Motorola Droid Android 2.2 Froyo Update: How To Update Motorola Droid OS


If you want the Motorola Droid Android 2.2 Froyo Update, here’s a short “Motorola Droid Android 2.2 Froyo Update” tutorial you gotta read. Motorola Droid can get an update to Android OS 2.2 Froyo. Yes, it’s been almost a month since Google released the Android OS 2.2 update but Motorola or Verizon has so far failed to update the units of existing Motorola Droid phone owners. They keep promising an Over-The-Air (OTA) update since last week of May but up until now, I am still waiting in vain. If you are suffering the same predicament and can no longer wait for the official Froyo update, there already is an unofficial way to update your Droid. A hacker has managed to create a compatible kernel with Android 2.2 Froyo OS for Motorola Droid and he is giving it away for free. Take note that you need to have a rooted Droid phone for this method to work. If you don’t know how to root your droid, don’t bother making an attempt to do this trick.

Again, please heed this warning that this unofficial way to update your Motorola Droid will involve the use of overclocked kernels. But if you already rooted your phone which already voided your warranty, why not go all the way and show Verizon and Motorola just how clever you can be. Here is the first step you should do, go to this website and choose the kernel which will work best with your phone. I downloaded the 125 MHz kernel for standard voltage and 1000 clock speed. After which, you have two options on how to proceed. Choose which method you feel most comfortable doing.

    I did not update to the Verizon Android 2.2 update up to this time. My friend from Verizon even said motorola droid software update 2.2 android OS is delayed. I haven’t been in touch with them though. But if it gets official, I’ll post my comment again about the release of the Android Froyo update. But personally, I really don’t mind not having the OTA update. I’m 56 years old and do not do much stuff with my Moto Droid – just for calling and texting. Nothing much happening with my phone. I don’t even download apps so the Verizon 2.2 update on Droid OS ain’t a big deal or issue to me.

    Hi, I am on rooted 2-1. I have been trying for days to get froyo but I can’t get anything to work. Phone keeps freezing. Tried a nandroid version (droidlife). Petes BB 0.2.1 and 0.2 (many thanks for reboot option!). Onix. Everything just keeps freezing, had to go back to rooted 2-1. I am doing all through SPRecovery. You mention links, I am sorry, where are they? It says use links “below,” I don’t see them, could you please send them? Ten minutes on glitchy Android FROYO and I WANT IT……! Thank you!

    Seems like you’re just stirring up dissent where there needs not be any. Show a little more patience. Sure, offer the hack, but don’t act like you should already have Android 2.2 OS, that’s ridiculous.
