    talking with a few people on irc, there is no diff from this update to the last one. only that it formats SYSTEM and actually updates the baseband. the last update didnt update the baseband on all phones. i had to use a sbf file to update the bb.

    I downloaded the zip from post 1. My phone, while rooted wants to download the original 2.1 and both are the same size.

    I think the original update.zip exploit was possible by using a file the exact same size as the 2.01 minor update from 2.0 ...I don't recall what size those files were.

    FWIW, I just got thru ripping open the file and looking at all the apps etc. Even opened up most of the apps. I didn't see any changes and certainly no updated Launcher etc.

    I also find it odd that the previous Droid OTA updates were 15 and 16 mb and this OTA update was 60+mb....seems odd. Also the previous updates were patch files and this one was more like a ROM with uncompressed apks inside.

    Doesn't add up to me.
