Another Photo of the Froyo Statue

Yep that’s definitely the same giant frozen yogurt which was featured in this post yesterday.  And since the video in that post has been set to “private” you can see a screenie from it next to our new photo below…

Only 5 more days until the release of Froyo!

Cheers CD!

    I think you had started to interest with the deliciousness sense of Froyo-banana split. You could download the Android 2.2 software at Android developer site for PC setting…

  • John L.

    Wow… Froyo… Woo Dee Frakkin Doo…

    Then who cares. Shove your Froyo statue up your rear Google.
    Get voice dial over bluetooth working first, then you can play with
    your dumb statue/mascots.
    Hey how about a giant pair of lips talking to a headset and phone, to
    represent the problem. Heyyy, theres an idea for you.

    guys whenever I mount my droid to the computer i have a bunch of repeated files. For example there will be one folder named android, and another folder named android right next to it but this one is “locked.” Is the locked one safe to delete?

  • Dito_Muertez

    Wow, I've been out of the loop, I didn't know we were that close.

  • lakerzz

    I have a question, how do you get out of a “power loop”? My phone keeps going through the power on cycle over and over…uughh…battery pull hasn't helped…

    • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

      restore a backup rom through your recovery image

      • lakerzz

        Cool, thanks…

      • Lee

        No reason to return a phone because of a bootloop. You can always go into recovery and reload.

        • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

          who said anything about returning a phone?

          • Lee

            ? 3 posts below yours in this same thread Fawzi94 said he returned his for a replacement when this happened to him. I was simply sayint there is no need to do this if you don't mind spending 3 minutes fixing it. Plus it's not fair for Verizon to replace phones cause people don't know what they are doing.

    • Dito_Muertez

      Anytime I get suck in a boot loop, as long as I can unlock and hit home, it stops

      • lakerzz

        Thanks, it finally stopped looping. I'll keep that in mind next time…

      • Fawzi94

        Seriously? When it happened to me i went to verizon and they replaced mine. WTF

  • EggoEspada

    I hope FroYo comes soon and it'll be available for download, instead of waiting for ant OTA update from Verizon…

  • DroidFan

    i know this is prolly not the right spot to ask this, but I want to know if I should upgrade to the droid incredible from the Droid. I cant afford both so I have to choose one or the other.

    • Lee

      Up to you, but I was told by a rep that 25% of HTC phones are returned because of problems. He said heat has been a real problem with the Incredible and that when it gets hot you can almost watch the battery level drop before your eyes. I don't have any idea if any of this is correct and I've never owned an HTC phone. I do own the Droid and love it. My personal experience with going to the Verizon store to try the Incredible was not good. When I got there it was broken and they didn't have any working Incredibles in the store. ( However a good thing was that they didn't have any to sell because they were on backorder)

      A sales rep at another store told me that there were a lot of Incredibles returned and replaced with Droids. Also the other way around…. :)

    • rebelz13

      I can tell you from my experience, that I absolutely prefer the Incredible over the Droid. I went through SIX droids and my Incredible has worked flawlessly. I came from the iPhone (I know, I know) to the Droid and I like the Android system so much better, but I wasn't crazy about my experience with the Droid due to all the problems I had. It really comes down to a couple of basic things. If you like the slide out keyboard and custom ROMs, then for now, the Droid probably makes more sense. If you're like me and HATE the slide out keyboard and like Sense UI, then the Incredible may be more practical. One other thing that I like about the Incredible is the different carrying cases/belt cases. For the Droid, I just couldn't find one that worked well on my belt. Either way though, you will love either one. Plus, there is a 30 day return policy so if you choose one and don't like it you should be able to return it and get the other!!

  • ben

    im confused. 5 days away from froyo release…does that mean we still have to wait for verizon to release it?
    and how long would that be? and if it's released in 5 days(not from verizon), does that mean a dev could mod it and release it to us before verizon???

    • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

      I was running a 2.1 based ROM long before it was released by Verizon.

  • OBEEZIE

    KELLEX!! should i unroot now to make sure i get the update?

    • Lee

      There is no need to unroot to get any update. You will ALWAYS receive all updates in the next update of your custom rom. Besides, if you unrooted now you will sit for a very long time before an actual 2.2 update comes to your phone and you will miss out on everything in the meantime.

      Unrooting for any reason is not something you should ever have to do. Unless you want to go back to a stock phone.

  • robinfriday

    who cares about a statue…I want to click on this site and see a step by step layout on how to manually update to 2.2…..screw the wait..no dates? blargh

  • caphoagie

    So how long do you think before Verizon will release 2.2 thank god for modded roms.

  • rizzet

    I changed my avatar pic to honor it!

  • kaeoortiz

    kellex does this now mean that you are going to make a new video on how to unroot?

    • Igon

      Is there a way to completely un-root (shivers at the thought). I mean, all the way back to even stock recovery?

      • Lee

        Yes there is and it is very easy. You always have the option to go back to stock, but there is no need to if all you want is the update. Whatever custom rom you have will be updated the very next day after any update comes out.

        Going back to stock is as easy as flashing the stock 2.0.1 update.zip, and 2.1 will come to your phone automatically.

        But like I said you don't need to… The only reason to go back to stock is if you simply want to go back to stock. Updates you will get regardless.

    • Lee

      Why would you want to unroot?

      An update coming doesn't have anything to do with rooting. You will get the update the very next day when your custom rom updates. You never have to worry about updates because you will always get them. It is sure a lot easier to wait one day for your updated custom rom then to go through the RSD Lite flashing process again if you want root back.

  • evltwn

    so with Froyo coming out sometime between 5 days and the end of the year, what does that mean for those of us who are running 2.1 rooted? Still haven't seen any posts on how to flash stock recovery back onto the phone using RSD Lite, like we did to get SPRecovery.

    • Winterfresh

      It's actually very easy to flash back to 2.01 with RSDlite if you find a tutorial. it sounds scary because you have to use the computer and stuff but its not.

      And I'm sure our trusted devs will have some delicious flavored rooted/custom ROM'd froyo for us soon after it is released.

      See what I did there? =P

      • caphoagie

        It's easier just to use droidmod to go back to stock I just had to do it I already had the Rom downloaded to my card took no time at all.

        • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

          It's even easier to upgrade straight to your updated custom ROM of choice.

    • Zander_206

      If you feel the need to unroot , which i think you will eventually just reroot again so it would be a waste of time, but here is a site that shows you the rsd lite route of going back to 2.0.1 completely stock ………………………………………….. http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/… ………………………..

    • Lee

      You don't need RSD Lite, or Droidmod or any software. All you need to do is flash the stock 2.0.1.zip file….. Voila. Within seconds your phone will notice the stock 2.0.1 and then will prompt you for the 2.1 update. All Droidmod and Rom Manager does is download the 2.0.1 zip file and run it. If you've ever done this in the past the zip file is probably still on your sd card for easy use. But unless you want to go stock, there is no need to go back just to get any new updates that come out, you will get them right where you are now.

      • evltwn

        I know that you should just be able to flash the 2.0.1 stock that is in ROM manager, but without seeing a video of someone else doing it and not having a single problem, still kinda scares me. I don't think I'd call myself a total noob, maybe an advanced noob….10-20 steps behind novice. LOL. Just wish there was a video out there of someone else on 2.1rooted going back to 2.0.1 non-root.

  • david6184

    no way……really???? 2.2 in 5 days?!?!?!?! jeez i hope so haha listen to me im sounding as if my droid is in despirate need of an update lol. so spoiled!

    Watermarking a photo you don't own… Google will be sending you a nice email soon…

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/STA37OFVH2B2H2F3NBS5L3F5NM Monkeybut

      Agreed law suit??

      • http://OceanCitySurfReport.com Mick

        cease and desist for sure! Maybe if there harsh on it if it was apple the dudes house would be raided !

    • StephanC

      The photos belong to TechCrunch. And the reason they're watermarked is because Kellex doesn't want other people copying stuff from this site.

      • Collin

        This latest photo actually belongs to me, not TechCrunch. I have given Kellex full rights to use the photo as he sees fit, and I am fine with the watermark.

        • StephanC

          ooh, how did you get the photo? Did you sneak onto the Google campus?

          • Dito_Muertez

            Really, you feel the need to go down that path?

          • StephanC

            No, I'm just wondering how he got it seeing as TechCrunch had issues.

          • Collin

            Nope, didn't need to. It's just sitting out in the open. I don't know why TechCrunch had a problem with security, I sure didn't. Maybe they were paying too much attention to the Froyo statue. I only took the one, and all the rest are of the other statues.

          • StephanC

            Oh, well thanks for sharing it with us.

    • kellex

      Hah you people are crazy. Colin sent this to me. No one owns this but him and we released it exclusively so we watermarked it. Not a Techcrunch photo, not a Google photo.

  • RealGame22

    I wonder how it taste..

  • cizzlen

    Bring on the 2.2 roms!
