    Great news! Here come some more good days with pushing the Eris to its limits.

    How about "hooray for the devs at XDA!"...thanks for the root goodness you've already provided and can't wait for our "2.2" dessert :D

    Very cool...I am just apprehensive about how well 2.2 will run on the Eris hardware. If it's sluggish compared to 2.1, I just wouldn't be able to justify it.

    I would think (and bet) that it runs better (or at least no worse than) 2.1.

    Each release and version of Android gets better and better. Its also important to realize how relatively new Android is (yeah, its nougaty goodness at the center is Linux), but wow, lots of fixes and efficiencies seen from each minor and major release. I wonder if anyone's actually ran benchmarks for each version on the same hardware platform / device...would really be interesting...

    Go 2.2! :D

    +1 Many get stuck in the Microsoft mindset that requires more power with each new release. Google will continue to include features that don't work for our phone, but their core will get faster and more efficient.

    I saw a youtube video today of a G1 running a rom called King Eris, which looked to be a port of 2.1+sense to the G1. If that's the case, I'll just happily wait for King Incredible 2.2 :)

    I'm assuming this was done by KingKlick. Got a link?

    I found it via CrazyEye's sig on XDA.

    AndroidSPIN Screenshots: KingKlick?s KiNgxKxKlair DroidEris2G1 v0.1 Beta AndroidSPIN

    I'm new to root and ROM cooking, but to me this proves that Sense UI can be ported to different devices. I wonder how it works . . . specifically, I wonder if KingKlick's ROM allows Sense widgets to run with non-Sense launchers (e.g. LauncherPro)?

    Regardless, it proves that Sense UI can be ported. This gives us hope that a Froyo ROM can be created in the future that will support Sense widgets!
