    Below are the instrcutions for applying 2.0.1 manually without waiting for OTA Update.

    • Grab this file https://android.clients.google.com/upda ... 263456.zip
    • Rename the file to update.zip and place it the root directory of your SD Card.
    • Power off the phone.
    • Power on the phone, while holding the 'X' on the physical keyboard.
    • When you see the triangle and !, press Volume Up + Camera button.
    • Navigate to "apply update.zip" and press the gold button (center) on the D-Pad. Now it will install.
    • Reboot phone (should take 3-4 minutes).
    Your DROID is now running 2.0.1 instantly without waiting.

    Yes you take the file and put it onto the SD card, and rename it to update.zip and follow the instructions above.

    can you really screw up your phone doing this? by looking the directions it doesn't look like you can do anything wrong...
