    So, I know when I installed Evil Eris 2.0 that i got an e-mail welcoming me for activating my Nexus One (hilarious, btw).

    I went into my e-mail to grab the link for my official beta that I have. It said, "can't download because your phone is not an Eris."

    I'm wondering; is it just with this Rom, or is it with all forms a rooted phone, that the device isn't considered an Eris. This also seems to be preventing me from installing Skype...which i will really need to do when I go away in a few weeks.

    Hope that makes sense, i'm just a bit confused.

    Might just be the rom because EE is based on another build LEGEND if im not mistaken.
    Try another rom like Ivans, his is stock with root so thats the one i would try.

    Same thing happened to me, in that I flashed EE 2.0 yesterday and got a Nexus One Welcome email...
    I haven't run into problems with the phone not being recognized as an Eris, but I'm not as "thorough" a user as probably most who are rooted...
    Just my 2 cents...
    Loving Root though...don't get it twisted!! :)
