    Oh the flash people are using on their droids is a Nexus one version? I thought I read somewhere it was a beta of the droid version. Huh, I'm surprised it even works on the droid.

    Most of them have been betas, and most of the betas have been for the Nexus 1. Don't be surprised that it works, be happy that it does. :)

    That second update in the news section isn't official (yet) because as soon as people install it they get FRG01B update notifications. It also doesn't allow Flash to be seen. Go ahead and install Flash from the forum. When it becomes official for the Droid there will be a story posted on it and you can either install from the market or uninstall manually and install the one from the market at that point.

    I dont know what froyo you got but mine is far from any more comlicated to use, way faster, much more responsive, and the battery issue fixes itself in a day or two it seems like

    Hey brother check out the pole! Your losing this argument and must not have a full understanding of your phone. I can't believe you blasted hookbill for having an opinion. If you weren't looking for results from both sides why make the poll. The 2.2 update is great! Learn how your phone works and maybe then you'll see.

    Froyo is more complicated, harder to use, has compatability issues with apps I was already using, and drains my battery in 1 day instead of three, was there any benefits at all to forcing my phone to upgrade besides the 2 extra app screens

    My phone [Moto Droid] seems to run slower and has some problems with 2.2. Launcher Pro can't default to be my default launcher anymore, it just always switches to the stock launcher no matter what. Often times the... desktop [for lack of a better word] takes a good 4 seconds to load after coming back from an app.

    Overall, it's been pretty meh. I liked having Launcher Pro as my default launcher in 2.1, the only thing about 2.2 I like is... uh... I guess the flash thing. Haha.

    Did you get the update OTA or did you push it manually? If you pushed it manually, was it the smaller file or the larger file from the circus thread? OTA-pushed updates have had issues with a lot of phones and manually installing the larger update file from the circus thread has fixed 90+% of the problems people have had. If you installed the smaller file, the same applies. If you installed the larger file, try installing it again before you resign yourself to poor performance from your Droid.

    The problems the larger file addresses include, but are not limited to;
    Lag, performance issues, force closures, random reboots, lost settings refusing to take.

    If you are comfortable trying to fix the phone yourself, either search for the file and the install instructions or I will provide both if you can't find them. If you are not, take it to Verizon and complain. They'll likely try to fix it or replace your phone.
