    This is a call to arms for anyone still running 1.5 on their eris. We (developers) need people to capture the update process using wireshark (or an equivalent). This is needed for a new root attempt, but sadly all of the devs have already updated to 2.1 so we can't do this.

    First go here and download the RUU:
    http://www.pcdphones.com/downloads/Eris%20MR1.zip

    Next you need to go to verizon's website and login to your account. Click "Suspend/Resume Service" and suspend your phone. You can resume service on the phone after you are done here with no penalties or charges.

    Please follow these directions, taken from the first root thread
    After you are done, DO NOT start the OTA update that it prompts you to do.

    Now we are going to install wireshark and setup the capture environment:
    1. Download wireshark from Wireshark Download for your versions of windows
    2. Install it - make sure you also install WinPcap

    At this point you should turn off any wireless encryption on your router. I know it's not necessary but it makes it easier to go through the captures.

    Setup the wireless on your phone to connect to your wireless router and turn off your mobile data connection.

    After you have turned off the wireless security on your router, we are going to start the wireshark capture.

    • Run wireshark - if you are on vista or windows 7 make sure to run it as an administrator
    • Click "Capture" then "Interfaces"
    • Click "options" next to the interface that your computer has an IP for
    • Make sure to check "Capture packets in promiscuous mode"
    • In the Capture Filter box, type "host <ip_address>" where <ip_address> is the ip address your router gave your phone
    • Make sure that "Automatic scrolling in live capture" is checked so you can ensure the capture is working
    • Click "Start"

    At this point, you should browse the web with your phone. You should see lots of stuff scrolling by in the wireshark window.

    If there isn't, you messed up something above and should try again.
    If there is a lot of stuff scrolling by, continue:

    • Close the browser
    • In wireshark, click "Capture" then "Restart"
    • Reboot your phone
    • On your phone, go to "Settings" -> "About Phone" -> "Check for Updates" and go through with the OTA update
    • After the update is done and your phone is rebooted, go to wireshark and click "Capture" -> "Stop"
    • Then click "File" -> "Save As" and give it a name.
    • Upload that file to Megaupload, or Mediafire, or some other file sharing site, or any private server that I can get access to.

    After you have uploaded the file please message me through the forums with a link to the file.

    Thanks a ton.

    That MR1 update is ACTUALLY the MR2 update now.

    There is no more MR1 update.

    Go try to download the MR2 update. Same File Size. Same file.

    If you can ACTUALLY find the mr1 update, that'd be perfect.

    Wrong, the update I link to is 1.16 CONFIRMED.

    I know the files are about the same size but here are the md5 results of the two downloaded files:
    Code (Text):
    1. MD5 (Eris MR1.zip) = e088503cc2eb2295f7bf3b59af203e1b
    2. MD5 (ADR6200_MR2_Upgrade.zip) = 10173f937d78cfa5abd8d5c02cdf8e3c

    We do have a problem though. Immediately after the phone downgrades and boots up, it starts to download the update over the mobile data connection. Since we need to be capturing the data before the update starts, we need to find a way to deny the phone it's mobile data connection so we can enable wifi.

    We have a few ideas to get around this problem.

    1. Do the downgrade in a cell dead zone (meaning absolutely no service, the phone should say "Looking for service" or something similar)
    2. Build a box of some sort that will prevent the 3g radio from transmitting to the satellite (probably aluminum).

    So it looks like there is an easier way. You can login to your verizon account online and "suspend" a phone. This would allow you to downgrade the phone then turn off the mobile data before the update could start. Anyone willing to do this for us?

    I am pretty sure that if I change the settings in EPST or QPST, that I can make sure that no data will come to the phone.

    Has this been tried?

    No, but there is an easier way. You can suspend the phone on verizon's website and after we are done resume service on the phone. I'm about to put that into the first post.

    I can do this at work on thursday. I've never used or seen the aforementioned software but I'll figure it out.
