    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?
