    So, im sure a bunch of people are checking out these ROOT forums waiting for the devs to crack the leaked version of 2.1 that was released earlier this month, and now with this new 2.1 that came out yesterday, im sure a lot of you are wondering... should i wait and give the devs more time to crack the old leak or should i just go ahead and upgrade?

    I am asking the same question.

    so devs, i know you are hard at work and we appreciate everything you have done for the eris community, i ask you, what should we do? are you guys close to cracking the old leak or are you still at square one? cause if you are not even close, maybe it would be a good idea to quit hacking at the old leak and to start fresh with the new one (especially if this actually IS the same os as the upcoming OTA).

    I leave my updating future in your hands devs... your wish is my command... keep the old 2.1 leak or grab the new 2.1... that is the question!

    My GUIDE stickied above incorporates the leaked 2.1 "official" update that was released earlier today.

    Like we've said in the past, whenever Verizon releases new "official" updates, it only takes a few minutes to incorporate their releases into a rooted rom. ;)

    Yes, but that doesn't address the OP's concern/question. Will the devs stop working on trying to root the initial leaked 2.1 and just focus on this new leak? Or should some of those with the original leak just wait out in hopes of the devs continuing to try and crack the original leak for root? Because if the devs stop completely trying on the original leak, no point in sticking with it.

    Exactly. This isnt a question for ROOTED phones, this is a question for the Devs regarding which leaked 2.1 version they are going to focus their rooting efforts towards.

    I'm in on this one because I jumped ship last time and you had root a week later. If there are efforts being made and they are getting close, then I will wait...if not, I'll just update and wait.

    I would like to know this too. Was so pissed that it got rooted after I updated to 2.1 leak. Don't wanna do anything too quick again.

    I'm taking it that the devs are too busy using the new 2.1 leak and making ROMs. Oh well...updated...I lack needed patience.

    I would also like to know if the Devs will abandon the "early leak" to work on the "OTA Leak". Because I, like Alprazolam, am really impatient and already upgraded to the "OTA Leak".

    I would stay on 2.1 Leak just to play it safe then you can always make the jump to the other leak when they root it
