VERY easy to follow step-by-step rooting tutorial available here: Rooting stock 2.2 using unrEVOked 3.22
Well, my Eris trackball started freaking out again and it turns out they only honor manu warranty from date of purchase, not date of replacement arrival... Oh well. I gotta say this method was so ridiculously easy I didn't quite believe it. "Triumph." LOL
I had my phone rooted within 5 minutes of popping my fully charged Eris battery into it. Titanium, take me home!!!!
I'll pour out a 40oz. for the Eris. She was a fine lady, but, well... you know.
HELP!!! I just tried again, following the instructions on how to update the drivers for the DI. However, I keep getting the same -- Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device.
I have downloaded to a Download folder under My Documents on Win2k box.
I pick out the android_winusb.inf and give OK, but no find driver.
What am I doing wrong?? Any help would be appreciated....
You're going to need to be on 2.2. You can manually upgrade but first I'd call Verizon and see if they can push the update to you. There's no reason she shouldn't have gotten the update if her phone is working properly.
