Official Flash Player 10.1 coming to Motorola Droid tomorrow

Verizon will deliver a new OTA update (build FRG22D) to the Motorola Droid starting tomorrow which will finally bring Flash Player 10.1 to the device, according to our friend Kellen over at Droid Life.

Unlike the recent HTC EVO update, Flash Player 10.1 will not be bundled with the 1.6 MB software update. Instead users will have to search the Android Market for “Flash Player 10.1″ and install it from there, similar to how the Nexus One received it.

If you absolutely can’t wait till tomorrow, there is a leaked version of the latest Flash 10.1 floating around that works with the Droid as long as you already have Android 2.2. It is the same version that’s available for the Nexus One (10.1.92.8) and those who installed it report it works, but I would suggest waiting another 24 hours and downloading it from the official Market.

      Mytouch is more than likely not going to receive froyo or flash for that matter that is why the G2 is going to run froyo. Same goes for the Devour for Verizon it’s like beating a dead dog, I would either jump ship and go to Verizon or get your hands on a G2 Good Luck

        I know. It’s just irritating. It’s like being on the playground basketball court waiting to get picked and you see everyone around you getting picked. LOL

    It’s already on the Market for me. I am on a custom ROM, but it’s still Froyo.
    I assumed stock Droids already had Flash by now. Either way, they’re still several months late deploying a feature that was advertised from the beginning.

    i want to know if anyone knows if its worth or any different if i do the official update. i got teh notification on the 19th. So is it worth it to unroot and jump on the stock one? Or will the developers be able to use that update to enable the JIT compiler and hardware accelaration and all that other good stuff along with the improved flash?

      It’s not Google having trouble, it’s the manufacturers being slow. The phone companies aren’t helping much either…
