    Ok I've seen so manyyyyyyyy people have problems with flashing the recovery.img its not even fun anymore repeating the directions over and over. The Other day I found the ROM MANAGER app on the market installed it and flashed the recovery, I decided to keep the CLOCKWORKMOD recovery because I think the nandroid backup is a lot better than the one that comes with RA recovery img, because You can actually do partial backups...What does this mean.you can restore data, boot, cache, and also supports restoring sd-ext but we don't have that yet, separately.
    so how do you do this..


    1)Open market and search ROM MANAGER
    2)download and install ROM MANAGER. (should be the first result, the one with a man with a hat)
    3)Open Rom Manager and click on Ok to the screen that pops up its just telling you that If something happens He's not responsible for your phone.
    4)After pressing Ok click on Flash ClockWorkMod Recovery
    5) Then confirm that the recovery you want is Droid Eris (CDMA)
    6) it will download the Recovery this will take a few seconds Then sometime before or after starting the download, the SU PERMISSIONS screen will pop just click on ALWAYS ALLOW.
    7) Let the app do its thing and it should give you a confirmation that recovery was flashed.

    Now you can either uninstall the app or keep it to keep checking if any roms are put on the rom manager, at the moment there isn't any roms to download for our phone.

    Just to let you know to go back to a previous menu press the end button its not vol down like on the RA recovery.
    If you have any questions let me know And I'll try to help ya out.

    You were on 2.1 root rom the original?
    the one without the SU app?
    I was talking to the devs and they told me it could be done, but you wouldn't get the su permission like I said above, It should just install... How did you end up getting a recovery img on your phone?

    I. Rooting your phone (the easiest part)

    1. Download this file: PB00IMG.zip (md5: 63eacc5ede3b179f95dc22d8ef585f94)

    2. Place PB00IMG.zip onto the root directory of your sdcard.

    3. Power down your phone.

    4. Hold Volume Down + Power On. This should bring you to a screen saying "HBOOT" and some other stuff. Wait for it to load the image, and it will say Push Activate. Push the trackball button to continue. The process will take around 5-10 minutes. The first time your phone boots up it will take a lot longer than normal.

    5. Your phone is now rooted. :)<-------- ive done this thats it

    Irc Is like a chat room.. Download an Irc client like xchat or IceChat and then connect to this server
    irc.thefuzz4.net
    and join the room #erisRootHelp
    And see if you can get help because I don't know of any other way to flash the recovery.img

    There is no way to go back without a recovery.img
    have you tried re-flashing the root rom just in case something went wrong?

    You should have installed the recovery image right after rooting the phone, this way you can make a backup and go back at anytime and it also allow you to flash new roms within the recovery console. Its the second step in the rooting guide and easily the most important step. Personally i wouldn't go any further until the recovery image was installed, otherwise theres no security in being able to return the phone to any state after you cross that line.
