    This is my first thread,sry if not very good. I have a eris running v3(which is doing great) but I want root, so i called Verizon tech support and told them I had software problems,and there sendind me a different phone, is there a way to tell if the phone they send is the official 2.1 or the leak? I'm wanting to root so need official,unless it comes with 1.5. Any information will be greatly appreciated, thanks

    If you hold down power+volume down, (with the phone off) it should bring you to a white screen with some options. At the top it should show your HBoot version. If it says 1.47, you are good to go for root. if it says 1.49, the phone was probably flashed with what we call "the leak v3" software. (which BTW is identical to the OTA in every respect).

    They phone they send will have 1.5 on it. Once you turn it on, it will prompt you to install the OTA 2.1.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be weird if Verizon tech support was sending out unofficial leak phones instead of official software?
