    I got the 2.1 update this morning here in NYC.

    Where are my 5 screens?

    Live Wallpapers - neat
    Pinch - nice
    Gallery - cool
    Phone performance - better!

    Forgive me for overlooking, but is there a complete list of features included in this update published?

    Got my update last night around midnight... not much to tell other that the cool live wallpapers. Not sure what was all the fuss about this update. Some users here will not do the update because they like the rooted, 6 pages, etc better than what we got. I wished I was a little more savvy doing all those updates and overcloking... well I hope the phone does not explode on my now because I know Verizon or Moto are not going to do anything about it anytime soon.
    Good luck to all

    Just got my update this morning in Northern California. I woke up, turned on my Droid and the update notice came on the screen. It took 3 minutes to update from start to finish.
    The only thing weird was my swype stopped working and I had to uninstall and re-install it to get it to work again. I need to play around to see what is new but I love the new pinch screen.

    I received my update early Sunday morning. Everything went well except for a few issues due to my own stupidity. I downloaded the helix launcher right away so I could get some more screens. I was very pleased...nice app! The one problem I found is my LED light doesn't seem to work anymore with my Ringo Pro app. The LED works for everything else. Has anyone had this same problem? Also my phone is slightly "laggy". Nothing major, but seems a little jumpy with some stuff since the update. Any recommendation on resets or anything to eliminate this?

    Ha I also got mine this morning in North Carolina. That definitely goes to show that it does not roll out regionally. My swype also stopped working. I will have to reinstall it I guess. The live wallpapers are pretty sweet. I see some good potential in them.

    It took mine like all night to actually download. I checked it at like 12:45AM and it said it was downloading. After awhile it just stopped and I just clicked the download button again. That was kind of weird. I fell asleep and the update prompt was up when I woke up.

    Okay, have the 2.1 update and have a question. I see a lot of posts about the new gallery but none answering my question. When in the multimedia dock and i press photos, I get a slideshow of all of my pictures with pan and zoom. Out of the dock I finally figured out how to get a slideshow of one particular folder, but not more than one. Is there a way from the gallery to get the same slideshow that I get when in the multimedia dock?

    just got my update about 45 minutes ago..so far my droid's running a little faster. the live wallpapers are cool and stuff and the new weather/news widget, pinch to zoom on maps...etc.
    i want 5 screens and i want a different app drawer (not likely ever but would still be nice).
    install only took about 3 minutes though which was somewhat impressive


    what i REALLY want is for the Helix Launcher2 to stop force closing on ESE81 (HelixLauncher1 works though)
    overall decent update, i wonder if maybe they'll throw in anything unexpected for update2 just to sweeten the deal..probably not but it'd be nice
