    A 2.1 root would be nice, but there are ways around it, and there is a 2.1 (ESE81) .sbf that has root established.

    martin touched on it. If you want to root you must install it yourself.

    Martin,

    I have not seen the ese81 sbf in the few places that I frequent. Care to expound? And here's hoping you do not link to a thread on this site:)

    I kind of gambled that Droidmod would root 2.1. Looks like I was wrong. Oh well, life goes on with 2.1, It's still an awesome phone.

    Why does it make you sad? It doesn't change anything other than adding a few steps to those with stock 2.1. And it doesn't have anything to do with future Roms.

    In my opinion this was a silly announcement for the DroidMod team, it is only going to turn people away. To their defense though, this doesn't change anything.
