    So of course we all want the new 2.1 update and instead of busting our heads trying to figure out "should I risk root, how can I update, blah blah blah..."

    I have 2.1 ROOTED on my Droid right now and it works like a charm :D

    just go to the market
    -download "ROM manager" (yes, its free)
    -select to Download ROM
    -Stock Images
    -Verizon Droid 2.1 STOCK (Stable, Radio, Rooted!)


    it only took me about 10 minutes for the whole process

    So you still have ROOT with a stock image? How does that work? What else are you running? Ultimate Droid?

    not running anything else... apparently this stock image keeps your root when updating with the ROM manager
