    I am sure this has been answered in the forums somewhere but I have read through some and am getting confused...if someone can just answer the following it would help me a lot- getting anxious about the 2.1 update from VZW/HTC - I want it and I want it now....

    Thanks in advance -

    The 2.1 leak

    - will I get the OTA updated for 2.1 if I am on the leak? I am very anxious to get the new Sense UI and access to 2.0 apps
    - what is the difference between "root 2.1" and "leak 2.1" - just the HTC Sense?
    - Can I root my phone and then put the 2.1 leak on?
    - Can I go back to 1.5 from 2.1 leak if I need to?

    Thanks again - love the forums and love my Eris - just want the fancy new Sense UI....and somehting to do at work today considering everyone ELSE is off!!!

    Thanks so much for replying - I appreciate the quick, concise answers...

    LOVE THESE FORUMS - Caddyman, OTD, Matlock (I am sure I am forgetting someone) are all great on helping out the community. All my friends are on Iphones and I was tempted to get one but then saw the DROID (can anyone read that word and not hear the DROID from the ad in their head - hahaha) and fell in love...

    I am 99% going to do the update today to the leak - tired of waiting and want the newest, latest, greatest (true definition of a gadget geek, huh?).

    droidkevlar -

    Thanks - I know there are but I was getting really confused on the terminology. Appreciate the link - saw that but, again, was getting confused...

    Think I am going to take the plunge today to 2.1
