    the simplest way i can think of is by using this thread:
    xda-developers - View Single Post - [TOOL] [NEW 01/02/2011] Flashtool version 0.2.6

    if you download the flashtool and then you can flash one of the versions of 2.1 to your phone.
    its very easy to do so just read the instructions properly.

    a quick guide to the intructions would be this:
    1. download and install flashtool
    2. download 2.1 firmware from the thread (this one is probably the one for you Generic version 2.1update1 build 2.1.A.0.435 )
    3. place firmware file into the firmware folder of your flashtool
    4. switch off your phone, pull the battery out, put it back in. (dont switch the phone back on)
    5. run the flashtool on your computer, it will then tell you to connect your phone
    6. plug the usb cable into your computer then while holding the back key of your phone plug the usb into it, your led should light up green, this is it in flash mode
    7. follow instructions of the flashtool, it will do the rest.

    but my instructions are quickly written so make sure you read the other thread properly, if you have any further questions i will be happy to help out.

    Yup as said many times before AT&T locks up the phone to a almost unusable brick...no carrier's 2.1 update, no non-market apps...This tool will do everything you want in one place, upgrade and root.
