    I understand that easy root does most of the leg-work to give you root access, but I'm a little confused as to what comes next. Since I've been reading the other posts, do we skip ahead to the titanium backup to back up our stuff, then install the rom manager? If so when do we apply the 2.2 rom

    exactly what I want to know.

    I also would like to know how to backup without lines of code since I don't know this OS and such. if anybody has a link for an easy way to do this, that'd be awesome.

    please read my signature about rooting. Once you understand what is going on we can get you rooted. Rsdlite is just as easy and its safe.

    I understand the terms and all, but here's a quick question..

    if I mount the SD card to my PC and copy everything into a folder(pre root), then, I root, say I screw something up, can't I mount it back, delete everything off of the SD card, then put it all back on from the folder (pre root?)
    thanks for answer

    rooting itself does not change anything. Infact when I rooted people devices with rsdlite and it booted up everything was the exact same way. Rooting itself do not do anything but give you permissions (as stated in that link in my signature....please read it it will reaaaaaaaly help you understand the process). After you root make a nandroid backup. Then if you feel the need to make a copy of the nandroid folder on your computer.

    ok but see this is exactly where I am stuck.

    I don't understand how to make a nandroid back up. I read your signature, I promise I did. I wouldn't waste your time and I know you're trying to help me. I understand what rooting is, what it does, and honestly I only want to do it because I want to (figure out) how to rename some useless stock apps to .pak to clear up some memory.

    I will get into roms eventually, but not if I can't figure out how to back up using nandroid. :(

    I am on eris by the way... I'm sure you saw that already though

    according to that tutorial, I need to purchase SP backup from the market, correct?

    that was great and seems very easy.

    now, one last thing... unless the answer is something horrible.

    I've read threads about a Market app called "1 click root"... will this work for my droid eris?

    sorry, I said it above and it's in my signature.......

    I'm not worried about overlocking yet.. I just want to get the initial root done and backup, then I want to free up some memory. after that, overlocking may be an option

    1) type of devices (droid, droid x, droid inc)
    DROID

    2) are you rooted or stock , and if you are rooted list rom, kernel, and theme if applicable
    ROOTED- Using EasyRoot, tried downloading BBv.4 but no luck running it yet

    3) how much battery life and when was the last time you charged it.
    Plugged in and charging now, 80%

    4) are yo running sprecovery or clockwork/rom manager
    Rom Manager

    5) If you followed a guide what step did you get hung up on.
    Used EasyRoot, I have root access but want to run BB. I downloaded it, wiped my phone went through the reboot and I'm back at stock froyo. I had to re-download all my apps and re-activate my phone.

    Here is what it says in my "settings>about phone" page

    android version
    2.2

    basebandversion
    c_01.43.01p

    kernel version

    In ROM Manager, does choosing the option "Backup Current ROM" create a Nandroid backup?

    ok, thanks for the help.

    I managed to root my droid eris with a tutorial I found on another website, and by watching some of your vids. I will post the tutorial in a new thread in a few minutes.
