    Ok, I am going to Root my phone..

    I have 1.5 and I really want the 2.1 update and all the abilities that come with rooting your phone.

    I know a lot about the Eris but i don't understand Rooting it and what the differences of ROM's are or what they even do.

    I have read the tutorial many times so i know HOW to install it, im just wondering if you guys could give me some hints, warn me what NOT to do so i don't brick my phone, and what are ROM's exactly and what are the differences from each custom ROM?

    Thank you very much

    The differences between roms right now is just how they look , nothing to big, some come with different apps and stuff but nothing that will make a huge difference.
    I would say its like 99% impossible to brick your phone, I myself haven't heard of anyone bricking their phone while doing to rooting process.

    I just rooted my phone last night. I'm rather fond of the Sense-able 2 rom and would recommend that to you.

    Yea sensable 2.0 is Ivans rom with a theme over so IMHO thats the most stable rom to have right now.

    Do eet! VanillaDroid is good stable ROM as well (at least in my experience), that is if you don't mind going without Sense.

    I rooted my Eris last night and haven't found any reason not to. I wish I did it sooner. Just follow the directions on this forum and you should be good to go.

    Both Sense-able and VanillaDroid are good roms.

    Ok so i am going to go with Sense- Able and then going to install Helix on it..

    Another quick question, how can i back up all my apps?
    Is it the same way as the 2.1 leak that i can find on the other eris board?

    well once you get rooted the easiest way to back up is to either use Titanium which is in the market, or over on the XDA boards Eclips3 has an app that will do the whole process for you
