Hi everyone. This is my first droid phone. I have the LG Ally. I know it is running the 2.1 softwear. I know that froyo 2.2 is a better softwear. My question what is the difference and why is everyone like when is it going to be here for my Ally? Just a question I have.

Bigger feature improvements include the ability to use USB tethering (although most carriers restrict this and charge extra for the ability - there are a few apps for non-root that accomplish this, though, and it can be done easily if rooted); installation of apps to your SD card instead of internal storage; the ability to support Adobe Flash; and increases in performance. Of course, it looks a little different too, which will depend on how your device manufacturer has decided to theme the ROM.

Yeah I have read that here. I have also read that you can go into verizon and they can upload the new softwear for you. But you have to have at least 50% of your battury and it takes like 20 min.

If u root the ally n use other roms u can have all the features close to 2.2 now.

Wired and wireless tether, apps2sd which is nice cuz the phone don't have a lot of internal memory.

No flash tho. Even with 2.2 their won't be flashplayer. Unless they changed that. It was said the processor is to outdated and slow to carry flash on 2.2

lg ally <rooted velocity 0.4>
samsung fascinate <rooted>

Hi Everyone... Just a friendly FYI... I went to Verizon corporate store today... They do not have the ability to download 2.2 for Ally... Said they don't have a release date for update either...
