Seriously, don't let Verizon's tyrannical "we want to make sure the update goes smoothly" attitude get in the way of enjoying your Android 2.0.1 just the way you like it: fresh, piping hot, and served on the bleeding, jagged edge. Just because you haven't been carefully groomed and hand-picked to receive the Droid's latest (and first) firmware update over the air doesn't mean that you've got to twiddle your thumbs; thankfully, the binary has leaked onto the 'nets, which means you just need to copy it to your microSD card (Motorola graciously included a 16GB one with your phone, if you recall correctly) and follow a few simple instructions. Godspeed, Droid owner -- never let The Man hold you down. Not now, not ever.
