    I hear there are a couple versions out for Droid OS.

    I currently have an Eris, with factory OS - 1.5 I believe. Am I able to upgrade? If so, how?

    Thanks for the information. I apologize, but what does root vs non-root mean? I see the term popping up places - is rooted like a hacked ROM or something?

    To root your phone means to have complete control over everything. You can load custom roms that have live wallpapers and do things that other Eris owners can't. Eventually you could even overclock your processor to speed your phone up (that isn't available yet). So to make a long answer short, yes it's basically hacking your phone. It does void any warranty though, something to consider.
