Everyone always posting the disclaimers "If this bricks your phone...yadda yadda yadda" Well the truth is, the Eris is nigh impossible to brick. I DID NOT say that it is impossible, only just about. I was messing around with my other refurb that im sending back (its already messed up, ghost apps launching on their own and the mic didnt work), and i wanted to see what it would take to actually brick a phone. Though I didnt try a whole lot of things, my results may still surprise you. First off, dont try these just to see if you get the same results, im clearly not responsible, results may vary. And to clarify, by brick I mean BRICK. Totally fubar. Not a bootloop, not something you can fix by flashing a different rom, but totally bricked. 1. I flashed an EVO radio. You would think that would brick it all on its own, but nope. It flashed and installed and booted and worked just fine. 2. I pulled the battery while flashing the EVO radio. Also brick-less 3. Pulled battery during PB00IMG.zip install. No brick 4. Flashed various roms for different phones. No bricks 5. I compiled a "special" kernel, one that I knew wouldnt work (I basically just went in and removed stuff at random before compiling). No brick after flashing. In my case, the Eris is insanely resilient. Dont go out and start trying all kinds of crazy BS on your phone now, but you can feel more confident when fashing roms and applying themes.
