    First, I suggest you read this entire post/thread http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/53963-guide-stock-1-5-latest-root-2-1-a.html. I'm just trying to point you in the right direction here.

    3. Open up a command prompt and go to your tools directory, and execute these commands: (MAKE SURE YOUR SDCARD IS NOT MOUNTED TO YOUR COMPUTER OR THESE COMMANDS WON'T WORK! MAKE SURE IT IS ON "CHARGE ONLY")
    • adb shell mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    • adb push recovery.img /sdcard
    • adb push flash_image /system/bin
    • adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    • adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

    4. Success! You now have a recovery partition installed on your phone. You can access it by running "adb shell reboot recovery" or by powering off your phone, holding "Volume Up + Power On"

    Good luck! Thanks again to GrdLock, hope your vacations rocks!
