    So I took the leap to 2.1 yesterday. I was going for root bc of the live wallpapers. I don't know exactly what I download. I installed PB00IMG.zip. what is that. Root or leaked

    It could be either rooted OR leaked. I hope, for your sake, that it's rooted. That is just the name, that you name an image, so that HBOOT can flash it.

    Follow the rest of the directions in the GUIDE: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/53963-guide-stock-1-5-latest-root-2-1-a.html

    If they don't work, you're probably leaked. I'm assuming you got the PB00IMG.ZIP from this thread (or hoping), so I'm shooting in the dark in that I'm assuming it's Root and not Leak.

    You should never go installing something that you don't know what it is.

    This is what MD5 hashes are for. Use a tool such as this: MD5sums for Windows

    Then check the md5 hash against someone else who posted the file.

    That's the hash of the root 2.1 image.

    Well I got the download after I watched a youtube video on how to install the 2.1 onto the Eris, there was a couple of links of to the side of the video. I was on thefuzz4.net, but I havent went to the Android SDK site, or done a custom recovery, or any of that. The phone is working great though. Nav works, calls work, text, ect, so IDK.

    Go to a command prompt and type "md5sums <filename>"
