This isn't a "when will the OTA Update come?" or "will I lose root?" I am wondering how the OTA update process begins. We've just about all read that Motorola has posted info on Facebook stating that 2.1 will be available this week (or next....'when' is actually irrelevant). So is it Motorola who is responsible for making the 2.1 update suitable for our Droids? Meaning...are they the ones who have tested/tweaked Google's 2.1 update and made sure it works okay with the phone, added/removed features etc.? And not Verizon? Or does Verizon have the final 'say' as to whether or not the update is ready to go to our phones. Or do they even have any input at all? IIRC, the last update to 2.0.1 (at least the forced method) everybody was downloading the file from Google servers. Maybe that was just coincidental as somebody leaked the info/link...I can't remember back that far lol. I used the force update method so I'm not sure how the OTA worked (I know how it works..just saying). Kinda rambling here...sorry. Basically, I want to know does Motorola push the update? Or do they send the files to Verizon and then they push it to us? And regardless of who does the pushing of the update, how will we know where the file came from? I saw an Admin asking in another thread for someone to PM him about the link/file/whatever. How would I, rooted or not, know exactly how to get the update.zip from the phone? Is there a link associated with the file that can be seen by a normal user? Again, sorry. Kinda have multiple questions in the above paragraphs. Any enlightenment would be appreciated to cure my curiosity. I did search for this info on here, but basically only came up with people saying when "Moto/VZW" makes an announcemnt, we will know..etc etc. Thanks guys & gals.
