    You beat me to it every time! LOL I was just getting ready to post this same thing.

    Thanks and I hope that it fixes the BT issues you were having.

    P.S. His server is getting killed! Maybe I'll be able to download it later.

    If his problems were related to either BT streaming and/or placing phone calls, it seems as though they have been fixed.

    I flashed right before bed last night. I did NOT wipe anything and it worked great. Total boot time took about 5-6 minutes. I sat on the Motorola symbol for about 2 minutes and watched my matrix boot animation for about 4 minutes.

    So far everything is going great. I have noticed some minor tweaks and they seem to be ok. I noticed that BD changed the banner text on the lock screen from Ultimate Droid back to Verizon Wireless. Also, the controls in the drop down notification are no longer red, but instead are gray for off and white for on. It seems as though he has refined the blacks and made them slightly transparent.

    I need to flash my kernel again as this replaced the one I was using.

    But, overall, this is a much better build than 2.0.0.

    Same problem here too. Well, except that I was lucky enough to sneak in and get it last night... LOL

    I do know that BD's Facebook page states that his site is down for maintenance. As for the mediafire link, I'm not sure why it is not giving the DL link. I don't know of any other links, but if I find one, I'll post it here.

    Edit: here try this link http://rafficax.macleod-web.net/DroidRoms/ultimate_sholes-ota-eng.blackdroid-2.1.0.zip
