    Last I heard Verizon was forced to update all Eris(es?) to 2.1, which includes the 1.49 HBOOT, unable to be Rooted unless you suceed with the new method. Every refurb I have ever received was 1.49, this began 3-4 months ago.
    Here's to hoping you get one with 1.47 rootable though!

    No sweat. Hope you get one with an easily rootable bootloader, even if you dont, the 1.49 hboots are rootable now...for some.
