New Eris Rom. [Bob's Rom] 4/3/12
So there is an updated Cyanogen Mod 7.2 for the Eris released. See this post for more details
Thanks to XDA member "bigrat" for pointing it out.
I tweaked this new version and removed all the extra stuff again. See the list below from the previous version. I got a few of the features I wanted added to this version.
3d Gallery is out 2d Gallery is in.
Hosts file updated should block most adds.
DNS settings changed. Still uses a public provider (Comodo Secure DNS) The Google ones are still in there for backup so you should resolve no matter what.
Removed the XtrSense boot animation. Replaced it with a Black screen. I think it boots faster now.
LCD Density is back to 160. 150 breaks the Market sometimes and it's hardly noticeable.
Here are some source links (Thanks Doogald!)

Here is the link the current version of Bob's Rom
Google Apps if you want them (not installed by default)
From Myself (same file just mirrored)
Also I decided to make an archive for all the Eris stuff I have collected. If you want me to host your stuff send me a PM and I'll put it up. If I have your stuff and you want it removed PM me and I'll gladly take it down.
Have a look here
I would like to add .zip files that can be downloaded and flashed to the eris that contain the packages I have removed. I had a request for the calender and calculator. I need to see how legal it would be to just include these as an extra flashable .zip
Also I recommend the FullThrottle Data fix flash this before Google apps
And Most of all thanks for the feedback, encouragement, and assistance! I really appreciate it.
Ok Eris users. I am new to making android rom's and don't claim to be an expert. This is my first attempt at cooking a rom and I like it so I thought I would share it. This is a learning experience for me.
So it's based off of the Cyanogen Mod 7.1 found here in the Eris forums
Thanks to Cyanogen It's mostly his stuff I just cleaned it out a bit.
I also merged some stuff from XtrSense 5.01
I designed it to be functional not "pretty" It's also light I tried to take out all the extra stuff I could.
So here is what I have done.
Start off with the Cyanogen base and then remove the following
Cyanogen Wallpaper pack
Email app (get Gmail off the market)
quick search box
browser (Go get a real browser non webkit off the market)
music (Get something else off the market)
Calender (I never use it even though I should)
Magic Smoke Wallpaper
Calculator (Find something better on the market)
Cyanogen updater notifications
Live Wallpaper picker
Cyanogen Screenshot tool
That's 15mb of removed stuff.
Then I pulled the following from the xtrSense rom
The gscript tool
and the Boot animation (it's 600k vs the 1.6mb for the cyanogen animation)
Also changed the LCD Density from 160 to 150 to zoom out a bit on the display. More screen area (like increasing the resolution)
Things I am working on. Future additions
I am trying to remove the 3d gallery as it is so slow on the Eris I will be replacing it with the 2d gallery when I can get it and the camera both working right.
Updating the Hosts file to block all those annoying adds. I have this ready but forgot to include it in this build. It'll make it into the next. Some people may prefer this build without it.
Someday I will include BotBrew and ship SSH support and Rsync
Modify the DNS settings. Right now The OS is using google's public DNS to resolve stuff. I'll add in an East coast USA DNS to make it a bit faster. Possibly a few other custom locations too.
Replace the Cyanogen and XtrSense artwork with smaller more bland/boring original artwork.
More as I see fit.
I am not responsible for what you do with your phone. I have tested this on my ERIS but I make no warranty claims. You do this at your own risk.
Download the rom here
Make a Backup. Then make a backup of your backup and store it offsite.
Wipe your data/cache.
Wipe your Davlic cache
Install the new rom.
once you get to the home screen I recommend loading up the android market app. It will give you some messages about "Google Play" Agree and then reboot again. Your Market app will be replaced with a "play" app and you should be able to install stuff.
This Rom does not
overclock your CPU! it leaves it at the defaults. If you want to overclock it's in the Cyanogen Mod Settings menu.
I did not change the cyanogen mod wallpaper not did I change the extsense boot animation I apologize in advance if any of the developers feel that I have ripped them off. I will be changing these when I can.
With the Browser and the 3d gallery removed the Eris Runs super fast. More on this later.
I'm Open to suggestions or comments, I can take Criticism. I may even honor requests given that I like them.
Thanks for the Long read, and Thanks for all the work done by the Devs keeping the Eris alive for this long. You guys Rock!
