    I just got an email stating a update for the Eris with this copy & pasted out of the pdf link."Droid Eris software version ROM: 2.36.605.1/Radio: 2.42.00.04.12"

    Heres the link to the pdf on my email.

    http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/eris.pdf

    For some reason it says its a 2.1 update? I thought this was only a patch to fix some issues and add enhancements. Since we already have 2.1 OTA for the phone already. Did anyone else get this email today?

    The PDF that the link is pointing to is for the upgrade to 2.1 that we got a few months back.

    I'm guessing that verizon forgot to update the PDF link.

    Maybe they realized that the original 2.1 was so screwed up, that they just want to pretend it didn't happen. :D

    There's supposed to be a minor patch being released today that fixes some bugs with 2.1. That's most likely what the e-mail was for. Otherwise, maybe they had an issue with their mailing list.

    Also received, but I'm rooted with 2.2, so I'll likely pass.

    I Just got the email and I have had 2.1 for a month and a half. I believe that this should have been about the patch that is due to release tonight at midnight.

    Which Rom are you using and how is it? I'm using EvilEris3 right now but am tempted by the Froyo goodness...

    +1 Froyo is sweet. KaosFroyo perhaps?

    I got this email as well -- hilarious that Verizon has the email point to a now-months-old pdf.

    Yeah. That's the one I just got too. Hmm... Somebody must not be paying attention on the job. I wonder how long it will take them to realize they've sent the wrong e-mail and follow it up with the right one. :D

    I got my email too. Interesting, cause I don't think I got one back when the OTA was coming out. I was on leak 3, but they didn't know that. :p

    I too got the email..

    So I wondering the same as everyone else. Why annouce this 2.1 update like 2.1 did not happen. We all have 2.1 by now so they really should have revised it to state a fix for bugs for 2.1

    Who knows, maybe verizon just clicked the wrong button which was meant for may. Nevertheless it woiuld be awesome to get a update which fixed all the bugs and made the phone badass again

    I think it's a goof on Verizons part. They should have updated the pdf to state that it is an update patch I guess haha.

    I don't know if I should wait for this OTA patch or just ROOT and get it over with. I have been checking out the unrevoked3 method but I want to make sure it doesn't wipe my phone. My son rooted his incredible and it didn't wipe anything only gave him superuser. I have been searching around like crazy to see if i can root also without wipe and have gotten conflicting answers. I only want to use my stock rom for the time being until I become more familiar with rooting.

    I actually use that at work all time to demo computers to customers. Our in-store wifi has major QoS issues, so I just tether my phone and connect to demonstrate wireless capability on laptops.
