    Long story short, my eris got wet. I dried it in rice and it started up fine after about a day but the trackball was acting like it was constantly pressed down. So seeing as the warranty was already voided because it got wet I decided to open up my phone to make sure there wasn't any rice bits inside. After closing up my phone it now will only boot up to the hboot screen. Holding down the volume down button causes it to check the sd card for files that cant be found. The file list is to quick to really read but they all start with PB00 and end in .zip. A guy at verizon recommended that I try to root my phone but all the directions I've found require you to put your phone in usb debug mode which is kind of a problem for me. Any help would be appreciated.

    The verizon guy is right, sounds like something got borked. Are you able to install PB00IMG? Once you do that you should be able to go into debug mode.

    Can't install the flash image. Phone goes through all the steps but always boots back to the hboot screen. Going to bite it and buy one off of ebay.
