The Offical Root is HERE FINALLY THREAD - xda-developers
"Root is here guys, give us some testing time and more will come."
"Hats off to all the devs, esp to Caboose."
"DO NOT UPDATE TO THE LEAKED 2.1."
"We can go from 1.5, to ROOTED 2.1."
"Not from LEAKED 2.1 to ROOTED 2.1"
Well...it appears that patience may pay off in this instance. Frisco...will you really root a phone after such apprehension with waiting for an official build of 2.1?
I hope that this pans out...it stands to reason that a root may soon be found for the leaked and/or official OTA as well.
While rooting the 1.5 appears to be an exciting endeavor, with nearly unlimited possibilities for configuration, I'm nearly certain I'll remain satisfied with the OTA upgrade when it arrives, rather than rooting my 1.5.
Having said that, I'll most certainly be reading postings from those who are rooting their Erises. I find the whole thing very interesting.
too bad i updated already lol
You just typed exactly what I was thinking.
Yep. Figures. On the day I upgraded....
now that really sucks. ..... .. ..
We will have to see what happens, 2.1 may not be far behind if the exploit has not been discovered by HTC . There are also folks working on the roll back issue. If not, may be having some weird intermittent issues with my phone.
This makes me very sad
Think I would have prefered a rooted Eris
I'd be madder about updating to 2.1 if I didn't love it so much... I guess I'll wait out the root a little longer- who knows, maybe they'll find a way to roll back to 1.5 and leak out the root to the public at the same time?
A lot of eris's will be claimed on insurance over this if this is true LOL
wonder when they will post a rom. So far just the announcement
From the XDA forum "Now to work getting it on 2.1
Don't worry for those who have already updated."
You don't want to go back to buggy 1.5. Relax you'll get what you need. Besides, it's not even out yet.
This is going to be interesting how all this pans out
Well...the way I see it...root is most likely found so now the devs can concentrate on one effort rather than a split effort between 2.1 and 1.5. I'm sure rollback will get a lot of attention as well.
yea they will keep working on 2.1 because a few of the dev's have 2.1 phones already, as for the rooted rom they are still working on it.....not being a techy I have no clue about most of what they are saying on IRC
Yea I'll get my new/refurbished Eris tomorrow.I'll have to make a big decision. I've never rooted before but it sounds like I'll love it more Dthan leaked 2.1. Will we be able to have live backgrounds?
Are you kidding? A rooted Eris will polish your car for you!
Yea I'll prob root I'm sure if I run into a problem I'll find the answer right here. Can't wait
Really? This is great news! Not even sure if rooting is for me, but it will be nice to have that option
I would say it will be the minority off of a few geek forums. Most people won't even know let alone care about rooting. So a small minority total.
Wow! Awesome job dev team! But damn, just damn for me. I'm still lovin me some of this leaked 2.1, but would have much rather preferred root. The leaked 2.1 dialer is really starting to anger me.
Oh well, fingers crossed we can downgrade sometime soon.
If they make it so the fools, I mean folks who installed the leak can go back to 1.5, there will be dancing in the streets.
