    I'm hoping we see the nexus style live wallpaper like the video that dropped last week, with the red moving blocks. As far as everyone saying they are just sticking with their rooted phone, be my guest, I am happier without all the force closes.

    Its a real statement guys.
    I agree with you. I just do not know when it will be available to ME (thus my "if and when it comes" statement). Can't wait until Thursday, but might have to wait until Friday, or Saturday

    Let's not degenerate into anything ugly... This is a happy day and good news.

    For those waiting: one step closer

    For those who are rooted and and didn't really care: we'll now have a choice (stay rooted or go official)

    Quit this fighting and bickering. I am sick of that BS.

    The actual Verizon flyer shows that live wallpaper is in the update. Hey look, post number 1!

    I am Rooted, Runing AdamZs Android 2.1, Smoked Glass V6.0.1.

    Is there any real reason as to why I would want to go back to the stock and wait for the update? I am sure once we are all running 2.1 there will be even bigger and better roms, but just looking for opinions....

    Any idea why they didn't include the 5 home screens? Maybe the live wallpapers across 5 screens are too much for Droid (stock processor speeds)?

    On this Verison it actually reads 2.1(ERE 53)

    Any difference?

    If you are running AdamZ's latest 2.1 ROM... I read in his forums that it was just a mistype and it is in fact ESE53.

    today is a great day in android history. The reason i love android over the iphone line is that i have freedom to buy from a number of phones with various formfactors based on what I want. With the nexus one, everyone said android updates would be "google's way or the highway" from now on (especially scared ifanboys) but this proves i can still buy the phone I want and still expect updates and support. The android ecosystem is free once again. Thanks Moto! everyone critisized but you were the first to do it, and you even managed to wrestle out live wallpapers for us. Wasnt that supposed to be a nexus exclusive? not anymore

    This isn't some loser moderator in the Moto forums (moto doesn't control OTA) that makes claims that are obviously incorrect and not based on facts.

    You think Verizon would say "yup, this is how it happens" and it not happen? Cheah, that wouldn't be a PR nightmare!
    People's exhibit A: The LG Voyager V7 update that was coming next week or whatever and took 6 months
    Exhibit B: the whole Storm1 official update fiasco of a year ago that people was coming "next week" "in a few days" etc
    Exhibit C: The droid update we were supposed to get a month ago

    All of these were spread from sources that were supposed to know what they were talking about (VZW support, call center reps, store reps, etc.) and all took waaaaay longer than they were supposed to.

    Now I'm not saying this will be the case here but if you think VZW will not announce an upgrade that is not ready or delay one at the last minute then you are mistaken.....

    I wish I didn't get force closes while running roms, but I do, so that makes the stock 2.1 release way more exciting!

    Seems strange that the extra two screens wouldn't be added. I wouldn't think it would cause such a performance hit vs. live wallpapers that they couldn't be added. Even live wallpapers plus the two extra screens can't be terribly intense. At least, I wouldn't think.

    Anyway, I'm one of those weird people that likes having official updates, so I'm pretty excited for Thursday (and beyond); I want 2.1 on my Droid!

    Somewhere else, someone posted that they were uninstalling all their non-stock apps until after the update. For compatibility purposes. Is that really necessary? Are a lot of non-stock apps going to break after Thursday?

    Who knows, maybe it'll include some goodies that they didn't list!

    I mean, I remember folks here swearing up and down that the update wouldn't come in Q1 and that update wouldn't have LWP. And look; IT HAS! =D

    Lets wait and see whats REALLY in this update! 14 more hours for myself.

    I went back to stock for this. I don't have the time/energy to explore roms beyond DroidMod, I just need a phone that works perfectly so with this having everything I'll need (minus WiFi tether) I'll be set. It sounds like this 2.1 will be pretty good, I'm excited.

    Maybe I'll just buy Tether once its officially out on Android, I signed up for the beta last night in any event.

    I'm pretty sure I won't be among the first to get it, did they say anything besides the 250K groups? How long will it be between groups?

    I notice the postings about the 2.1 update did not include Improvements in Battery life?

    Originally when I saw postings about the 2.1 update, improved battery life was one of the top 6 things it was slated to do, did they pull this, or maybe not include it since live wallpapers may counter act the improved battery life?

    Since I need root access (for WiFi Tether), I'll wait for a while before upgrading to 2.1.

    I'm using the DroidMod 1.0 ROM plus the HelixLauncher home screen and SetCPU, so I'm pretty satisfied for now. I wont mind the speed increases and potential battery improvements the 2.1 kernel will bring, but I very much want to keep my WiFi Tether and root access.

    Hopefully there will be a new DroidMod ROM with the 2.1 update built in to it. That would be perfect!

    Rapture! This maybe enough to keep me from shelling out a ton of money to get a Nexus One.

    Battery life has been great for me, on the days (1 or 2 a month) that I use it more than usual, I have a charger at work, charger at home, and a ICC. I'm pretty well covered. Although getting a little more out of it would never hurt. Any word on Seido's slim line?
