Are there any ROMs out there that have added the newest android version? (2.2 Froyo)
Yes they have some over at XDA, KaosFroyo and CM6 RC1. Both have been ported to the eris but still have some bugs.
I am loving KaosFroyo V23.
The biggest issue is the stock camera app doesn't currently work. But it's being worked on, and Camera Magic will work in the meantime.
v24 will have the camera working!! I can't wait But im linking cyanogen 6 better
KaosFroyo 23 OC'd to 768
Works real well so far, real stable on my Eris.
For anyone out there running KaosFroyo 23, can you please confirm the correct operation of one or more of the following? In particular, has anyone tried Bluetooth voice dialing?
Bluetooth voice dialing
Less important (performance improvements):
Other stuff that I need to continue to work (works in 2.1):
Google Maps & GPS
PDANet (or Wifi tethering)
Making phone calls
you also have CELB Froyo ...I have used CELB Froyo and Kaos Froyo, both developers are hard at work ....I would expect that they will have all the bugs out before long .... currently I am not using a Froyo or CM based rom .....but thats just cuz I like to change it up everyonce in awhile ....
check XDA to stay up to date on these roms
I edited my personal experience in there ^
there's also the option of just...trying it. Not hard to make a backup first and restore if it doesn't meet your needs
I am running Conap's CELBFroyo 1.4 and it is real fast and smooth. Only issue is the camera preview does not work.
Actually, I believe that off-the-shelf Froyo supports this only for applications that have updated/marked as being compatible with living on the sd card. CyanogenMod 6, on which all the eris froyo roms are based, adds the ability to move any user-installed app to the sd card (although you're advised not to put widgets there)
I'm running KaosFroyo, and it's the least buggy rom I've ever put on my eris. Beats the pants off any 2.1 rom. Thinking about trying CELB Froyo, but this rom works too well for me to want to change it out for something else. The only issue I'm having with KaosFroyo is the Camera issue, which is the same issue CELB Froyo has. Kernel based issues suck.
It took a little work to make it the least buggy for me.
When I first flashed, ADW liked to FC all the time. 75% of the time it would reload when unlocking the phone. So what I did was wipe-flash, then flash the remove-adw zip, then wipe and reboot, then install ADW from the market...been perfect ever since.
NotiLED gets rid of the LED thing (at least til I reboot), and Camera magic will suffice for now (though I'd really love the 2.1 HTC camera app)
Other than that, it's been flawless. And FAST
I've been running KaosFroYo v23 since Saturday now and it has been 100% awesome! No lag anywhere, everything working just as I expect a smartPHONE to work.
FYI, KaosFroyo V24 has been released, which fixes the LED and enables the trackball LED.
Can you post a link? Thanks

Is there a post that lists all of the different ROMs? (at least the top 5)? I'm considering rooting my phone and I want to start off with the best ROM for me. Any suggestions? Thanks!
There's this, but it's outdated by a couple months

its a re flash needed to go from v23 to v24? Any way to keep all my current apps and settings? I just flashed v23 just yesterday lol
V24 does not need a wipe.
btw, apps will automatically re-download from the market after a wipe.
I like the cyanogen 6 roms the best now! So nice
