Hi, I'm a big noobie (nub nooob newb etc..) coming down to Droid phones... or phones in general. So, I just got my Droid Eris today, used on CL. I was thinking about rooting the phone since a lot of people mentioned about rooting the phone would open a lot of things to be done to the phone and also I wanted DroidWall (or if anyone knows another app to disable data, I would be grateful.) When I got this phone, it came with firmware 2.1 already installed by the previous owner. I read that it would brick your phone if you tried to root your phone with 2.1 already installed onto the phone. So, how could I continue to root the phone? Would it be now be impossible? Don't want to brick my phone on the first day... Here's some random info that you might need, (idk if it's important..) hboot: 1.46 (haha, I ment to type 1.46) firmware 2.1 Baseband: 2.42.00.04.12 Kernel version:2.6.29-8a03cb9a Build number: 5.36.605.1 Software number: 2.36.605.1 Also, I don't know if the last owner rooted it or not or did anything to the phone. When I got it, it wanted me to activated it was cleared of anything. Thank you!
