    Hi everyone. New to the forum.
    I have a non rooted HTC Eris i got back in december from Verizon. I'm running android 2.1 that I installed via the system update a few weeks ago. I liked my droid when it was on 1.5 but I love it with 2.1. I originally wanted an iPhone but just couldn't stomach AT&T or having to constantly bow at the iTunes alter and kiss Steve Jobs ring whenever I wanted something for the phone.

    I am very interested in rooting my phone but a little scared to do so before being able to do an early upgrade to get a new phone in december in case I brick it. Would like to get other opinions on that.

    How hard to do and just how risky is it?
