    Some people have, but there was an issue with the rollout according to several sources, and a leaked VZW memo shows that the update is progressing but that people who received the earlier update will be getting a patch.

    So, yes, people have, but it's going slower than expected due to some issues, and some people will be getting two updates.

    Did you click the link? A signed update that works with stock recovery got pushed out. This means it's official.

    Here is the latest from the verizon web site whatever it means take it for what its worth. It was posted today on VZW Web Site.:
    Sell It In 5 - Android 2.2

    August 5, 2010Comments (95)
    [​IMG]There’s more to love about Android 2.2 than its tasty nickname – Froyo.
    Here are 5 features of Android 2.2 our original DROID customers can start to enjoy as early as this week. Similar to past OS updates, the Android 2.2 update will be pushed throughout the week, with the first 10,000 DROID devices expected to receive the push beginning sometime Tues., Aug. 3.
    (DROID 2 launches with 2.2 soon, and the DROID X is scheduled to receive the update late this summer.)
    [​IMG]
    2.2 makes DROID better in a Flash – Flash 10.1 that is!
    Android 2.2 includes support for Adobe Flash Player (available 8/18/10) :
    • This means improved Web browsing.
    • It means access to videos, games, interactive media and Web applications.
    • It means the ability to watch movies and TV clips, get sports updates, see replays, share videos, and watch them within your Web browser.
    • And, we’re not just talking a few websites here: 85% of the top 100 websites utilize Flash!
    [Of course, not all Flash-enabled sites and services may be accessible on mobile devices. Example: Hulu does not allow mobile viewing of its content at this time.]
    NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 10.1 is expected to be available in Android Market beginning August 18, 2010 and will require an additional download on original DROID by Motorola devices with Android 2.2 software.
