Okay I just got my Droid today and am pretty disappointed to learn that 2.1 has been postponed indefinitely. I wasn't going to root my phone at all, but now I've decided to. The thing is, I don't want some crazy custom ROM with all kinds of stuff bogging down the phone. I just want something that has been tested thoroughly and is just as stable and as fast as the stock firmware would be without all the bugs that come with most custom software. The only features I need are the ones that come with the actual 2.1 update, such as multitouch and live wallpapers, and I do not want any sort of custom interfaces or graphical changes. I want it as close to stock as possible. Suggestions?
Also, what would be the best thread to follow when rooting for the first time? The stickied one seems to be outdated.
