i am trying to root my 2.1 ota eris but have some how failed for 4 days now. i have never rooted an android phone, but have experience installing custom firmwares on consoles and other stuff like that, so this shouldn't be this difficult. i have followed the instructions from the unlockr.com and everything seems normal, but when finished i don't have su access in adb shell. the loader finds the image on the sd card, seems to flash properly, and then reboots. if i bring up a command prompt the serial number of the device shows up, when i type adb shell the $ shows up, but when i type su it says permission denied and nothing ever shows up on the phone. also when i install an app that requires root access but no custom rom they say i have no root access. the tutorial i'm using is at How To: Root the HTC Droid Eris (and Get Android 2.1)(Updated – 04.08.2010) | The Unlockr. i used the second image and now i cant use any other. if i try it says main image is older. update aborted. any help would be much appreciated. sorry for the long post, i was jsut trying to include all info.
