Think I am still going to root tonight. SetCPU, Home Screenshots and many other features still won't be enabled with the update.

I was going to wait for the online community to work out rooting for the 2.1 update before I rooted, but I'm glad I said screw it. Cyanogen and a few others are more advanced than any official update that will ever come out for the phone. Clock speeds have doubled if not more with better lower voltage kernels, AOSP-built ROMs exist with any imaginable feature from any form of android you could ever want, and so much more. There is no point in caring about the 2.1 OTA or any OTA in the future.

New member here on OCN and just came across this thread. WOOT!!! I LOVE MY DROID! Please add me to the official fan club

Some apps that I am using and find very useful:

Google Translate - I work for Verizon installing their FIOS and you wont believe how many times I get to a house and the customer states they do not speak english. Now I can bust out my phone and hold a, slow, conversation with them in over 50 languages.

Mobile Defense - I actually used this once already because I thought I left my phone at my mother in laws. Logged onto the website and it pulled up a map showing it was at my house and connected to my home wifi network. I sent the page to the phone so I could find it and was surprised when a car alarm went off

Our Groceries - Never go to the store without knowing what to get again. Make shopping lists that are shared with other users, in my case my wife, and each person can update the list. So if she forgot to tell me to get something I can check it while Im there and see she made changes to the list.

Hoccer - Havent had a chance to really play with it but I think its interesting to be able to send files from one phone to another using gestures. For example swinging the phone like a frisbee sends that file to near by receivers.

Dolphin Browser - Looks Nice, Runs Smoot, Has Gestures like pinch to zoom.

I use "Talk to Me" instead of google translate...seems more simple to me. Does the google translate speak the translated language as well? Talk to me does but it does sound a little off.

Got mah new ROM installed...
  • ChevyNo1's SimplyStunning v2.0.3 w/ Blue Glass Theme
  • ChevyNo1's 10-slot 1.0Ghz Kernel + WIFI Tether (Overclocked to 1000Mhz/125Mhz)
  • Added Blue/Orange/Red Round Battery Icon
  • Icons/Widgets are themed with HexFusionBlue (MetaMorph theme)
  • Added Droid Logo font
  • Using the HelixLauncher and its FAST. (only downside to this launcher is the animation can be a little slow when using the double-tap preview feature to move between screens, it slows down at the end of the animation)
  • Beautiful Widgets - Smaller Home with time and weather. (Cobalt skin)

It was on 1.6.3 last I checked and the current is 1.7.x.
Yeah, I started flashing the clockworkmod recovery before I left for work, but it froze in the flashing process and made me nervous so I rebooted to avoid bricking. Does it normally take a few minutes?

Did you do it through a terminal/adb or with ROM manager? Either way should take 3-5 seconds.

Yes it does. However the voice is in a robotic tone like the navigation.

It also takes voice input instead of just text.
