Motorola Droid with Android 2.2 Froyo update now, (unofficial)

For all Froyo lovers owning a Motorola Droid, there is good news! The site mydroidworld.com has come up with a way by which the user can gain root privileges, and install the unofficial Froyo update on their Motorola Droid. This clearly shows that it does not take much time for the hackers to find out the way to fit unofficial updates on their Android devices.

Though Motorola has planned to officially release the Froyo update for the Motorola Droid soon (“few weeks”), for the users who cannot wait till then, the site mydroidworld.com has unofficially released the update. This Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Droid has not been provided by Google or Motorola, so it is advisable to try out the update at your own risk. One must know what they shall do and its side-effects, before they do it.

The update, when it was initially released by these mydroidworld.com guys, was not accompanied by the support for Wi-Fi. The page instructs all the users to perform backups before performing this update and this reads as below: “Disclaimer: At this time the kernel has been changed to protect the original source, (you loose wifi). The original file has everything working at this point in time.

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

But now, after some time of hard work by them, they have come up with a fix to the problem. Now the update does support Wi-Fi capabilities and overclocking. The CPU speed has been hard-coded into the kernel, thus different update files are available for different versions based on the clock speed, varying from 800 MHz to 1250 MHz. You need to select the one which seems stable enough.
