sorry bro ette
Count me in.
I finally pulled the trigger and rooted, Kaos 2.2 v28, very solid.
Highlights of running Froyo for me:
- the new Voice Actions (not perfect, but usable)
- Tethering! I don't have a huge need for this, expect making iPad users jaws drop, lol. I let a co-worker tether their iPad during a meeting today.
* I don't think I'd have done it without that VERY easy to follow guide. Really made it painless!
rocked my eris with it the other day man i love it no going back now .
also gives it a bit more life till i do a upgrade next year , just imagine what we will have by then .
Thanks for the post.
I've tried to find the 2.2 Eris update on the link you gave, but I don't see it. Can you be more specific where it is located?
I have installed froyo 2.2 over rooted 2.1. It seems the version I used was a NEXUS version. It seems to work but I would like the official froyo 2.2 version 30. Where can I find one for Eris?
Thanks for any help.

So it's safe to say that aside from voiding the warranty, rooting the Eris and upgrading from 2.1 to 2.2 is worth it?
Yes very much so I really glad I did it. I only had my phone 2 weeks and rooted.
Rooting in general is a great idea, I'm running erislightning bolt rom, and i love it, i am overclocked to 748MHz and i haven't had a problem with my phone whatsoever. And if you have insurance on your phone, it doesn't matter if the warranty is voided, i haven't upgraded to 2.2 yet, i'm still running 2.1 because i love having Sense, and 7 homescreens lol. As i said rooting in general is a great idea.
Nice. So there are different ROMS? and you can pick and choose and apply different ones? Based on your post, I'm assuming 7 screens are gone once 2.2 rolls around, right? I'm thinking about rooting it this afternoon. I'm excited. dancedroid
Will rooting prevent me from receiving OTA updates, etc?
if you want the 7 screens get LauncherPro from the market, and i bought "weather and toggle widgets " to have the weather clock like sense. and 2.2 roms have a customizable power bar so you wont need sense toggle widgets.
and yes there are a bunch of different roms you can pick from, each ROM thread in the forum here Droid Eris Android Development - xda-developers will tell you the features of the ROM
yes most roms will disable OTA updates but i dont think the eris will be getting anymore anyway...
