Well, my Eris trackball started freaking out again and it turns out they only honor manu warranty from date of purchase, not date of replacement arrival... Oh well. I gotta say this method was so ridiculously easy I didn't quite believe it. "Triumph." LOL I had my phone rooted within 5 minutes of popping my fully charged Eris battery into it. Titanium, take me home!!!! I'll pour out a 40oz. for the Eris. She was a fine lady, but, well... you know.
