    Do u know of an update or a way to make 2.2 Froyo update google maps? I'm trying to do the latest update and it won't let me,

  • digitalicecream

    Seriously, let them work the bugs out on it. It's not Verizon, its Motorola and HTC that have to do the work for the Droids.

    You know they wont get away with trying to wait to bring 2.2 to the other handsets… its gonna be out there already unless they will force their phones to go back to 2.1.. but someone will have a manual update soon as the i/o converence is over i'm sure… they mine as well just release it now!

    You know Verizon is going to drag their feet on this. They have to make sure they can get all of the money from their customers before they push this out.

    I can't wait. Does anyone else think that Froyo could eliminate the need to be rooted?

    • Winterfresh

      I'm going to have go ahead and say no on that one =P

      There will always be something better coming out, and the custom ROM devs usually get things working first

      Yessir. They have software which will allow streaming from iTunes to your device.

        Soon it will be easier to tell us what can't be done.

        • amosk

          LOL, so true! This is the kind of day I was dreaming of :)

        Hey just a quick mention here…we can already stream music to our phones..
        I use Gmote and I Have about 85 gigs of my music on my computer, no matter where I go I have all my music….you can chose to play it on your comp or steam to your phone…. And its free!

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

          Don't you have to be on the same local network as your computer for that to work. I use gmote all the time at home but can never get it to connect outside of my home network.

          • Doolidg

            I had that same problem at first…I then unplugged my wireless router plugged the internet straight into my computer then downloaded Gmote so it ran off my ip instead of wifi… So now when Im near my wireless network I use it but when Im out and about I pull up find server and connect through my ip walah… My music wegener my phone is…
