I have browsed through the forum and found several explanations on how to, etc. but they are all most confusing to me. Like I said, maybe I've just gone stupid in the last year. Hmm. Anyway, I have the zip file for xtr 5.0.1. That's what I've been running since it came out and love it for everyday!
When I rooted my phone, it seemed so simple! Can anyone give me a straight forward answer and step by step on how to root her little Eris. It's a perfect phone for us, especially with xtr!
Thanks to all the hard working folks who take the time to post helpful hints on here.
Just look up to the second post in this thread - the steps to root are all there.
Is there One-Click-Root?
As for installing xtrROM, again - follow the steps in this fourth post in this thread
, just substituting xtrROM for PlainJane that is mentioned in that thread.
It's really quite simple to do. Best of luck.
