    quit being a douche ...... smartass comments are much more unnecessary than a guy asking a question that has been asked . Really how productive are YOU being . first by bumping the same thread you have a problem with to the top again(counterproductive), second you didnt even answer the mans question. You internet police kill me , get over yourself.

    thanx to the mods for merging threads BTW. just can't stand it when people can't even take 5 seconds to look at the current topics on the top lol. i would be more sympathetic if they had to dig at least 1 page back but these topics are all on the top!

    Quick question, will rooting the device affect further updates (ie. Android 2.1 in Jan) or be affected by updates?

    Or even receive the update to start with?

    Edit: Sorry, probably wrong thread. But if you can answer, that'd be great ;)

    If you root you will no longer get update notifications (at least that's what the dudes who are familiar with rooting have said).

    You'd need to get and install a custom ROM based on the 2.1 (or whatever) update...

    Cool, then I'm upgrading now... :D

    Edit: So upgrading would be just like this upgrade is now, then, I suppose.

    I didn't download the version that's on rapidshare or the other file sharing sites. The actual link to the update on the Google servers is floating around. If you download that one directly from Google, it's going to be the same update that your phone is going to get from Verizon.

    I downloaded the version from the links on the main page of phandroid and everything seems to be working.

    The only issue I have right now is call volume.

    Linked images need to be accessible from the internet. I wouldn't suggest linking a pic from your desktop, that would be really bad. Picasa would be a better location.

    So I just got my phone lastnight (love it more then an BB) but it seems I still haven't gotten the update so perhaps I'm thinking its just gonna take some time to show the update, considering I've only have had it for less then 24 hours..I checked to make sure my phone didn't come with the new OS but it still says 2.0.. any opinions why I didn't get the update?

    Thanks, Shawn

    Probably because you weren't a part of the small minority of owners who received the update. More are coming during the remaining days of this week.

    Yeah I am still waiting for my update as well. Not sweating it though because I was already mentally planning to wait til Friday so it's all good. Of course i could jump on the bandwagon and manually apply the update but why bother. My Droid is awesome now and will be awesome x2 come Friday! :)

    Great attitude!!! I also think the phone is pretty darn good before the update.. I think people expect WAAAAAYYYY too much from a smartphone and especially considering the fairly new software matched to a fairly new phone design.. Of course I am excited about the update but I am still getting used to the phone the way it is and learning what works for me and doesnt.. People need to relax a little..

    What does being a former BB user have to do with receiving the update?

    I installed it earlier today without errors. I downloaded the file to my notebook computer first. I renamed the file "update" (without the quotes). I hooked up the phone to my computer and copied the file onto the SD card in an open space. I followed the directions for restarting and installing and it worked perfectly.
