    The Helix Launcher in the Marketplace works just fine if you're looking for up to 7 screens w/out getting rooted. There is the occasional Forceclose but it hasn't been too often to be distracting.Helix Launcher2 doesn't behave nice w/the Droid.

    Just for the record, there never was going to be 5 home screens. Neither the app drawer nor the number of home screens (still 3) changes with 2.1 .

    On the Google Earth issue, after the update it just doesn't appear in the Market for some users. It doesn't seem to matter if you got your update OTA or downloaded, had ever rooted or not. Some people could see GE in the Market, others (like me) could not. The solution is a factory reset. That seemed to clear it right up, and now I can see GE in the Market.

    I assume everyone has gotten the update by now. Now someone needs to start a new thread for 2.1-update2. On the real though, anyone heard anything about this? Perhaps that will include the 3D app drawer, multiple screens, and other small fixes and they just didn't want to bombard the phone with a plethora of interface changes all at once.

    Droid Firmware 2.1-update2.... I started it then it was closed by hookbill and I was told to continue it here......

    I'm going to make some calls tonight to see if I can get anything out of Verizon/Moto. Worth a shot, even if we dont get an ETA. All I want to know is if it is coming at all, I dont care how long it will take.

    You missed the part where I said "I dont care how long it will take." So to answer your question, no I dont want an update every day.

    Maybe it was mentioned a few pages back, or 37 im not sure but i got the OTA update late last night (hawaii time) i noticed my baseband is the "C_01.3E.o1P" version after comparing it to other screenshots in this section i noticed many if not all were "C_01.3E.03P". Even on the Verizon support page it mentions C_01.3E.03P. Any comments?

    I have no idea about what LWP means, but I do know this. The manual update and the OTA are the same update. I don't know how many times this needs to be repeated but I'll continue to repeat as often as necessary.

    The manual update was not "developed" by somebody, it's the exact same file taken off the SD card that the OTA puts on it. There is no difference.

    I got the update. I asked my Droid to cook dinner. I even put the chicken in the pan and turned on the heat, wanting to be patient since I knew it was unfamiliar with my kitchen. When I smelled burning 20 minutes later, I came rushing back in the kitchen and found my dinner burnt to a crisp. The Droid just sat there doing nothing. That night I left my Droid in my bathroom and guess what? The next morning I came in and it was still just as dirty behind the toilet as the previous night.

    This update is a joke.
