    What Guchi is saying is that it has been out and available to download manually for a few days now but i am also waiting for it to come via OTA on my phone to be safe.

    +1 here. I manually installed 2.0.1, rooted, flashed roms, themed, tweaked themes to my liking, messed with all sorts of system files...

    I'm just sitting back now and waiting to the actual OTA to come to my Droid. :icon_ banana:

    I'm sorry but why exactly do you want a mod to move this to news? Thousands of people already got it yesterday.

    ok, well i apologize if i was a bit late...

    but is there a thread on the "feedback" for the update. im not too keen on the features released. and im particularly concerned about browser multi-touch and live wallpapers. are either of these features available on 2.1 (i havent updated OTA yet because i been too worried about it :/ )? 2.1 isnt rooted yet (from what i understand), so i dont wanna go from rooted 2.0.1 to unrooted 2.1 unless its worth it.

    Both are MT browser and LWP are in the 2.1 update. Best of all though is that it comes with Google Goggles. ;)

    google goggles is free anyways...its one of the first apps i ever got.

    im having a problem though...i finally accepted the OTA update about an hour ago...it immediately rebooted (before doing anything that even remotely appeared to be a software download). then when i check in the system settings, it still says droidmod 2.0.1...isnt the update supposed to overwrite the root?

    No you were supposed to UnRoot and go back to stock if you wanted the update. The update wont work with rooted phones.

    I had my phone rooted with UD9 installed. I simply placed the 2.1 update.zip on my SD card, rebooted into SPRecovery and installed the update. It totally wiped the phone, unrooting it and installing the stock recovery along with 2.1 (I knew this would happen, which left me needing to use RSDLite + 2.0.1.sbf if I wanted to go back).

    So what exactly do you mean by 'the update won't work with rooted phones'?
