    I'm going to try to do what the fella's over at xda are doing to try rooting the eris. For those of you who dont know see this thread Updated root 1.49 - xda-developers

    Okay i'm waiting on my SD card to format while i'm waiting i would like to know the answer to a simple question, If i DO(major if here) manage to get the eris running ADB in recovery and get root, would i just flash Amon's recovery afterwords?

    I doubt i'll be able to do it because i'm a noobie when it comes to root and in no way a developer.

    Another question, I see RUU all over the place and have no clue what it means. is RUU 2.1, 2.1 stock?

    Good luck dude! Lots of folks are pulling for you.

    BTW: RUU = ROM update utility

    Just to be clear, you're not using the RUU are you (you're attempting the XDA 2.1 leak root method, right)? Just wanted to make sure...:)

    I got my phone from verizon with 2.1 and hboot 1.49 S-ON and many people have said that that version is same as Leak V3. If i'm wrong tell me?

    Nope, you are absolutely right, leak v3 is the same as 2.1 OTA (this topic has been well-covered :D)...just wanted to make sure that the RUU wasn't really part of your efforts.

    Thanks and good luck.

    I'm letting my phone charge some more, after about 15 tries and nearly pulling my index nail back when my finger slipped off the vol up button with the cover off. Hurts like an SoB
