    Talked to a verizon upper teir tech support member (you know how that goes). Anyway, for what is worth, I was told that Motorola has indeed released 2.1 and is in VZW testing modes. When will it come out? Who knows......vzw tech support staff says they are the last to know (they most likely are). Thats the news as i have it

    Does this mean that 2.1 has been waiting for Adobe all this time?

    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.
