    Well...it appears that patience may pay off in this instance. Frisco...will you really root a phone after such apprehension with waiting for an official build of 2.1?

    I hope that this pans out...it stands to reason that a root may soon be found for the leaked and/or official OTA as well.

    While rooting the 1.5 appears to be an exciting endeavor, with nearly unlimited possibilities for configuration, I'm nearly certain I'll remain satisfied with the OTA upgrade when it arrives, rather than rooting my 1.5.

    Having said that, I'll most certainly be reading postings from those who are rooting their Erises. I find the whole thing very interesting.

    We will have to see what happens, 2.1 may not be far behind if the exploit has not been discovered by HTC . There are also folks working on the roll back issue. If not, may be having some weird intermittent issues with my phone.

    I'd be madder about updating to 2.1 if I didn't love it so much... I guess I'll wait out the root a little longer- who knows, maybe they'll find a way to roll back to 1.5 and leak out the root to the public at the same time?

    From the XDA forum "Now to work getting it on 2.1
    Don't worry for those who have already updated."

    You don't want to go back to buggy 1.5. Relax you'll get what you need. Besides, it's not even out yet.

    Well...the way I see it...root is most likely found so now the devs can concentrate on one effort rather than a split effort between 2.1 and 1.5. I'm sure rollback will get a lot of attention as well.

    yea they will keep working on 2.1 because a few of the dev's have 2.1 phones already, as for the rooted rom they are still working on it.....not being a techy I have no clue about most of what they are saying on IRC

    Yea I'll get my new/refurbished Eris tomorrow.I'll have to make a big decision. I've never rooted before but it sounds like I'll love it more Dthan leaked 2.1. Will we be able to have live backgrounds? :D

    I would say it will be the minority off of a few geek forums. Most people won't even know let alone care about rooting. So a small minority total.

    Wow! Awesome job dev team! But damn, just damn for me. I'm still lovin me some of this leaked 2.1, but would have much rather preferred root. The leaked 2.1 dialer is really starting to anger me.

    Oh well, fingers crossed we can downgrade sometime soon.

    Interesting.

    If they make it so the fools, I mean folks who installed the leak can go back to 1.5, there will be dancing in the streets. :D
