The Official Motorola Droid Club - Page 52

post #511 of 1529
I did... and it's okay. Nothing great since I had it before when I was rooted. I actually miss my CyanogenMod, but after dealing with how annoying it was to get it off my phone, I may just keep it stock and use HelixLauncher for now. Once more ROMS are released and have been in the mix for a while, i'll probably go back to the rooted world!

But some positives that I have noticed are:

Increased memory performance.. I used to have many services running with the same exact apps I have now, but for some reason now I always have much more memory free... don't really know why since I haven't changed anything, but I'm not complaining!

Battery life definitely increased for me.. I was getting 10+ hours a day with my phone before it even approached 20-30%.. which was still good, but now I can pretty much leave my phone uncharged for a full day, and still be able to use it the next day after leaving it uncharged overnight.

Always thought this phone looks so sexy, but im happy with my htc hero . My girlfriend has a G1 as well but i think the moto droid looks better since the g1 is a chunky brick

Just curious. If you HAD a Motorola MILESTONE, would you be able to join the group? Since it's the GSM version of the Droid with a few changes?

Overall the update was a good one. Performance is improved and so is battery life. The builtin New/Weather is nice as is the live wallpapers. I can run many more apps and such for longer periods then I was able to with the 2.0.1.

Rooted 2.0.1 mods have all the features of the 2.1 release. I would go that route as no one has currently made a ROM based on 2.1.

You should be able to flash back to factory of 2.0. I'm not positive. I'm also not certain it will even come with 2.1.

Your droid will more than likely come with 2.0.1 but it will want to update right away. Just tell it to update later and your life will be much easier to get to the root! I had some battery issues with my droid so today i went and got a "certified new" droid and this is what I did!
