According to Verizon and BGR, random HTC ERIS users should have received an update right around midnight last night (or is that this morning?).

The new ROM version is 1.16.605.1 and the radio version is Like all OTA updates it will be distributed to some first and then the majority.

So be patient and wait your turn.

For those of you fortunate to have gotten the update, enjoy the following perks:

-While on a call and the device is in screensaver mode, pressing the End key now takes the device out of screensaver mode, and a second press will end the call.
-On-call mute and speakerphone icon functionality is enhanced.
-Upgraded functionality after activation eliminates the delay users were experiencing in receiving their first call.
-Device now switches effectively from 1x mode to 3G.
-Device no longer requires users to reselect a default email after power-cycling.
-SMS and MMS messaging delivery is improved.
-Eighty-character MMS/SMS message subject lines are now allowed.
-Improved picture messaging functionality allows messages from LG phones to be opened.

And let us know how it’s going.
