    What does it mean to run these commands as root?

    adb push flash_image /data/local/flash_image
    adb push misc.img /data/local/misc.img
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/flash_image
    adb shell /data/local/flash_image misc misc.img

    After browsing, it would seem that thread is for those that have not rooted yet.

    I've never tried this. I suggested this post based upon the idea that EU1 is super-knowledgeable, the post is very recent, and there was a successful attempt.

    I don't know what their process is for such things. Are you getting a warranty replacement?

    I would think it was unlikely they would notice. They probably just flash the 2.1 OTA and send it back out as a refurbished. ;)

    Credit goes to EU1 of course. I'm very pleased to see that you were successful. Nice work. Now the question becomes.....are you going to root your new Eris?!

    no because if there are problems with the new eris they are going to replace it with a moto droid. So im giong to have to find some "problems" with it lol.

    I don't know if you chose the ROM you were using with your old phone. But, you just may like your Eris with a ROM such as WhiteWidow, or XTR. Either way, good luck with your new phone/phones.

    I'm gonna be using this method ASAP. FYI, they tell you ten days, but they don't actually charging you for not sending back a phone for about 2-3 months. When they do, you get it and send it back. I have forgotten this twice. So now to unroot and send back before they cut my phone off.

    Edit: Confirmed that you get a 90 day grace period. Not a good idea to push it!

    Be sure to report back; it's nice to have a reference of what works or doesn't. Thanks buddy.

    Well that method worked for me like a charm. It was very quick and simple espically with the step by steps with pictures.

    I was also running ivans official which i liked but idk if I want to root my new eris. I can tell its much slower than my old overclocked one though.
