I have been looking around on this site for about a month or so. I finally registered today and made up my mind to root my phone. Before I undertake the task of rooting, thank you for all the posts and sticky's about rooting and the 2.2 upgrade, I have used the search option for "nandroid backup" and found nothing. I want to be able to put my phone back to 2.1 factory if I encounter a problem or this phone takes a dump. I am still under warranty and this is my second Eris. More on the life of my first Eris some other time. WHAT A PIECE OF crap! Anyways, can someone please send me the link or tell me how to make a "backup" of the factory 2.1. One more question, I received an iPad from my girl for Christmas and mainly want to teather my iPad to my Eris. Do I have to flash the Froyo rom or can I teather just being rooted? Thank you and Cheers!
