    For those who were asking about where to find the "Rotating Earth" live wallpaper:

    It's in the marketplace. I believe it is called "EarthRot" or something to that effect. If you just search "live wallpapers", it is one of the first apps. You have to be rooted and running a custom rom that supports live wallpapers for it to work.

    So no one has installed 2.1 on their Droid yet? I've seen several articles today saying you could flash it to the Droid....

    I don't know if I'm the first person to realize this or not (probably not)... buuut I don't think that german post has anything to do with what we'll see in our 2.1 update. They're talking about the Motorola Milestone. And the OS for that and our Droid's aren't on the same page. Remember they got multi touch when we didn't?

    Hi I'm new to the forums but I've had my droid for about a month now, I've rooted it and everything. I was wondering if somone could give me a definite answer on what the 2.1 update will do to a rooted droid. I'm enjoying the enhancements that root has given me but my phone seems slightly unstable at times no mater what rom I'm running. Will 2.1 fix it or should I just do a factory reset before 2.1 is released.

    The 3d app tray/launcher is not stable on any ROM (not just the one you happen to be using). It was built for the Nexus One, and since it does not have a keyboard, the homescreen never goes into landscape mode. This is one of the main problems that causes the instability when using it on the Droid.

    Email and 2.1

    Anyone know if they are going to fix email, or should we still use K9. I find the email app quits several times a day.

    I don't have any problems with it. But if they were able to speed up the whole system, it seems quite possible that the gmail problem would go away. And if you prefer K9 to gmail, try the default "email" app, not gmail. It has some features that i liked more than gmails, and i thought k9 sucked with touch controls.

    I've been running the 2.1 ERE25 for about a week, it's been stable and working great, so far. I'm waiting for someone to drop that ESE53 file, seems they are all sitting on that one. Maybe we can get a "official" update one of these days!!

    Not to be mean but you must not read the forums here... there are a few roms using this build here already. This 2.1 leak is several days old.
