    hey this is my first time trying to root my droid eris and i have a few questions
    here they are:

    i don't really want to load the android2.1 official rom onto my phone can i just flash the vinilla-droid rom right away instead of the eris official rom?

    i am rooting it using a mac and a droid eris running the OTA android 2.1, should that work?

    Not sure about the OTA question. But if you do achieve root, you should be able to flash the Vanilla ROM. I am also running Vanilla and it is the most bug free one I have used.

    Good luck.

    Sorry I have zero experience with a mac. I think there are some instructions somewhere over on XDA in the Eris forum for rooting with a mac.

    after the step with the recovery image you can install any rom you want. so you do not have to use the eris21official
