Hi everyone, A little background info: Just bought a used HTC Eris off a guy who says he rooted the phone. I am fairly tech savvy and use linux on all of my computers, so i'm quite familiar with root, su, etc. So I downloaded a terminal emulator from market and typed 'su' and got a pound sign--from what I read, this indicates that the phone has been 'rooted'. However, i'm having a few problems, and I'm not sure where I should start. 1. Wireless tethering doesn't work--it says "unable to start tethering" 2. When i rotate to landscape mode in the terminal emulator, the app crashes. 3. GPS / google maps crash when typing to / from destination for directions. So to fix this, I thought it'd be nice to get the "freshest" rooted rom on the device and kind of start over. When I started reading the how-to's, however, I see a lot of warnings about "do this for this leak", "do this for another leak", etc.. and the problem is I'm not sure where I'm at and not even 100% sure the phone was rooted properly. (oh and I can't telnet to localhost, not sure if telnet server on the droid is enabled by default after rooting). Currently, the software info says: Firmware Version: 2.1 Kernel: 2.6.29-5898f66b htc-kernel@and18-2 #1 Build number: 2.19.605.1 CL123435 test-keys Sorry for the long thread, thanks for reading.
