Verizon Droid Eris 2.1 update ACTUALLY rolling out

It seems as if Verizon is really rolling out the Android 2.1 update for the Droid Eris, except at this point its been going out on a limited basis. That said, they have been talking about it almost no-stop on their Twitter account. I spend a few minutes reading through the mess, which appears to consists mostly of Verizon answering the same questions over and over. Still, a few tidbits from their stream include details such as;

“The roll out will begin 5/11 and can take up to 2 weeks to receive for all phones.”

And when asked if there was a way to force the update they replied with a simple;

“No way to force it the release is random and once you receive it you will receive a notification.”

And interestingly enough;

“No it can only be installed through the ota.”

I guess at this point the only thing we can do it sit back and wait and hope that we receive the update notification alert. So far nothing yet here, and given the odds (I have three Eris on hand) you would think I have a slightly better chance of seeing it at least once.
