    first eris bricked when upgrading from v3 leak to ruu. refurb has some differences that really annoy me. still the new hboot so no root of course. but on v3 leak i had pinch to zoom in my browsers and photos, now there is NO pinch to zoom whatsoever.

    where did it go? i wasn't aware it was not part of the official release

    firmware: 2.1
    baseband: 2.42.00.04.12
    build number: 2.36.605.1 CL165907 release-keys

    Hmm, that's odd, i can pinch to zoom with no problems in the browser and the photo viewer.

    Just got my refurb Eris from verizon in the mail yesterday:

    Baseband 2.42.00.04.12

    Kernel 2.6.29-8a03cb9a (htc/18-2 #1)

    Software/Build 2.36.605.1 CL165907

    PRI/PRL 2.11_002/51920

    Zoom works in the browser and photo gallery. Strangely, this phone is faster than my original factory model (which I went 1.5->2.1 ota)-- it came pre-loaded with 2.1.

    It is considerably faster all around.

    Edit: the google mobile site -will not- pinch zoom.

    yeah, i checked my hboot first thing when i got it, 1.49 s-on. no pinch to zoom really sucks. could always try a factory reset but thats such a pain when u already have ur stuff set up.

    If you installed Swype since you got the new phone and have not rebooted it yet, do so. For some reason there is a bug that when you install Swype the pinch-to-zoom disappears until you reboot.
    I had this same problem with a refurb and that fixed it.

    I got a refurb phone last week but haven't activated it yet because the tech said he'd send me a 1.5 eris since my issues and problems came after 2.1. So far, no luck with that.

    I notice with some websites in the stock browser that I can't pinch to zoom for some reason. I just assume it's something in the sites coding that doesn't allow it, I just know certain ones don't work for me and I'm rooted. I'm guessing you have tried pinching on multiple sites right? Also if it's a mobile site, most don't pinch to zoom for me.
