    but they are one in the same... the OTA and what you manually used are identical.

    How did you manually install 2.1? Which ROM are you running?

    ok but i'm not sure if this is a problem with the live wallpaper and all but i do not have 5 screens nor the revised app drawer and when i long press apps in the app drawer to put them on the home screen the icon moves everywhere. you can see what i mean by opening something; try scrolling, then keep your finger still and then you can see the page wiggling up and down, that's what happens when i move around shortcuts

    you dont have 5 screens because there arent 5 screens in ESE81, just 3 like usual. and the app draw has not changed either. as far as the other wiggling...i have no idea what you are talking about. sorry.

    It's hard to read a big run on sentence.

    But if you used Trident's guide to force update to ESE81, you will gain nothing from flashing back to 2.0.1 and waiting for the "official" update.

    You're better off doing a factory reset.

    Going back to 2.0.1 depends on how you got to 2.1. So once we have that info we can get you back. I didnt think that five home screens was part of the update. Anyone correct me if I am wrong.

    It started with people wanting to go back to stock to get the same thing they already had, if not better.

    Do everyone a favor and make up your damn minds people. It wasn't like we didn't know what was coming in the update. I feel like I'm in a bad movie.

    If you think it's crazy now, what's going to happen when a developer finds a way to root 2.1? ;-)

    I'm hijacking
    Question: My buddy just forced the 2.1 ese81 update and now he wants to root.
    Can he go back to 2.01 just by doing a factory reset?
    then follow the normal root procedures. I hate to give him any advice before he has the ability to do a nandroid backup.

    factory reset will only take you to the clean startup of your current rom. so no that will not take him back to 2.0.1

    On the bright side, when you have to get back to basics like that you learn a lot about how the software on your phone works and are more comfortable playing around with it in future.

    I was a ROMaholic and I'm happy with the official 2.1 update ONLY because it has just enough cool features to keep me pacified. Afterall, I was mainly rooting/roming for the LWP, gallery, and improved browser and the official 2.1 has all of those things. Sure, I'll miss the custom themes, cache mate, Launcher2 etc but I'd much rather be plain vanilla stock 2.1 than to become a ROMaholic again. I have no discipline.
