    Is it the same way as to root 1.5 in the sticky above?

    Or are some things different?

    Thanks

    The identical procedure will work.


    Just to be clear, the link that alprazolam provides you (above) only has pictures for Part I of the rooting process. You still need to perform parts II and III - getting Amon_RA's recovery installed (part II), and then loading a dev ROM onto the phone by using the Amon_RA recovery boot menu (Part III).

    If you have fastboot installed on your PC, and you know how to get your phone into fastboot mode (remove SD card, Vol-Down+End/Power then press Send in menu), you can replace all the adb steps in Part II with a single command:

    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot boot recovery recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2.img
    The ROM suggested (Part III) by the "Sticky" post is a little bit dated at this point, and you are free to choose any other ROM - If you want to start with a stable, bug-free ROM to start with that is a little more current, then try either Ivanmmj's Official 1.0 or Jcase's Plain Jane.

    Good luck.

    I've been on the Eris section for 3 days and really there isn't a comprehensive set of instructions for rooting 2.1 OTA. The main set of instructions all of a sudden start referencing Amom Recovery. I wish someone would create an updated rooting guide for 2.1 OTA users.

    (This coming from a Droid user running my own custom ROM and Theme I built.)

    That link works for me.
    And as stated above the instructions are good for 2.1 OTA or 1.5 IF the bootloader is 1.47.

    Just follow the instructions or use the Eris Master Application [R00T] and it will do it all for you.

    There does not need to be separate instructions. If you have 2.1 that you installed from an OTA update, you use the exact same process and steps as if you were running 1.5. The process is exactly the same.

    FYI, Eris Master Application has been temporarily pulled until they (Eclips3 and Jamezelle) fix a "major bug in the app"... :( Monitor their thread over at xda for more info...thanks.

    Thanks for clarifying. I used the other thread (and very helpful irc folks) to root.
