Download: Newer Motorola Droid Froyo Leak FRF57

Who wants a full Motorola Droid Android 2.2 build instead of just a ROM?  A big “thanks” needs to go out to DroidMod and Alldroid for leaking and cracking this new build first.  Yes, this is newer than the build you had on Saturday.  This comes with the stock kernel that can actually be overclocked to 800Mhz, the wifi works out of the box, and is as legit as it comes.  There is nothing hidden about this Froyo.

Again, huge thanks to to those that had this first.

Unfortunately, the original version did not have root access, so we’ve tossed in root and created our own nandroid for you to flash.  In a way, it’s almost like the Droid Life Froyo build.  (Funny.)

*Reminder* – You have to be rooted to do this.  New to rooting? Follow our full guide here.

Download:  droidlifefroyo-BS-20100608-0521.zip



*Note 2* -If you are coming from the previous Froyo build, you do not need to wipe data and cache.  If this is your first time getting Froyo’d, please perform a factory reset before step 5 in recovery.

1.  Download the new nandroid Froyo build from above.
2.  Unzip and drop folder in the “nandroid” folder on your SD card.
3.  Open ROM Manager and flash “alternate recovery” (SPRecovery).
4.  When it finishes, scroll up and choose the option to “Reboot into Recovery.”
5.  When SPRecovery loads, choose “backup/restore.”
6.  Choose “Advanced nandroid restore.”
7.  Select “Choose backup” and find the “droidlifefroyo-BS-20100608-0521” backup.
8.  Select “Perform restore.”
9.  When it finishes, hit the “power” key to go back to the main menu and choose “reboot.”
10.  When it reboots, you should be Froyo’d with root!

Questions or comments?  Chrome to Phone time!

Updates: Time to answer some questions from the comments…

-Q: Is this stable?
-A: Yes it is. We wouldn’t post it if it wasn’t.

-Q:  I lost root! Now what?
-A: Boot into recovery and apply this update.zip.

-Q:  Can this be overclocked?
-A:  Yes.  The previous kernels we posted should all work.

-Q:  Is this the same build as the one posted everywhere last night?
-A:  No idea.  I got this from the original leak.

-Q: Will the previous radio update work?
-A: Yes it should still work.

-Q: What does “unrar” mean?
-A: Unraring is like unzipping.

Cheers to Wade for helping me out with this!  Go buy xScope.

  • Maddoxmisery

    so i have a huge problem now and i have no idea what i did wrong.

    the phone powers itself off when it starts up and doesn't respond to me hitting the power button. like it has gone through the entire process starting up, then blinks off and i'm unable to start it for hell like an hour. i thought it could be battery drain or something..so i charged it for a few hours. still having trouble powering up.

    i did your first step on rooting 2.1. followed to the letter. fired up rom manager and wanted to get bugless beast and a new kernel…i fell asleep waiting for bugless to download. i wake up and i have this weird..i guess bricked phone now…no clue what to do..so i desperately need help. i can't get it powered into recovery..seeing as i can't power up at all now…

    i'm screwed.

    • Mrpicolas

      Leave it on the charger For at least an hour Then try booting into recovery When the battery is low You will sometimes have a problem

  • Does anyone know how I can get the ringtone that comes default with this? I like it a lot and can't find it now that I upgraded to BB0.4 :[ Help would be appreciated! :]

  • Cahollow

    Ever since I updated to 2.2 (both this build and a previous one) my Droid will often display the symbol like its syncing to/from Google servers on the cloud and totally lock up. Sometimes if I wait it goes away, sometimes the phone just reboots and sometimes I just have to jack the battery out of the back and reboot (often 2 or 3 times) before the phone stabilizes and is useful. Anyone else run into this?

  • Rbotelho76

    • At0msplat

      I tried this and I still have Flash Alternate recovery greyed out. I downloaded the file and and droped the 3 files into the droidlife floder in the nandroid folder. I have in the nandroid folder which is is in the root on sdcard,
      there is also 2 other folders in nandroid folder, BDS-20100808-1939 & BDS-20100809-2224. I dont think these are stopping it but maybe? Anyone have any other suggestions?
