We just posted about the leaked Android 2.1 firmware for the Droid Eris and then learned a nearly finished firmware is also floating around for the Motorola Droid.
As many Droid owners know, Motorola promised the Android 2.1 update was coming “this week” which later turned into coming soon. No further updates have been provided since then, but someone leaked a near final firmware (which is expected to be used for the upcoming OTA update).
Kellex from Droid Life was brave enough to flash the leaked ROM on his Droid and found the performance to be improved. Check out his video below for a quick hands on. Notable missing features from Android 2.1 include live wallpapers and the 3D launcher (both found on the Nexus One).
Motorola has been struggling with recent software updates so it is anyone’s guess when this one might appear. I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened tomorrow of it got delayed again (and again) till next month.
