    Funny.. I'd been waiting for it for so long, and now that I have a custom ROM installed, I really have no more interest in the official 2.1 update :( Booo. Still though, I'm sure this will make a lot of people happy.

    Motorola, you masters of double entendre you.

    Well, soon as we get our hands on that update.zip, the devs will be able to tear out all the good stuff and incorporate it into future ROMs.

    Anyways, good news for everyone who's been anticipating this.

    For us root users do we have to wait for someone to upload a version of the update that won't break root? Or do we just have to wait until they find a new exploit for root

    Now that's one thing I am looking forward to. When the community devs start rolling out 2.1 based versions of their ROMs, it can only get better. I'm definitely steering clear of the official update though.

    Okay, can we all stay positive and stop with this the OFFICIAL is a joke stuff? Seriously, this is very positive for everyone who is not rooted and it's good to see that that were finally getting it even if it is rumored to be a 2.1 with half the goodies...

    But hey, if you're going to ***** about it, just root like me and everyone else who can have a developer make it go 1 ghz! ;)

    Anyways, very good news!! :)

    why on earth would they not include live wallpapers for the Droid 2.1 update? sorry, i spend most of my time on the Eris forum. maybe this has been discussed quite a bit. now i'm wondering how much longer before the Eris gets a 2.x update. guess it's more dependant on what HTC is doing.

    Im actually kinda mad about this, I wont be getting my droid until next Monday. I hope that phone wont come loaded with 2.1, it would also suck if the guy at the VZW store does the OTA update for me without asking. I planned on rooting it right when I get it.

    It probably won't come preloaded with it unless someone unboxes and turns on the phone before you get there, which shouldn't happen. Just make sure the reps don't do the OTA update. Tell them you know how to set the phone up and you'll do it yourself. Of course, don't mention the rooting part ;)

    They just released specs and video of the HTC Incredible (Endgadget), which includes the Sense UI version of 2.1. This means that 2.1 is ready for Sense UI based devices and they will likely push it out via OTA. The only question is when.

    Leaked, not released. Meaning it may not be ready just yet.

    Same here...Just installed Bugless Beast last night w/950 mhz OC...

    So the question now is : Will rooted phones get the OTA and break root? If not, that would be great. I'd rather decide if I want to do 2.1 on my own..

    I thought rooted Heroes were running Sense 2.1 for ages now anyways. The Incredible looks cool, but if you're talking about Sense 2.1 devices, the Supersonic is the one to beat.

    I would (maybe) leave my Droid for that device, if it ever found its way onto VZW.

    Anyways, as for now, it's just a waiting game for Moto/VZW to start pushing this update. First person to upload the .zip file will get a big hug from me :D

    (Actually, when someone receives it if they don't mind I'd appreciate a pm, then maybe post here saying you did, so I don't get a bunch. ..thanks in advance!)
