    I am currently running v3 on my eris with Launcher Pro....I love the look of LP, and dont really care about Sense...I am recieving a replacement phone via Fed Ex tomorrow morning....and after i upgrade the the OTA 2.1, I would like to try rooting....I really like custonizing my phone with v3, but would like it to be faster....I have a few questions...Any feedback would be much appreciated ......

    1. It is as easy to root as installing v3?

    2. Once i do root.... is it easy to customize my phone??

    3. Will I still be able to use Launcher Pro???

    4. Is it easy to mess up my phone doing this?

    5. What ROM should I flash???

    Im really not all that computer smart, so please someone help me out.
    Thanks in Advance:thinking:

    If you are using leak V3 now, then you already know what what OTA-2.1 behaves like. I don't see much point in installing it just to blow it away immediately, should the phone arrive with 1.5 on it.

    Depends on who you ask. The first part of the process, if done manually, is identical to what you did for leak V3. The rest of it, though, requires installing software and drivers on your PC in order to complete the process. So, yes - it is a little bit harder. If you are intimidated by using either the Windows or Linux command line, you might consider using the EMA application install sequence in order to avoid that. (You still will have to install some software and drivers).


    It doesn't disable any of the methods that you used before. I just provides more methods, some of which are quite clunky. (Meaning, you need to use a keyboard and understand the way command shells work on both your PC and on Linux (the phone) )

    no clue.

    The less you know, the greater the chance of messing something up. Yes, you could screw things up. That's one of the reasons why the phone is not shipped rooted in the first place - to protect the consumer from him/herself.

    You know yourself better than we do; but if you think the above statement is a fair one, you probably shouldn't be rooting your phone.

    That sux. How about when the 2.2 leak becomes available, do you think it will run/be installable on an eris w/ 2.1 v3
