    so i clicked install now.

    i was already up to date on the December patch, but this is brand new-anyone else get this? what exactly does it do.

    my build number is now ESD56-which i think is the same as it was before

    Kernel is

    Check your firmware version under the about phone section: what does it say there?

    That's the kernel my phone is running, and the same build number, and it's still on 2.0.1. No new updates since December here..

    Agh, oh well. Just a worthless update then. I'm kinda bummed, all the devs that were all frantically working on Droid jumped ship for Nexus One. Over at Alldroid there is practically nothing happening. I was hoping this update might get us the hookup.

    Ahh well. Droid still pwnz. 2.1 is some more voice features and the 'ol lady powdering her nose to look nicer :P

    Keep in mind I'm simply going by no other mention anywhere on the internet about 2.1 starting to push. But I'm 99% sure it's not 2.1.

    Time will tell. I've scoured several other forums and surely someone else would have had an OTA notification. Last time the news was spread like a wildfire within a short period of time.

    And for what it's worth I've been hearing the roll out start on the 22nd to 5,000 people, then 20,000 on the 23rd, and on the 24th the rest... I think this date has been mentioned on this forum already but me hearing myself makes me feel better.

    Starting to see some info elsewhere.

    Droid system update - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    I'm starting to think there is a maintenance update rolling out. This very well could be the start of our Jan 22nd update.

    Huh. So this is a patch-in update of 2.0.1 to people who got the wrong update back in December? Crazy. I guess we need to all be on the same page for 2.1.
    I think build ESD56 is the right one? Does anybody have a version of 2.0.1 that isn't ESD56?

    I cant believe 2.1 and live wallpapers are only a week away, this would have taken a year for a BB.

    Because if 2.1 were to come out the 22nd (or the 18th or the previous predicted dates from sources on the internet) it would be announced by motorola like they said they would on their twitter

    just an fyi, the devs at alldroid have definitely not at all jumped ship. There are 5 or 6 custom roms available over there and daily releases of modified and leaked stuff.
