Even though this is a BETA release of Evervolv for the Eris, it is stable and has no significant bugs.
I would appreciate it if you posted any issues, questions, or other feedback in this thread...don't be afraid to speak up.

To install: boot to recovery, nand backup, full wipe(data + dalvik-cache + cache), delete .android_secure from the sdcard, flash evervolv, flash gapps, reboot, and enjoy!
A full wipe is NECESSARY if you are coming from a different ROM!

[head]* Q&A *[/head]
Is this CM7?
No, this is a build that started from AOSP. However, some of the fixes and few features have been derived from the CyanogenMod Team.

What do desirec and Eligo mean?
DesireC was the device codename given by HTC before getting it's official name - Eris. Starting backwards, the C stands for CDMA and then continue on...E-R-I-S(ed).
Each supported device also has a short latin word as an Evervolv-specific codename. Eligo is the codename chosen for the Eris. It means to pick out or choose in Latin.

How social is the evervolv team?
You can join us on IRC, irc.freenode.net #evervolv (webchat).
Also, you can follow @preludedrew & @MongooseHelix on twitter for updates and the status of Evervolv.

The Eris is now included on evervolv.com and the OP has been updated to a new beta version. The biggest reason to update would be if you have been dealing with wifi connectivity issues on android 2.3.5 ROMs and want it fixed. Otherwise, you probably won't notice much, if any, difference between betas 1 and 2. As always, let me know about any problems or questions you have.

I've added some addons, extras, & info to the 2nd post that will hopefully be useful to some. Feel free to post, send a PM, or talk to me on IRC if there's other stuff that you think would be good to add as it is a WIP. One thing I'd like to also do is try and keep a tentative changelog that is kept updated to reflect what I'm planning/working on for the next release. I see it as a pretty easy way for me to keep you all updated on what to expect and make adjustments based on your feedback.

1.2.0b3 Released - OP Updated
Get the changelog and download the zip HERE

I'd recommend a full wipe before updating but you can try with just wiping cache+dalvik. Just know that I haven't tested flashing over b2 and you could run into issues.

For anybody that would prefer an ODEX build of v1.2.0b3 - Download Here
I'm thinking about how to best have a link to the ODEX version included on the website so until that happens, I'll just post it here.

Glad to see a couple people here still have an Eris...or have at least passed it on to a brother :android-smile:

Let me know if there's anything that you'd like to see changed/added/fixed.
