Android 2.1 Download: Ready for HTC Eris and Motorola Droid users

 

By Posted 6 Mar 2010, 01:03

There is no denying that Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris owners have been watching Nexus One users with envy as they have been enjoying Android 2.1 for some time now. Thankfully the wait is over and the OS update is now ready for download.

Phones Review reports that Softsailor has issued a warning for those who wish to install the update as it could brick their handset – this means that it is not an official update but a leaked version. They also warn that if you install the upgrade then there is no going back

When you watch the video that was released with the Android 2.1 OS update it looked to be genie. If you want your Motorola Droid or HTC Droid Eris to run perfectly – then best hold off until Google launch the official version of its latest mobile OS. We have to wonder how long it will be before the official version of the OS is released.

    I will believe it when i see it. hell even verizon doesn't support this phone. nor does ea games for that matter.
    even if you get the 2.1, thats all folks.
    stop posting ready downloads here and there, its not responsible journalism and its a lie. since its a good operating system are you willing to fix all the bricks? didn't think so….

    I've seen it and it works great. Got google navigation on my phone now.

    How you would think Verizon doesnt support this phone is ridiculous. EA games? this is a phone, not a psp.

    Stop posting comments on this site, your obviously an idiot

    what do you call aps? some intelectual game. who are you some corporate clown? verizon doesn't offer crap for this phone on line. look, the way to tell if something is actually going to take off is if the major supporting companies jump on it. new technology……. no one is touching it. adobe flash is held out. this phone blows a psp away by the way. every slapstick phone is "supposedly" going to get 2.1 that makes this technology old news. phone or not ask how many users use a game on the thing, load music , or load movies on it , you will see yourself standing alone. you are an island…… seems to me if verizon was interested in technology for the user they would have pulled for the android. motorola dumped this phone out knowing they had something better in the works.
    you are uneducated and obviously a malthusian in technology and dirrection. play your with your calculator app you bafoon.

      I load music, videos, games, pretty much use my Droid to its fullest. Adobe is working on flash 10.1 for the Droid and nexus!! So I don't see how that is not support for the Droid!!
