    Your phone has HBOOT v1.49. You can't root this phone (yet). NO ONE knows if or when you'll be able to.

    Some people managed to get an Incredible rooted, but until they get better at it(or even find out if the race condition used to root it is present in the eris) us with OTA 2.1 and Hboot 1.49 from the factory are stuck without root
