The update the Motorola Droid will be receiving today, as unfortunate as it is, will not be Gingerbread. Instead, the OTA being pumped out, FRG83G, is Froyo based; 2.2.2 to be exact.
According to the update information, FRG83G just contains some bug fixes that should help some messaging problems popping up on some devices. Nonetheless, it’s incredibly impressive how devoted Verizon and Motorola have been to the original Droid. It’s been almost a year and half since the original release and the updates just keep on coming.
If you’d like to take those updates into your own hands, just go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates. If you want to take things even further into your own hands, check out this CyanogenMod 7 thread where you can begin to road to Gingerbread.
