    I just tried to put 2.1 on my phone and whenever i enter recovery mode and try to hit Hboot Mode it starts to unzip but stops abruptly after like 2 seconds. I clean wiped my phone before doing this followed all the steps correctly but no matter what i do it keeps doing this. Any suggestions on how to fix this or get it to work?

    Yeah, since apparently they don't have root for the leaked 2.1..

    This is sad that I don't own an eris, but I am here. Slow day for Droid news, actually, I am happy for you guys. Was starting to get scared it wasn't going to happen...
