Got my Droid Eris Jan, 2010. I've gotten 2 refurbs since then. My trackball won't work when I try to root using amon's recovery (tried both Root for Dummies and 1-Click App). I can't get a new phone until 9/2011. I really like my Eris, don't get me wrong. It's just a little laggy and my internal memory bites. I'm not smart enough to root via code and would rather not brick my phone because I'm an idiot. Thanks to all who answered my questions and tried to help. If anyone hears of an easy root method that does not involve using the trackball in the recovery menu, please let me know.
