    Kack, do you know what your seeing? The leaks are all just that, leaks. This one is the official update. This is the same as when the Droids 2.0.1 and 2.1 were available manually. This doesn't require rooting like the previous leaks you may have tried. This is the official OTA. That is why it comes straight from Google. This is the same zip file that your Eris will download when it is chosen by the update gods. We are just jumping the gun and getting it ourself.

    I'm about to use it on my wife's Eris.

    Shadez, this is not old. 2.1 is new for the ERIS.

    I put this on my wife's phone earlier. Working great. Didn't speed it up much but it now has Navigation, working YouTube, new Market, and other small changes.

    Its official.

    Though I can't "prove" it the 2.1 is being sent out and some ppl already got it. So all you have to do is get that file and put it online
    Really simple concept.

    It comes straight from Google, how much more official can you get? You aren't downloading from an attachment or rapidshare or something. Why would Google host a leak on their servers and let everyone download it? Also, the leaks require rooting and other steps in order to apply them. This is an update.zip that is correctly signed from Google. This has happened every time a Droid update comes out also, I don't see why no one believes it!

    Does applying this official update wipe the Eris? Do i need to backup everything on my Wife's and Daughter's phones first? They (ok, me) are getting tired of waiting for that push.

    TIA as always.

    Your contacts getvsaved on the net so they come back. Pictures ate on the SD card. You might loose your text messages. But that's not the end of the world.
    You will need to install your apps again. Again no big deal.

    Sorry but wrong. I did it on my wifes yesterday and the ONLY thing we can see that got "wiped" were her icons/widgets/wallpaper on her homescreens. They were set back to default. I've also heard that all Scenes will be wiped. Oh an some settings were set back to default such as notification options and whatnot. However all contacts, texts, apps, widgets, etc were still there and did NOT require reinstallation.

    It doesn't tell me that it sends me to an error page.
    I really need this file or else its gonna really hurt me in the long run.
    I cannot reboot my phone its stuck in a boot loop & my recovery mode is saying i need an update.zip file, well I can't figure out which is the right one and every one I use has some kind of error whether it's signature verification failed installation aborted; E: cache/cant open/recovery/command or wtf ever! lol i'm freakin out.

    None of those files are going to help you if you have a Citrus, they are specifically for the Eris.

    PS: Please do not cross post, it slows down the chances that you will get help.
