Anyway to root a droid eris which has leaked 2.1 but has never been rooted
Yup. It's become a pretty easy process these days, just need to download some items. Here's a link for you to follow:
*EDIT* Go with Surgeon's thread:
Or here http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/125436-detailed-leak-root-tutorial.html
Oh crap man, I'm sorry buddy. Your thread is the way to go, I should have posted it. Won't happen again.
Haha its ok man, I just saw he had a few posts and thought as detailed as possible would be best for him. Guess what you are 1 post from 1,000!!!!
I see Bishop's 1k post above! Nice going, Bishop!

edit: Hey, stop posting! you're messing-up your counts!
Have you seen what #1000 is? haha.
Here is his #1000 lol http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/125436-detailed-leak-root-tutorial-5.html#post1186529
Nice, right? I shoulda just stayed in bed.
I'm a power-of-two / binary kind-of-guy, so I will also celebrate and recognize post #s 1024, 2048, 4096 (Frisco's getting close to this, lol), etc.
p.s., apologies for thread-jacking...now, back to our regularly-scheduled programming...
Just rooted yesterday (was on 2.1 OTA), and ho-lee-shit, I love my phone now. Provided the process works for you, you will not be sorry at all!
And wait til you see the new method, so easy it's "stupid".
It makes my write up look like crap lol, its a long process tho
I still think yours may be easier. The new way is great, but I like the PC aspect of it. And keep in mind how many people your thread has helped/is helping/will help.
EU1 is the mac daddy! That process looks long, but I think it's because of all the pictures. That method looks nearly bulletproof and is universal. Wow!
Yeah, but don't tell surgeon, he worked hard on his fantastic write-up and support; I think he's sensitive right now...delicate too. Since he and I are both Texans, I suppose I should offer to help him find EU1 to take him outside and beat the crap out of him.
*Note* Just kiddin' EU1.
Does this work for Hboot 1.49? Could you point me to what root process I need for my Hboot?
Hhaha its fine, his write up is better
So by universal I should be able to root with a 1.49 Hboot??
Yes. As well as following the process laid out by surgeon. Depends on what you prefer, EU1's process does not involve a computer, or driver, SDK installs, etc.
Ima gunna go hide in the mountains. If you come lookin' fer me, I'm the one with the fishin' pole.
Haha. Hear that surgeon? It's the first lead..."mountains"...."fishin' pole".
I think its a trap.
Hey, alprazolam is also in the 1000-posts club! Congratulations!
