    I gave my hubby my eris in oct when I got my fascinate, and it runs painfully slow, to the point of almost not being worth using.

    Bearing in mind that I am a noob and don't know about flashing and custom roms etc, any suggestions?

    Or should I just give him the fascinate in a couple weeks when I get the tb?

    i was a noob when i first got my eris about 5 months ago (now i have tb, lol), but if you do your research and follow the instructions in the link below, its easy to root, flash gingerbread (latest update-i had version 2.0 before i got the tb), and overclock it (using setcpu)....when i did all of that to my eris, it was a completely different phone....it did everything i needed it to do, it was quick, and i customized it to my liking....i would just try those things first....

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ht...e-root-flash-android-2-2-froyo-your-eris.html

    use the root section out of this link....

    [ROM][3/27/2011] GSB v2.3 | GingerBread 2.3.3 [CM7.0.0 RC2 NIGHTLY] - xda-developers

    use this link to flash gingerbread, gapps, and cache2cache

    you flash gingerbread the same way they flashed froyo in the first link....the 2nd link doesn't go into as much detail about flashing the rom like the first one does....so just substitute gingerbread in for froyo and you should be fine....also i watched some people do it on youtube as well to make sure i felt comfortable with doing it.....

    I honestly do not know, I have always did it the cpu way....so I do not feel comfortable giving you a direct yes our no answer, also remember to make a nan droid backup, just in case something goes wrong....
