I can always flash back to SPRecovery through ROM Manager, let it DL and block, flash back to clockwork and back everything up. I'm pretty sure this will work.
Android keeps going, and going.....
Alright, I know you're sick of seeing this question, but I'm having a hard time finding what I need. This is due to everyone on here being an "expert" and contradicting each other all the time.
I want to keep my 2.1 OS and root my Eris.
From what I've gathered on here, any 2.2 rom is too much for the Eris (although some disagree...one of these contradictions between experts I was referring to). Because of this, I'd like to keep my OS.
I've seen threads on this site, and others, about flashing 2.1 with root access (this was posted back before 2.1 was officially released). But I've also gathered that you can't upgrade to an OS that you already have (although some disagree...another contradiction).
So I've found several guides on how to root it w/o modifying the current OS (including the stickies), but it seems that some of the "experts" on here really enjoy talking in "tech speak" that only they can understand. (I work in the IT field, and am competent with computers, just not as much with cell phones).
Can anyone briefly help without just referring me back to the forum, and without getting frustrated. And is the info I've gathered from here accurate?
- I just want to root my phone without changing from the 2.1 OS.
- From what I've gathered, you can just download a zip file on your computer, mount your phone, drag the file over to the phone's SD card, and run the new file in bootloader mode.
