    That said, what is the "safest" ROM to use for someone like her ? Keeping SENSE is almost a requirement. Is Evil Eris a good choice ?

    Sense able 2.0 is actually ivan's stable t2 build with a theme over it so I would say that's the best version.

    yep. and after you get root, i would recommend getting a program called titanium...makes installiong your backs up piece of cake....and after all your settings and apps been reinstalled, do a NAND backup so that if she messes something up, you just go right back to it

    Just be sure to follow the steps exactly when installing the sense-able rom, like wiping the data and etc. The first time i didn't wipe the data and the phone kept rebooting over and over, so i wiped the data and reflashed it and all was well.

    But yeah do steps 1 and 2 and then instead of flashing the rom they suggest use sense-able v2.0, don't worry about .7, go straight to 2.0.

    Overruled.... :( She said "you're not hacking my phone !". I even offered to trade her phones (we both have Eris') so I could have a 1.5 Eris that I could root.

    Very easy to swap phones via IMEI number on VZW.com

    Tell her you aren't hacking it, you are unlocking it. Theres a difference. Hacking is usually a negative term, maybe using another term will sway her to let you do it.

    Activate your phone on her number overnight and change everything to match what she has now. Job done.
