Your Soul is mine!
They said they haven't released an update since the Dec. update. Doesn't mean that an update isn't coming. They're not gonna say that the update is coming at this exact date and time because when/if it doesn't happen even MORE people will bag on them for delaying.
FireDroid as HolyGrail already pointed out Miami made it clear he did not have confirmation on anything related to the 2.1 release.
There is no mention anywhere that this was in fact happening.
There are issues with 2.1 right now and remember 2.1 is not a huge departure from the current OS so updating and introducing these issues onto our device is not a good idea. I don't want to talk bad about a certain company ran by a guy named Balsillie but updating us to a half baked OS will not happen with this phone. You can bet on that. When you receive the update you can be assured it will not "break" anything and will operate properly.
I'd also like to mention that the newness would QUICKLY wear off in a couple of hours and this place would light up with complaints. I for one am quite happy sitting on a solid and reliable OS while they work on 2.1 for us.
It's not fun dealing with a buggy device and so far the Droid has been solid. No point in moving backward for only a few additions.
This whole 2.1 release is very fluid so when we have a good solid lead on the release you guys will be the first to know.
If they haven't released another OTA, what was the 60.41MB OTA that some people got a few days back? I know I didn't imagine it happening, I ignored it right away and eventually gave in and let it update. Then I re-rooted, and eventually manually applied it again just 2 days ago. Something tells me that whoever runs the moto twitter account doesn't have all the information.
C'mon guys, just wait.
Remember 2.0.1 had an officail document of what was coming and when it was coming.
There is nothing like this for 2.1 which is a bigger update, it's not coming soon.
And that document specifically mentioned 1-22-10 as the date for some kind of update, maybe not 2.1, but the date was used multiple times in that leaked doc.
All I can say, is as a Mod and a fellow DROID owner, I am waiting too. I want to see us get the new Flash just as bad as everyone else here. And yes, these are just Rumors. It is all rumors till it comes out into the wild. And our DROIDs start the upgrade process. Then the sparks will start to fly.
As much as some might think we are somehow connected to Motorola or Verizon, we aren't. So we live in the same world as everyone else here, waiting and wanting this new release.
So let's just keep this thread clean and fun, as we all chomp on the bitt waiting for it to eventually being pushed out to all of us. :icon_ devil:
All I want is for the browser (scrolling) speeds to be fixed. It got way worse with 2.0.1
I got my 2.1 update this morning
I stepped away from my desk while cereal had already closed the 2.1 Waiting Area thread.
In that case I am going to re-open this thread, BUT PLEASE keep it under control.
i dont think we know for sure that the browser scrolling will be better
and i doubt you got your 2.1 update this morning
edit: nice job on the white text, i couldnt even see it til the quote
There are still phones with the old build up numbers. If the new build up is required; then we may have to wait until all the droids (active) have the build up before they push out 2.1.
And as cereal mentioned, there could still be problem which delayed the release from the 1/22/10 release date that was speculated in november. They probably ran across an issue needed to be corrected.
