HTC Droid Eris
Manual Update to Android 2.1

This IS the official OTA release, albeit downloadable as a ZIP file. I'm in the process of doing it right now, and it seems to be working just fine. If the process appears to freeze up at any particular point (namely when deleting files), then BE PATIENT. It should resume shortly. I've been hearing that the process takes anywhere from ten to twenty minutes.
Anyone else have good/bad luck with the process?
By the way, you can view and edit your custom dictionary from the keyboard settings (by tapping on the gear icon on the keyboard). Very useful. Plus, it's hilarious to see how random my custom dictionary can be.
As for the home screens, I find myself using them differently as a result of the Sense UI enhancements in 2.1, so I didn't mind redoing my home screens. I'm more into widgets now, since I don't need to scroll through each screen individually anymore.
Thanks in advance for the help!!
