    The devs over at xda-developers.com are still working on it, trying out things like the method used to root the Incredible. No new news yet. You'll hear about it everywhere once it happens for real.

    FYI, the HTC Aria just got rooted as well, using the same method as MT3G Slide (and Incredible, I believe).

    My guess: it will probably happen sometime after froyo leak for eris is released, in the coming 2 months or so...
    That is of course based on memories of waiting 3 long months for 1.5 root long after leaked 2.1 had been installed by many impatient people (such as myself and probably anyone else reading this thread).
    But yeah, doesnt seem like anyone is working on it. Most of the forums regarding leak to root are all about getting replacement phones and upgrading to the droid...
    (pissed off that the Aria already got root btw)

    well you guys have to remember that the devs never rooted the eris in the first place.
    the rooted rom was leaked by HTC
    in my opinion i think that HTC locked down the Eris too hard.
    i dont think its going to be possible to root

    Why do you suppose that HTC choose the Eris of all phones to basically make un-rootable?

    because they want control over the end-product.
    we by HTC phones, they want them to work as HTC phones.

    I see, but I mean the Evo was rooted pretty much before it came out. The incredible is rooted, I have even heard the HTC Aria was just recently rooted 2 days after it was released. My question is what is it about the Eris that HTC decides that they are going to make it pretty much unrootable?

    Agreed. I don't think it will ever get officially rooted. If we're lucky, another "mysterious" rooted ROM will be handed to us.
