    "Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update,
    ROM: 2.41.605.6/Radio: 2.42.01.04.27, for your HTC Droid Eris."

    I spent some time with the search function, with no luck.

    Its been a while since I have checked in here. Anyway, the other day my wife told me that her Eris (not rooted) had an update waiting to be installed. I have no idea how long it has been sitting on her phone, and mine is rooted, so I didn't get it.

    My question is, has anyone had good/bad/ other experiences with this update? Is it worth it? My wifes phone works great, and I would hate to mess it up.

    Any links to the threads (i am sure they are here somewhere...) would be appreciated.

    Yep. Its the real deal ;) :).

    There's some minor fixes and updates. Nothing earth-shattering though.

    What you have there, E.two.one, is the (very unexpected) February 2011 OTA update for the Eris. It had everyone buzzing and scratching their heads, LOL.

    Here's the PDF document from VZW re. this:

    Here's a couple of other threads that discuss the update too:

    :D ;) :) LOL... Just luck / timing.

    I just finished mowing the lawn and eating dinner. Then, I grabbed my laptop and checked on the Eris forums (they are always the first ones I scan...my AF home :)) and happened to see E.two.one's thread.

    You, metlcat, doogald, Scotty, and BC (and recently, CondemnedSoul too!) are a wonderful and welcome constant presence in the Eris forums and I, for one, appreciate having you guys around.

    Cheers!

    I guess since Feb?

    Thanks for the links. I will check it out and decide if its worth messing with her well mannered, stock Eris.
