    Hey there guys. I'm Currently Running DroidMod through DM updater and am overclocking @ 1200Mhz, Im pretty content with my setup right now, however, I like most people have been dying for the official release. Id be willing to update but i need to have my wifi tether. I heard a while back (saw somewhere on this forum last week) that the Milestones that had the OTA update like last week were able to get rooted. I mean unless thats not true shouldn't we be able to do that as well considering the fact that both phones are technically physically identical.

    if anyone has any idea about that please share.. And i also know that Flash will be only available to 2.1 Users. I haven't keeping up to date really on their status with that over there at adobe. Any news?

    As of right now there is a rooted 2.1 update out there and i know somebody from this forum made a kernel for it so you could just use that and then you'll still have your root access, wifi tether, over clock, etc.

    But honestly in my opinion there's really no point in going to the official 2.1 update. i say this because there are plenty of 2.1 roms out there that not only give you everything that the official 2.1 update gives you but also give you much more. i suggest before trying out the official 2.1 update try out one of the 2.1 roms such as Ultimate Droid, Bugless Beast, Cyanogen Mod, etc and then make your decision.

    I have OC'd, wireless tether capable, rooted 2.1, so it is definitely possible. Just make sure that you don't OTA or force the original upgrade, follow these directions for easy 2.1 root access. Then throw on adrynalyne's kernel and wireless tether for root users pre8.

    Does your kernel have tun support, either built into the kernel or as a module?
