    I just got an eris offa craigslist, and it's running 1.5, but I can't gain initial root. since I wish to go up to 2.1 rooted, should go up to one of the 2.1 rooted roms?

    Or do you mean that you have the root rom but its not flahing it?
    If ^^ this is the case format the sd card and try again.

    xactly. I downloaded the root rom, copied it onto my sd card, restarted it pressing the volume down and red call key, HBOOT comes up, some files unzip, and then, nothing. just seems to hang with no choices to proceed nor "push to activate" option.

    What file did you copy to your sd card? A rom file or the PB00IMG.zip file? When I first rooted, the pb00img.zip file that is linked to sendspace didnt work for me and I had to download it from grdlocks website. You should have some options once you load the bootloader program, like recovery and hboot or something similar if its not recognizing the install file, does it have anything like that?
