For those of you who have Froyo (FRG01B) on your Droid already, why not root it? UnstableApps has updated their application EasyRoot on the Android Market to root Android 2.2 on the Motorola Droid/Milestone and the Motorola Droid X.
Why root Froyo? Plenty of reasons: BusyBox, Drocap, WiFi Tether, Custom Roms (although I prefer vanilla Froyo). All of these are also included with EasyRoot! Just a few more taps and you can install all of these awesome apps from the EasyRoot UI:
And if you're just not sure you want to take the plunge, there's always the option to unroot with 1 tap right in the EasyRoot app. What's the down side? The app isn't free... it costs $0.99 on the Android Market. I'm sure it's justifiable to spend $0.99 on this app to unleash the real potential of your Droid.
To download EasyRoot click here from your Android Device or search the Android Market for EasyRoot from UnstableApps!
Google has suspended this application from the Android Market, so Unstable Apps has put the app out on the internet!

Google has introduced a revolutionary new way to develop applications for Android, and they've named it App Inventor. Currently in the beta stage, App Inventor is an extremely simple way of creating simplistic Android applications using a web based interface. App Inventor reminds me a lot of Alice (software used to teach basic programming skills using 3D animations www.alice.org) requiring virtually no knowledge of programming or software development to create a fully functional Android application.
