    As well as the person above im have a very hard time with the Recovery Mode. Im unable to work anything in Command Prompt at all. I have a 2.1 on the phone, but its having many issues and seems to have to FC many applications. Im trying to work the recovery mode to install a new ROM that is supose to take care of issues. If someone could help me Im going crazy trying to figure this out. Ive spent hours on this already with no luck.

    Post Hope this helps

    You are putting the recovery file in your SDK folder right? The path to your folder probably won't be anything like the instructions, mine wasn't.

    Ex. my path: C:\Users\The ASS Chief\Documents\android-sdk_r04-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools

    Why? Because I wasn't paying attention to where my lappy decided to d/l the file. But this is where you need to add the recovery image.

    One thing all the instructions I've come across seem to leave out is YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR PHONE BEFORE YOU WIPE AND FLASH WITH THE NEW ROM!! I've come across that info in the threads but I can't remember reading it in ANY of the instructions. Muy importante! If you don't, you'll lose your phone book and email addys like I did, not fun.

    I to forgot to backup lol, and now I can't remember my Google account PW lol. Tried recovering it with no luck, now I have to wait 24 hrs and try login in again to get my security question. But I am enjoying 2.1 all the same. Very nice, smooth, and fast.

    GRDLOCK,

    In your all-in-one file, which rom version is included? Because I have the 3rd 2.1 leak in my phone. And how would I check if my Eris is rooted anyway?

    I have build number- 2.26.605.4

    Thanks!

    I have a quick question. i have eris 1.5, i want to get the 2.1 root. but if i don't find it as stable as i need, can i go back to stock 1.5 unrooted? and if the ota comes out, will the 2.1 root block it, or can i still update it?

    There are instructions over at fuzz4.net for reverting to 1.5 from a rooted 2.1, but since I haven't tried them, I can't say if they work or not.
    Here's the link: How To Downgrade your Rooted HTC Eris back to 1.5 - HTC Eris Root How To's - TheFuzz4.net
    If you try it, please let us know if it works or not...
