    First of all, to anyone going “I haven’t got it yet,” realize that even if this IS starting today, it takes WEEKS to get it out to everyone. So chill.

    Second, I have not found one SHRED of substantiated evidence that this update is really happening today. I could just as easily create screenshots of counterfeit update notices and post them all over the net. The first place I would post it would be 4chan, and then EVERYONE on there would spread it around like wildfire.

    Not that I did; I am patiently waiting for 2.1 for my Eris, but I didn’t expect anything until next month.

    Finally, is down right now because of all of this chatter. If it were a hoax, then someone is really getting a good laugh.

    So it iS Sprint that’s screwing Hero users over!! They think they’re slick by trying to push it back so people would just give up on the Hero and just buy the Evo. Well news Flash Sprint NOT EVERYONE CAN UPDATE IN JUNE!!! I gotta wait until NOVEMBER!! GIVE ME MY FU****KKINNG UPDATE ALREADY!!!!

    Well I was having a few software issues with my Eris and I called tech support to order a replacement and was told that the update was going to begin today. He said to wait for the update to see If it fixed the problem. So I think that’s reason enough to believe that the update is coming out now.

    I called Verizon customer support and they said the update was approved on the 7th and starts today.

    I updated my ERIS to the leaked 2.1 rom. You guys will be happy with it..

    BUT my leaked rom did not have pinch to zoom in anything but photos and internet….

    DOES the official ROM have the Nexus One lock screen????

    Update today. SUCKS! Must Active sync your password TPYE IT IN!) to even unlocck SCREEN. Pain in the butt upgrade, Doesn’t save credentials in memory and no fix in sight. If I didn’t have to use my office sync I wouldn’t. ALSO, no voice to text support like with the Motorola. I’m changing.
