    Now I have doubts about them being so adamant that the 2.1 leakers will get the 2.1 OTA.

    The VZW support people are stupid. Only the upper tier people know anything and when the lower tier people say anything it is usually just rumors and speculation.

    maybe they think people are talking about other phones. People are not clear on twitter. Just saying in there defense. But it sounds like they don't know anything. Someone should tweet them and ask them is 2.1 turns the Eris into a Transformer that kills small rodents. I would but I don't believe in twitter.

    I think it would be funny if someone asked when the Eris is getting 2.2 Not seriously wondering, but just to see what date they make up as they did for so long with the 2.1 update. Just making up random dates and telling customers all different things.

    The official release also said we were getting pinch to zoom in Google Maps and enhanced speech to text. That didn't happen either.

    and no, I don't have the OTA. Running Leak 3.

    Just in case nobody realised it, the people that do Twitter for Verizon aren't techs and are most likely marketing interns. They only know what the little piece of paper in front of them tells them. If that piece of paper said that the Eris allows you direct communication with God, that is what they would tell you.

    VZW did fine on the update. They put a bunch of features in there that serve us well. They failed in that they didn't care enough to get what is supposed to be there correct in their release literature. That is a major fail on their part and though some people believe that we should give thanks to God Almighty for getting 2.1 on the Eris, I am majorly disappointed.
  15. There is no way the Eris is going to run live wallpapers. It would cripple the phone. The CPU does not have anywhere near the FPU capabilities to run them.

    Ran live wallpaper on my Eris when I had VanillaDroid. The phone wasn't crippled at all. The live wallpaper paused when it had to show menu animations and stuff, but it ran just as fast as a static wallpaper. It just pauses in the background so it doesn't eat CPU cycles. Some of the more complex wallpapers had FPS issues, no doubt, but saying there is no way it can run live wallpapers is completely wrong, if it has been done.

    when I was running 2.1 v1 I had a direct communication link to god but I lost it when I upgraded to v2:(

    Live wallpapers slows down my Droid Incredible slightly, so it would definitely slow down an Eris. The Eris just simply can't handle some of this new stuff with it's last gen processor and RAM. Heck it couldn't even keep up with my typing.

    Lwps will eat batteries and after about 5 minutes loses its coolness anyway. If you have to have live wallpaper I have an lg glimmer I can sell ya!
  20. Dont get me wrong, Im sure it can run some cheesy animated backgrounds but live wallpapers you have confirmed is a no-go. Not only that but since the CPU is maxed out while running them you can say bye bye to your battery. Its just not going to work and this was the reason live wallpapers was removed from the 2.1 upgrade.
