    Not getting firmware updates on Android HTC Droid Eris.

    I had bought my Android Eris a few years back and my firmware is old but whenever I try to upgrade my device I get a message saying my device is up to date, which I canít believe. Iím still on version 2.1. Why am I not able to upgrade my device?

    The latest version of Android available for the Eris is version 2.1. Unfortunately it is up to the manufacturers of the mobile phones which is HTC in this caseand the providers of your connection to decide whether to upgrade the phone to the later releases of Android, or not. The Eris was once upgraded from the original 1.5 version to 2.1 but HTC has decide it seems, that the Eris hardware was not up to the mark for running Froyo or that it was not worth the expense to get the phone upgraded as it was no longer being sold at the time when Froyo was released. If you still want to upgrade the phone, it is possible to root the Eris and then run the later versions of Android.

    // For your information update is available only when the there is bugs or error on
    the current version that time Android provide the official update version //


    If the update is not available then you can not upgrade the current version.

    But you can go to the customer care of android and ask for upgrade the current version.
