    Hi folks,

    I'm going to root my wifes phone today. Was wondering if I can run unrevoked on her phone then just transfer one of my nandroid backups to get her up and running quickly. Been using a virtuous Rom. Thanks all

    That can be done on the HTC Eris, the only 'catch' is that the backup has to be under the directory where the name is her phone's serial number. So the first thing to do would be to make a backup of her phone (which is a good idea anyway, before trying this). That will create the necessary directory, after that you just need to copy the nandroid from your phone to her phone, into the correct directory.

    Of course this all assumes that you and your wife have the same model of phone. If you don't, I wouldn't recommend trying it.
