    I meant in the code -- once it's on the AOSP it'll hit the ROMs.

    OTAs are blocked in most ROMs, yes, but I keep my eye on the stock updates as well. Not that I want to go back, but since most Droid owners are stock I can be most useful that way. :)

    1, did you have sync turned on? 2, have you read any of the previous posts? 3, are you willing to try to fix the problems?

    Yes read through the post. More info I'm rooted and running Cyanogen. I thought I was just doing a Cyanogen update next thing I know I'm running 2.2.

    ummm…no.

    I would advise you todo a factory data reset. Start from scratch with your sign in. Your contacts are backed up in gmail, calendar, google calendar, paid apps are in your downloads.

    What other choice did you have? Your Droid wasn't working.

    Just my two cents, but I think Froyo is da bomb. I am sure gingerbread will be even better of an update to the OS but Froyo sure had some nice changes. (Plus if you are rooted you can get all the goodies from Froyo and have some nice extra hacks included)

    If you have Froyo, you can get Flash now. You have 3 options.

    1. If you have RFG01B you can install Flash from one of the many links on this site.
    2. If you have RFG22D you can go to the Market and get it from there.
    3. If you have FTG01B you can install the patch that updates Froyo to FBG22D and go to the Market as in option 2.

    I made a change in option #3. I did it this way because I can't edit.

    I just have sound quality issues, no force closes. I tried to ask if anyone had problems when hooking up to a real stereo in an earlier post, but all I got was some sarcastic non-answer trying to make me sound like I don't know what I'm talking about. So I'll try to ask again, does anyone have great sounding Slacker or Pandora on a real stereo with 2.2 (non-root)? Thanks.
