I have 2.1 on my Moment!
 
Thanks to chibucks for giving us the link to from sdx-developers..

I flashed it, very easy and it works!

It seems faster, of course it's a freshly formatted phone now - stock.

Data and voice worked. I checked both.

I'm checking voicemail now.. nothing yet but sprint takes a little time for me to get a notification.

Everything seems to be fine. Actually, it seems like the radio is more sensitive, I'm getting better reception in my home... more bars. It does seem fast, with the exception of the browser seems a tad slower.

All the mail clients work better. My hotmail now has an option to download photos for HTML mail.. it didn't have this before.

Also the orientation changes the way it's supposed to.

I did it!!! I rooted my Moment... then I put 2.1 on and it is working great!!! I was ready to throw my Moment out the window with the annoying "mute" cheek press every time I was on a call. I use Where app daily and am so happy that now I can speak my commands. I love the google maps navigation feature so now I don't have to look it up in google and then go to sprint navigation for turn by turn directions. I don't see any issues yet, but I'm sure whatever they are it won't outweigh the added benefits. The directions on rooting and then adding 2.1 found on this site were very easy to follow. Thanks to all!!!!!!!

Trust me, it wont be too long until you experience the face button pushing once again. Only this time, you have to slide the mute button, not hard. AND you can feel the haptic feedback whenever you touch a button. Using the Voice control will redirect all your sounds to the earpiece instead of the loudspeaker. There are also several other quirks, definitely not ready for the mainstream audience

Did experience the face pushing today....this time with apps being pressed instead of mute... I solely want to use the voice control for Where app in which is just pulls up my number and then I dial... I don't really use speaker phone option....never had, except to listen to voice mail. I'm sure as time goes on more updates/tweaks will be put out... it does satisfy my need to have it now (got tired of waiting on Sprint) and I am totally pleased with it the way it is...it can't go anywhere but up from here.

I enjoyed 2.1 on my Moment... for about an hour. It seemed more buggy and issue ridden than I was ready to deal with. I'll check it out again after the official 2.1 is released and our frienndly SDX members have been able to gain permenant root on it.

Do you think different handsets have different experiences? I've reprogrammed my HTC Touch Pro, my Palm Pre, and now my Moment and so far I have been fortunate to not "brick" any or have any performance issues...and I am truly an amateur that is bound solely by the instructions posted by the professionals here...lol... by the time this update really come out I will probably be ready for the EVO that will be out by summer..

Root comes from it being the beginning directory of an operating system, which is a program that runs. To root a phone means to change the program and how is appropriates itself, also know less lazily as reprogramming. We just say root or rooted because no one wants to do any more work and type any more than is necessary, hence why I almost didn't respond to this post.

Root refers to the Unix term "root", which is an access level and/or user which allows unrestricted access to the operating system and files. You can "reprogram" your phone without having to gain this level of access at the OS level.

Very familiar with terms "root" and "unlock"... but if you look up the definition to reprogram it is when you change the original program of something.... so reprogramming fits. I'm very educated and I choose to use my own vocabulary... you all sometimes sound like Droids using the same "lingo"... Thanks for the clarity, but I didn't need it... you knew what I meant. LOL

Sorry, stparker38. I figured you weren't a native English speaker, so I was trying to help you out. I'll show you what I was addressing:

Root comes from it being the beginning directory of an operating system.

This is wrong. See the definition above.

To root a phone means to change the program and how is appropriates itself, also know less lazily as reprogramming.

This is wrong. Root is a more specific term referring to gaining root access on the phone. Reprogramming is less specific, and could mean anything. It's not lazy to be more specific in your meaning.

Hope this helps!

Congratulations, pencils vibrate strenuously android makes. Interesting variables?

I use my own vocabulary too. If you can't figure it out, it's because I'm very, very educated.

All kidding aside, using standardized lingo does help all participate and easily understand the conversation. I've considered "root" to be akin to having "root access" as an administrator level access in a linux or windows environment. "reprogram" to me means to program the device with a different set of instructions to perform a different action or the same actions in a different way. It has little do with access rights, such as is core to the term "root." By gaining root to our devices, or rooting it, we have admin level access. There, we can reprogram. Rooting is step one and allows you do much more to the device than just reprogram it.

Root is the name of the superuser or administrator account in Linux and Unix. "Rooting" an Android phone, which runs on Linux, means to gain access to the superuser account. It's a slang term that is very specific in it's meaning. The etymology and definition are pretty black and white and not really up for debate.

Reprogramming is a very vague term and can mean many, many things.

Please see the following Wikipedia article for further information on the Root account in Unix/Linux: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_user
