    Root it, install a custom recovery, and flash a FroYo (2.2) ROM.

    As stated above, you can do it by rooting your Eris.

    However, if you are a fan of HTC SenseUI (7 home screens, etc) then be aware that you lose that with a 2.2 Rom. 2.2 Roms were not released by HTC and therefore you will have the stock Froyo 2.2 interface. (Some people prefer that.)

    whats a good custom recovery to use?
    and where do i get the flash a FroYo (2.2) ROM from??
    and do i do it from my phone or on my computer

    im new to this stuff and wanna learn..i just want my dam phone to run better!!!!

    i followed these steps but it didnt work...when i got to the part where it said to "Wipe data/factory reset"

    i did that.. than i Scroll Down and Choose the ROM (.zip) file that you transferred to the root folder of your SD card at the beginning of this process. Click with the trackball once, and then click again to confirm and install the ROM.

    but once i click again to confirm it just wet to abort!!!
    what went wrong??

    Universal Eris Root for Dummies! - Android Forums

    or is there a better way to do it??

    I have a friend running Kaos Froyo v35-1 and is overclocked to 710 Mhz and his Eris is fast and smooth. You're experience may be different with that ROM as no one phone is the same as the other but give it a shot.

    You also might want to run ShadowROM. It's replaced KaosFroyo for me.

    Look at the post from Bob Dammit it is pretty much a step by step and then choose your ROM and go from there.

    Either click on the link from your phones browser and download it, or download it from your computer, and transfer it to your phone via USB. You are going to need a file manager to install the file, if you dont have one already, download Astro File Manager from the market, its free and easy. Before you install the file, you will need to allow install of unknown applications. To do that, from your home screen, hit Menu> Settings> Applications> Check Unknown sources.

    Im heading to work in 15 minutes, if no one can help you, Ill check this thread when I get home.
