    Now that I'm rooted, I'm anxious to try out some custom ROMs, but too impatient for Eris-specific ones to be released.

    Do ya'll think ROMs made for the Hero will work fine on the Eris?

    It's conceivable that Hero roms will be adapted that might work.

    But ones that exist will, certainly, brick your phone, if they work at all.

    Slightly different hardware all around.

    Different camera board. We have 262k color screen, hero has 65k. Even the processor is a slightly different part.

    It's not far off. But even the subtle differences make it work or not work. Or if it actually boots up at all, probably not do so well.

    the libs need ported and the kernel needs to be changed among other things
