    Are you kidding?! 2.1 seems better in every way. Why would anyone want to take a step backwards? What would possibly be gained by going back? :thinking:

    I have had so many stupid little problems with the new OTA update I am ready to go back to 1.5. I never had these problems before but now they are a daily occurrence. The phone has to have the battery pulled and reset almost everyday due to locking up and not being able do do certain things. I never had this problem before the OTA. Any advice?

    I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to the bugs and having to pull out my battery.
    Damn thing also can't find my songs, videos, and when i use a file manager to play my videos it only plays the sound -.-

    Definitely need to go back to 1.5

    it's very easy to go back to 1.5, if you need any help.

    Rather than go back to 1.5, you should probably take your phones back and get them replaced. I'm not having issues like that. I don't think that's normal. It may be a hardware issue.

    can't be hardware issue if it's a problem in 2.1 and not in 1.5..

    It can if it's only present in certain phones. The software is identical but the hardware isn't. It's been suggested that certain hardware issues may have been pre-existent but dormant. In other words, the software may be using parts of the hardware that were previously untapped.

    there's definitely something wrong, when almost half(the people who have voted) went back to 1.5(including myself)

    Mmmm it's all about personal choice. I haven't messed with any of the newer roms, but you might like cyangeon for the eris or senseless. I'm running my own version of the OTA that has root and over clocking and it's working fine for me only problem was the mms not working but I called vzw and it looks like they fixed it for me. I've heard great things from cyanogen for eris so you might want to give that sa try.
