Motorola Droid owners can join the Froyo parade now that the update file for Android 2.2 has been located. Yes, you too can grab Froyo right now without waiting anxiously for Verizon to send it to your phone. Who wants to check their phone every 20 minutes anyway? Not you, of course.

One enterprising individual found the download link and it has already spread across the web with plenty of mirror options for you to grab it. You can apply the update fairly easily by following these steps. (Please be aware this is for the Motorola Droid. Do NOT attempt to load this on a Canadian or European Motorola Milestone).

Looks like the Android distribution chart will probably undergo quite a bit of revisions in the next couple of weeks.
