It’s a very simple process and I, as well as a coworker, have successfully done it. Well worth the update.
Step 1: Download the 2.1 package
Step 2: Put the package .zip file on the SD card of your phone. Leave it in its .zip format.
Step 3: Turn off phone.
Step 4: Turn on phone by holding the power and send buttons at the same time.
Step 5: Press the volume down button, when prompted, to enter hboot
Step 6: When asked to update, press the trackball (this is the Action button)
Step 7: When asked to reboot, press the trackball.
That’s it. Have fun!
Oh yeah, I’m not responsible if you break your phone.

This does not allow for the animated backgrounds.
You stole the credit from the original author. and didn’t even change the picture. http://thekrtek.net is the original author. Link to this article or take down yours.
I’m friends with the owner of thekrtek.net and will be notifying him when he signs on tonight.
Wouldn’t say I stole it, I left his name on for a reason. Regardless, I edited the post to give all credit to your pal. He’s where I got my info anyway. I’m sure the Eris community is grateful, to say the least.
