    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.

    Unable to locate driver for device

    HELP!!! I just tried again, following the instructions on how to update the drivers for the DI. However, I keep getting the same -- Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device.

    I have downloaded to a Download folder under My Documents on Win2k box.

    I pick out the android_winusb.inf and give OK, but no find driver.

    What am I doing wrong?? Any help would be appreciated....:)

    How long has she had the phone? Did she buy it from Verizon or a third party? Rather curious that she never got Froyo.

    You're going to need to be on 2.2. You can manually upgrade but first I'd call Verizon and see if they can push the update to you. There's no reason she shouldn't have gotten the update if her phone is working properly.

    Verizon did not know why phone could not get an update and they are sending me a "like new" certified. So i am waiting on that to come in was kinda upset they did not give me a new one at the store. I do have a question is AMOLED or SLCD better than the other? Well when the phone gets here im going to try and root it. Hope it is as easy as rooting the Droid X (z4root ftw!)

    This thread is not up-to-date, issue with SLCD is no longer a concern. When you are ready to root, be sure to follow instructions in this tutorial, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ow-root-stock-2-2-using-unrevoked-3-32-a.html.
