    Are you planning on owning up to the visitors to your site that for 6 or 7 weeks, you had a link to a "leak" ROM... in your instructions on "How to Root"?

    Imagine the number of folks who came looking for advice, and got screwed by nothing more than sloppiness on your part.

    I mean really, you had links to two files ... of different sizes.

    Checksums, anybody?

    The man right here.
    Always telling it like it is. giving the best advice known to an Eris owner.
    Let me get this straight.......
    These guys gave out a "leak" file claiming it was "root"
    Then when people came for advice about this they claimed, it was negligence on the users part.
    and then once confirmed what was going on, they denied it?
    weak sauce.
    thanks for acknowledging this.
