Consolidated HTC RUU, Leak, and OTA Downloads

Here we have in one place links to (almost) every HTC Eris RUU Installer, OTA, and PB00IMG.ZIP downloads. (You can also find some archaic stuff at

The Eris is getting long in the tooth - grab copies for your personal archive. Mostly this stuff is useful only if you have needs for older components (bootloaders, radios, etc) or need to assist someone with a Cupcake (1.5) phone.

Note that the "" (== PB00IMG.ZIP) files from MR1 and MR2 are made available for folks desiring easy access to Cupcake (1.5) components - e.g. the 1.47.0000 S-ON bootloader.

OTAs =====================

OTA files may be renamed to "", placed on the SD card root folder, and then applied to phones with older stock software using the recovery boot. Note that all Eris OTAs were NOT FULL UPGRADES, BUT RATHER PATCH UPGRADES - afaik, they will only work correctly when applied to a very specific HTC software version already on the phone; including the "stock" recovery boot** for that software version. They will not work correctly with Amon_RA or Clockwork recovery.

Note there was a period of time when Google's servers were hosting two separate "July 2010 (2.37.605.4)" OTA upgrades: one of them upgraded existing 2.1 handsets @ v2.36.605.1, and the other upgraded existing Cupcake 1.5 handsets @ 1.17.605.1. Please read carefully.

#02 [ Converts 1.??.???.? -> 1.16.605.1 ] - 1st Eris OTA

79,318,831 bytes ; MD5 signature: d480a50f3fc450d7bc13cb277820c688

#13 [ Converts 2.37.605.4 -> 2.41.605.6 ] - 5th Eris OTA
14,011,520 bytes ; MD5 signature: 503008da4ff106e95efb5700382bce49

** In the Cupcake (1.5) releases, you get past the stock recovery splash screen by pressing the Home (softkey) and End button simultaneously; in the Eclair (2.1) releases, get past the stock recovery boot splash screen by pressing Vol-Up and End simultaneously (a 2nd time if you powered up a 1.49.xxxx bootloader phone with the same sequence).

I performed MD5 checksums against all of these, and cross-checked prior references to insure everything is correct; if you find any reproducible discrepancies or MD5 mismatches when downloading please notify me via this thread.

Awesome. I have a friend with a rooted Eris, upgrading to the Moto Droid. I have a HTC Incredible. If the process is similar I should be able to flash "Eris_LeakV3_v2.36.605.1_PB00IMG.ZIP" by renaming it to "PB00IMG.ZIP" through the bootloader right? And then be able to apply the other ota's by naming them "" through the stock recovery?

First the "OTA_Desire_C_Verizon_WWE_2.37.605.4_2.36.605.1_re" and then "ba92bb2e5034.OTA_Desire_C_Verizon_WWE_2.41.60".

Hopefully I'm on the right track.
I've run RUU's on my Incredible via through hboot, and I assume the process is the same on the Eris.

I infer that you are intending to return an Eris to stock condition. If so, the process you describe will work. Also, you could use the FlashBack21_v2 ROM to achieve the same thing in one pass. The primary difference between the two methods is that the former flashes the bootloader, whereas the latter leaves it unmolested.

Hopefully someone can help - In the wake of MultiUpload's voluntary shutdown, I cannot seem to find the OTA files listed above ANYWHERE. My wife recently bought a used Eris and set it up just the way she likes it, AND THEN we saw that it was still running Android 1.5. I want to get her upgraded without losing her existing configuration so I'm hoping to apply each of the OTAs in order to migrate her to 2.1.

Does anybody know of another location for these OTA downloads, or would be willing to share with me directly? Google, ISOHunt and Usenet have failed me miserably. Thanks.

If its not too late, tied to multiuploads were , and others. Now its shutdown here in the U.S but not intl, so when I went to my multiupload account all these mirrors were showing at the bottom listed. All I did was redirect from original host(MPLD) to, links are different but files are the same.
To do this only the account holder would be able too, I did it for my channel and 100's of files that I had but had to be done 1 after another.
Today I can't even open multiupload from chrome, good thing got it out when we did.

Yeah, I tried using a non-US VPN tunnel to circumvent any blocks and searched via various non-US search engines, and still no luck.

Those are the RUUs, which would wipe out my wife's configurations. I need the OTAs. Thanks though.
