    The issue is: Will Google release the code for everyone to compile from after the 21st?

    The SDK will be out before the source is, and its nowhere in sight as of yet.

    I am rather amazed they haven't released the 2.2 SDK as well. Unless of course there are some surprises that still haven't been found and/or announced yet.

    As the majority of 2.0.1 ROM's had most of the eventual 2.1 features, so likely will curent 2.1 ROM development have much of 2.2 when 2.2 is finally released. For examp[le there has already been posts that Peter Alfonso was working on the extra free RAM, and it may well be released with his next Bugless Beast. Adrynalyne has activated voice dialing and there are others constantly working on who knows what. So I tend to think I will be perfectly happy with 2.1 ROM work untill 2.2 is released. Will I be curious about 2.2, sure. Chomping at the bit to risk loosing root to get it, no way.

    You won't need to worry about a 2.2 OTA anytime soon. After Motorola compiles it for the Droid, Verizon will come in and cripple it. So figure 2 months for Motorola to submit to Verizon and 4 months for Verizon to cripple it. But in the mean time Droid 2 comes out later this year and low and behold it already has 2.2 on it. So Verizon stops work on the crippling and says "Buy the Droid 2 if you want it".

    I wonder what a bookie would give me on that?

    I doubt Motorola is going to take their flagship phone, that saved them from failure, and dumb it down for version 2. They might as well just shut the company down if they are going to do that.

    I've seen it done before. But I agree, it's dumb to go cheap on the next generation of your flagship and try to maximize margins riding on the name. Kills the brand every time.

    I would not worry about the 2.2 coming anytime soon. Besides the fact that once Google is done with it and Motorola/Verzion gets their hands on it. Verizon has a horrid track record in getting updates out the door to its customers. Look at all the rumors and speculated dates for the 2.1......

    I am totally happy with my rooted phone and I know that when an update is needed the ROM builders will make sure that we have what we need to be on top.
