I just got the notification and began the application process (note that I am not rooted, but WAS about a month ago, but am back to stock). I walked away while it was doing its' thing and came back to find that I am stock on an infinite boot loop of the Droid Eye. I've powered down, battery pulled, etc. I booted into recovery mode and while I do have the option of booting to the update.zip, I have no recollection of what the file could be. Could it be the newly downloaded Verizon update?

I woke up this morning about 4:30 and found my notification for the upgrade. I started the upgrade, rolled over for a little while, and when I looked again (about an hour later) it was all ready to go. So far, I have not had any problems or hiccups. This version seems a bit smoother than 2.2 and so far, I'm liking it!!

Only played with the update for about half an hour but here's what I've observed so far.
1. Seems a little smoother, can't tell if this is just in my head or not, and it could be the result of the reboot too, but droid does seem more fluid and stable.
2. Gmail has a nice improvement bringing some of the benefit of priority inbox to the phone.
3. The "News and Weather" widget looks the same but I did notice one thing; it used to be if I clicked a headline in the widget I would then have to scroll down to find the actual story. Now it looks like if the headline is on the visible part of the widget when you click it, it is the first story you read.
That's about all I've been able to observe, I'm really curious if there really is a stability and or speed increase or if it's just my imagination. Looking forward to finding out more from anyone else!

The update did not work on my phone. It got stuck and so I just let it run all night until the battery ran out. Apparently the battery REALLY ran out because it took a good 15 minutes of charging before the phone turned on. Maybe I shouldn't have deleted the Amazon app...

I saw the notification when I woke up this morning around 5:45am EST. I immediately got excited thinking this was a gingerbread update. I backed up everything just in case. I rebooted the phone, started the upgrade went into the shower while the phone was plugged in on a full battery. When I came out of the shower it was all done.
I did notice that load up the home screen and switching between screens is more fluid.
News & Weather was more fluid. Wifi was definately faster. Web browsing on WIFI was faster than on my 3rd Gen Ipod Touch. Pages loaded in full faster, also emails on Exchange with graphics actually loaded faster or in full.
Yahoo mail seems faster as well.
Map- I am inside now...that seems slower. Did not load GPS as fast but the map did load (binary?)
All I know is that the screen to screen is much more fluid.

I had my notification on Wednesday morning when I woke up. I was hoping it would fix my ActiveSync\Exchange email sync issues I've had since the last update "broke" it. Initially, I was still receiving sync errors - but, after removing and re-adding my exchange account things have been working GREAT for two days now!
As far as the maps go - I don't notice anything different. But that could just be me. I use them infrequently enough that I may never notice a change in performance.

Just got the update this morning and noticed that Maps has been using a lot of battery power.
I was on GPS for half hour which only uses about 10% battery, but instead Maps has used 40%. Also, my Maps still looks like before...haven't noticed anything different.

I am rooted and got update notification last night. When I hit update, it went into install mode and then frozen for a while. I have to re power off to use the phone. Now I do not see that update notification. Where I can find the updated file. If some one has it please post the link for it.
