    And it was damn painful!!! But, with the custom roms, from a personal standpoint, it just didn't seem stable to me sometimes. Sometimes I wouldn't receive calls, my pictures wouldn't save, didn't receive emails. Now I am aware that this is probably just me, but I wanted live wallpapers as well, and now that 2.1 has it, I have gone back to the dark side.

    I'm almost positive once someone figures out how to root 2.1, I'll be back.

    I'd think about derooting if stock 2.1 would allow my to run 1 GHZ +

    Love how smooth and responsive overclocking is, and as I've said my Droid runs cooler now.

    Also in your profile where it says phone, that's asking for what kind of phone you have, not for your phone number.

    You realize everyone who views this forum can see your phone number, right?

    no, its not like MANY you are one of the FEW who unrooted for 2.1. we have had ESE53 for a few weeks now. why unroot when you already had 2.1 before the unrooted OTA guys.

    I unrooted for 2.1. A friend of mine is unrooting for 2.1. I'm sure there are many others. I plan to root for OC and Tether but I'm done with custom roms for a while.

    Why is anyone unrooting now? Over the next 48 hours...about what, 2% of droid owners will get an update?

    Exactly. OC really didn't do much for me. PLUS, PDAnet ftw.

    I also unrooted. I was running Pete's V0.8 and loved it but for some reason calls from my wife's cell phone wouldn't ring to my phone. It wouldn't even show up as a missed call. So I went back to a unrooted 2.0.1 and figured I would wait for offcial 2.1. I figure I will get the baseband update and then wait for the rooting procedure for 2.1. I was liking the low voltage OC'd kernel.

    This....Now that I am thinking about it, good point. Remember 2.0? I know a lot of you did not have phones with 2.0 but it had a ton of bugs. 2.1 will likely have a ton as well. And the argument is you want a more stable rom by unrooting. They couldnt even get the camera to work right in 2.0. Depending on what day you had your phone set to, it would or would not focus.

    Ah....the days of being one of the few droid owners. haha

    Innocuous statement

    I am too struggling whether to unroot or not. I am running DroidMod 1.0 and I already have everything the 2.1 update promises.

    I am not using tether like I thought I would.

    I am not using the VPN like I thought I would. (I need root to connect to a Cisco IPSec VPN.)

    I don't really see much of a performance improvement with overclocking and the heat hit kinda makes me nervous.

    I do like the look I was able to achieve with Metamorph though.

    Does any modding expert know if DroidMod is ESE53? They have not released a new ROM for a while since they are recovering from all the drama that happened.

    Droidmod is not ESE53. Its ere25. The easy way to tell this is by the old 2.1 launcher with the 3d scrolling. 3d scrolling just doesn't work on ese53.
