So, some chinaman working for HTC decided to bless us all with some Eclairy goodness, complete with drivers and all! If I'm not completely mistaken this should be very possible to port over to the Hero, so let's see you take your best swing at it, devs, you can do it! I'm even going to try it for myself, I'll post it if I can get it to work (Mind you I'm no experienced dev, but I'll give it a shot anyway, can't wait for a flawless 2.1)
DISCLAIMER: Do NOT flash the rom in the thread, it will brick your phone. (I didn't flash it, just thought I'd say it since some people don't seem to tell the difference between hero, sprint hero and eris)
edit: apparently the first link is corrupt. There is, however, a patched version later in the thread. Here's a direct link: hxxp://grense.no/android/android.2.1.droid.eris/PB00IMG.zip (Don't flash this one either)

Who thinks these leaks are endorsed by HTC as a backdoor to public beta testing, no strings attached? Remember the 2.73 build "leaked" about a month before public release.

So the Eris is that close to our hardware that it can be ported then ?

Good news all round I imagine, both for Sense ROM's and AOSP ROM's.
There will be some busy chefs over the next few days, and a hell of a lot of flashing going on

Yeah - very close indeed.

I'm annoyed that I have plans on Friday night, so I don't have a lot of time to do it over the next couple of days.

I'll get around to it Saturday at the latest.

Can't believe this has been deliberately corrupted that is awesome (as a joke). I would not be surprised at all if HTC have leaked this on purpose, companies do that all the time (including music companies) however they would never admit it.

I asked head office for a leak of the 2.1 Hero rom last week. Broken or not broken... I'd fix it.

They completely ignored me!

A rom thread with almost 400,000 views and they ignore me - lol.

Anyway, we have something now.

I just wish I had the time over the next couple of days to port it. Someone might beat me to it, but by Saturday, I'm hoping it'll be Villain 3.0 FINAL.

There is an uncorrupted version in the thread, people have flashed it to their Droid Eris(es) and it apparently works just fine :P
