    In 2-3 months I will tell you the exact date that it was released. Use no firmware before its time!

    I remember reading on MDW that P3, the father of the Froyo leak, saying that August 6th was the day of release for the Moto Droid. I think he is a reliable source. As far as all 3 phone at one time that would be great.

    Lol, idk what you've been running, but 99% of people who run froyo see an improvement. Did you wipe before applying?

    Better yet, just try a custom rom like Cyanogen or Sapphire(pick this one :D).

    So because you're running a leaked crappy version you think that's what will be officially released?

    Get real.

    Mmmmm, FroYo... <Insert the sound of Homer Simpson drooling here.>

    I've been running Froyo ROMs since the second leak (and wiping till it hurts) on my Droid and haven't looked back. I look forward to Verizon letting all the people who've patiently (ha ha ha!) waited for the sweet FroYo goodness to hit their phones finally enjoy Flash and JIT. Really, folks, you've been missing out!

    I can't wait for froyo. Right now I'm enjoying launcherpro with 5 home screens.

    First off I did a clean install of FRF84B because you really have to when coming from 2.1. FRF84B is the leaked ROM from MDW and it was sluggish on my Droid. I then tried BBv04 with several different kernels and it was sluggish. I then upgraded to FRG01B and it's sluggish. My phone had a major issue while running FRG01B so I did an sbf flash with a stock 2.1 sbf file which fixed the major issue and then I did a clean install of FRG01B and because I had just come from 2.1 I could definitely see that 2.1 is a lot more responsive on my Droid and 2.2 is slower. While I never said FRG01B was going to be the same version that is rumored to be released I do wonder how many more revised versions they can come out with between now and the rumored date?

    Final notes: I am just letting people know my experience with Froyo, there is no reason to jump all over me just because you don't agree.

    some phones just arent good enough for froyo:) I have been on froyo for quite a while now and i love it. yes it did increase the speed of my phone especially when i installed the proper kernal. my phone flies and average 1710 on quad. So stop waiting for those of you with a real droid (1) that is and root and get it done already. Quit waiting on verizon and motorola.

    Great. Now our phones will be cursed and contain potassium benzoate.

    (That's bad)

    I don't know if this rumor is correct. And I've already stated in several threads that the date for the first to roll out for Droid is 8/7. Then it's to be followed by the X and the last was the Incredible.

    I would say that the "source" I got this from was pretty good, but I haven't heard anything in a while. I'll double check it.

    I actually do have an update on what I'm hearing now. I'm hearing the Incredible on 8/4, Droid still on 8/7 and X on 8/16.

    Again, don't expect everyone to get the update right on those days. They will start out slowly and increase with each following day.
