    so i searched but with no luck im stuck in my rooting.


    i recently got the eris from my sister who upgraded. i moved from the bb bold.

    any ways, i did a hard reset to get rid of her crap and decided it was a good time to root it. so i did using the gingerbread v8.

    so far so good other than the fact that i cannot connect to the google servers and the app store is missing. this is keeping me from downloading my contacts from google.

    i fell like i missed some steps in the process and hopefully havent screwed the phone up.


    im at a dead end and would love some help.

    It would not hurt to try another ROM if the one you are using isnt working. After the FroYo incident on my wifes phone, she wont let me even discuss flashing GB on it... YET!
