    If you are running leak v1 or v2 upgrade it to v3. Leak v3 is the same as the OTA and fixes bugs in the other versions.

    Yes. We will definitely be upgradeable to 2.2. It's costly though. Gotta bring your.Eris to any Verizon store and pay $200. This will be an "incredible" upgrade

    dont listen to him you have two choices.

    flashing the v3 leak which is the same as the OTA OR getting the phone replaced if it is having real issues.

    What is being referred to here is the fact that currently the Eris is not officially listed as one of the phones that will get the 2.2 update. The Droid Incredible is one that is listed.

    The bottom line is that there is no upgrade path from 2.1 leak to 2.1 OTA. They are the same thing, so if you want OTA, reboot and stare at it some more... bada bing... there it is! The difference is what is in the bios (the bootloader), which theoretically can't be downgraded (the device doesn't allow for downgrades of the bios).

    Actually, the reports that surfaced on the Droid 2 (which rumor has it is coming in 2 months) was that it would have a keyboard and be similar to the Droid 1, but with better processing power and a usable keyboard.
