    Almost since the FRG01B firmware began rolling out to bring the Motorola Droid to Android 2.2 we have been hearing murmurs of a second firmware, this one called FRG22.

    The question of whether FRG22 was a bug-fixed version of the Froyo update was answered when the halted FRG01B update resumed as normal, with no sight of the newer firmware. Now we have an e-mail being sent out to Verizon Wireless business subscribers confirming a second update that will follow the first Android 2.2 firmware.

    This second update will make it possible to download the official release of Adobe Flash for mobile.

    Is this second update the mysterious FRG22? Well, we can’t say for sure with the information we have been given, but it seems this might be likely.

    We heard that the first round of updating should wrap up by the 18th of August, and that seems like a plausible date for the second round of firmware to start hitting handsets considering Adobe is nipping at the heels of the official release of Flash 10.1.

    Yeah, I find myself caring less and less and less. All this getting our hopes up over and over and then crushing them over and over is pushing me closer and closer to rooting.

    Perhaps the Droid 1 comes first because it was the first out. Perhaps the Droid 1 comes first because more people have it than the Inc or the X. Most likely it is both of them. So what if it is at EOL, it has the largest base. Besides, it is just at the beginning of life for a lot of users. I guess the rest will just have to wait their turn. Yawn.

    For those who haven't followed the Froyo saga. Simply put VZW put out Froyo now because the D2 is live, and it is running 2.2 stock. The next update may or may not be FRG22 as I have heard it. Originally the update was pulled because of Adobe and Motorola not playing nice. VZW chose to release something instead of nothing which is good for all the end users. A little more patience will bring Flash to the Droid as well an updated build too

    Flash is supposed to come out to the Market on August 18th, 2010, according to semi-older DroidForums News Posts.

    Flash beta builds worked perfectly fine on frf57, frf84b, (frf91 from what I read, never ran that) frgb01 and now frg22. there is something else going on.

    Or Vz and Moto are not satisfied with the performance. Most of the users are not satusfied either but they simply assume "That's Flash for you..". Maybe Vz and Moto will release a versdion that works smoother and doesn't stop playing 4 or 5 times durin the video while it tries to catch up with itself.

    Maybe.

    Well, people have figured out that the stock FRG10B kernel works at up to 800MHz, but is only set to scale up to 600MHz without root/SetCPU.

    It's also been mentioned by Adobe that the MINIMUM for Flash is a Cortex A8 CPU running at 800MHz.

    I'm wondering if FRG22 (or whatever this update to the update) contains a bit of trickery in the kernel to scale up to 800MHz in certain circumstances - like when rendering Flash content. Perhaps that was what the whole disagreement with Adobe was about regarding the Flash integration. Perhaps Adobe's stance was "unless you let the device run at 800MHz or better when running flash content, no dice".

    It's the only change that I can think of that would be REQUIRED to make the device truly meet the "needs" of Flash 10.1 - otherwise, the device seems perfectly capable as the beta shows.

    Yeah, this roller coaster ride has gotten boring, Verizon.

    The 2.2 update, while a beautiful update, is getting "meh" because of all of these "yes, no, maybe, yes!!, no, actually i think yes" announcements.
