    I am getting the notification of an update, but it says "Testing Links DO NOT USE", I assume they will update it soon.

    I am excited about 2.1 just to see what Google and verizon think it needs. I will NOT be an early adopter. UD 8.6.3 (I think) is by far the most stable I have run since I rooted. Absolutely no FCs. 2.1 sounds like a step back.

    Exactly! We're not allowed to knock the non-rooters (and to each his own) but why be excited about an update that has less functionality than we "rooters" have.

    Bring on 9.0!!!!

    Well, my understanding is that the Verizon OTA will also push the Radio update. The manual way to load this looks hella complicated, and I'm wondering is the Verizon push will be an easy way to update the radio.

    Of course, then it'd be back to UD9.

    LOL

    I just did the crazy long list of steps to get my Droid rooted and installed a ROM (Ultimate Droid 8.6.3) for the first time last night.

    So if I were to upgrade to v9.0 would it be the same as the last few steps of my long journey? I'd just make a backup of my current state, and then install v9.0 update.zip over it? Or would I do factory and cache wipe first? Would either way work, and not delete my contacts, SMS text messages, etc?

    do you have rom manager? you can update OTA with RM.
    if you are using sprecovery, then just download the update file.
    you don't have to wipe data, factory reset.
    i believe the update will format cache, boot and system.
    make sure you read BD's post before installing.

    I believe BD has said he's going to require a data wipe for UD9, to minimize the problems people have been having with the base change.
