Last Friday we reported that a support site for the HTC Droid Eris OTA update to Android 2.1 had gone live, but no details were revealed as far as the exact date were concerned. Reports are now coming in that the update is planned to begin its roll out to Verizon subscribers tomorrow, the 11th of May. Well, it is “tentatively” planned for tomorrow. We all know how that goes…
Even if it somehow manages to get delayed again (that could never happen, right?), Eris owners can still rest easy knowing they will probably get their update before the many unfortunate Samsung Moment and HTC Hero owners. We’ll be sure to let you know when the roll out is a go, or you can keep your fingers crossed and spend your day refreshing your system update screen. It’s up to you, really.
The update is mandatory and will wipe all of your stored info not on a microSD card, so remember to back up all of your important files. Your contacts will be wiped, but they are synced oh-so-handily with the cloud, so you shouldn’t have to worry about that part.
