Verizon is pushing another software update for Motorola Droid, no it is not Gingerbread but certainly a step towards it. Big Red is updating Droid to Android 2.2 with FRG83G release. The update is already available OTA to stock Droid users.  FRG83G is a small 3.4MB download that once installed will fix a text messaging bug.

Sorry to get your hopes up. This is not Gingerbread. This is breaking news that Motorola and Verizon are rolling out a OTA update for the Original Droid to Android 2.2.2 This is a small 3.4MB update that will bring your device up to Android 2.2.2 the latest version of FroYo. If any of you Droid users are on stock firmware you should be getting the OTA starting today 3/9, with it being completely rolled out to all users by 3/17. Go to menu>settings>about phone> and click System Updates.

For those that got excited and thought this was Gingerbread, Sorry. I do have some Gingerbread here for you to keep all our readers happy. If you would like to try some Android 2.3 Gingerbread on your Motorola Droid now, go ahead and get yourself some CyanogenMod 7. You can learn about it here with download links at the bottom of a story we mentioned earlier today. CyanogenMod 7 Android 2.3 RC2. Next up is Honeycomb, if anyone takes the CyanogenMod 7 jump, be sure to check out our CM7 gets you as close to Honeycomb as possible story also. 

I am sure fellow Motorola Droid owners would much rather here news of an update bringing our handsets up to Gingerbread, but with no word on whether or not the phone that kicked things up a notch for Android will ever receive an upgrade to the latest version of the OS we may just have to settle for an update to Android 2.2.2, which has begun rolling out today. The update is labeled as FRG83G, the build of  Froyo that was last seen on the Nexus One before it received its calling to Android 2.3.3.

FRG83G is a small 3.4MB download that once installed will fix a text messaging bug that resulted in the phone displaying a message other than the one selected and in some cases sending messages to the wrong recipient. Nothing major, but certainly nothing to complain about.

Now the questions is: could this be the final update the Motorola Droid receives? Or is it still destined for bigger and better things?
