    I want to trend the droid 2.1 release to see if it's being released by geographic location, state, SID, etc. So as the title says post here once you get the update notice and if you don't mind put in what city, state, and area code your phone is from. Not necessarily where you are physically located. non root only please

    ALSO! Please try and remember to follow the instruction set here:
    PLEASE READ: Reguarding the 2.1 Update for the Motorola Droid
    This will allow others to do the update manually!:D

    We established last time (2.0.1) that updates are distributed randomly and have no pattern based omg geographic location, area code, or any serial number.

    Yeah, unfortunately only 1,000 will get it today... Here is the official schedule:

    Software Schedule:
    Below is the software-upgrade notification schedule (All times listed are Eastern Time.):

    • At noon on 3/18, 1,000 users will receive notification of the update.
    • At 11:59 PM on 3/18, 9,000 more users will receive the update notification.
    • After the first 10,000 users receive the update on 3/18, there will be a 24-hour period when no additional upgrades will be delivered.
    • On Day 3 (3/20), 200,000 users will receive the update notification at 11:59 PM. This schedule will continue each day thereafter until the update has been delivered to all users.

    The information you posted says that 10,000 people will get it today. Did you even read it?

    Somebody better save the update.zip file! My guide to force installing it is ready.. all I'm waiting for is the file. I have 2 servers set up to host the file as well. Please PM as soon you get it. I will then provide you with my email address so you can send me the file.

    I have used LeapFILE | Easy Secure File Transfer to transfer large docs at work. I believe there is a free trial as well.

    Seeing as how it's 11, wouldn't one of us have gotten it if we were going to get it today?

    You can do it over stock 2.01 rooted and it will just unroot you. If you have a custom rom installed, do NOT install the update. It will corupt your phone, most likely.

    That wouldn't be a bad idea.
