    I think what they are saying is there are root instructions at the top of the page. And they are detailed.

    That's exactly what ErisUser1 is saying.. Your actually the only person (kevinlovesrice) to ever say he is "no help at all" In reality he is probably the most helpful one on this site regarding help on rooting. If you go for it and get stuck, THEN make a new thread, and in your case, just continue in this one, and you will get the help needed. OR if you read the instructions on root, you'd see there is info on the IRC chat room they are very helpful there, they have helped me on a number of things when I got stuck rooting, and getting things to work on certain ROMs. So give it a try man, the instructions are pretty good, everyone is different, (Mac, Windows/XP/7?Vista)ect. but if you get stuck you have a couple options for feedback as the IRC chat room you don't have to wait for someone to see you post, there is usually always someone around to guide you.

    Hello, kevinlovesrice. There is a guide for rooting the Eris at:

    http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/53963-guide-stock-1-5-latest-root-2-1-a.html

    Have a read of the very first post, that is the main guide, whether you have 1.5 or 2.1 the instructions are the same.

    Do it step-by-step, slowly and carefully, after first reading through all of the steps.

    When they say Root Folder they mean to put it on the SD card and not in any folders that are on the SD card.
