    I am debating installing 2.1. I would say I know an average amount about hacking, but I am scared I may mess something up and have to buy a new phone. How risky is it to putting 2.1 on my Droid? Also, is it really worth it in the end, or should I just hold out for the actual Verizon update?

    The major plus for me was to have the new os that none of my friends with droids have and rub it in their faces. It wasn't as hard to install as I thought. And it wasn't as big of a deal as I expected. I do like it a bit more though
