    I have had my Droid now for around a month or so and I'm still learning different things about it. I have the motorola droid and I'm always looking for new information about it. I'm still wondering when the new update for the droid will finally come out. If anyone has any information about this or other things feel free to let me know. THANX

    I think the latest from VZW "coming soon"

    That response seems to have pushed many on this forum to root.

    If your a patient person continue to wait. If not, you may want to consider rooting and installing a custom rom which will give you many, if not all, of the next release capabilities.

    Yeah I'm a patient person so I will prolly just wait, I've read some stuff about rooting my phone but knowing my luck I would jack it up somehow so I will prolly just wait till they put it out. I talked to a lady today at verizon and she said she's having a meeting with the data people or w/e tomorrow and it should be out soon.... but who knows..

    Well either way it is an awesome device.

    I've been in IT since the late 60's but I never got into the sys admin stuff. So, like you, I was very apprehensive about rooting my phone. I was on the fence for days. Not sure what pushed me to the "dark side" but I have no regrets.
    Enjoy!
