That "special project" Motorola announced for the DROID is not an upgrade to Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich. It's just two security patches that are essentially “invisible” in terms of device operation. Motorola caused a stir when they asked some DROID owners to test out a new upgrade for the device.
Motorola revealed on Friday the real reason for the update:
"Thanks very much for signing up to give feedback about your Motorola Droid. You will be testing final software for Droid. This is a very limited update providing two security patches for the device. It should be essentially “invisible” in terms of device operation."
