    Official 2.1 zipped for manual install?

    I remember when 2.01 came out, there was an official 2.01 .zip file you could download and manually install 2.01 over 2.0 on your Droid. Will such a file exist soon perhaps for those like me who are impatient and need their official 2.1 fix?

    I should have known better, but I was thinking (hoping) this thread was about someone having it.

    Yeah i blew right threw the question marks.

    I saw "Official 2.1 zipped for manual install." (so I was both thinking troll and maybe this guy have something)
    when it was him asking if someones else had the ota unzipped. So obviously the error was my doing.

    One of the hackers has to get their hands on it before they can tell us how to manually install it. AFAIK no one on this forum received it today (actually, we have no idea if anyone received it).

    It's because it's on hold, so no OTA yet.

    Uh, the 2.1 update was cancelled (again).

    Unless I missed the original question... I think we all know the OTA has been delayed and the 2.1 has been hacked many various ways for Root update, but is it simply available as a manual update "without root" so that we simply get the OTA 2.1 early by manually updating it?

    I"m confused as to why we have many varieties of ROM's for root to 2.1 available but no vanilla "non rooted" 2.1 available like we had when 2.01 first came out?

    Is there a common understanding or suspicion that the rooted ROMs are not the final 2.1 version that will be released with the OTA?

    If thats true, maybe we shouldn't be calling the rooted ROM's 2.1? but maybe some sort of beta or pre 2.1 instead?

    Just to avoid confusion for everyone who is not in the nitty gritty "know".

    The vzw kiosk works don't know **** they were the ones in january saying its coming january 23rd lol know one knows anything. Nothing was confirmed just some bull**** iphone fanbois sites saying it was delayed cause no one on here got the first 1000 updates. Ill believe the update when I see it and believe the ota was cancelled when vzw confirms there was a real problem. Untill then my phone works great.

    Eventually they will offer it for those users who want to manually update.
