Rooting before or after 2.1

    I still haven't received the 2.1 update yet, but I'm still unclear how updates affect rooted devices and vice-versa.

    Does it matter whether I root my Droid before or after I receive an update? If so, what are the benefits?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure you still can't root with an official 2.1 install.

    If you're gonna root, do it now. There are lots of ROMs based on 2.1, including one based on the official 2.1 update. You need to already be rooted to use them however.

    If you get the OTA 2.1 update, you are going to have to go back to 2.0.1 before you root anyway so you'll just be adding unnecessary time to the process.
