Download: New Motorola DROID Froyo FRF84B Build

We broke the news yesterday that a select Motorola Droid test group was receiving Android 2.2 and it appears now, that the version hitting those devices has been leaked as build FRF84B.  Time to get your updated Droid Froyo on!

This is essentially a ROM as it has root included plus a custom kernel so it’s tough to call it “official,” but it’s pretty close.

*Currently for rooted users only.  Rooting instructions here.

Download:  UPDATED FRF84B BUILD HERE!

Instructions…

1.  Download the FRF84B-Released.zip file to your SD card.
2.  Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD card.”
3.  Navigate to the location you just downloaded the file to.
4.  Tap on the file.
5.  Check the box to create a backup in case something happens with the install.
6.  No need to wipe data and cache if coming from another Froyo ROM.
7.  Allow your phone to boot into recovery and work some magic.
8.  First reboot could take a while so be patient.
9.  Enjoy!

Drop your comments, questions or issues below!

We’ll have more coming as we have some time to play around with this new build.

    • Gattor33

      did you do a back up before you did this?? if so go back and restore your phone to the original settings and then try doing it again and follow some of the videos on you tube on how to root your DROID!!!

  • Gattor33

    please HELP!!!!!

  • Gattor33

    is there a way to do this on a mac computer

  • mattcrecelius

    Running BB v0.4 with Blue Energy theme on Chevy ulv 1.2ghz and everything looks great and is running smoothly

  • Firtermish

    GPS is not working for me either. Tried Bugless Beast v 0.3 and v 0.4 and in neither of them was I able to get GPS to work.

  • Gehobday

    followed all instructions, but now am in endless boot loop – HELP!!

    • Gehobday

      Worried that I now have a brick… is there a manual re-boot, prayer, pledge envelope, or something I can do??

      • Gehobday

        Recovered with CM, went back to back-up ROM… will wait for further inspiration…

  • Jayrod718

    GPS doesnt work. Any ideas? i had the frf57 and wiped and cache and loaded this.

    So this is an “Official” early build from Motorola? What kinds of features does it look like we might be getting in the DROID's Froyo update Kellex?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Travis-Royer/100000358962998 Travis Royer

    So, I happened to notice this morning that this 2.2 rom seems to be missing the “apps to SD” option in settings. Anybody else notice this? Or is it hidden somewhere and my powers of observation are zilch?

  • RealGame22

    Tested out the new build. At 500MHz I had gotten a score of 1009 'Quadrant'……WoW!!!

  • Sniper04

    Hi everyone.I'm your average joe here with just enough understanding to perform the tasks you outline on this site. You guys are great Droid!!!! on thing I want to bring up about this rom. After i installed it my dock (Multimedia dock) wont display the weather anymore. Also it goes to some screensaver after a few minutes. Not a deal breaker…just an fyi . Anyone else see this?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=708606259 Steven Gerbitz

    Okie dokie.. I did this all is great, but how do revert back to my stock android 2.1? Some of the apps, that I was using dont work =(

  • http://twitter.com/bnitty B Nitty Sr

    is there a reason i can't run my Black Ice theme with this OS because it just stays on the Motorola screen after it reboots from ROM Manager

  • Abmack

    does this feature wireless teathering?

    • Wojo

      Dont know but the new BB V0.4 does and it works flawlessly!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Roland-Hodge/1641108612 Roland Hodge

    onfuture builds can the dev people please program so that we get free tethering I like this build a lot but i will be needing tethering in the near future

  • locsta

    I was running frf84 bugless beast v0.3 and I upgraded to frf84b and then installed bugless beast v0.4 and now my 3d-like cube menu is gone. wassup wit that? how i get it back?

  • eddieonofre

    kellex kellex wake up drink some coffee and take ur droid
    Lord of the Roms Pete has just release the new BB v0.4 and of course is based on frf84b
    so it time to post about it to see what is new in this version I'm right now installing it.
    Pete + Droid = Froyo
    Droid + Droid Life = Complete Power Over The World… hahahahahaha
    well over our phoen at least, but tonight is the phone tomorrow the world!!!!!!

  • Josh121779

    BB v0.4 now available… with FRF84B.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=717620190 Brandon Yang

      do you need to wipe data & cache like it says? and what features does it have over the version that Kellex posted?

  • tonytbone7883

    Anybody know how to put in your name on the lock screen where it says “phone belongs to:” I can't find where to input your name.

  • eddieonofre

    I'm trying this build but I'm missing the Voice Recorder that BB does has.
    It pretty weird coz if u loos in the apps folder there is the app voice recorder? why this build and actually all teh other build have the SoundRocerder.apk but can not run it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Travis-Royer/100000358962998 Travis Royer

    YES! 2.2 is kickin' like kickin-wings!

  • Digbob

    Holy crap! I just looked in ROM manager, and Pete already has BB v.4 up with the frf84b build… I just got v.3 yesterday, and it rocks… cant wait to see what this one can do

  • http://twitter.com/speakercode tim j

    This is wonderful – I am already 2x as fast as my rooted 2.1 was. Beautiful!

    However, is anyone else still having the market missing app problem with this, specifically MLB At-Bat? I tried the fix a few times and it didn't work. Any ideas? Did people who had an earlier build of froyo, installed the fix, and then updated with this build, are you having the market problem?

    My thought is to flash a lower build, flash the fix, then flash this ROM. Ideas?

    • http://twitter.com/radster24 rad phil

      titanium backup off a old rom with mlb back it up and restore it in the existing rom

      • http://twitter.com/speakercode tim j

        thanks Phil! I thought of that…after I went over to installing BB0.4, now it's super smooth, all apps there, but likely because I restored things with titanium — although it seems that BB has fixed the market issue as it showed up no problem.

  • aarynk

    I tried this one out this morning but the problem with some apps not showing in the market again made me switch back to BB V0.3 with Nex Theme…

    Bugless was running better on my phone anyways plus I was getting better linpack 17.2 average and Quadrant scores of close to 1400. This new leak made those scores suffer

    Thanks for posting the leak though! It was ok on my phone but Bugless all the way right now for me!!

  • Plzkkthx

    Sry but … where can i get that background for my desire?? :)

  • SecurityNick

    Tried it for about 30 seconds, then went back to good 'ole Blueberry Kangerade from JRummy. Side bar: Anyone else notice that Disqus doesn't really like Droid? I can't ever get it to sign in and the screen never sizes right.

    • lakerzz

      Same here, and somebody told me to try a different browser to no avail…I even tried setting my browser to be detected as desktop…again to no avail…I have to wait until I get home from work to comment. I thought maybe it was just my particular Droid, or maybe just me..Idk

      • Chris Nimon

        i had that problem so I went to disqus website (on my droid) and signed in there. I have not had a single problem since.

        • lakerzz

          Cool, thanks a lot Cris…I'll try that.

        • lakerzz

          Just commented from my “good 'ol” Droid….it worked, thanks again Chris!!

          • Chris Nimon

            Glad it worked. I just realized last week i could get txt notifications when someone commented on one of my posts. I kinda felt like an idiot so i thought id put that info out in case anybody could use it.

          • lakerzz

            Just when I thought my Droid couldn't get any better…it just did, and my girlfriend is going to hate my Droid even more…haha

  • http://twitter.com/ncoulombe Nathan Coulombe

    Any note on what actually changed?

    • eddieonofre

      on the build name only
      lol
      I haven't found any real difference
      I would say so far that the BB V0.3 is better (it has more stuff like nexus one live wall, DI ringtones, BBToolkit, etc)
      But ill play with this versin for a while to see if is worthy other wise I'll go back to BB

      Lord of The Droid Pete what about a new BB with this Build??

  • thegod

    CAN ANYBODY UP THE Neural Network Live Wallpaper with Google Colors FROM THE LAST FROYO BY PETE

  • easy21

    First and my first also

  • JDub429

    Define “First reboot could take a while…” please. I tried to install it and my phone sat at the M logo for about 20 minutes. Then did a battery pull and restarted my phone, everything was normal. Should I wipe cache? I'm really not sure what Rom i'm using. My build is FRFxxx 33333 test build. Could that be the problem?

    • friedricho

      To see what Rom you are using go to settings – about phone – then to bottom where it says build number. I had trouble installing through rom manager so after I had the file downloaded I booted directly into recovery and installed from there.

      • JDub429

        I'll try booting directly from recovery. I put my build number. It's been awhile since I've installed ROMs or themes so I couldn't remember which it was or where I got it. I'll update with what happens just so people will know since everyone is so concerned! ;P

        • JDub429

          So far when I try to go into recovery I'm still stuck on the M logo. Holding X and waiting I'm stuck. I believe what I did was installed one of the earliest versions of Froyo that was on DL. Hence the build FRFxxx 33333test build? I then installed droptheme through metamorph on top of it. So from ROM manager using that recovery and SPF recovery or trying to go through reboot recovery I get stuck on the M logo. I think I'm just going to wipe my phone and try to install this over top. My phone still works and everything I just don't seem to be able to install a newer version cause I can't go into recovery. Any other suggestions?

          • http://androiddelight.com/ Audio

            No matter what recovery you are using you get stuck on the M logo? Did you flash SP recovery and then re-flash ClockworkMod recovery?

          • JDub429

            Yes, I did. I flashed SP tried to recover..then battery pulled and reflashed CM and tried again. No good.

          • friedricho

            Flash a few times then go into Rom manager and choose REBOOT INTO RECOVERY. Sometimes that works for me when all else fails (like holding x).

          • JDub429

            No luck for me. I'm gonna wipe tomorrow i think.

          • Stiwrx07

            you have to flash clockwork like 3 times then flash sbrecovery like 3 times just flash it over and over lol. then do reboot into recovery it worked for me

          • French

            This is crazy…..ROM manager seems not to work reliably. I get the same thing as many others. I go through all the steps and………. Nothing.. same FRF57.

          • Jstrege34

            I am stuck at the M logo as well. Any help out there?

          • JDub429

            http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs0

            Here's what I'm working with. Tried a factory wipe from settings…stuck on M logo. It seems as though my recovery is broken? I'm really not sure. Like I said…I can still use it everything is working fine except for the updating the FRF part. Can't get into recovery to wipe, install, or anything.

      • JDub429

        So far when I try to go into recovery I'm still stuck on the M logo. Holding X and waiting I'm stuck. I believe what I did was installed one of the earliest versions of Froyo that was on DL.

    • http://twitter.com/ncoulombe Nathan Coulombe

      You aren't sure which ROM you're using? WTF? You were the one to install it, right?

      • JDub429

        I know I know….noob I am. See following post…

  • bigstick23

    how is the signal strengh for calls on this ROM is it better than the leaked version of Froyo, because the leaked version drops some calls for me but everything else is good

    • eddieonofre

      I didnt have any signal problem with any of the froyo roms so far. I installed the frf57, frf83 by pete (BB V0.1) and this new one FRF84b and I havent seen any problem with the signal

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jason-Townsend/1046911178 Jason Townsend

        I started having signal problems too…but not until after I ran the baseband update…before that everything was fine…

  • drew wegamnd

    I like it! All I need now is and overclock kernel anyone wanna help me out with that?

  • El El Kool J

    I am running this now.. Seems to be running smoothly.. and very fast too. Needs some themes though..

  • Carlo

    I have to say I’m running bb 0.3 w/ lv-125-1ghz kernel and the new and improved nexus theme and my Droid is loving it and so am I!

    My latest quadrant score is just under 1300 and my linpack scores slightly over 15mflops!

    Also, this new kernel seems to have nearly tripled my wifi download speed. I would get on average 3.5mbps, but now I get close to 9mbps! Wifi does hang for a few seconds before it kicks in but it flies like a rocket!

    This was definitely worth the wait!!

  • bigstick23

    How is the call quality with this build, I know the first leaked version of Froyo the signal strength wasn't all that great, which caused me to drop some calls.

    • tonytbone7883

      Did you install 1.43 baseband? That should improve call quality. This build comes with 1.43 it seems so your call quality should improve

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jason-Townsend/1046911178 Jason Townsend

        after I updated to 1.43 I started having trouble with my signal…usually only on calls, but in some places I usually have great signal…I now have none…

  • tonytbone7883

    Whats the difference? Any new kicks and giggles or is it pretty much the same. My FRF57 2.2 is working great, should i change it?

    • eddieonofre

      seems to be faster…. but that is pretty much all the diferences I have found.
      Another thing that seems to have is better use of the Ram memory
      I use Home++ and before every time I kill all the app that where running I end up with some 80ish free memory but now seem I get to 90ish free memory.

      • tonytbone7883

        I'm running FRF57 with a P3 1.25GHz kernel, launcher-Pro 6.3, and Black Ice from Chaos, and it's running really smooth and no issues. I think I'll wait a couple of days…. :)

        • eddieonofre

          are u running that on the Droid???
          when I got the build frf57 I set it to 1Ghz and it in end up freezing after a while tried with 900Mhz same. So i just stay with 800MGz and still smooth but sure on 1MGh is even smoother

          • tonytbone7883

            Yeah, Droid. FRF57 … I'm running FRF57 with a P3 1.25GHz kernel, launcher-Pro 6.3, and Black Ice from Chaos. I wish I knew how to post it on the web I would

          • tonytbone7883

            I set my CPU 700 min and 1100 max. Seems to work.

          • tonytbone7883

            I set my CPU 700 min and 1100 max. Seems to work.

          • eddieonofre

            700 to 1100…. maybe that was my bad to leave the min on 250 and set the max to 1000
            but I dont want my phone. I might try to do that. But before one question… how long does ur battery last? I think if you set it like that the battery wont last a whole day am I wrong?

          • tonytbone7883

            It actually depends if i use my Flash 10.1 allot, If I'm watching allot of flash video then it won't last very long but normal use it will last a day easy. I always carry a spare battery anyway. http://www.cellphoneshop.com and bought one for 22.00 and a charger for the battery only for 7.99. Works out good. Never had to use spare battery yet. :)

      • tonytbone7883

        I just ran my Quadrant. 1371

        • eddieonofre

          But I'm pretty sure that is not on the Moto Droid, If im not wrong the Moto Droid only supports up to 1Ghz

          • tonytbone7883

            I just ran quadrant again but set my CPU to 1100 min and 1250 max and it hit 1570, :O nice. I may stay at 700 min and 1100 max just to be safe.

  • PyroHoltz

    I'm waiting for CyanogenMod v6, bring it on Koush.

  • Chris Nimon

    Im waiting till the fully functional roms from this build come out. Im sure it wont be long but I have everything working right now with jrummys first build and pulled a 1739 on quadrant.
