    Just like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny, Does Verizon push the OTA update in the middle of the night to keep its secrecy and keep us all excited about the goodies to come?

    2.0.1 was pushed to me around 12:30 am EST. I think the majority also received their updates around them. So it appears that they do but well see soon enough,

    here is something to play with until we see the updates roll out, the 2.1 Launcher for the Droid has gotten a upgrade.

    Go to AllDroid - View topic - [release]Launcher2 Ported to 2.0.1, v1.1b *UPD 2/08/10*
    and you can choose between two new versions. they both work very well. They never force close and they have a couple more secrets in them that make them extra great. ie. (dedicated phone, apps(two different kinds), and browser icons) just like the HTC hero or Eris. and open folders are larger with slightly smaller icons so you can view more. 3D app launcher is very smooth. their may be more additions, but not that i have noticed. a better version is planned to fix the last remaining bugs and shrink size down.

    Guys, these "I haven't gotten the update" posts aren't very useful since they they haven't started to roll it out yet.

    Launcher2 caused to many FCs on my phone. I like the normal with 5-7 screens, all that is needed with launcher is more screens, the 3d app drawer is junk.
    the new Launcher 2 update only has one continous FC and that is in
    Landscape mode. other than that it is perfect.

    Note the dedicated browser button opens a new window. so keep the browser app on the homescreen so you'll have a direct option for both going to what you already have open and opening a new window.

    I would go stock OS and wait till this monday or so and if nothing root!
    Yeah I think I'm going to keep root for the moment. Once people start getting the update and we have a better indication of the reality of Droid 2.1, I will make a decision. I'm sure that my ROM will have an update for it soon after anyway. I just would rather not loose root by going back to stock and getting the OTA if I don't have to..

    My friend and his wife's droids have rebooted a few times on their own yesterday. Poor couple thought they were receiving the update. But no update yet. I have no sign of anything yet. It's only Wednesday.

    if we are unrooted and update to the official 2.1, are we not going to be able to root in the same manor as before?

    or are we gonna need to wait till a new rooting method is released? (new update.zip for the new 2.1)

    So there appears to be a lot of people overly anxious of this update...

    Sorry if this has been asked already, but just curious as to why everyone seems so excited for this partial 2.1 roll out?

    Don't we already get a lot of those features from ROM's?

    Their is just a better feeling when you know that you're running an official ROM that has all of the features the hacked ROMs have. Its more secure feeling. and then you don't have to unroot or modify anything if you take it in to get a fix.

    That doesn't really matter to me though, because if i ever want a new one i'll just claim an insurance replacement for lost/stolen.
