So of course we all want the new 2.1 update and instead of busting our heads trying to figure out "should I risk root, how can I update, blah blah blah..."
I have 2.1 ROOTED on my Droid right now and it works like a charm
just go to the market
-download "ROM manager" (yes, its free)
-select to Download ROM
-Verizon Droid 2.1 STOCK (Stable, Radio, Rooted!)
it only took me about 10 minutes for the whole process
