    Hello All,

    I just recently downloaded 2.1 and so far its awesome, but im having some issues. First, where are the live wallpapers??? I downloaded several off the market, but i have no idea where to use them at. Also, i have some issues when i go to make calls, i press buttons and it lags to a point to where it slows down completely.

    Any help would be appreciated

    The Eris does not have live wallpaper. The OS does not support it.

    As far as phone lag goes, the call log is usually the culprit. Clear it and see if that helps.

    Lots of new features and bug fixes. With the leak you also get the added benefit of some new bugs too.

    My phone transitions much faster. The running apps and other processes load quicker. I can scroll through my programs without the screen getting jumpy. Because the programs load more efficiently, the battery life is slightly better.

    Also, different apps available in the market - Google Navigation.

    Instead of updating to the leak you should have went the route of rooting your phone instead. At least then if you find 2.1 is not for you at this point in time you can go back to 1.5 without any hassle. Also some of the roms for rooted eris's do support some live wallpapers, but some of them just don't work correctly if at all. I know this does you no good but for others out there trying to decide which way to go it might help them decide to go the route of rooting instead.

    Side note: This is post #420, hehe.

    surprised this thread hasnt been closed yet :rolleyes:

    the phone itself isnt fast enough for LWP. LWP did come out with 2.1, but only for the phones that can handle it
