Offical 2.1 Pre-release Testing Started - (Open Testing Spots Still Available)
Taken from the Moto Forum.... https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/29630
Motorola and AT&T are happy to announce a trial release of the 2.1 (Éclair) software upgrade for Backflip, before it is officially released to all customers. We are recruiting 1,000 Backflip owners to test and provide feedback on the upgrade process and software experience.
If you’re a Backflip owner and you’re interested in testing the 2.1 software, please fill out this short registration form.
This registration period will be open until we receive our limit of qualified applicants. Note that you must be a member of the Motorola Owners' Forums to register. If you want to take part, just join this community now and then fill in the 2.1 user trial registration form.
Please note that registering will not guarantee you’ll be among those testing the 2.1 software. Testers will be chosen on a first-come; first-served basis, and on your registration responses.
Additionally, not every owner invited to take part will end up receiving the software, as the download period will be limited to a specific period of time.
Please do not call or contact the Motorola or AT&T call centers for more information -- they have no additional information on this pre-release trial.

Yup, got the same e-mail and I signed up for the testing. I'm rooted, but haven't loaded any custom roms/preclair, so I'd like to try it out. To save everyone from reading through the 140+ pages on that post linked above, as of a little over an hour ago (4:30p CST 11/02) there were still testing spots still open if anyone's interested. They said acceptance e-mails should be going out tomorrow at the earliest. Be prepared, though, the DL window for getting the file will only be a couple of hours, supposedly, so you'll have to respond quickly after getting the e-mail.
Cheers , people are going crazy over there...the guy said in one post....NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TODAY and still got a bunch of follow up posts asking if it will happen today

I can't believe the 1000 mark has not filled up yet.
Message from Matt from Moto: "We're still accepting applicants. All you need to know is here."
If it hasn't filled up yet then it could take a while. People sign up so we can get this test going!
