    I'm sorry if this has been answered but I couldn't find it specifically. I recently rooted my Eris to 2.1 (using GrdLock's guide) and have trouble accessing superuser permission. The program labeled this opens to a blank screen and force closes, and when I tried to download a widget to overclock my processor, it could not work because it was unable to access the superuser permission. I thought that this came standard with rooting, so is there something I did wrong?

    Also, occasionally I have been unable to place or recieve a call. The call timer runs as if I'm on the line, but I can't hear anything at all. I usually have to turn off/on my phone to fix it, but was wondering if this was another problem associating with the rooting or superuser permission.

    Thanks

    you need to turn on usb debugging go to settings-applications-development make sure that usb debugging is checked on. Once a rooted program is installed super user will then ask permission to change the setting on the phone. FYI there are no current ROMS for the eris that are overclockable.

    almost fully correct. make sure usb debug is turned on, also that its in charge mode, not mount. then open up a cmd window in the /tools/ dir of your sdk and type adb shell and then su...you will see a popup on your phone asking to allow, hit allow always allow. you may have to restart your phone if this doesnt work the first time. this happ'd to me when i was using grdlocks vanilla for the first time.

    hope this helps

    You need to download the usb drivers from the Eris Master app page. If you type device manager into windows search and look at your devices, is ADB there with an exclamation point next to it?
