Htc Droid Eris - All Htc Widgets Gone After 2.1 Ota Update / Solution For This

I searched a bunch of threads and i can't seem to find the answer to this.

Just did the ota on my sister's phone, and after restarting all of the htc widgets (clock, weather, calendar, etc) are gone. They don't even show up in the list to add to the home screens.

I thought i read somewhere that there is a way to fix it quickly. Clearing a cache, or re-syncing something, i dunno. I don't remember what thread it was in, or what it was exactly. Searching has proven unsuccessful.

I really don't want to do the factory reset because of having to re-download all of the apps.

Lg Ally - Ota Updates Failing On Reflashed Stock Rom / Cause Of It

I have tried several things and the updates will not install. I started by using allyrr yesterday to flash a custom rom. I reflashed to the stock v8 rom and it wouldn't install the update. So i tried reflashing to v6 with lg updater and then downloading the update and that won't install either. Does allyrr do anything to the ally to cause this?

Htc Eris - Is Ota 2.1 Able To Be Rooted Yet

I had to return my rooted droid eris due to a loose power wire messing with my trackball. On the new eris, i used the official ota update that verizon finally after months of waiting released. I am wondering if this version has been rooted yet. And is it possible to change the dialer without it being rooted. I was able to change the boot screen without it being rooted and wanted to know if i could customize other things also or if the boot screen was the only thing i could customize.

Htc Incredible - Official Ota After Leak Ota - Possible

Ok, so here it is as follows:

I currently have the leaked 2. 2 with baseband 2. 05. 00. 06. 11. So, assuming i were to install the new official ota, my phone will be a brick due to a double radio update, correct?

Is it possible, even via nandroid, to revert back to stock 2. 1 with stock radio? I could then install ruu with unrevoked forever, right? As far as i know, nandroid will not revert a radio alteration.

So is it possible, or am i stuck?

Htc Eris - Leakers Looking For Root

Clearly there are people on these forums closely connected to htc; otherwise the leak never would have made it to us. I am wondering why a way to root the leaks hasn't been leaked as readily as the original leaks were "leaked"?Disclosure - i am not on a leak, i do love my eris though.

Htc Eris - Remove Root Before Re-sale

I have a rooted droid eris, running kaos froyo. I have a new phone now and would like to sell the eris. I already did a data wipe and format of the sd card.

My question - any reason to remove root? Will a new owner have any problem activating this through verizon as is?

The phone ran kaos for me perfectly for a couple of months prior to getting my new phone, just wondering if anyone had any issues with this type of thing.

Htc Eris - Can I Use A Card Reader To Root

I was wondering instead of mounting the sd card on the phone to copy the files if you can just take the sd card out and move the files over by card reader. I found out today that my girlfriend can't find her charging cord and has been just charging her phone in her car while she drives. I was going to try and root her phone tonight but was curious if this would work or not.

Htc Eris - 1st Time Root - Can't Open Any Rom / Fix It

I just rooted for the 1st time using the "on the phone" method. It was very easy until. I got my phone rooted and couldn't flash any rom's. I tried two different rom's and even re-downloaded one and tried again. I keep getting a "can't open 'rom name'/sd card" message! What gives?

Htc Droid Eris - Google Navigation On Eris W 2.1

I didn't see a thread for google navigation. I tested it on the eris and it's fantastic. I stopped by the vzw store and picked up the body glove case for the eris which works with the moto droid mount/case combo. The downside is that the moto droid mount/case combo is $30 and the body glove for the eris is also $30. If you have a moto droid you get both for $30. With the 25% discount i get through my company, it came to $45+tax, which isn't bad at all. It works like a charm for mounting the eris like any gps and it destroys my tom tom one 3rd generation, which i got back in 2007. I haven't tried to voice search for it yet.

Motorola Droid - One-touch App-updates

However, if i could change one thing (flash is coming from what i hear) i wish there was a one-touch application update feature.

It is so annoying to constantly have to update each individual app. I don't care what the update is, i always will chose to update so that it stops bothering me.

Anyone know if this exists or on the horizon.
