So you have been waiting for Froyo on your droid? Nexus has had it a while, you just sat back and waited, and waited, and then tweeted about waiting, well it finally came with a decently stable release candidate and then the magic started to happen, people made new kernels, modified it and hooked it up with ALL the goodies, Pete is one of those that did just that, he has released his Froyo Beast V0.1. Now mind you, this isn’t just something you can load to the phone like an update.zip! It will require Rom Manager and/or clockwork mod!

This is not in ROM Manager yet, but should be soon.
Update: Believe it is now!
1. Download Bugless Beast Froyo V0.1 from one of the links above to your SD Card.
2. Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD Card.”
3. Navigate to the folder that has the BB Froyo file you just downloaded and tap on it.
4. Probably a good idea to check the box to make a backup.
5. It’s up to you if you want to check the box to “wipe data and cache.”
I came from FRF57 Froyo and this new BB installed just fine. However, if you run into issues, flash your backup, re-install BB with at least one wipe.
6. Allow your phone to boot into recovery, work some magic and BAM! Done!

I have used petes beasts before, they are solid roms and the dude really takes his time so this should be NO different, he adds great features, seen above and removes some things that many people rarely use and they can easily be added back via the market.
Check these features out, they are called scripts and do a lot
