Hey everyone. I am a totally Android Newb and am getting an Eris today via fedex. I have been a Blackberry user for years and love it, but purchased a refurb Eris from Vzw for cheap just for fun. When I got into BB's a while back I joined a forum and learned a ton from nice people so I thought I would do the same with this. I have read a lot about rooting the Eris and have gotten some conflicting views. I played around with unofficial builds and such on BB's so I am not new to this stuff, just to the Andriod stuff. What is the consensus...should I, or should I not (at this point) root my Eris. (I don't know what it will come loaded with 1.5 or 2.1) If yes...with which build? The main feature I really want is wireless tethering (wifi) for my laptop (pc). I also hear that the HTC sense UI can be slow...true? or false? Will rooting this beast fix that problem? A super snappy device makes for a super happy user. I have cruised through a lot of threads and have seen a bunch, but there is a lot of info. Any words of wisdom would be awesome. Thanks.
