    Hm..i would say root. If you can do it and get bugless beauty running then you wont regret it. It's so much faster and smoother than 2.01. Also, has better browsing, photo viewer, movie viewer, clock, and base theme.

    I just rooted and am running at 800mhz. It is amazing and completely worth it. Only takes like 20 minutes as well.

    Rooting isn't for EVERYONE.

    However, simple APK downloads with the help of ASTRO file Manager certainly can be!

    I'm running the Gallery for pics and video with no problems as well as the slightly revamped music player.

    The launcher [5 home screens and new app drawer] Is still quite buggy with rooting.

    There are better links to get the files, and you don't have to extract them if you use ASTRO file manager.

    You can simply navigate to anywhere that has the gallery.apk or other apk links or .zip files for download on your Droid and click them. ASTRO can open .zip and all you have to do is install them.

    Makes the wait a little easier!

    ***EDIT: Sorry...I meant to put a link here, but decided the thread I had wasn't very good. Do some searching. You can find that some of the best parts of 2.1 are available without rooting!
