    Exclamation Update is is being pushed out now...

    Sadly it is not 2.1... but the follow fixes are included.

    While on a call and the device is in screensaver mode, pressing the
    End key now takes the device out of screensaver mode, and a second press will end the call.
    On-call mute and speakerphone icon functionality is enhanced.
    Upgraded functionality after activation eliminates the delay users were experiencing in receiving their first call.
    Device now switches effectively from 1x mode to 3G.
    Device no longer requires users to reselect a default email after power-cycling.
    SMS and MMS messaging delivery is improved.
    Eighty-character MMS/SMS message subject lines are now allowed. Improved picture messaging functionality allows messages from LG
    phones to be opened.

    Is this for the HTC Droid Eris? If so, how do we get this update? I went in to the settings - about phone - system updates but it tells me that I'm already up to date

    It is starting to roll out. It may be a few days before all Eris owners get the update pushed to their devices. There is a good chance you will be able to do it manually by tomorrow similar to how the Moto Droid 2.0.1 was leaked.

    According to PhoneNews.com:

    Verizon has begun uploading and staging the long-awaited Motorola Droid and HTC Eris firmware updates for rollout over the air in the next 48 hours according to reports received today.

    Preliminary confirmation suggests that the Droid update does indeed fix the autofocus bug found last month as well as improved battery life, audio quality and a new unlock screen.

    As previously reported, the updates for each device address multiple issues encountered since launch early last month, the biggest of which concern the aforementioned autofocus bug found on the Motorola Droid and a general maintenance update for the Eris before being updated to another Android version in the first quarter of next year.

    Downloaded, thanks.

    Wow, 113 MB! The update for the Moto Droid was only 10 MB.

    Instructions for install? I did the manual update on my Moto Droid, are the instructions the same? I wouldn't know how to hold the X key while pressing the power button on the Eris, lol.

    Extract to your PC, plug in your Eris and run the tool. The rest is automagic

    How do I know if I already got the upgrade downloaded?

    The phone tells you it's going to update and asks you to continue. If you haven't seen this, you haven't got it yet.

    @xliderider - no problem. And I agree, HTC makes everything pretty easy. Probably cuts down of the support questions a lot.

    Check your Menu, Settings, About Phone, Firmware Version at the bottom of the screen.

    No, this file is from HTC. They sent it to VZW for testing and rollout to their stores. I can't say it's 100% Verizon approved, because it isn't they will probably try to get it removed, simply so they have some sort of control of it's distribution.

    It's signed by HTC's security keys, which at this time are impossible to crack, or it wouldn't run on your phone.

    Is it normal to loose all settings?

    Is that a legit update? I don't wanna install it and it not be the same update everyone else will automatically get later. I might just wait.. Seems fishy or something..

    Updating this way (RUU) it's normal to lose your settings. I have no idea if the OTA version overwrites, as I have no access to it. yet.

    @adrenalinerush12 this update comes direct from HTC, which is verified by their private signing keys. All updates get posted to the web in this manner, it's up to the carriers to remove them if they would like to control its distribution

    So it looks like my 1X-3G locking/connection issue is better, but it is totally not gone. Any ideas?

    The guys over at XDA say that the update is suppose to way smaller(6.5mb) and that this seems like the entire newer rom.

    Thank! Just did the upgrade. I'll let you know my findings (if any). By the way, I'm still looking for a way to boost the incoming call volume as I find mine to be very low. I've heard mention of having to "root" my device and install "Louder Volume" but I'm not sure if this will solve my problem. Any suggestions?
