    so i recently bought a used htc eris off of ebay (for verison) and i rooted it just to improve little things in the phone. (fix bluetooth, emulators, ect.) After this was going fine until one day i decided to download an app called "eris market fix" in hopes that it would allow some more freedom in the market. unfortunately, immediately after i downloaded it my phone lost not only its 3g but also all service. i then restarted and even hard reset it to no avail. i still could not make calls or connect to the 3g network or wifi. because i needed a phone, i reactivated my old phone in hopes that i could reactivate the eris again by calling *228 but whenever i try to make any phone call i get the error message "out of service area". i would really like to solve this problem without going to a verison store.
    any ideas are much appreciated!

    The Eris market fix, as I recall, should not have affected your radio at all.

    I'm stumped - this may just be a coincidence.

    My best idea? There is a custom ROM that you can run that will restore the phone to complete stock, including flashing the Eris radio. (There used to be a link to the latest radio, but I believe that it's no longer valid.)

    Download from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=792026

    Read that post carefully, especially the part about flashing the radio.

    What I would do is:

    - download that and copy to SD
    - restart the phone in Recovery
    - Nand backup the phone as it is now (this will not affect the radio)
    - flash that file
    - restart the phone and set up again. See if the radio works. You should be able to tell right away - the phone will try to activate
    - re-root the phone. Use Scenario 5 from Scary Alien's post here for the easiest method: http://androidforums.com/eris-all-t...2-custom-recovery-trackball-not-required.html
    - restart in Recovery and Nand restore what you backed up in step 3

    That should do it...
