    Good news is the update has started to roll (see BGR). Bad news is it's not 2.x but a 1.6.x version.

    If it is the 1.6, then Nav will work. Are you sure it is 1.6, can anyone verify?

    EDIT: I don't think this is 1.6, I believe that this is still 1.5, but just a minor update of it.

    I also must agree with jlevy and say its 1.5 from what I have read.

    But no worries, it will come.

    That's what I thought. This is a very minor update.

    It is not an actual OS update, just a simple revision on the current OS.

    It doesn't address battery life issues...but may be fixing the 1x/3G issue, it will help. Also for people that still have bad battery issues, I have read that first batch of eris' could have been bad, and an exchange is necessary. The newer ones, from what I hear are really good or I should say significantly better.

    That is correct sir. Just some minor bug fixes. I believe the anticipated rollout for OS 2.0 is January.

    am i the only one that feel as if the phone is a little bit more laggy after this update/revision? I can't remember installing anything more than the apps i originally had, but feel the phone is a little bit slower now.

    Try instaling an app called spare parts this should greatly speed things up.

    And I've read a lot of people with MotoDroid's complaining of problems after that update too. Have you seen many issues in your store with the updated MotoDroid Josh?

    Strange. I did the full OS update instead of the OTA one and have had no issues whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I can say that with the exception of once when my phone froze due to weatherbug I have had zero problems. And from a phone perspective, the Eris is much better sounding and holds a better signal than any BB I have owned.

    the update seemd to help.. the last one that came back was 2 days old.. he hadnt even loaded his contacts yet. I loaded a couple of tools I had seen people talk about he left and came back in less than 2 hours with it froze in a phone call again.. i didnt know what to say. It doesnt help that vzw has NO answers for stuff like this.. he upgraded to the MOTO, and I hope he doesnt have any trouble with it.. I thought we might see 2 or 3.. not 11.... of the 11 only 1 we couldnt actually find problems with and kept as used the others we sent back to vzw

    I agree with Jlevy on this one...I also did a full ROM flash and it's been great. If it's acting out, it's usually due to a new app or one of the 100+ that I have loaded :crazy:

    I am really hoping for 2.0 to come soon
