As expected, Verizon has started rolling out the second over the air update for Motorola Droid handsets this month. The first update brought Android 2.2 Froyo to the Droid. This update patches a few security issues, but the most noticeable change is that it adds support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1.

That means after you install the FRG22D update, you should be able to visit the Android Market, download Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for Android and view web pages with Flash content to your heart’s content. Well, as long as your heart has realistic expectations, anyway. Not every web site with Flash is optimized for viewing on a mobile device. But the update should still dramatically increase the amount of web content you can display properly on a Motorola Droid.

You can find more details about the update, plus step by step instructions for installing the update once it’s pushed to your phone, at Verizon’s Droid support page.

  1. Flash already worked on 2.2, I was able to install a leaked .apk onto my droid. Does anyone know if this update removed root access?
