    Today my wife said "something" kept saying it needed updated so she did it. Whatever it was took awhile. Now all her contact names are gone and several things have changed. Many icons are different and her web says "internet" instead of "browser". Also when she hits the home button while on home screen it brings up all the screens in like a thumbnail circle.

    Is there a way to revert back to wat she had or is it scrwwed up?

    This would be good...

    This won't return the phone to the prior state, but it'd return it to the stock 2.1 that your Droid came with from Verizon...'but' with SPRecovery installed to do back-ups and recovery.

    Is this about a moto droid or an Htc Eris?

    Sounds like the Droid Eris 2.1 update. Especially with the leap thing...
