Okay, so last night I finally got the Android SDK installed properly and the command prompt communicating with my phone. Using the newer ([WORKING] ROOT for all Eris' - xda-developers) root method I pushed Engtools3.zip to my phone from the command prompt rather than any other custom ROM because I didn't want to completely wipe my phone, just get SU. However, after successfully pushing it, rebooting in recovery and choosing to flash Engtools3.zip and installing I don't notice anything different, there's no SU icon anywhere in the notification bar and when I re-tested my connection through the command prompt by typing "adb shell" I still got a "$" instead of "#." Am I doing something wrong because according to the XDA thread with the root instructions I should be able to flash engtools without having to wipe to get super user permissions. Please help. Also... my reasoning behind installing Engtools3.zip rather than evileris or any other ROM right away is so that I could install Titanium and properly backup all my setting and such so as to not have to re-setup all that stuff after wiping and flashing. Would that even work or am I completely misunderstanding this process?
