    2.1 out of the box and root question

    I got my eris 2 weeks ago so 2.1 was already on it. I know that there are many topics about rooting, but all I could find dealt w/ rooting up to 2.1. So I thought a new thread might be in order.

    Can I have simple directions on how to root my eris? The only reason I want it done is so I can turn it into a hotspot for my itouch, so directions on that would be great too.

    I'd say first, reboot phone while holding end and volume down and see what version of hboot you have. If its 1.49 your screwed for rooting.

    Ya turn it off and when you turn it back on hold the end button and volume down button.

    ok, now I have a screen that shows an Eris and a big red triangle w/ a ! on it. I can't get it to go away.

    But it will probably be rooted soon right?

    Thanks for helping!

    So what if it is 2.1...I'm trying to root my wife 's phone (just kidding) How do I root an eris from 2.1? It is really hard to find information on it. Personally I have a rooted moto droid with bb 0.1 and nextheme with p3's lv 1.2 gHz kernel and I LOVE it!
