Motorola Droid Users – Manual Upgrade to Froyo FRG01B Firmware

Motorola Droid Users – Manual Upgrade to Froyo FRG01B Firmware

Aug 5, 2010

Impatient to get Android 2.2 (Froyo) running on your Motorola Droid? Nexeo has a simple and straightforward guide on how to load firmware version FRG01B on to your device, regardless of its root status. This update, when the post was first made, was set to be the live version of Froyo that would be pushed over the air by Motorola and Verizon in the following weeks. As this is a legitimate update, there’s no concern with this version having any problems updating to any over the air patches or newer firmware down the line. As a word of warning, you update at your own risk, but having your device plugged in and the battery connected should be enough to sail smoothly forward into Froyo land.

We’re hearing reports that this version is already undergoing a patch which is notated as FRG22 and weighs in at around 1.6mb. You may receive this update immediately after installing FRG01B but personally I’ve yet to receive it. Whether or not Verizon and Motorola will swap out FRG01B with a version already patched with FRG22 is still not clear, but I’ve yet to experience any major issues that would leave me hungry for that update.
