    Basically i am wondering what are the ultimate advantages to rooting my eris. And also would it be worth the risk as it is my daily user and if i bricked it i would be kinda screwed.

    what problems? theres always 'issues' with one rom vs another especially if you're talking about froyo roms, but remember you don't really even need one. root allows you to do so much more even with your stock rom.

    Kaos V38 may not be the best first ROM to choose. You should also download Conap's CFS V8 kernel and flash that from recovery.

    Because you need to install a kernel over Kaos to get it to work without burning battery. It's not exactly the most user-friendly thing for a first time rooter.

    The way that I recall, Kaos once shipped with BFS and most people were not happy with it. All of the rest of the Froyo ROMs are using Conap's CFS.

    just search and lurk around the threads. you should find what your looking for no problem. look under the eris root for dummies sticky and it tells you how to flash over a ROM. you are rooted right?
