  • What to say I just wonder why on the droid it says froyo not version 2.2..Thanks

  • Do you sell advertising space?

  • It's hard to believe why this new phone that I own, which is supposedly Motorola's flagship piece of technology is the last of the most recent phones to get the “official” Froyo

    i highly doubt it would do more harm then good but oh well

  • Camaros_Kill

    wats that sound @ :27??

  • zeem

    my 2.1 milestone already has these lock features. Is is missing on the american droid?

  • Geoff

    Please, please, please tell me that slingshot effect will not be in the menus. (when it springs back after reaching the end of a list)

    My old BB Storm had that and I absolutely hated it! It looks nice in theory but is a PITA when implemented. And that looks like a LOT of elastic spring back on the screen. NOOOO!!!

    • Austin

      I love this effect, it is one of the things that will make android look more polished… and make it more user friendly to novices… I've been looking for this for awhile… there are so many animations on the iphone that make it look so smooth.. android obviously dominates iphone os in features, but they just need to work on aesthetics before iphone users are converted in masses

  • sundawg

    It's cool but it's not exciting, I mean it's only a video of a different unlock options and usb tethering… Rooted Droids can produce a wifi hotspot so that's not to thrilling to see either, and all I saw was some screen that said they setup the option for apps2sd for all I know its a hoax, why else would they not share their froyo rom?

  • Can I get a video of them running some benchmark tests? Wifi teathering and aps2sd have been out for a while and anyone who really wanted them could have rooted and gotten them. Let me see what that thing has got! Is iit going to be anywhere near the nexus 1 with froyo? I think io am going to stick with my bb v1.1, unles I see some crazy performance jump.

    • brandonmee

      That is on there today. Apparently the stock kernel with Linpack around 10…with P3 1200 kernel you get around 18. With bugless beast running 1200 I can get 10 now.

  • giovanni

    in the first video there is no proof that that is really a motorola droid that i can see. Can't see the buttons on the bottem and theres a lame zoom in effect on an old picture thats been seen around before(about screen featuring “froyo” text as its version). On the second video im wondering whats going on at 0:08. In my honest opinion these look like semi-elaborate fakes.

    • giovanni

      I forgot to mention that also in the second video the bottom buttons are never pressed, even when there seems to be an act like home is pressed in the beginning, it actually isn't. Still thinking these are fakes.

  • Nick

    This is the second one we have seen but im still a little bit iffy on this because there again in the video is setcpu….i know you can download it to see your speeds and not have to be rooted but just having it showing up there makes me wonder if its not just another user created rom. We'll see in the coming weeks when 2.2 is pushed to us through OTA……it is coming OTA right? lol…

  • Claire

    Did anyone else see this rumor, FroYo to be released on the 18th, at this site: http://mydroidtech.com/?

  • BIG

    ITS A TURD BUCKET!!!

  • Barlog

    Video links aren't working 🙁

  • mkregs

    In the first video on his homescreen, isn't that a SetCPU widget? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but does 2.2 come easily rooted?…cause I thought SetCPU was only for root users.

    • corydunbar

      you can use setcpu to read your clocked speed without root, which is probably what they are doing here. But they may have been able to find an easy root because this is an early build. It hasn't been patched up to annoy us all yet.

  • its real

  • I wonder why on the droid it says froyo not version 2.2…..I'm just sayin

  • Chris Nimon

    This reminds me of the BJ section at the beginning of some movies. STOP teasing us already.

    • Jordan

      What kind of movies are you watching???

  • Wish they would make it easier to unlock. Especially when answering a call. Takes me 2 or 3 swipes just to get it going, lol.

  • For pete's sake… let me have Flash already! :sob:

  • mikey

    ok all i want in 2.2 is wifi tethering without root and i was so pumped and npw we dont get it?

  • trumpet444

    what's with the reggae?

  • bladedancer12

    stupid question but what exactly is froyo????

    • trumpet444

      the name of the updated OS. Android 2.2. Others were called donut, eclair, and cupcake. Froyo (frozen yogurt) is Android 2.2's name

  • mouzz

    its a shame that they keep teasing us with videos of things that everyone already knows about…
    today i hard resetted my phone men the home screen and the dock are just horrible and laggy I almost forgetted it (tks launcher pro) and the black and white definitions page is it gonna remain the same with the retro look? and the grey notification bar? please give me the tethering, the apps2sd, make the phone more stylish and fluid and fix the bugs of 2.1 (like the 30-60-30fps one that makes emulators unusable) and i´ll probably never update the phone again …

  • matt

    how do you get the apps you already have on your phone moved from the internal memory to your sd card

    • corydunbar

      once we get Froyo on our droids all you have to do is go to settings> applications> manage applications> select an app> move to SD Card. it was in the Google I/O presentation

  • bonez

    Can't watch it on my Droid

  • sremex

    The videos dont work anymore

    • aczm1988

      Yes they do, just checked.

      • Winterfresh

        I just tried them, they didn't work for me

        • aczm1988

          Just checked again, there both good, dunno whats wrong on your end but there still playable.

      • Dan

        Says not for mobile when I try to open

        • aczm1988

          Ya im on a pc not my phone, maybe thats why guys ?

          • Sremex

            They don't work on mobile.Yea

  • Im guessing that this is not the final product so don't freak out about the WiFi hotspot give it some time and i bet there just trying to get the hype up!!

  • Kellex check in box sdk info

  • georgy

    I hope camera will get some kind of fix with the Froyo…
    The only bad thing on Milestone.

  • Chrisd3

    I hope this come the the Droid soon. (This Month)

  • djspikezz

    So wow, more Froyo teasing!! Wonder who this that has this droid with 2.2 on it? Moto Employee perhaps?

  • RealGame22

    Droid Life is on a Roll Today!!!!……Keep it Coming

  • Sackmonkey

    So has it officially been announced anywhere if we will or will not get free wifi tethering??

    • Ray

      Root and you can get all the wifi tethering you want. But honestly I have used mine maybe twice

      • Sackmonkey

        I have rooted and use it all the time. If VZ allows it free in 2.2, I may go back to stock when Froyo drops. That's why I'm curious.

  • kulz

    we jammin~!

  • andrew401

    i think it's fucked up they wont share that. i stopped suporting them over this

    • kellex

      And the fact that they are going to stretch out probably 5-10 videos to get some internet lovin'. 🙂

    • Mrpicolas

      its dev copy and since source is not released it is useless to try and distribute would do mote harm than good

      • andrew401

        i highly doubt it would do more harm then good but oh well

  • Anyone else getting “this video cannot be played on mobile?”

    • kellex

      Yes I did.

      • Anyway around it?? I tried clearing cache and what not.. hmm maybe its the htc evo player I'm using on nextbeast 1.1…

        • jarrett

          no, its just that when they uploaded it to youtube, they didnt make it so that you can play it on a phone

          • Jedi_Gunslinger

            Yeah makes a lot of sense to post a video of an upgrade for a phone and then not have that video be viewable by said phone… oops!! Lol

          • John

            There's an option when uploading videos to allow them on mobile devices. I too find it freakin strange to upload a video of a phone then not let it be played ON THAT VERY SAME PHONE haha

      • bonez

        Why cant I see this on my Droid

  • rals

    Give me some of that frozen treat now.

  • So… why isn't the home screen the updated Froyo one with Browser and Dialer shortcuts?

  • jstell

    I do not like the half-baked pin/password unlock; the onscreen keyboard, press “OK” to confirm, and slide to unlock first, is not innovative. It reminds me of Winmo, not Android.

  • Ray

    Best part is the background music to calm me down so I don't kill the ppl who have this. Lol

  • BeeJay

    You have to click “OK” to unlock?? ugh.

  • machinegun68

    Those are promising. Like to see Bluetooth dialing and Wifi hotspot as well.

    • Id be nice to finally get support on droid for alpine systems..

    • kellex

      Apparently this build does not have wifi tethering.

  • Ricky

    Kellex where is your 2.2 Droid? You can't let those guys over at MyDroidWorld out do you!

    • kellex

      Waiting for someone to send me a 2.2 build. 🙂

      • aczm1988

        So when u get the 2.2 build sent we get it too right lol :D?

        • kellex

          But of course.

  • jess

    Sigh. I need.

  • jt

    will someone anyone please give me this file or whatever it is so i can have froyo. i need it now

    • ??? really?

      • jt

        really what

        • You want what no one actually has dude… 😛

          • jt

            someone does apparently and they need to put it out for the rest of us.

  • so this is the real deal? Not a fake?

    • kellex

      Definitely real.

      • p3droid

        Kellex, plz pm me on my site,

        • machinegun68

          Uh oh, p3 is informing K that it's not real….:)

        • kellex

          PM sent!

      • Mrpicolas

        Its not in aosp yet it is emulated off the ask so not real already talked to koush and he said proper build will be here as soon as it hits aosp

        • Mrpicolas

          Edit. (Sdk )

        • kellex

          This is not patched together from the SDK. This is a leaked build from a friend of his. Allegedly. 🙂

          • Mrpicolas

            Who knows anymore cyanogen is in rebuild phase Pete stays quiet till he
