    I think that you may need to follow Erisuser1's procedure in this thread that starts with this post: http://androidforums.com/eris-all-things-root/556826-stuck-in-boot-up-screen.html#post4475687

    This will root it as part of the process, but it's possible to bring it back to stock unrooted, if you wish.

    It looks very complicated (maybe it is), but it has rescued some phone that are in your condition. If you follow that thread, several of us walked the user through all of the steps. If you want to stay stock/unrooted, you can stop at this post number 61: http://androidforums.com/eris-all-things-root/556826-stuck-in-boot-up-screen-2.html#post4482095 with the step that says:

    - Choose "Flashback21_v2.zip" and press the SD card to confirm.

    After restarting the phone, you'll go through the setup for the phone, and it will be the latest version of the software, not rooted, completely stock (except that the bootloader, which is S-OFFl; that will give you the ability to recovery your phone in the future using fastboot commands, which is a good thing.)

    The root folder, or root directory, is the top level of a storage device. If you store files in a folder on the SD card called "Documents", the "Documents" folder is contained in the root folder.

    Booting is starting your phone. Rebooting is restarting your phone.

    Flashing is using a particular piece of software called recovery to write custom software to the flash storage of the phone.

    It's possible that the phone is trash. It probably had nothing to do with removing the SD card. If you follow those instructions carefully, there is a chance that the phone will work again. However, the Eris is now a phone that has not been sold for three years. Perhaps it's time to upgrade to a new phone? That's only a question that you can answer.
