    what version of android are the new droids shipping out with? i need to get a new one under my warranty because the speaker in my current one is starting to go out on me, and before i go through the work of flashing back my current phone to stock, i wanted to see if anyone knew what the new ones are coming with. is it 2.2? also, assuming i get 2.2 on the new one, i can just go through the same motions to reflash back to 2.1, with sprecovery, and then get a custom rom on, correct?

    Just got a replacement yesterday because of their crappy headphone jacks. It came installed with Android 2.1

    Is there an easy way to find what Android version is installed?

    Well first off you will not be getting a new Droid. You will be getting a refurbished one so it will have 2.1 on it and shortly after you will probably receive the 2.2 OTA. However, I have heard that Assurian does not have any droid 1 left and are "upgrading" to Incredible.
