    Not to me!! but I figured it out. you just have to apply an unrooted update.zip like this........ http://downloads.sholes.info/update.zip. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I was soo close to rooting my phone this evening because I heard what kind of updates, however minor, were going to happen. Now that maybe, just maybe, a full 2.1 update might happen , I'm glad i didn't root my droid. So the waiting game begins..

    Buggless Beauty disables ota updates. You need to reload your nandroid backup or install the unroot zip.

    if you dont know how to do the nandroid restore then just download the sholes updater (search sholes in market, its like SMUpdater) and theres an option to revert back to stock there

    I'll be interested to see what the pros are to 2.1 vs bugless beast. I have bugless beast and its pretty sweet. According to the news on this site 2.1 for the droid has the same app drawer and no live wallpapers. Bugless beast already has the news/weather widget, the 2.1 gallery and 5 homescreens. The only thing that seems to be missing is the multi-touch browser. IMO that doesn't seem worth losing the pros of bugless beast (the black notification bar, black/glass notification pane/notifications, overclock, etc)

    SM Updater is the best thing to happen for those who are afraid of rooting their phones. But SholesMod is great, been running 900mhz 24/7 for a week now. Speedy mod they have. SM Updater will revert your phone back to stock 2.0.1 and back to root in a jiffy.

    What happens if I downloaded 2.1 launcher, gallery, etc. without rooting? Do I need to delete these before update?

    I think the multi-touch browser will be a update to come later on.. I think it will come as an OTA or like the Google Maps..

    Nothing, you can delete them after the update, They are not system apps.

    I think, it will be included in this update.

    I read on BGR that the MT browser will be in this update but some of the pretty stuff will be left out (live wallpapaers and such). I'm not much for fluff anyways so it's all good to me.

    Anyone have a link to download the stock update.zip file?

    Ill be waiting to see what this upgrade includes... im on sholes right now over clocked with the milestone mt browser and all the 2.1 goodies besides live wallpapers (im likin the cover flow smoked glass music player too). Based on the rumors it looks like this update wont be what we all originally hoped for so there might be no reason for those of us who rooted to go back to stock.

    What would you folks here say as the best ROM available? I've heard Sholes 2.0.3 and I've also been told Bugless Beast. I kinda want to try out something that is overlocked a bit... maybe to say 900mhz or 1.1ghz if it's stable.

    I ask you guys this, I have a Droid 2.0.1, It is rooted, but not on a different ROM. So am i in need to unroot my phone? or is it still going to receive the OTA update? I literally have done nothing to my OS except for the initial rooting.
