Android 2.2 for rooted Droid users is available to download now

4 years ago 44

To be certain that there is no confusion I want to point out that this is not an official download from Google as we saw with the Nexus One, but all reports are indicating that it is a solid build of Froyo that My Droid World has brought to the Droid owning masses.

WiFi was the one major feature originally missing, but a fix for that is also now available in the instructions below.

As per usual with these things proceed at your own risk and don’t come crying to us if you wind up with a bricked phone.

If you aren’t quite up for giving this a shot remember that you can subscribe to this thread on the Moto support forums to be updated as soon as there is more official info on Froyo for the Droid.

These files are nandroid backups. You must download them, extract them, and then place in the appropriate folder.

ROM is already rooted with new SuperUser installed.

5) Go to Backup/Restore, select advanced restore, select the above folder and press the camera button.

Ok, now you should be running Froyo without wifi which might be fine with you, but if not you’ll just need to head here to download a new overclocked kernel which should get your WiFi up and running in no time.

Early reports have definitely been positive, but if you decide to give this a shot let us know what you think in comments.
