Froyo (Android 2.2) Available for Download on Motorola Droid (Unofficially)

Don’t start celebrating just yet, as Froyo hasn’t just hit the Moto Droid in the official version, being ported over by a couple of hackers, instead. These folks are part of the MyDroidWorld community and they did the job: we’re talking about a fully functional ROM that used an Android 2.2 nandroid backup from a Nexus One.

The ROM improves performance on Motorola Droid and the people on Android Community have already started encouraging people to post benchmark scores, to see what improvements Froyo brings in real life. There’s also a downside to this story: the ROM misses WiFi support, a small price to pay for the nifty features of Froyo.

Flash works perfectly in the browser and when you first boot up, you’ll get a link that will take you to the market, allowing you install the needed software.
