Verizon announces it's pushing Droid update to enable Flash


well.. its always from Verizon. the article the other day actually showed from vzw website it was supposed to be pushed out on the 24th. its always bullshit.

Still don't understand why this wasn't included in the first 2.2 update.... jeez Verizon, your getting kinda sloppy and slow with your updates.

Do a search for that is supposed to be the version loaded on the Droid 2.

Well, I tried 2 different beta apk versions of the flash on my 2.2 droid with the first update within the last week. It is TERRIBLE. I don't understand how people are saying it works. It just doesn't. It is easy to find and install...it just doesn't work. But it appears some DROID's work with 2.2 and the flash apk and some do not. I'm the latter, so I am really looking forward to this OTA push.
I'm not rooted by the way.

The newer official build runs much better. I used the beta 3 (ver I think) and it was very jumpy. The version that was purportedly pulled from the D2 ( is much better on my 600MHz D1 and my wife's stock D1. I haven't tried the latest ( yet.

I tried the It's better. At least the flash demo works mostly. Still laggy and slow. I tried the beta 3 with my droid last week and beta 2. I think I tried the Nexus one final version. No go.

I loaded beta 3 on a co-workers droid. Laggy also. I didn't try though. I don't get it? Oh well..maybe I will be OK with the latest OTA update. Fingers crossed.
I'm gonna root anyhow after this last one and overclock to 800mhz.

If you use appbrain and install the fast web installer on your phone you can then login to appbrain on the desktop side and click the install button which then sends it to your phone which installs the flash player app from the market.

It is MORE Bullshit , also there is nothing special about froyo , this is just an attempt to build it up to so much more than it actually is its hilarious , they get everyone in a frenzy, and by the time most get it they are already discussing the next ( cheap) build of Android , then the whole process starts all over again and the whining begins , Hook, Line and Sinker come to mind every time this crap is posted

I don't understand, is this a whole new OTA 2.2 OS update? Or are they just publishing the Flash app to the market? Why can't they just do that? Why do they have to push a whole separate version of 2.2 to be compatible?

I got my first 2.2 update 15 min before their deadline, so I assume I'll get this one. I hope they slip in a fix to the half-dead flick-resistant homepage that they broke in the first 2.2.
