not the same way every phone is different and probably since its not a high end phone it will probably never be rooted because the coders simply dont want to take the time to do it . But any phone can be rooted its just a matter of how and if someone has the time and perseverance to do it.

ok thanks alot i give it time..

lol, Lots of time....


And to be serious If you want a rooted android device then i suggest trading your phone in for a more popular one (hope its within 45 days of when you bought it)...Moto droid is very hacked... Also N1....etc...
I would hold off on the very new incoming phones for a month or two after they come out just to see if the rom makers and such are actually working on the type of phone (so many phones are coming out lately i bet supporting them all will be a challenge)...

Yeah it is! I read somewhere recently that the eris 2.1 isn't rooted yet..only the 1.5. No biggie anyway.

No don't get the eris because the ones from the store come loaded with the yet to be rooted software. If you really want an Eris then go buy a rooted one on ebay/craigslist but I'd suggest you get a Droid Incredible anyway....or if you don't mind not having Sense UI then the Droid X may have a strong hacking community...we should start asking devs if they plan to get one.

My wife got the eris about 5 months ago. Now that I have my moto droid, she is jealous of my root superpowers, and she's getting mad at how much time a spend looking at my frigging phone...I'm sure someone will root it soon, definitely someone will root the incredible pretty quick I imagine

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!!!
