    I dont have my droid yet, and i probly wont for a few more weeks... (ugh, who am i kidding, probly a month) and apparently 2.1 is coming to the droid this week..

    I would assume that new out-of-the-box droids would contain 2.1 (out of the box) Is there any way i can get it from 2.1 to 2.0.1? i wanna root and OC it.

    It doesnt matter when the Droid was made when you turn it on it will update to the latest build.

    Out of the box is meaningless.

    Well, what i was saying was, will it already have 2.1 on it, or will it have 2.0.1, then ask to update to 2.1. If it asks, i can decline (hopefully?) but if its already got 2.1 on it, i doubt a factory restore will bring it to 2.0.1.

    nvm i found it...i feel late even though i check this site about everyhour...http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/21546-official-2-1-release-week-motorola-droid.html

    And im sure you can put the 2.0.1 Update.zip in the root of your MC and reboot to Recovery and downgrade from there?

    Just got my phone a week ago, but the 2.0.1 download came not out of the box, but out of the verizon FiOS. 2.1 will come from the same source, when it's available to all phones. Sorry bud, you've got to wait like the rest of us.

    A word of advice, if i may? Pawn something, or... hawk a spare tire, or take a student loan... do a deal. However it is you make cash, do it!! Do it and buy this phone sooner than later. You'll be a better man for it :)

    Your right if it comes with 2.1 a factory restore will bring it back to 2.1....

    But I'm sure one of the genius rooters could get you a 2.01 ROM that will work just fine.

    Well, by the time that happens, 2.1 would be rooted, wont it?

    on that note.. lol, how long did 2.0.1 take to root on the droid?

    (also why did it have to be rooted 'on the droid'? if another phone had 2.0.1 could the root update work for any phone with 2.0.1?)
