    Also I cant install APPS2SD, or wifitether, or anything else that needs root.
    And I tried to load a G1 rom and it didn't do anything.

    Anyone actually use eclipse adb and debug mode for this to verify? Like I said before, I'm holding off for a while, this is my only phone. Even if the su install is fine, I don't want any bugs or user mistakes.

    Now if i had a second droid, or if someone could figure out how to install in the emulator, that would great, and I could go to town and help out with massive *nix knowingz

    I just successfully updated to 2.0.1 through the SD card/recovery console - freaking sweet, no waiting for OTA! Works perfectly, the screens/menus feel much more responsive.

    Wait...so Google just left the update lying around on their servers? Holy balls I'm tempted to do this. Can anybody verify this is as legit?
