    I found this over at androidforum.com. It is the third version of the 2.1 leak..there is also a change log listing the updates. I have flashed it to my phone and have been running it for about an hour and so far havent noticed a significant difference with the exception of being able to download more htc widgets such as daily challenge, battery, etc. I am not sure if that was fixed in the 2nd version of the leak.

    Here is the link..

    There is no way to back up stock 1.5 Android version. If you dive into this rom there is no returning to stock. With that said, I just upgraded my wife's Eris and this is a really nice rom. 2.1 looks great on the Eris. Makes it somewhat comprable to the Incredible, minus the processor, live wallpapers and friendstream.

    I upgraded to 2.1 about two months ago... Love the actual interface but the frakkin' thing won't work right for calls... AT ALL. Any trouble with this one?

    I think maybe I'll do it then, because this call issue is annoying. Also it makes me log into Google every restart of the phone.

    Thanks! Works great. For those that are curious, if you have an older version of 2.1, you can install this with no problem.

    Do you mind sharing with all of us on what those differences may be or are you just going to keep us wondering?

    So i downloaded this HTC DROID Eris OS 2.1v3 download - Android Forums and its been going good so far. Still interested in rooting my device. I havent seen anything or heard anything in a while. Is there anyone out there that knows how to root the eris with this version of software on it?

    Ever since I installed this leak, my Eris has been a JOKE. Slow at EVERYTHING, calls take years to dial, and the thing freezes up all the time. Well, the kindly Verizon rep that originally told me to get the 2.1 leak, (before it became OTA, that is) refused to reset it. Took it to a Verizon store just recently and they hardwired it to a reset thing in the back, and due to the 2.1, it won't reset it. So I feel majorly screwed by Verizon, and I really want the Incredible mostly to see some SPEED on my phone finally. *sigh*

    Sorry, just ranting here...
