    Whats Taking 2.1 So Long To Be OTA ??

    Why is it not out yet? since the Nuxus released, i thought we would have the official version OTA. Or at least be able to go to the verizon store and get it. I am sick of waiting. And yes, i know i can do it manually.

    We just go 2.0.1 very recently. Be patient. It will come when it comes. The very generous date that the Droid could get 2.1 is still weeks away, and that date may not even be accurate. Enjoy your phone like it is, or manually update to 2.1 now.

    It hasn't been released to the manufacturers/carriers yet to be pushed out. Be patient, we'll get it.

    I only want it so I can get these active wallpapers. I THINK there is a way we can do it already but from what I saw, the process could possibly brick the phone.

    I always love people who think it should just be ready now ...

    Yes, it was released for N1, OPTIMIZED for the N1. It has not been given to Moto.

    Let's figure that Moto only now got their hands on it as Google released it open source this week. No one can confirm that they have it yet.

    They have to take it and now optimize it for the Droid's HW.

    Some of us here are taking the conservative approach: it may be on the 22nd, but don't hold your breath.

    Other than live wallpapers and the OS core tweaks itself, you can install apps from 2.1 to hold you over until it does come out (no rooting involved either, just install APK and use ASTRO).

    You're sick of waiting? Find out how often Blackberrys, WinMo phones, and iPhones get updates/upgrades and then tell me how sick you are of waiting. We got a nice update not long ago and a new update is planned hopefully for this month. That is already REALLY generous. Just because the Nexus has 2.1 doesn't mean they can just throw it on the Droid. It's a different phone with different hardware, it takes time to make it work well, thats why all the 2.1 roms tend to have a little screwyness to them, because they were written for the Nexus originally.

    Ahhhhh Grasshopper. Press your fingertips together and take a deep breath.
    Now exhale. Now go outside for a walk and leave your droid at home for awhile.
    Watch the sunset or the moon rise.

    There, that's better isn't it?

    "The Droid should be enjoyed at all times."

    Too true.

    Not to flame the OP, but the same people who scream for it "Now" are the first back here complaining about the bugs as well.

    Always been like this in dev, if you give it to them early, bugs abound, if you wait too long to release a stable rev, you have complaints. It's just how it goes.

    Once we get 2.1 will you want 2.5 right away? When will the madness end!
