    This may have been asked before, but if it has, I can't find it.

    In order to root, I've got to have Flash_image in the system/bin directory. I don't have that file in the directory. I have the flash_image file from the RUU 2.1 leak I installed yesterday, but due to having no root access, I cannot copy the file into the system/bin folder.

    I tried rooting and got stuck at flash_image recovery recovery-RA-heroc-v1.5.2.img because it kept saying "flash_image not found"

    Any ideas?

    this is a perfect example of why running a RUU for a version not yet proven to be rootable is not a good idea. it also shows that after 2.1 is released we may in fact lose the ability to root until the devs figure it out again.

    I didn't mean to post a soapbox that you could stand on. I was simply looking for help, which I did find elsewhere. I got the file where I needed it and went through the entire rooting process. Everything went as expected, but it does not appear that the phone is rooted.

    I'm having a similar issue but, in my case.. it won't let me add the recovery image to my sd card in the last step

    IIRC if you're pc based you need the htc eris (2.1) targeted sync program. Read the fore posted link.

    I am PC based but I've never rooted before. This is my first attempt. I've done a buttload of reading on it and I was gonna flash a cupcake ROM

    I guess it would Step #13 but someone in a previous thread told me to manually place it onto my sd card. I did that and went to step #14 w/ the shell reboot but then my phone wouldn't reconnect after the restart so I got frustrated and quit lol
