    Just wondering but in one of the steps to get it back to a 100% Stock it includes loading in to fastboot and recovering the original bootloader so could this be used to the leak people advantage so that way when it puts the old bootloader on there all we have to do is downgrade

    Could grdlock or someone from the XDA-DEV thats working on it tell me i have 2 Erises one i use as an ipod and the other a phone. and if it does brick can i just reload the 2.1 PB00IMG.zip to fix it

    No this can't be used to the leak user's advantages, as it requires the eng bootloader that comes with the original root rom.

    No way my downgrade would brick a phone unless you lost power, or failed to do a md5sum check for corruption.

    Good job Jcase :)
    I added it to the All things Root Sticky that your teammate Grdlock as graciously helped out with.
    Keep up the good work.

    I have the 2.1 non-rooted leak on my Eris. Can I still downgrade so that i can install the rooted 2.1? Or can I root w/o downgrading?

    As per the giant read notice at my original post, its for users of 2.1 leak only who wish to return to 100% stock.

    Your giant read notice at your original post says its NOT for leak users, and to not even ask. However the quoted text says it IS for leak users who want to return to stock. I'm guessing one of them is a typo or I am dumb as a brick. Good chance for the latter. :D Thanks for the work put in on this.

    Typo on that one, but on my ORIGINAL THREAD, and HOW TO it is in BIG RED LETTERS.

    I won't take responsibility for users failing to read the how to. If people don't follow my instructions for my patches/hacks/roms and they get bricks, they shouldn't even peep up about it. I will merely laugh in amazement.

    As jdub71 stated, YOUR typo caused the confusion. Dont go and get all pissy when u effed up in the first place.

    Now, real simple....wheres the typo? Leak users or not?

    My release threads are generally clear.

    I I am tired of "Your patch is broken, xxx live wallpaper crashes my phone" "Your XXX bricked my phone" "Can I use xxx with xxx?" When its all clearly laid out in the release threads.

    If someone isn't going to read the release thread, don't use my stuff. I am allowed to be pissy with as many complaints as I get, 99.9% being from people not following directions.

    P.S. Its impossible to BRICK/Damage a 2.1leak phone with any of my patches/ROMS/HACKS as only one will even work on 2.1 phones, the others won't pass signature checks.

    Putting stuff like this is helpful how? The dev's bust their ass to get these ROM, root, etc and you post something like this? I am with jcase on this one. You dont think they see stuff like this every day? Why not, hey guys, thanks for this kick-ass thing you just did..Ill stay posted to see when the leak is cracked.

    I am usually a nice guy but after reading how many stupid posts people put just like jcase said, I am now getting upset.

    jcase and other dev's, thank you guys so much for your knowledge and continuous help in making this phone even better every day

    The warnings indicating that you're taking a chance with your device by installing a leaked version of 2.1 are posted in the tutorial on flashing that leak.

    Asking for a way to do something that you were warned could not be done seems a bit (fill in the blank with admonishment of choice).

    Not to mention that the developers working on root, etc around here are volunteering their time and efforts.
