    I cannot believe the amount of people who are freaking out over not having 2.1.....

    I suggest you all go and look at Motorola's Facebook page and just read the amount of Moto bashing going on....

    I am waiting for 2.1 like everyone else and i hope it comes but geez louise

    You bought the phone with 2.0 so be happy that we got any updates!!!!!!!

    Not caring.... rooted/oc'd is better. And whatever it does bring I'm sure will be available to the dark side quickly..

    [​IMG] Raj Bhatt Hearing that the HTC Droid Eris has started their 2.1 OTA today is so heartbreaking. I bought the Droid because it was supposed to be at the top of the heap. Honestly, If the update isn't ready for the Droid, then that's okay. Please, just a little more transparency. And I'm sorry, saying "soon" isn't transparent enough.

    the reason people are so frusterated is not because they dont have it its because motorola said they would have it by now and all the other misinformation and all around confusion not to mention the lack of information the NOT KNOWING is whats killing people

    People are overreacting, natural tendencies

    But anyway, yes I agree with you OP, I think people are too impatient on 2.1 If I were you, I would actually root. IMO the Smoked Glass theme blows the 2.1 home out of the water.

    I already tried all the 2.1 features and ROMs and the lastest 2.0.1 Bugless Beast V0.7.6 is way better and faster . The only thing that 2.1 has is live wallpapers , and those won't even be included in the official release . We already have more stuff than the official 2.1 ROM will have , like OC and WIFI . The only thing that can make me switch to the official 2.1 is if they fix the low light video issue .

    I'm Raj Bhatt. That's funny that you copied and pasted my comment off facebook haha. I have been waiting for 2.1 for so long at this point, that I just want some sort of explanation. I don't care if it isn't ready, and I don't need a concrete date. I just want to know why it isn't out.

    Edit: I am rooted, and I love it. I just think that as customers that have paid top dollar for our devices, a level of transparency that is at least equal to other manufacturers like HTC isn't too much to ask. My complaint is that its just a matter of principal.

    I cant understand it either. Why can't folks just use the phone phone like it is. It isn't like 2.1 is going to bring about a whole new phone.

    IMO, rooted droids look much better (2.1 is mostly about aesthetics anyway). People should root

    After the hype and no deliver, motorola is probably gonna keep a lid on everything until its time to push button to send it to vzw so they can send out the ota.

    The phone isn't even bad on 2.0.1

    I rooted and ROM'ed because that's what I do when I'm bored. I mod the closest gadget to me.

    True to what you say what rooting can do; but rooting is not for every one. Rooting is not an end all solution, and you have to research and understand what it entails. The problem is some people do not want to do the research, they root, and then wants the phone freezes or don't wake up.....they freak out. Even the sholesmod app is not perfect. I will tell every one who root whether through sholes or bb........research; it is your device and since you paid for it, you need to know what is going on.

    I'm not surprised. A lot of people are very self-entitled and impatient (and not just about Android updates for the Droid). Obviously it's a very simple matter to get 2.1 working reliably for the Droid. Who would know better than people that know nothing about the process? Motorola is holding out just to annoy everyone. :icon_rolleyes:

    It will come when it comes. I don't see the point in getting all worked up about it. It won't make Motorola complete their work any faster/better. It won't make the wait feel any shorter.

    I'm not looking forward to the inevitable tide of complaints from those who have built-up their expectations for 2.1 once it is released.

    The general population of the world is dumb as a whole. Which is why these people are all overreacting. A few people start a rant and everyone joins, even if they aren't as upset or even care.

    So my reason for people being so upset on facebook over something so silly is because people are dumb.

    The majority of the millions of Droid owners aren't going to root their phone. While the common opinion here is to root, this forum is just a tiny sample of Droid users. Most people do not know what rooting is, won't understand how to do it, and will be easily scared off by the fact it voids your warranty. Do you really expect someone like an teenage girl wanting the flashy wallpaper and animations to comprehend what rooting is and how to do it?

    Rooting is great but people on this forum need to realize the vast majority of Droid users - the common everyday person with smartphone - are NOT going to root their phone, let alone know what that even is.

    To be honest, if I wasn't rooted and all pimped out (heh), I would be very upset about not having 2.1.

    But, really, what does 2.1 bring to the table? A few nifty animations and stuff. Not a big deal. What they really need to do is optimize the OS,make it smoother, faster, and more stable.

    We'll see what happens I guess. I'm not even paying attention to 2.1 other than seeing the daily posts here.

    I would add to this that the majority of the 2 million or so Droid owners aren't even aware an update is even coming. I don't think this is as big a PR/Marketing blunder as some make it out to be. As another commenter stated, this forum and those posting on Facebook represent a very small sample of owners who likely frequent tech sites and are up to date with info. It will come.
