    The forum is loaded with 2.1 this 2.1 that, manually updated, blah, blah. It makes it impossible to search how to do the manual update myself. I saw that someone mentioned that their is a version that you can still root. Can someone point me to these instructions please.
    Thanks

    Hasn't anybody dumbed this down to a simple set of instructions to get the Official 2.1 update manually? (with or without root) The link given above has 23 pages of stuff that I can barely figure out. Help!

    I have a mac. How will I combine the files? It talks about "Open command prompt and run the following command to combine them" I think this is a PC thing. Hasn't anybody posted a combined file already?
