    You haven’t been forgotten about just yet Eris users! Nice to see Verizon and HTC still supporting one of the original Droid family members.

    Droid-Life has been great with recent leaks. Don't discount what they've told us :)

    I'm allowed to be somewhat skeptical at this point. I haven't heard anything else about the 7/13 Droid getting 2.2 after that announcement and I'm pretty sure Droid will get 2.2 before the Eris will.

    This update isn't about 2.2. These are maintenance releases for the Eris running 2.1.

    You're right. I misread, and I even double checked before I posted. I don't know where I saw 2.2.

    not if your rooted from what I have read from past OTA updates. Im running a 2.1 v3 leak that matches almost identical to the most recent OTA update, but never received the "official". I'm kinda curious if this is something that is actually gonna happen.. and if my phone will receive it. (my phone is not rooted)

    This will be my first update, if it happens (have to acknowledge the doubters), since I've had my Eris, will this blow away my root access and custom ROM I'm currently running?
