    OK Ive had the eris phone for couple months and I have not rooted it or anything but I understand everything about hacking and rooting ...

    But I cant seem to figure out how to use HTC widgets on the 2.1 home scene.. I updated my phone awhile back and I miss having the favorites box on one page and having the HTC weather widget and the HTC calender widget on others..
    I dont want to use HTC scenes so...

    If anyone can help me please... Its been buggin me!!

    no you cant use the actual HTC widgets without using Sense........ but there are replacements for nearly all of them in the market......

    beautiful widgets or fancy widgets is one a lot of people use among others...... just have to do a search for widgets and look at all the choices

    If you use LauncherPro Plus as your home replcement there is a people widget and a bookmarks widget that are very similar to the sense widgets. I believe the dev is currently working on Calendar widgets as well.

    Also there is pure calendar widget which, from what I've heard is similar to the HTC calendar widget. And Beautiful widgets has many skins for the clock and weather with weather animation.

    The weather widget called "Fancy Widget" is (was) so close to HTC's that HTC sued them to stop producing it. The only thing it lacks is the full-screen animation when un-locking.

    Same dev as Beautiful Widgets. There is a skin for Beautiful Widgets available somewhere over @ XDA for the Fancy Widget plus they now have the full screen animation as stated earlier.

    If you want an alternative to the people widget try " Scrollable ContactWidgets" works identically. It works in both ADW and Launcher Pro (works in all versions paid and free)

    Also, switchpro or extended controls have some widgets that were once "htc only" (I'm looking at you, "network connection").
