I gave my cousin my phone last week so he could try and downgrade it to 1.5 because if you all remember I was having trackball issues and they wouldn't take it because it had 2.1 on it. Well, my cousin is basically a coding genius. He found a loop hole in the code that allows you to downgrade your 2.1 eris back down to 1.5 without root. He finally got mine today and if you guys want I'll post pictures tomorrow with my firmware and kernel number and everything. I would post them now but my mom has the only camera besides the one on my Eris and she's not home. He said that he'll give me a tutorial sometime this weekend or some time around there so that I could post it on here (he has college finals this week and doesn't have time to write it up). I'll keep you guys updated on it and post it once he emails it to me.

We will be quick to test it and get it out there to you, I promise.
