    I'd be interested to know if anyone that forced the 2.0.1 update (not rooted) gets the sanctioned Jan 22nd maintenance update and/or 2.1 update. I am assuming the forced version will be available, anyway, but just curious.

    If you did the manual update of 2.0.1, you will still get the OTA update. This has been discussed many times, it's only when you root your phone that this becomes an issue.:)

    I've never rooted my phone, so I don't know anything other then what I've read here. If you've read that not renaming that file will still give you the OTA updates then I would believe that to be true. I wasn't aware of it until I read your post.

    So was Echo serious? I'm not seeing that anyone else got the update.

    As a former storm owner there is no use speculating on it, VZW will release when they are good and ready. You can always load the 2.1 leak.

    I don't know guys. I really believe they're going to keep 2.1 exclusive to the N1 (Google's flagship phone) for more than a couple weeks. I think the 22nd will yield only the updates listed in the spec sheet that was released last year. We might not see it on the Droid (Verizon's flagship phone) until shortly before the CDMA-capable N1 is about to be released. I'm usually "the glass is half full" type, but I guess I don't want to set myself up for disappointment.
