    Having said this - It is my opinoin that if you need to ask what this is then you should NOT be doing this.

    I have rooted my phone and put the recovery image on my device. Then I restored the 2.1 rom onto my device using nandroid.

    I liked this image - I didn't have any problems worth mentioning. The rom is being discussed here.

    Just an FYI - I used SirPsycoS recovery and Greeks 2.1 rom, I went from 2.0.1 to 2.1 and back to 2.0.1. I just flashed back (recovered) to 2.1 which I'm going to run for the rest of today.
    Just a fix to my original post.

    P3Droid,

    Do you mind if I use your avatar and add it to the "default" library here for others to choose from?
    Yeah, I have two others as well.

    So who was realeasing it because I thought that last week this update was being sent out by motorla in the hundreds and than started to see it in the 100,000s for people to download. And than that would make sense. So when would the update 2.1.0 from motorola be released.
    the update on Dec 11th that was pushed OTA was 2.0.1

    2.1 is the 'rumored' version that the Jan 22nd update will be. Again... 'rumored'.
    We know there is an update on Jan 22nd but there has been no official word on what version.
    OK now I got the full info thanks allot for that. I thought they were saying that 2.0.1 was not released by Motrola and was confusing because when I saw 2.1.0 I thought it was just a type and was reffering to 2.0.1. lol.

    I saw the video for the new startup with this OS, and showed it to my Dad. Like me, he likes the current "Cylon Red Eye" and the "Droid" sound it makes at startup.

    I'm hoping that if this new OS comes to pass, there's a way to go back to the current startup graphics.

    Oh, you guys talkin' about a non-official FW version.

    It looks cool. Not a big deal if you ask me.

    No GPS yet>!?Crazy.
