motorola droid 2.1 ota update leaked?

just after we broke the news of the droid eris receiving the 2.1 update earlier in the week, we’ve got new news which may have our droids running 2.1 very soon.  developer pete, who is one of the masterminds behind the bugless beast rom has leaked what he is claiming as the android 2.1 update that was supposed to have been released to all of us last week.  he has also added in video of his droid working flawlessly, but as you’ll notice, without the 3d app drawer and without 5 screens.

the file which is not installable and is really only useful to developers at this time is available, but please don’t ask me for instructions on how to get it working.  🙂

file:  system.rar

if you extract the contents of the file you’ll notice a few things:

  • Gallery3D
  • Genie Widget
  • Google Goggles
