    Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to do that.

    The real question is whether we should deny the upgrade, as it may 'unroot' us. It all depends on whether it replaces the recovery image.

    The final version had to be in by Friday of this week so what they actually push out is anybody's guess.

    I for one won't be upgrading. Until I can put Flash on either as a download from Adobe or a ROM update...no point. What does 2.1 offer that I don't already have besides Flash that makes it worth losing different ports from the Milestone, the ability to overclock, the ability to monitor real time temps, the ability to take a screenshot without having to use a home replacement app, etc etc?

    Nothing.
