    i followed all the instructions to root the eris and i'm pretty sure all has gone well.

    Just to preface, i am technically adept. Just no linux/android experience ever.

    So while I believe for the most part all is ok, I still have some problems.

    The phone is rooted, while running normally & attached to the pc in usb debugging mode, from the command prompt doing an adb shell only gets the $.

    So i figure maybe i did something wrong, i know i can see i've made the right steps when doing a vol up + power on, so i find drocap, a root only app. I install it, i'm able to take screen caps no problem.

    So i figure let me try booting into recovery mode, NOW when i type adb shell i get the #

    So I wanna see if i can remove some of the apps I don't want
    "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system"
    works fine
    "Now type "cd /system/app" and then "ls"
    works great, i can see all the apps but it still isn't letting me delete.

    That was in the afternoon.

    I took a break, had dinner, tv, when i returned....whatever it was i did earlier just evaporated
    I don't know if i omitted anything but when i do
    "cd /system/app" it says it's invalid, but if i do a plain "ls" then i can see all the folders of the phone but i can't get back to that system\app folder

    what am i doing wrong ?

    thanks for your patience

    open a command prompt in your /tools/ dir of the sdk, type adb shell and then su...you will then get a prompt on your phone, hit always allow. then you all set
