    the best thing about root is that the rom cookers will have the official 2.1 images im sure with root soon enough. I'm all for official too. I love checking out leaks cause it's fun, but usually ported leaks have bugs and instability. What I've found that works best for me is to keep it rooted on 2.0.1, but apply some minor mods that only root could do, like change the stock launcher to have 5 screens and to make home screen auto-rotate. I've also pulled in some of hte system apps like the 3d gallery which is cool. It seems that these changes are mostly safe and introduce very very few bugs. So I'm waiting for when the official update/code is released and I'm fairly sure there will soon be an official 2.1 rooted image for me to use to keep going with this.

    from variuos forums I've heard that droid is slated to get a mainteance update and also 2.1. There were no clarifications as to whether this was all in one update or separate nor were there dates. If this rumor in this post is true, then what we'll probably get in january is just some kind of maintenance update....

    They all have their set of issues that bugged the hell out of me. The whole deal of installing buggy software took me back to my 9530 days. I got the Droid so that I could have a bug free phone that works. Dumped the 2.1 and went back to the 2.0.1 . Now the wait begins for the official Droid 2.1.
    I decided long ago that I was not going to play the same game I did with the Storm and constantly upgrade and live with the bugs just to have the latest and greatest. I would rather have works.

    I am confused. You trust what your friend tells you, then decide you have more reliable sources?



    Verizon store and tech reps know as much as we do. Probably even less.

    I trust what Sanjay says, for no other reason than he is more in the know than Verizon (for obvious reasons).

    I really doubt it will take long for 2.1 to be dropped in our laps. If there is an MR before that, so be it. I like bugfixes too.

    nothing much as of late, there is a newer build that has the milestone browser integrated into it, but it has issues with the camera.... plus it looks like alldroid was hacked today and they are down for the time being..

    I would stay away from the current builds. Not stable enough.

    the one i'm running seems plenty stable to me, the buggy part is the live wallpapers, when enabled, it would cause slowdowns and some FC, but with them off, the phone is rock solid and quick.

    Do you still get the bug where the names dont line up with the icons in the portrait drawer? Does the landscape drawer line up now? Any lag switching between screens? Is the keyboard light finally fixed? Those are the few that bugged me the most.

    I do get that with the icon not lining up. The fix I did was turn it off and wait 20 sec. if that doesn't work, repeat.

    Keyboard lights up..

    no lag I seen switching between screen.

    Live wallpaper freezes up at times.

    2.0.1 runs flawlessly. Even with 26 apps I haven't gotten a single foreclose in 2 weeks.
