates much more easily manually. The 1 had to wait until it was pushed.

    I started the update at 7:00 AM (EST) and by 7:20 AM (EST) I was up and running 2.2! I then loaded Flash 10.1 and the updated Gmail app. So far it is running great! dancedroid

    I found out last night that the ClockWorkMod bootloader will stop the udpate. I flashed the SBF file and all worked fine. Was very happy to see that all my apps and settings stayed after flashing the SBF. I was expecting for it to be all gone. After the flash, 2.2 updated perfectly. Now I'm going to root it...well, look for a root method. Poeple are saying the 2.2 root for the Droid2 works. We'll see. I wnat to remove the bloatware again and get my root apps back.

    Yeah, I guess the thing that was confusing me is simply this: why have a menu option on the Droid 1 if it's totally non-functional? I mean it was always said that the OTA for the Droid 1 was done in waves to prevent a mass-bricking and also to ease the load on the infrastructure. I was wondering what it was about the Droid X/2 where all of a sudden this is no longer a concern?

    Are you running the stock 2.1 that came with the device or did you root?

    Once you install the update, do you have to reconfigure all of your home screens, alerts, etc. or does it save all your personal settings and reapply once you are running 2.2?

    Shoot, at this point then I would call VZW and ask them. With the amount of people trying to update though it could be server overload or something.
