Android 2.1 leaked out for HTC Droid Eris
A leaked copy of the Android 2.1 firmware for the HTC Droid Eris has made its way to the XDA developers forum. The leak came frim someone who claims to work for HTC in China. The initial version that was posted had some problems, but after a spit and polish shoe shine by the developers at XDA they were able to repair it and flash it onto their phone. The ROM is totally functional and even includes the new Sense UI. As we previously reported, not all of the 2.1 features were part of the upgrade, such as the animated wallpaper. It still could be a while before the official release is launched. Web site Android and Me feels that Google is working on a coordinated release among carriers for the second quarter. Oh, and if you decide to download XDA's handiwork on your phone, well, you could end up with an Android flavored brick. Some other developers are working on porting the code over to the CDMA version of the HTC Hero.Those with the Hero over at Sprint could soon have a leaked 2.1 upgrade of their own. Or, we could all just take a chill pill and realize that the official release probably is not too far away.
