    Nah, it means that it'll be either released as an unofficial update.zip soon or an OTA update soon.

    I'm guessing the dev community will make short work of fixing all the bugs in the 2.1 ROMs out now...I also saw stuff for creating your own animated wallpapers...this will be a good night :)

    I hope Motorola now hurries up and optimizes it for the DROID so they can push the OTA update... :D
