    Once again, standard disclaimer applies:
    You are a big boy (girl), and you know the risks of messing with your phone. blah. blah. blah... if it screws up your phone its not our fault.

    Manually Update Droid Eris to Android 2.1 - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
    BEFORE YOU FLASH THIS UPDATE, DO THE FOLLOWING FIRST!!!!!

    By default, 1.5 software does NOT SAVE YOUR CONTACTS TO GOOGLE!!!!!!!! Go through your contacts 1 at a time, and verify they are saved as Google contacts and NOT PHONE CONTACTS. PHONE CONTACTS are only saved LOCALLY. AFTER YOU WIPE YOUR PHONE ALL CONTACTS WILL BE LOST IF THEY ARE NOT SAVED AS GOOGLE CONTACTS!!!

    From Droid-Life:
    Instructions for installation…
    1. Download this file: (alt link)
    2. Rename the file to “update.zip” or just “update” if your PC does not show file extensions.
    3. Drop the file onto the root of your SD card.
    4. Power off your Eris.
    5. Hold the “volume down” button and then power on.
    6. Scroll down to “recovery” and press the power button.
    7. When you see the triangle and exclamation mark, press “power” and “home” at the same time.
    8. Select “apply sdcard: update.zip” and your phone will load the update.
    9. Once it says “Install from sdcard complete” you are finished.
    10. Official 2.1 for the Eris in the house.

    the update worked, but the market still doesn't open. any ideas? it says "a server error has occurred. retry, or cancel and return to previous screen." just like it said when i was in 1.5

    thats odd. Just for stuff and giggles, hit menu, settings, about phone, and check for updates. I'm just about out of ideas now.

    Also try going into manage apps, and clear the data and cache in the market app and try a reboot.

    Just curious, did you do a factory data reset after you got 2.1 on board?

    Did you happen to notice if this happened before or after the last market update?
