Is Android 2.2 for the DROID Still Coming Tomorrow?

There hasn’t been much chatter surrounding Android 2.2 on the Motorola Droid after that whole 2.1 debacle, but tomorrow is the 13th, and the rumored release day.  We had expected more rumors to leak if this date were to hold up, and so far we’ve heard absolutely nothing.  Does that mean it won’t start to roll out in the morning?  Not necessarily.  Did Verizon do a better job of keeping this one under wraps?  Perhaps.  Would they do an Eris update the same week?  Would be a first.

As a reminder and to keep our hopes high, we can look back to the 2.1 update that surprised almost all of us once the OTA flow finally started.  Maybe Verizon simply has update word on lockdown?  We’ll be on watch tomorrow anyway!

And to those of you that are running stock 2.1, let us know if you see anything!

    I called Verizon not too long ago and the cust rep said the Droid X and Droid “1” will be updated at the same time at the end of the month/beginning of August.

    Some of us lucky people are beta testing Froyo. Just a note: It will end the life cycle of rooting forever once the OTA comes out. It is faster and the flash integration is nice, but if you really like your DROID built the way you want, think twice before you update to the official version when it is released.

    July 15th 9:30AM EST and NOTHING YET!!!!!!
    Just got off the phone with Verizon asking for an early upgrade to Droid X — DENIED!!!!!!
    I can do it in 2 more months. Hopefully the Froyo comes soon, because I'm driving myself crazy. I can't root my Droid with my mac, and work has limitations on what I can install. I feel I'm the only one without a rooted Droid, but I will this weekend when I have some time and go to my buddy's house.
    2.2 HURRY!!!!!!!!!!!!
