    Official 2.1 Update... What's Going to Happen???

    Just wanted to poll the community to see what their opinions on what will happen with the official 2.1 update.

    Obviously many of the options are silly. Don't take this too seriously.

    Bonus... how long until Root is obtained?

    What do you mean "what will happen"?

    I imagine we will get it, or stay rooted and not get it....

    And wait for 2.1 root...

    You phones will EXPLODE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know as for how long until a new exploit is found. How long did it take originally?? Root was already exploited when I bought mine but I would wager it will take longer this time (I would assume the type of people that found the original exploit aren't unrooting to find out).
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    I'd assume (and hope) 2.1 will get rooted at which point sholes and BB will be able to do even bigger and better things since they'd be working off of the updated and optimized OTA.

    Droid Eris still isn't rooted in spite of coming out at the same time, so I think people who think it'll be a few days are being a bit optimistic. Original root took a few weeks if I recall? (It coincided with 2.01 update being released.)

    The N1 was rooted before it was released, but it was deliberately designed for this to be easy, and it still can't be unrooted as far as I know.

    No you don't have to do anything...lol much less drive to the VZW store!!

    It'll popup as a little notification window on your phone saying there is an update available for your phone....click install now or whatever and your done!

    It will be sent OTA (over the air) to your phone, just download it when you receive a notification...

    I'll just stay hopeful 2.1 will be rooted since the 2.1 roms aren't perfect yet.

    BTW has Sholes commented on plans regarding the 2.1 OTA?

    Nothing for me. I'm gonna stay rooted and wait for a rom off the official 2.1 and use the 2.1 rom I have now until that point...

    The 2.1 ROMs aren't perfect yet because a lot of the 2.1 source doesn't play nice on the Droid and, in addition many of them have been ripped from other sources (like the Nexus).

    Once 2.1 is OTA the chefs will have the 'official' 2.1 Droid ROM to cook so they will (just as 2.0.1) run better than the stock POS that Moto/VZW will push in addition to allowing us more (or less) features and customizable options.
