Motorola Droid X FroYo Source Code Released, Developers Go Wild

This isn't the first time the Droid X has had its source code revealed to the world, but it's a first for the frozen yogurt kind (MotoBlur-ridden as it may be). That's right - despite some acknowledged issues with the update, Motorola has decided the pressure of the GPLv2 license was too much to bear and handed over the source code for the Droid X's FroYo update. Hackers, developers, and anyone else interested, tinker away!

Real HDMI Dev Voluntarily Pulls App From Market Over Motorola Droid X Issues, Android Market Model

On September 30, developer gman announced he would be pulling his popular Droid X app Real HDMI from the market.

He provides 3 main reasons for having done so:

Issue #1 = Droid X 2.2 is broke and I can't fix it.

Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update Begins Rolling Out For Samsung Galaxy S - In The Nordic Region

We have good news and bad news for Samsung Galaxy S owners. The good: the Froyo update source code released a few days ago is now officially being rolled out by Samsung. The bad news: they're starting with the Nordic countries... then "gradually" moving across Europe, Asia, North America, Africa, and everyone else.

The word "gradually" isn't exactly encouraging, and neither is the fact that North America is towards the end of the list.

HTC Desire Z Joins Rank With The T-Mobile G2, Has Its Source Code Exposed To The World

Looks like T-Mobile's G2 isn't the only HTC-built Android device having its source code outed today - the Desire Z (better known as the international version of the G2) has just had its source code revealed as well.

We shouldn't expect to see anything too surprising here since the Desire HD, which runs the same new version of Sense UI, has already had its firmware leaked. However, rest assured we'll keep you posted just in case somebody over at xda-developers or the like discovers a gold nugget hidden inside the code.

Motorola: DROID X Has Froyo "Issues" - Fixes Coming... At Some Point

Motorola has acknowledged the complaints of a number of DROID X owners who have upgraded to Android 2.2 and are experiencing "issues" related to the update. Some of the issues are minor, but a couple (failure to boot, kernel panic) are definitely not. Motorola is saying the bugs have been squashed, but the fixes will be incorporated into a yet-to-be-announced "future software release." Here's what a Moto employee on the DROID X support forum had to say:

If you have already upgraded to 2.2 for Droid X, you have found some new capabilities.

Samsung Releases Galaxy S Froyo Update Source Code

This article deals with a couple of advanced topics. If you’re unfamiliar with some of the terms, hit up our primers here:

Today, Samsung updated its open-source portal with what seems to be the final Android 2.2 source code for JPM Galaxy S i9000s. This might not mean much right now to those of you running carrier-branded Galaxy S phones (Captivate, Vibrant, Epic 4G, Fascinate), but it is a positive indication of things to come and may mean that the Froyo ROMs for your handsets will be showing up sooner rather than later.

Dell: Streak Getting 2.2 Froyo Update "Much Sooner" Than December 31st

As you may be aware, Dell Streak owners have not exactly been sitting on the cutting edge of Android (the device runs 1.6 Donut) since the phone was released stateside. While a leaked and tweaked build of the UK version's 2.1 update has been floating around for a while now, the average user doesn't want to take the time or risk in using an unsupported software build.

But hear ye, hear ye - hope does yet live.

Motorola Droid 2 Gets Its First AOSP ROM - FRF91 Vanilla Android

The Motorola Droid 2 may ship with a pesky eFuse bootloader which has been designed specifically to prevent rooting of the phone, but little things like that have never held back the truly talented and passionate (and nerdy). The FRF91 Vanilla Android ROM - the Droid 2's first AOSP (Android Open Source Project) ROM - has just made an appearance on DroidForums.

What does this mean? Well, in and of itself, not much, but it's a huge step up from the device's previous ROMs, which brought little to no customizations.

T-Mobile myTouch 3G To Receive Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update Starting Tomorrow?

Well, this is interesting: TmoNews is claiming that the myTouch 3G will receive an update to Android 2.2 (Froyo) starting tomorrow. If true, the rollout will be staggered - beginning tomorrow and running until October 25. An important note, though: they provide absolutely no details on how they found this out, and the only image they use dates back to June when we heard the same damn thing.

TmoNews has a pretty decent record as update leaks go, but without any details, it's hard to know whether or not this is one to back.  Still, let's hope it's true - but take it with a grain of salt.
