    They'd better not mess up my 2.1 with an "update." :p

    They will send out an OTA fix and it will be the leak v3 since those bugs did not appear in the leak v3. It will also update the HBOOT to 1.49, thus making it so they can't ROOT.

    That's my opinion, anyway. :) Might as well send out the stable version of 2.1. I've been using v3 since shortly after it was released and have not experienced one issue that was not a result of my own doing.

    i love that v3 is more stable then the OTA. All those people who said they were waiting for the official release got the junk 2.1.
    Screw it, HTC send us all 2.2

    lol .. apparently you have not been reading the "bugs and fixes" thread and various other threads started by v3 leakers, Kevkelsar. ;)

    "..those bugs did not appear in v3" is just a mistaken remark.

    The OTA did nothing adverse to the vast majority of devices it came to. It seems to be panning out that, a few exceptions aside, it is a success.

    The OP here is showing us something that is in place for all smart phones; a feedback opportunity so that the company can collect data in as few places as possible, it's good to have a "hot line," so to speak.

    The buggy OTAs, "silent bug," etc, seem to be panning out to be hitting devices that were that way on 1.5. Not every single one, but most.

    "..all those people.." included many with buggy devices on v3, jrzdroid. ;) Look back around the bugs threads.

    after I updated and did a factory data reset my phone has been amazing... I had so many problems with 1.5 (lag, freeze, dial lag, widget issues, etc.) and the OTA and reset fixed everything.

    well hopefully all those with problems will have them resolved by Google. Since they are gonna take over the world(can't wait) they gotta make sure their phones work properly first

    Oo I thought I was the only one not getting mms notifications, I did the ota update and added root to it and I noticed I wasn't getting pictures txt or the notifications for them, I called them and they said they were checking the network to see if there was a problem with that. They will be getting back to me by friday to see what they plan on going about it. I'll let you guys know what they tell me.

    I'm just in my infancy of root, but so far it seems that rooting to a ROM without Sense fixes all of my lag problems. The HTC dialer is just pure crap and that's a shame because phone is the most basic function of the device.

    I stand by Frisco's statement if you had a good phone on 1.5 you will have a good phone on 2.1. My phone and my wifes phone both work as they are supposed. I wouldn't roll back to 1.5 if you paid me!

    ... from what ive noticed in the threads arent all the phones being sent out for replacements coming with 2.1 with and HBoot of 1.49? which i have also thought i read was the v3 version of HBoot? so thusly wont rooting on a replacement phone be impossible too? or am i just miss-reading things.....
  17. it's in the air, hopefully you will and should get 1.5 shipped, I did. but you never know there has been reports of people reciveing pre-loaded 2.1 with 1.49 hboot

    ok thats what i thought. which makes "Kevkelsar's" post sound a bit more like something that could possibly happen. say there sending a fix for all 2.1 eris users and just give us the v3 leak and then no more trouble with rooters.

    the lady on the phone said i was recieving a brand new Eris, not a refurb. I talked with three Techs are VZW and they all said that 2.1 for the Eris was most likely the worst idea at the time of the OTA. All said its been nothing but a problem and they have a full team working day and night to solve the problems. I've heard that if you go through Asurion they will send you a refurb, but a direct VZW replacement should be brand new with 1.5. Now i just need to find a rom with everything I need. I'm just not sure which way to go, a Sense ROM with overclocking or something else with OC and JIT. I just want my google navigation and a fast sexy eris
