Universal 1 Click Eris App Apk - No PCs, No Scripts Needed, EASY

    Preface, This is not a free app, its a try before you buy app. If this app works for you, and you are happy with it. You are required to donate a meal to a homeless youth, or any amount of money to a youth outreach type program.

    This is a TeamAndIRC production. The source code is available on request, if good reason exists.

    I got bored and whipped this up tonight with ECLIPS3. This will root your Droid Eris running 2.1 with 1 click.
    This does NOT erase anything off your phone.You can keep you data/apps with this root!

    If something doesn't work, don't freak just contact me. Tested working on latest RUU.

    Step 1) download and install this apk
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8699733/erisone010.apk - VERSION 0.1.0

    Step 2) Run, read disclaimer, press button

    Step 3) Reboot, once rebooted your phone should have Amon's recovery. Yay.

    Step 4) Use the recovery to flash rootme.zip that is now on your SDCard, or the custom rom of your choice.

    Step 5) Go into settings, and turn usb debugging on. After you have root, please uninstall this app.

    Just that easy.

    Please come chat with use at http://chat.andirc.net or irc.andirc.net #droideris if you have a separate IRC client.

    Coolio.

    If I knew anything about dalvik apps and JINI, I would have done something similar.

    Even though my "root for dummies" doesn't use the SDK or a PC, I was still a little chagrined about how clunky it seemed to be. One click is a definite improvement!

    I am concerned about one thing (as much for my hack as for this) - each "lowering of the bar to entry" admits a fresh crop of users with successively weaker computing skills.

    That's not meant as a slam of anybody, but it does mean that the risk of a user creating a brick is somewhat elevated until we can get all rooters onto the 1.49.2000 (S-OFF) bootloader. At least that creates a safe "backstop" against recovery partition disasters.

    I think the next thing to do would be to get a "one click 1.49.2000" hack put together (or an update.zip equivalent) - something that can also be used to get the engineering bootloader onto their phones, without using fastboot/adb/SDK.

    No promises, but I'll see what I can do.

    If I were to do this to an eris can I still load clockwork mod recovery on it?

    You forced my hand. S=off bootloader 1 click, well maybe 2 click later this week.

    4x4lem,

    Yes, and infact on most devices I normally recommend clockwork. However I am not sure if past issues with the eris were ever worked out, so I went with amon's.

    Ok, I have an update.zip for hboot, just need to hustle someone into testing it. Any takers?

    When I get my eris I will try it for you if it isn't already tested by then. I haven't even won the auction for it yet though. The reason I'm getting another eris is because I'm not allowed to have a camera phone at work and I lothe the black berry I'm switching back and fourth with my incredible. I'm thinking of physically damaging the camera so it won't work, but a better idea would be soft disabling it. Would any of you cooks be able to take a rom and disable the camera, that way if I were to ever want to sell the phone I could load a different rom and have a functioning camera? The idea came to me when they were having issues getting the cameras to work on the incredible with certain roms, but I still don't want to take the chance of breaking my screen at work.

    Not trying to thread jack, it just seems as if there is some talent in this thread.

    I really hate to ask a stupid question, but, How do you "Flash" a file?
  8. scary alien

    You "flash" (overwrite flash memory) a file via an option in the installed custom recovery partition (usually Amon_RA's or ClockworkMod). There's an option, "Flash zip from sdcard" in the recovery menu.

    Usually you flash a custom ROM .zip file or an update file that contains, well updates, to your existing ROM.

    There are other ways to flash, but this is the typical / usual method.

    I want to root using "Universal 1 Click Eris App Apk ". Will I need to use a custom rom or is it already there?
  10. jcase

    jcase Well-Known Member

    Totally optional.

    I downloaded and installed Universal 1 Click Eris App Apk . When I rebooted I could not find Amons Recovery. What am I doing wrong?
  13. jcase

    jcase Well-Known Member

    Did you run it and press the button? What shows up when you boot into recovery?
  14. wyzird

    wyzird Well-Known Member

    It does not boot into recovery.
  15. jcase

    jcase Well-Known Member

    I need more specific details. You have to boot it into recovery yourself. Turn the device off, and hold volume up and press power.

    What does it do?
  16. wyzird

    wyzird Well-Known Member

    It just boots up like it normally does
  17. jcase

    jcase Well-Known Member

    Ok, thats a bad recovery flash. Happens on the eris using flash_image sometimes.

    Run the app again, if it continues you, come see us on http://chat.andirc.net and someone will help you.

    Vol Up + Power does not work me either. I do Vol DN + power, then choose "recovery".

    haha I actually put she first, then he/she, the he. Wasn't sure, took best guess based on the comunity's makeup.

    I've already rooted using a different method, so, if I want to fix my vol up + power issue (not going into recovery), I can still use this app?
  24. wyzird

    wyzird Well-Known Member

    Now that I have root following the 1 click method, where do I go from here? I have been reading up on rooting, but not with this method. Do I need to install a custom rom? What am I able to do with the setup the way it is?
