    I just was wondering when I download it via the market or on his site via smupdater6 file (if I chose to donate more than the $5 market link) does that put 2.1 on the phone (currently runnign 2.01) or does that just root the phone (i understand it allows overclocking via the setcpu app) meaning have to download something else for 2.1.

    Thanks a ton, sorry for the confusion.

    No the Sholes ROM is NOT 2.1

    It is a supped up version of 2.0.1, what you currently have.......I wouldn't suggest the currently available 2.1 ROMs if I were you, they're not very stable....

    2.1 is being 'officially' released in a few days... you can have it then if you choose to unroot. Personally I'm going to stick with 2.0.1 Sholes for the over clock. Performance gain is worth it to me.

    I see, ok yeah I was interested in overclocking which I'll use sholes for and then I guess I'll wait for a viable 2.1 rom, i just hope it isn't a watered down version like the suspected OTA.

    Thanks a lot!

    I figure I am just going to wait it out, odds are over the next month or two we'll see more 2.1 roms, and since I have most of the features already, I'll take sholes, since I doubt there's going to be anything "I just can't live without."

    I would wait and give 2.1 a try. Since you haven't rooted already, you won't suffer like some of us from the loss of being over clocked. Your Droid won't run any different than your used to :)

    What will happen regarding sholes after the 2.1 ota for the people who accept it.

    If sholes is 2.01 root, does that mean that people who accept the 2.1 ota would have to wait for a newer sholes update inorder to root and then overclock. (I would assume using current sholes after the 2.1 ota would revert the system back to 2.01 thus negating the ota...)

    Sholes (thankfully) blocks OTA updates.

    Yes.

    Sholes team will have to develop a new 2.1 ROM that has all the mods packaged within it......

    Shouldn't take too long though

    Thanks yeah that's exactly what I was wondering...

    I think I'll accept the ota, then wait for a new sholes and then overclock.

    Or, instead of accepting the OTA, you could just stay rooted and keep all the nice features of the ROM, and just wait for Sholes to release the new ROM and then update...

    You're taking the chance of google patching the root exploit and not being able to get root at all...

    Isn't that the "fear" every time until inevitably the new patch is rooted?

    After all sholes is 2.01 instead of 2.0? The only reason I would accept the OTA is because the current 2.1 roms are still works in progress. I figure starting with the official and more efficient (than the current roms) 2.1 will allow people to build off of that rather than have to work from the ground up like they currently are. (adapting nexus to droid...)
