Hi guys. I'm new to the Eris forums having just traded my Motorola Droid for the Eris. I had my Droid rooted, running Ultimate Droid ROM and over clocked to 800MHz. I'm reading through the forum postings here and feeling like I arrived a little late to the party... Couple questions.

1. Is there a post with simple directions for rooting? I'm not a total newbie, I rooted my Droid and jailbroke 3 generations of iPhones. I'm not finding instructions here that I can follow. Probably just not looking in the right place.

2. Is there a root for an Eris running stock 2.1? On the Droid I had to downgrade to 1.5 before rooting.

3. Once rooted, is there a ROM which maintains the Sense UI? I'm not totally wedded to it, I just like the lock screen. The only things I want to do with Root are overclock and wifi tether.

Thanks for your help.
To clarify on my earlier post - I'm running an Eris with the 2.1 OTA update. Also my issue is not with how to do the root, but specifically with which files to download. Seems confusing between the root with stock 2.1, leaked 2.1, and 1.5. Thanks.
