    *UPDATE* Works great so far, it does do a wipe of the user data though so be sure to backup anything you might want to hold onto

    2.1 For Eris Has Leaked

    For those of you who have the Eris and have been waiting for a little love to come your way, we may have it for you here. There is a leaked ROM out of China that is now available, however this may not be the final version for the Eris and it may be several months before Verizon actually releases this. However if you're and adventurous type and can't wait, this may be something of interest to you.

    It says choose the "hboot" option.

    I only see Bootloader, Reboot, Reboot Boatloader..........

    Which is hboot? I'm a newbie

    You have to admit.. This is clever on HTC's part... Leak the ROM, get the public to test it, look for any bugs, and provide feedback. Then when the "official" rom gets released it's 100% bug free and HTC gets praised for having a problem free release...

    just tap the power key over Bootloader is what i did and it went through everything to look for the rom and then it will ask you if you want to update and then its pretty much on autopilot once you select yes to update

    *edit* oh and btw youtube app works now too

    I don't think I have the balls to try this yet, but what's the best way to back up all the data?

    It's my experience that companies don't have the public do their beta testing for them. This particular leak doesn't appear to be close to a final version and there have been similar leaks for the Droid as well.

    In another forum I use to belong to the subject of public beta testing has been brought up regularly. We'd like to think that HTC is looking at this forum for feedback all the time, but it simply doesn't happen that way.

    it installed great, but now i can't add any htc widgets to my home screens, like mail, ect
    when i pull up htc widget the screen is empty and it won't let me load them

    so i am going to reinstall 2.1 again, and i think i missed it up when i did my backup

    I think when i did my back up i got excited and screwed up and hit to use my system settings from 1.5...and i think that fubared the whole operation. It did a force stop on my back up then none of my widgets worked. Its all most done reinstalling now, so i will try it again......
