    keep in mind this isn't an official 2.1 build, nor is it designed for the droid.

    it is a custom rom made from the nexus one 2.1 rom and made to mostly work with the droid.

    it's fairly stable, but do expect it so be somewhat buggy

    If you need a phone to depend on day to day, don't try it...

    Not sure if I'm just one of the lucky ones but I have had only minor problems; physical keyboard no lights, screen freezes where I can't select icons on home screen but can access app drawer fixes with task killer or restart this happens about 3 times a day. Everything else works as good or better then 2.01 but I have seen other people with more bugs and issues. My GPS works and having no problems with the market since the last updated which lets me use Pure Calendar Agenda: ).

    yea, it does run fairly decent for me too, but it is definitely less stable than running 2.0.1, that version never crashed on me.

    make a backup first, then try it out if you want, that way you can always go back fairly easily and quickly

    And the most awesome part is apparently you can interact with them. In the Giz hands-on test, they said that with some wallpapers, like the water wallpaper, tapping on blank spaces on the home screens caused ripples to spread out.

    I installed Android 2.1 onto my Droid and it's been quite stable. It definitely hangs when you use the live wallpapers but I think they're pretty lame looking anyway, except maybe for the Nexus one. It's definitely a lot flashier than 2.0.1, especially with the Gallery. I'm in love with it, haha.

    i wonder what droid specific animated wallpaper we will get, i really hope it's not just the red eye flashing all the time. i want something more subtle.

    Any solid proof that 2.1 is what is coming in January?

    I don't think so, but it's a pretty safe bet.

    And then a majority of this forum with Droids collectively lose all faith in their phones.

    Why wouldn't you try it the rom is pretty stable I've been running it over a week and my phone has only crashed on me say once every 2 days maybe. It has its quirks but I like it more than the official Tom. Its faster app drawer looks better gallery is better.

    As much as I would love to test out 2.1, I just can't bring myself to doing it. After having the Blackberry Storm for a year and depending on having the latest leak just to keep the thing running decent, I'm just to happy having a good stable phone with no reboots and battery pulls.

    Yep, I hear ya. The Storm leaks burned me out.

    As stoked as I am about 2.1, I'm gonna pass. I'll just wait for the official update to come out. Swype is giving me enough to play with for now.

    I think you answered your own question. This reminds me of that one 5.0 leak that worked great but made your camera useless.

    Having the latest software leak is one thing. Having the phone work when you need it is another. I think I will wait on this one.
