SPECIAL THANKS TO FURBEARINGMAMMAL FOR ALL THE HELP UPDATING MY PHONE...PROST... and I'm looking for your ebook...
A link would be nice so those of us answering your question don't have to go through 100 pages of posts to find it.
It's always worth rooting if you want to root and know what you're doing. Stress on the second half of that sentence.

I did the manual install and it bricked my phone....even brought it to VZW and they couldn't fix it...
Fortunately, they recognize a lot of people have reported this problem and they're sending me a new phone....
i gave up. waited way too long for the OTA, so i did it by myself.
was very easy, downloaded all the files on my phone.
only issue i am having is that LauncherPro is EXTREMELY laggy...
Thanks Bpad10. I'm trying yo do it without the computer. THE green and blue android forums from Aug 8 Tells how to do it....or trys. 2 people have since "bricked" and and as many times as I've "camera uped" I'll wait for the droid only step by step....:icon_cool:
I finally got the update today I noticed to opposite, LauncherPro is much smoother than before. Perhaps it depends on what other applications you have running.
my phone got updated last night..
i noticed. 2 more windows.
I haven't gone through with it yet, but here is a link that includes info (& even barcodes) for doing it phone only. it seems like it is explained in very simple words and includes pictures of what to do at each step as well (PS the instructions for phone only are after the USB method, just keep scrolling and you'll see it!)
[How-To] Force the Official Android 2.2 Froyo Update for the Motrola Droid (FRG01B | Update 1 of 2) - Android Forums
are you using basic LauncherPro or LauncherPro plus? I installed the basic version a few weeks ago and I've been wanting to upgrade to the paid version (mostly just to support the amazing developer), but I saw a lot of people wrote in market comments that they had LPpro issues on their droids when they got the froyo update, but I didn't see any complaints about the basic version and 2.2. I haven't gotten froyo yet so I've been curious about what will happen to my LauncherPro when I do get it... I don't ever want to go back to not having it.
I have the paid Launcher Pro and it seems to be working just fine. It was laggy at first when I initially installed Froyo but it has been working a lot smoother now. And I love the new update widget for messages! I can scroll through my messages on my home screen in a really fancy way haha. I hope this helps. Pro Plus is really nice and I use it at my main home launcher
