    Will I Have to Unroot...

    Now that 2.1 is here, will I have to unroot from DroidMod 1.0? Or can I just install the update when received OTA?

    Why do the ota update? From what I see your going to have the same thing. Except no overclock, wifi tethering, custom themes..only way I would get the update is if it had flash and I don't think it will.
    Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.....unless your an Iphone owner.

    Exactly....unless something is in there that is required for flash to work. If that is the case then I will unroot and install the update. But since moto kept tripping over themselves to get us a watered down update that the devs had given to us root users for months. I do not think moto was that slick.....they were too busy worrying bout the devour. (played with it at best buy, for those that complaint about the droid size...the droid id lighter in comparison.

    if already rooted you're probably better off staying that way. main reason i say that is because the official 2.1 os will be boring compared to what you can do with your rooted phone. that's not to knock 2.1 because it will be a great update from 2.0 if keeping everything stock is more important to you.

    I could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure that ota is disabled with droidmod which means you won't receive notification of the verizon 2.1 update

    True but you can go into setting and choose the update once its pushed.

    Why start a new thread when you are posting in regards to the 2.1 update? Why not post in the 2.1 official thread?
