Ok so I have a Moto Droid... rooted and all that, this isn't about me though. My brother has a Droid Eris and recently he has been having numerous problems with the OTA 2.1. I don't know if these problems are everyday to you guys but this is what he said: -Text messages don't get pushed to the phone enough.. he misses a lot -Volume bug/glitch every once in a while.. (no sound for anything until reboot, this mainly happens when a call is inbound.. resulting in no voice pickup.) -Overall sluggishness when going through screens/menus -Facebook "com.htc.bg" glitch - no facebook syncing (very active FB user) -Extreme dialer/typing lag Pretty much, he's fed up with the phone and has literally handed it over to me to fix it. He knows nothing about rooting, but that's what I'm here for. The rooting procedure for this phone seems muchh more difficult than for the Droid.. so if someone could point me into the right direction that would be great. I'm looking to root, and find the best "stock-ish" rom that is the most stable, and bug free. I've played with his phone recently and I won't lie, the OTA upgrade to 2.1 is terrible! I noticed the .apk file for that easy root app? The thread isnt very long so I was skeptical about using it.
