*Pssst* You want that sweet 2.1 update for your Droid?

Alright, here’s the deal.  As I posted yesterday, Verizon is finally rolling out the 2.1 update for the Droid.  Of course, they are rolling it out in a scheduled format (probably to prevent overload).  If you don’t want to wait over the next few days or more till you get that magic update notification.. well you’re in luck.

The update files themselves have been released on the internet through some very thoughtful folks.  You can install the update yourself without waiting for the OTA to come to your phone.  It isn’t a difficult thing to do and won’t take much time.  As long as you follow the directions, it’ll be sunshine and green fields.

Check out the droidforums.  This is where you’ll get the directions and the update file to get your phone up to the real 2.1.  This isn’t a joke, it’s the real deal.  And if you need any help, those folks are always helping everyone.  But really, it doesn’t take much effort.  And for the record, I just did this myself in the morning and it worked flawlessly.  I’m quite enjoying my live backgrounds and Google Earth!

And again, this is the same update that you will be receiving from Verizon’s OTA whenever the schedule reaches you.  The same exact thing.  So if you want it now. go have a blast!
