The Eris is not shown specifically, but as I dug into their wiki (public:unrevoked3 [RootWiki]
) it mentioned the Eris is supported as the DesireC.
I used this to root my Eris last night and it went rather smoothly.
Be warned: Unrevoked installs the Clockwork Recovery, and that has been known to leave Erises bricked. You may really want to install Amon-RA recovery instead, as soon as possible.
See this thread: Amon_RA 1.6.2 Custom Recovery: trackball not required!
You'd be Scenario 3 or possibly Scenario 5.
We now have methods to recover from this, but it's pretty complicated and a lot more work than installing Amon_RA now.
