OK, I'm sure there are plenty of threads on this topic BUT what I'm asking for is that someone to either chat with me live thru whatever messenger someone might have on their computer or thru e-mail step by step on how to root my Eris. This is the only phone I have and I can't default back to an old phone if I brick this one. I love my phone and it has been a long time coming on making the jump to android. I got my wife a CPO incredible from Verizon and was instantly jealous so even with months of searching on C's list before I got her phone I finally found my Eris. Paid 100 bucks for it. It's perfect, but anyways back to my question. Would someone please help me root my Eris step by step as I have never attempted such a thing before. A friend of mine said there is a 40% chance that if I do it, that I'll brick it. Knowing my luck that will happen. This is why I'm asking for help. I have a lot of questions before this happens so be prepared. Thanks in advance to anyone and everyone that is willing to help. I'm brand new here and just want all the garbage apps off my phone.
