    Okay, I did some searches and haven't found anything solid to rooting a Droid Eris after getting the OTA 2.1 update.

    1.Is it possible and if so how do i root it?
    2. How do i get a custom rom on it after?
    3. Can all you root users tell me what ROMs you're running and what you think of them?


    videos / links will help too.
    thanks,

    you have to go to the droid eris forum and look up how to go from 2.1 eris to 1.5 and then get a 2.1 rooted rom and install it go to http://theunlockr.com/ and look it up good luck.

    I've had my Eris for about a week now. It was shipped with cupcake(1.5) software. I went into the settings and checked for updates and eclair(2.1) was available for download. So I proceeded with the download and updated to eclair. I'm coming from a rooted T-mobile G1, so I'm familiar with rooting and flashing ROMs. I went on XDA and found out some info on rooting the Eris. Then I went to theunlockr(dot)com and followed the steps on rooting my phone. This was AFTER I had installed the OTA update. I now have a rooted Eris running the Evil Eris v3.0 ROM!!! :icon_ banana:

    I'm NOT telling you to do what I did. I'm just letting you know what I did and how it turned out. Rooting and flashing ROMs always have risks, so if you're not willing to take the risk, DON'T do it!!
