    so I am using droidmod v1 and I love having a rooted phone a don't want to switch back for an update that what I have is pretty much better anyway so should I wait for droidmod to release it or install the update then reroot which would probably be more difficult?

    Well, eventually they will HAVE to pass some build, if they are waiting on a build with absolutely NO bugs, we will NEVER see 2.1 - because a bug-free OS is a complete fairy tale, there is no such thing.

    You don't find 2.0.1 very stable and "bug free"?

    They won't release 2.1 on us if it is not as stable as 2.0.1. That would be a HUGE mistake and they know that.

    What is the rotating earth wallpaper? Is it included with 2.1 or an app? If it's an app can someone please link it so I can check it out when we get 2.1 or I get fed up and root?

    Operating Systems do get better. Windows 7 is a major leap over Vista. I'm sure Moto/Verizon/Google are going to make sure 2.1 is as bug free as possible. Other than a rare FC (probably due to the apps fault), 2.0.1 runs like a top on my Droid.

    Lol the other guy was right, there is no such thing as bug free because that would indicate perfection which is unachievable by a human being. 2.01 is quite stable from my experience (Droid owner since early December) but it's not perfect. There were a couple times it lagged or maybe the screen got temporarily stuck in horizontal view. However there are other owners complaining of freezing and having to pull the battery.

    My guess is they're stalling on releasing the update because in today's economy, nobody wants to look like a jackass, and everyone here knows that a highly anticipated update is going to get just as many complaints as it does not being released, if it's not highly stable. This alone could cause a fluctuation in sales, screwing Verizon and Motorola, meaning some poor bastard and his coworkers will be sitting on the unemployment line.

    I may be wrong but that's one way to look at the wait, it's just people trying to cover their own ass; you'd do the same.

    You know CK that when we had 2.0.0 we didn't have that scrolling in the forums issue. That showed up on 2.0.1. And that's quite a noticeable bug.

    It won't make a difference, no matter what they do with 2.1 ultimately, and I believe that the video is probably it, people won't be satisfied.
