I am going to try to make this simple and easy to answer. I am looking to root my eris. 1. I was running a leaked 2.1 and I received the july OTA update yesterday. This means I can now root, correct? The July update was an official full operating system update, right? If the answer is no, than disregard the rest of this. 2. The main reasons I want root are speed and the ability to uninstall and strip down the extra crap I don't need. I'll want to uninstall - -Mail, I'll keep gmail app. I don't need 2 apps of the same. -Peep, footprints, quickoffice, stocks, teeter, etc. -I definitely don't need Sense. So if the ROM I choose has these by default I can strip them out correct? 3. I don't need a fancy ROM to start with something simple and stable. Is the plain vanilla ROM for me? 4. Recommendations or anything I should know? I am a linux user and relatively comfortable doing terminal work.
