Those using either the Motorola Droid or the HTC Droid Eris can go ahead and upgrade to Android 2.1 if they want. Of course there is a big catch that comes along with that statement. This is an unofficial upgrade path which is coming courtesy of leaked ROM’s. Still, for those that cannot wait any longer at least there is an option. And yes, these ROM’s do come complete with HTC’s Sense UI and according to the stories they also appear to be the official updates. In other words they are said to be the ones that are expected to come as the official OTA update. But again this is an unofficial update path and doing this may cause some issues in the future.
And for those that are feeling brave, that ROM for the Droid Eris can be found at the XDA Developers forum (link below). As for the Droid, check the information at Droid Life (link below). Personally I am sporting the Droid Eris, and despite how much I would like to update past 1.5 I think I can handle the extra wait.
