The Froyo parade continues. Yesterday HTC Evo 4G users started to report that they were getting over the air updates bringing Google Android 2.2 Froyo to their handsets. Today updates are starting to roll out to Motorola Droid users on Verizon.

If you’re not the patient sort, you don’t have to wait for the update to magically appear. Some users have discovered the source of the file needed to update the operating system.

Droid Life has posted step by step instructions for downloading and installing the Android 2.2 Froyo update on your phone right now. No waiting required.

Of course, you should probably proceed with caution. If there’s one thing I learned by constantly applying pre-release updates to my Nexus One, it’s that just because we think we’ve found the correct update file doesn’t mean we actually have. My phone never exploded or anything, but it would have been a lot safer to just wait for Google to push the update over the air.
