1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi guys, I got my first droid today, the d1.

    I was wonderign why I didn't have live wallpapers so I checked to see which firmware im running, I'm running 2.0.

    So I went to check for system updates, and it says it's up to date.

    What's wrong?

    any help would be much appreciated

    Use the links in this thread to grab the file to force the update to 2.1 on your droid in this thread.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/android-forum/65648-questions-re-unrooting-ota-update-froyo.html

    Refer to post number 4 and 7, but don't do any of the rsd lite and sbf stuff. Just download the 2.01 to 2.1 update file, rename it to update.zip and put it in your sd card and boot into recovery and install it.

    After you install 2.1 you will have to call * 228 and select option 1 to activate your droid. Then you will be 2.1 and ready to receive the 2.2 update that will be going out soon.

    Power off, and hold X while turning the phone back on. Then, once you see the /!\, press the camera button halfway and the up volume button, then hit apply update.zip
