    OK, the rumors have been all over this and other forums. HTC is working on getting 2.0 (and/or 2.1) to work with Sense UI and that is why we are still waiting for the OS upgrade.

    So, with that having been said over and over, why is it that the Incredible is being dropped WITH Google 2.1 AND Sense UI??? That tells me the software is ready. So NOW what is it that we are still (im)patiently waiting on???

    Anyone with a half-way intelligent answer please let us know?!?!?!?

    Thanks,
    Terminally Waiting...

    If this qusetion has already been posted elsewhere I didn't find it.

    There's a 2.1 thread here, you could have just posted it in there.

    Anyways, I realized the same thing and I just figured it was the difference in hardware specs that made it difficult, but even then, that's not quite a strong answer. That's why this is such a frustrating issue. It seems to be fueled more by profit than anything and while some people think the Eris will get it right as the Incredible comes out (before that is just stupid to even consider), who's to say that it won't be a while after the Incredible is out? The Droid didn't get 2.1 when the Nexus One came out, and they were both running Home and no special UIs. Profit or different phones need over a month to get proper drivers or something?

    So if the Droid has waited this long so far, what's one to think about HTC and their BS?

    Yeah, I looked in the 2.1 thread and it is WAYYYY off topic, and not Eris specific anyway.

    I had HTC on the phone last Friday. The tech I talked to would only confirm that "we are working on it"... Seems to be the standard answer...

    VZW will give you the same answer, or tell you 1.6 should already be out. They're useless. I've just accepted that we won't get our updates in Q1, like promised, and that we all should expect BS delays and see it after March 31st, or whenever Q1 ends. It'll come out after the Incredible does, and that's due out mid-March or later.

    I am also getting frustrated with this. I think that if HTC is not more careful about keeping their upgrades equal across the board with their devices more and more people will forsake the sense UI for regular android home so as to get the ever improving os upgrades when they are due. I think that especially as there is less and less differentiation in the sense widgets that were so popular in the beginning and the non sense widgets the devs are putting out, there is certainly going to be less incentive to buy HTC. This lag in upgrading is not acceptable to me even though I love the eris form factor. They better get a lot better at this if they want to keep clients.

    Just released on HTC's Twitter: HTC Eris and Hero users in Europe/Asia will be getting 2.0 very soon. Is there hope for us in the US?

    All you have to do for anwers is go to a reputable news source and read.
    Starting these random 2.1 threads are becoming ridiculous :(
    HTC obviously has 2.1 running with Sense (see Mobile World Congress Coverage), but it has to trickle down to carriers and so on...
    This takes time and testing...
    This of course has already been covered in the 2.1 thread as Smacky stated.
    Close this pointless thread.

    Yeah, people are quick to flame. Don't worry about it. If a thread really bothers someone that much, then why in the hell would you post in it?

    Let the mods do their job. No one has to do it for them.

    WOW...
    Flame? I think that everyone is confused.
    I dont Flame anyone.
    Please read what I posted, just saying that there is already a thread for this reason.
    I am sure that if you know me and my projects you will understand that I would never Flame someone.

    I've seen many of your posts and places you post. I still don't see the point in responding to someone if you don't think it's worthy.

    This thread wasn't created today.

    Just a pet peeve. There's mods for a reason.

    Back on topic, someone in the "other" thread posted a pic of what they claim is a VZW test Eris running 2.1. If it's legit, which it seems to be it shouldn't be too long now.

    I am not pissed. I just don't care to associate with a bunch of self-appointed thread/post Nazis. I came here to learn about Android and my phone. It's all about community. There just isn't a sense of community here. There are some really great people on here, but acidbath comes in and acts like, just 'cause he knows more than I, that he superior to me. I don't have to participate. I am smart enough to figure this out on my own. To those that were nice enough to post sometime supportive: Thanks!

    Oh, and I just got a Tweet back from HTC. They re-worded their Twitter release saying: BTW-- HTC Eris and Sprint Hero AND Hero users in Europe and Asia...I can now tell you that Eclair with Sense will be offered for you all.

    I let it roll off my back. Sometimes I do mess up. I take responsibility if I do and ignore the rest. I am all about the Android. If someone wants to get personal here with me they will lose cause I'm not stooping that low.

    I hear ya! It's not like I am new to the forum. I signed up as soon as I got my ex-Droid. The place was fun then. It is just full of people with superiority complexes these days and I would rather have fun then be told "I know more than you so you have no place here".

    I feel you, there are many, I have kept myself from my rent-a-mod OCD compulsions pretty well here though....lol


    this is the reason, vzw i think takes the longest to ok software cause deployment of said software goes to SO many subscibers.

    now now RC, seems to me that 2 people had a bad day at the same time here, don't worry be happy man....it's just the internet, and this forum IMO is extremely friendly compared to many others.

    That's the spirit!!

    Like I said, I think a few people had a bad day today. It is out of character from what I have seen for Acid to respond like that, and it is also out of character from what I have seen from you to react this way as well.

    It's all good guys, we are on the brink of an official, major, OS upgrade, and getting root access, these are exciting times (for phone geeks) smile, it won't hurt. :)

    You are one of the original guys that welcomed me here and actually went out of your way to help me. Thanks!

    And I PRAY for root! Can't wait to get in the kitchen and cook my own ROM like in the old HTC XV6800 days!!!

    I have been knee deep in the Armshell code all day with our newest exploit, and trying to squeeze this payload through.....its just got me frustrated.

    I am gonna step away from the computer before I start flaming Caddyman for being a Junior Member over at XDA ;)

    Goodnight all and sorry for the childish moment.
