    Google/htc/whoever failed to mention the eris on the list of phones getting/not recieving 2.2, and now that froyos "official", are we gonna get it? I understand that we're not likely to get it but it'd be nice to have all those features on such a great phone. :p
    So what do you think? Do you think we'll get 2.2?

    i read somewhere these (Eris Froyo) threads were killing baby penguins, similar to the kitten genocide that was 2.1.

    the kitten genocide was of little concern because i generally hate any and all domesticated felines...however i quite like penguins, so killing them is not very nice.

    SORRY BABY PENGUINS :(

    Eris is EOL, Verizon and HTC don't give a shit about it anymore. The maintenance update that is being sent OTA right now will likely be last update we will receive. If you want Froyo, ROOT, as some developer will mod it so it can be usable.

    I'm thinking that the only way Eris users will see Froyo coming to their devices will be via root ROM developers finding a way.

    No proof, data or reliable quotes from anybody to back assertion that up. ;)

    Considering that Sprint officially announced that the Hero will NOT be getting 2.2 i think that drops the chances a bit for the Eris...

    Agreed; chances probably went from "no chance" to "NO chance". I'm just being negative , but with reason after the fuster cluck of 2.1. ;)

    They always look so well-dressed for the execution too.

    That's because they don't know its for a lost cause, because Froyo is never coming to the Eris.

    My Eris would be perfect if they just let me store apps on the sd card.

    VIVA LES PEGUINS!!!!!!!

    Here's what I think we should do: Once we get a working, complete Froyo ROM (with Sense), we should send it to HTC or Verizon and say, "Hey, will you please sign this with your special release-keys so that anyone who wants it can install it?"

    I'm fine with not having 2.2. There really wasn't anything as complelling in the release compard to 2.1 - navigation & 1.6 specific app support. Yes, there were some "nice to haves" like tethering, but at a $20/mo Verizon upcharge - no way. Exchange support only good for corporate users but alternatives abound. Keyboards, tip widgets, shortcuts - meh. Performance improvements could be interesting but these things usually are specific to some subset of functionality and not as great as they sound.
    I'm fine until my contract is up and I can make a BIG jump in hardware and network.
