We haven't seen reports of the version / build number change, although we believe there is still something going on behind the scenes and soon, that will update to 2.0.1 ESD59.

    Our sources have indicated Android 2.1 has passed all internal testing on the Droid and a target is to have all Droids updated before the end of the month. This patch had added some minor fixes and preps the phone for a smooth Android 2.1 RELEASE. To be clear, the forthcoming immediate update is not 2.1, but a precursor to smooth the transition to 2.1 which will follow within the next couple of weeks. Stay Tuned, more details to come!

    Checking my phone just now - I see my system is at 2.01, Build #ESD 56. You show ESD59 as this upcoming update. Have I missed a couple of steps? cuskit
    i was wondering the same thing cause the people that got this update reported there build asESD56 not ESD59

Not sure what's going to happen next since I announced his source in here.

    will it be possible to upgrade to this (or 2.1) on a rooted phone (assuming the root exploit isnt patched) (with sholes recovery installed)?? or will we have to wipe our phones to do that?

    Sources?

    Just out of curiosity your description mentions that your sources report that android 2.1 is ready for the droid. Who might these sources be? Is it a google representative a developer or a bunch of information gathered from other sites? I am purely curious because droid forums seems to mention sources a lot.

    Thanks for the info though I just dont know if I can trust everything I read!

    Android 2.1!!!!!!!!!!

    this is what i heard on a different 2.1 thread:

    We are three pages in and this question has been asked half a dozen times. Read the thread before you ask monotonous questions.

    Hopefully we can get our hands on a direct download for the update again.
