I have the leak 2.1v3 and am interested in rooting, so that I can get rid of the apps that HTC and Verizon put on my phone.Can I root? Is it decently easy to root? What are the steps to root?I did update my phone from 1.5 to 2.1v1 to 2.1v2 to 2.1v3, so even though I'm not a real technical guy,I was able to install the leaks.

HTC Eris :: Root On Leak V3

Aug 23, 2010

Totally confused about if I can Root or Not, If it will cure my problems (unresponsiveness, Freeze up's and the annoying self starting useless apps - Amazon MP3, my uploads, Footprints etc.).And of course, How to do it?I Progressed through all 3 leaks on My ERIS and now (just last week) have the OTA update as well.I know this has been talked about B4 but I can't seem to find the correct thread. Also, I can't get a simple definitive answer, that doesn't preface something Like, Here's a Link go read this and the 20 other links it references as well.Not that I have a problem reading all the info, it's just that everyday the answers change or someone offers a "better mousetrap" or just confuses the issue with opinions instead of facts.If there is anybody who can simply tell me if on leak 3 and the recent update, I can Root, How to "simply" do it. That one click root thread seems simple enough! And can give me the name and link of a ROM that will get rid of the Crap that runs in the background but wont cripple or disable the phones main functions such as Phone, GPS Email and the modified FLASH we have had since day one that for me at least, Works. I would be forever indebted.One other thing I would like to change is the phone dialer, I would love Moto Droid one, That just puts a large keypad on the screen, with tabs for contacts, recent etc. Instead of the horrible 1/2 screen one we have. that when you try swiping through the contacts it always dials them!

HTC Eris :: Detailed Leak Root Tutorial

Jul 17, 2010

MAC/LINUX ROOT TUTORIAL

Many people have said that they are having difficulties understanding the root process, so I typed up a complete tutorial exactly the way I rooted my phone. All credit goes to wag3slav3 over at XDA, Root for ERIS LEAKERS! - xda-developers, I just expanded on the instructions

1.Download the Android SDK from here: Android SDK | Android Developers

2.Download hack-v4.zip from here: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

3.When the hack-v4.zip is done downloading put the files of the folder into the tools folder of the already extracted android sdk. The tools folder can be found at /where ever you put the sdk/android-sdk-86_mac/tools.

4.Download a custom ROM, I recommend KaosFroyo, but you can choose whatever one you want. Place the .zip file on the root of the SD Card (ie. Not in a folder). PS. If your mac automatically decompresses the .zip, you can find the original .zip file in the trash. For this plug your phone into the computer, pull down the notification bar at the top of the screen on your phone and tap the USB connection notification, then tap Mount as Disk Drive. Copy the .zip onto the phone.
LIST OF ROMS: Known Droid Eris Roms, Patches and Hacks - UPDATED 05-11-2010 - xda-developers

5.To change directories to sdk/tools folder:
1.Open a new terminal window and type cd [space]
2.Find the android sdk in a finder window
3.Drag the folder that says tools to the terminal window and press [ENTER]
4.There now should be the word "tools" in front of the computer name/your name in terminal.

6. On your phone go in to Applications->Development->USB Debugging and make sure it is checked. Plug your phone into your computer, select "charge only" not Disk Drive mode

7. To test if your ADB is working run " ./adb devices " . If you get an alphanumeric code that starts with HTXXXXXXXXXX and says device then you are all set.

8. Once your phone is plugged in run " sh runinlinuxfromtools.sh "
It takes a while to load, but you should be in Amon's recovery after its done. If you don't see Amon's recovery than try step 9.

9. If you get "adb: command not found, try " sh runinlinuxadb.sh "

10. Your phone will now boot into recovery. From there select "Backup/Restore" > and NAND Backup. Let it load, it takes a minute or two, then return back to main menu. Then select "Wipe" > choose Wide data/factory reset. Return to menu and select "Flash zip from sdcard" > find your .zip file that you downloaded (the ROM). It should have the name of the ROM somewhere in the zip name. Let it do its thing, then select reboot option.

11. Congrats, you have successfully rooted your phone! If your ROM does not already include "SuperUser.apk", download and install the app as soon as possible.

12. [OPTIONAL] If you want to change the boot loader to the engineering bootloader (ie. S-OFF) then follow these instructions How To Install Engineering bootloader FOR LEAK ROOTERS - xda-developers
But I have found a change that will make this much more hassle-free. On the last step when you see you have successfully changed the HBOOT, do a battery pull, and start the phone back up again. You do not have to do those commands for the final step. Then complete the root instructions above and you will have a changed boot-loader and root.

8. To test if your ADB is working type "adb devices " and hit enter . If you get an alphanumeric code that starts with HTXXXXXXXXXX and says device then you are all set.

9. With your phone still plugged in type "runindos.bat" (at the end of the string in the command window on your PC) and hit Enter
Your phone will reboot, sit a while, and then reboot again into Amon's recovery.

10. In Recovery, select "Backup/Restore" > and NAND Backup. Let it load, it takes a minute or two, then return back to main menu.

11. Select "Wipe" > choose Wipe data/factory reset. Return to menu and select "Flash zip from sdcard" > find your .zip file that you downloaded (the ROM). It should have the name of the ROM somewhere in the zip name. Let it do its thing, then select reboot option.

12. Congrats, you have successfully rooted your phone!

FLASHING CUSTOM ROM's (Once Root is gained)
In order to flash a new ROM after obtaining root you simply:
1. Find and download the ROM that you want to use.

2. Mount your PC and copy the .zip file over to your SD card like you did for root.

3. Turn off your phone and power it back up while holding down the up volume key.

4. After booting into Recovery, go to Wipe and wipe factory data along with Dalvik Cache.

5. Back out of the Wipe menu and go to Install from SD. Your ROM will be there. Hit install and it will put the new ROM that you want, on your phone.

6. Reboot and you will see a boot animation screen for several minutes before it loads your new ROM.

7. Repeat this procedure with a Nand Backup each time you get a new ROM set up.

HTC Droid Eris :: Can I Go 2.1 OTA To V3 Leak?

Jun 2, 2010

I am running v3 and my wife has the OTA. The OTA is very buggy when compared to my v3. Can I flash her phone to v3? The main bug/problem with her OTA is that the phone constantly puts itself into silent mode. I did not believe it (I thought she was hitting the rocker) until i witnessed it happening. BTW a reset does not fix the issue.

HTC Droid Eris :: How To Get Back To 1.5 From The Leak

Apr 30, 2010

I went to Verizon on my lunch break, and got assisted by the actual store supervisor, which was pretty cool. He was a blackberry guy, and didn't seem to know much about Android. Really nice though. He basically had me do basic diagnostics, but when i explained that it must be hardware in my phone not working since my facebook contacts where not syncing correctly. I also complained about dialer lag, and that i shouldn't have to reset my phone every month to keep it fast.

Now, it's clear that I was running the 2.1 leak. When he compared my settings to the ones on the store's Eris, he goes, "Are you running any other hack or anything on the phone?" I pleaded innocent and was like, "No...I just got the OTA from you guys. I don't know why they're different." He didn't once check the phones "About" section, and seemed to care more about fixing the problem. He had a "tech" look at it, but they couldn't figure anything out.

After 45 minutes or so, he says that if I can show him Facebook syncing on the stores Eris with -my- account, he'd swap the phone as defective for a referb. I did, and he did it, no questions asked. Now, back on 1.5...I also now have a pretty brand new phone. (No scratches or anything). I will say...in the time i had the phone with me at work till getting home now....1.5 is horrible. Oh. My. God. Thank GOD I flashed the leak when I did...the phone is horrible. So, project for tonight is Root. Wish me luck.

I have purchased the tapatalk pro version. I updated to 2.1 and I cannot get it in the market and I could not back it up because it is marked as private. Am I out of luck until 2.1 is released officially so it will show up in the market or is there any way to just get the apk? I did pay for it so Im not trying to get a free file, but if anyone has a way to get it to me I can provide my recept that was emailed to me to show im honest.There were a few other programs, none paid, but ones I liked that dont work with 2.1's market. gUnit and tv.com for instance. All in all I think since those are the only bugs have personally seen in this software all is good

HTC Droid Eris :: 2.1 Leak Stock Keyboard

Mar 18, 2010

I've noticed a couple of bugs in the stock keyboard for the 2.1 leak: In portrait mode, if you overshoot the space bar, and press underneath it, it causes the keyboard to close. And in landscape mode, if you press the grey area to the right of the "L" key, it does the same. Now that I verbalize it, it seems more like the sensitivity areas for the home/menu/return/search keys may be a little larger than they were in 1.5, maybe even extending nearly into the keyboard. I notice myself getting kicked out of typing a lot more due to this than I did with 1.5. I've tried recalibrating but that doesn't seem to help.

HTC Droid Eris :: Checksum Proof RUU OTA - 2.1 Leak V3

Jul 4, 2010

I have currently been testing the method of rooting leaked 2.1 phones. There was a little discussion running in that thread (and other threads, I've found) that poses the question whether or not the RUU is the same as 2.1 Leak v3. The RUU I'm using is referenced here: [ROM] Official HTC Desire RUU ROMS and OTA Update URLs - xda-developers - which can be found here:
http://shipped-roms.com/shipped/Desire/RUU_Desire_C_Verizon_WWE_2.36.605.1_release_signed _with_driver.exe

Leak 2.1 v3 I'm using is referenced here: HTC DROID Eris OS 2.1v3 download -- which can be found here: PB00IMG.zip. So, the process that I've been using to root these phones involves flashing the RUU OTA onto the phone. With some help from user bftb0, I have taken the time to do the analysis. How did I get system.img and boot.img off of the RUU OTA, you might ask? Well, after I flashed the RUU OTA onto the phone, I went through the Incredible/Slide root method to root the phone I'm working with (without changing any phone settings within Sense).

After getting adb to recognize the device in recovery, I took the steps necessary to flash Amon_RA's recovery. I then took a Nandroid backup of my phone and extracted the system.img and boot.img files off of the SD card where the Nandroid backup was stored. Then, I used unyaffs to unpack system.img into 2 separate directories, and used split_bootimg.pl to unpack boot.img. So, for split_bootimg.pl I did this, starting at the directory where each respective boot.img file is:

Do we know if someone is working on rooting the leak versions? I know a lot of questions. My phone works really well on ver2 and I am afraid to go to ver3 and get the crap everyone else is dealing with, but root would be nice. Now that I have had the time to learn about it and how it works.
