Android 2.1 update has been rolled out for Droid Eris and many have already received the OTA update (Over the Air) but it seems like Verizon Wireless is serially sending out the OTA which means many users will have to wait for probably another couple of days if not weeks to get Android 2.1 running on their Eris. Not anymore. You can download and update to Android 2.1 manually.

I have already posted the complete easy procedure to manually update to Android 2.1. But for the procedure you’ll need the firmware file. Here’s the direct download link for Android 2.1 firmware:

Download Android 2.1 Directly From Google’s Server

Note: HTC has warned that manually updating your phone will wipe it off and return it to the factory settings so make sure you backup all your important data to SD card before doing the manual update. Nothing to worry though.

Question Will Droid Eris updated to Android 2.1 support Flash 10.1?
Answer NO, Only Motorola Droid and Google Nexus One have the horsepower for Flash 10.1
