    So i just rooted my eris with the one click app. Got root, then i flashed the kaos rom. Well i saw there was a gingerbread rom so i downloaded that to my sd card and went into recovery and i didnt see the gingerbread rom that i downloaded. Here is the ROM that i downloaded.... [ROM][3/5/2011] GSB v1.9 | GingerBread 2.3.3 [CM7.0.0 RC1 NIGHTLY] - xda-developers .

    I used to have a rooted droid OG. When i flashed new roms i had to go to sprecovery and do a update.zip. Do i need to save the rom as an update.zip and do it the same way or what? I really wanna get this gingerbread rom on here now but i need somebodys help. thanks

    Did you download it on your phone, or on your computer and transfer it to your phone?

    Check your "download" folder on your sd card. The ROM needs to be on the root of your card, not in a folder.

    you can flash a new kernel to your device, be extremely careful though!!!! Flashing a kernel is a very common way to turn your eris into a paperweight. always do a nand backup before flashing anything !!!!!!!!!!!

    Your post is lacking in detail a little so let me ask a few questions first.
    Is your phone bricked?
    Are you able to get to Recovery?
    What kernel are you trying to flash?

    Now for an answer, if you flash a kernel that messes up your phone (bootloops, won't boot to the main screen), if you are using Amon-RA recovery just boot in recovery with vol down+end, Select "nand backup/restore", select "nand restore", choose your nandbackup that you want to restore and wait for it to finish.

    Most posts about kernels have instructions on how to flash them correctly. As long as you follow those instructions you should be fine. Just make sure you read through the entire thread, watching to see if people report problems with it. As for setcpu, it sounds like you're just trying to overclock too high, what are you trying to set the device at? To do a nand backup, just reboot into recovery with vol down+end. I only know how to do this with Amon-RA recovery so if you have clockworkmod, this process may be different. After you reboot into recovery, select "Nand Backup/Restore", then select "Nand Backup" and wait for the process to finish!

    Don't unzip the rom, it will mess up the signature. Just copy the rom onto the root of the sdcard then reboot into recovery and flash it. Don't forget to flash gapps after that and make a nand backup in recovery before you do any of this.

    Rooted Eris and can't use recovery.

    I just rooted my HTC eris with the Universal Androot [free one click app to root almost any android device]. The recovery image it gave me is RA-eris v1.6.2. When I shut my phone off and boot it into recovery, the trackball doesn't work, the only option I can use is the first, which is the reboot option. However, the track ball works flawlessly when I'm using it normally on my phone. I can't get the adb to work on my computer and everything about it is frustrating me so I can't use that to flash the gingerbread rom, that I have downloaded on the root of my sd card, as said can be done in another forum when I searched "How to flash a rom in amon ra with broken trackball". So my only other viable option unless someone can walk a somewhat noob to use adb starting from downloading and installing the latest version of the Android SDK, or seeing if I can download ROM Manager and use that. My only concern is ROM Manager uses clockwork recovery and idk if that will mess up my phone or brick it since I already was forced into having Amon Ra recovery, or if when I use ROM Manager if it will just switch the recovery images [which I highly doubt]. ANY AND ALL suggestions from people, that have experience with this problem or have heard/read how to solve it, would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance guys :]

    Okay to add on to my problem, I listened to some other people on another android forum, they said I could just use ROM Manager and flash the ClockworkMod Recovery and it should work for me, I did and then I flashed the cyanogenmod Gingerbread 2.3 ROM. When my phone rebooted, it got stuck on a bootloop on the second boot screen. So I turned it off and rebooted into recovery. Guess what? Yeah My phone reverted back to Amon Ra recovery so I'm guessing ROM Managers "superb" flashing skills didn't stick the recovery image, but managed to get the ROM to stick. So when I boot up normally, [I've booted up 10+ times so far] I get stuck in a boot loop, and when I boot into recovery, the only option I can get to due to a broken trackball is "reboot".

    I'm guessing my only viable option is to push the stock 1.5 ROM onto my Eris using ADB and then Pushing the 2.1 RUU from adb as well. Can anyone link me to a complete dummies/noobs guide to downloading the Android SDK and then Using ADB? Because I used one guide, downloaded the most recent version of SDK and JDK, then installed all the update things in the SDK when you open the setep.exe and yet when I open the ADB in platform tools, a small black window pops up and a lot of text flashes down it, then it closes. Any suggestions?

    Did you try using the Volume up and volume down keys when in recovery? Trackball should work but if it doesn't then try the volume keys.
