    Were you here for the fiasco that was the 2.1 update?

    For 2 months there was a rumor every two weeks regarding the release date and people would get their panties in a bunch every time.

    I was laughing, because obviously, they must be joking...

    Here we go again!

    It's simple, the update will be here when you see it on your phone.

    Of course, running froyo now is always good.

    If I rooted my Incredible today & did not download a bootlegged version of 2.2, would I still get the 2.2 update when it's released OTA?

    Thanks

    2.2 Update for the Moto Droid

    I keep hearing about the 2.2 froyo for the Android. How exactly do I get the update for my Droid? Is it already available? I'm new to the Droid world and still figuring things out. i believe I'm running 2.1 right now. When will I be able to upgrade?

    Any phone that was ony rooted, will still receive it, whether or not you can RUN it will be another story.

    You didn't get it yet? We all have it. There should be a notification on your screen. If not, just keep hitting "Check for updates" until sometime in August.

    Lol that's hilarious.

    But really it hasn't been released yet supposidly it is now August 6 or 8 but when it is pushed out it will be pushed out in stages so you most likely wont get it the first day of release. But when you do get it a notification will show up on your phone all you do is hit okay and it will install.

    Highly unlikely seeing how Motorola,google,Verizon and adobe all said the nexus one gets it first followed by the Droid by Motorola getting it second.

    Once someone gets and shares the update it can be manually loaded if you haven't already received it.

    Ok, I don't chime in often, but I feel the need to do so this time. Personally, I'm one of those "nervous" folk out there who is worried about rooting my phone and anxiously awaiting the froyo update for my MD.

    I say just wait and give it time. If it happens when the rumors state, GREAT! If it doesn't, it will eventually. Trust me, I'm dying to have the ability to load apps onto my memory card and such. However, we have to have patience. We're lucky we're still able to get another update, especially since our MD is slated for EOL.

    My two cents...

    Are we there yet, Daddy?

    The word you meant, btw, is "here" not the thing you do with your ears.
