    Question MetroFlash & Rooting?

    I have searched high and low but haven't been able to find a clear answer. I was really hoping someone here may be able to tell me.

    Does my HTC Eris need to be rooted before flashing to MetroPCS?

    If my Eris is flashed to Metro before trying to root, will the root break the flash?

    And if the root does break the flash, is there anyway to "restore" the flash without going into the Metro store?

    Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give

    you dont have to root, and you can root afterwards on a moto droid with a cricket flash, id assume its the same on the eris, but not 100 percent sure. i know for a fact you can flash the smoked glass rom and root the motorola droid after the cricket flash and it wont wipe the flash and you can have the droid rooted before the flash as well.

    Thanks for the reply..

    I do have to root if I want MMS and the internet on my phone. I really miss sending pictures messages

    I have a Moto Droid as well. I was actually thinking of flashing it to Cricket. I might just do that and toss the Eris.
