Update Your Droid 1 To Get Flash Player From The Market Right Now!

Posted: August 26, 2010 in Droid 1

Everyone was highly disappointed when Froyo finally got pushed OTA to the Droid 1, only to find out it didn’t support the Flash player.  Well in reality it did support it, but it wasn’t discoverable in the Android market.  With that, they’ve finally started pushing out the FRG22D update that will enable Droid 1 users, among other things, to install the Flash player directly from the market.

If you don’t feel like waiting for the OTA update to hit your phone, we’ve got the link directly from Google themselves if you want to update manually.

This is for non-rooted users only! You will lose root if you update this way!

  • Start by downloading your update file from Google here.
  • Rename the file to Update.zip once it’s downloaded.
  • Plug your phone into your computer, and mount it as a USB device.
  • Copy the update.zip file to the root of your SDCard (so if you’re phone shows as drive E:\ on your computer, the file should be located at E:\update.zip)
  • Unplug and power off your phone.
  • Holding down the X key on the physical keyboard, power your phone back on (keeping the X key held down)
  • Once you see a triangle with an exclamation in it, hit the volume up and camera button at the same time.
  • Using the d-pad on the keyboard scroll to the menu option that says “Apply Update.zip”
  • Press the gold button in the center of the d-pad to start installing the update.
  • Sit back and let it install
  • When it says it’s complete, use the d-pad to scroll up to reboot phone, and the gold button again to select it.
  • You’re phone will reboot and you’ll be updated!
