    Let it be known that sometimes Cricket says they have put you on the $55 Android plan, but they put you on the All in 55 Plan (5m5). This is not where you want to be. You're paying 10 more bucks a month for absolutely nothing over the 45 dollar plan.

    14. Click "write to phone". Ignore any errors that occur.

    --> If you are on the $55 Android plan the Internet should work (reboot will probably be required). If you are on the $45 plan, please continue below.

    For Method 1 (most preferred)


    For method 2 (preferred)


    ADB installed on your computer.... & U2nl from

    (thanks to whiterabbit). Save and U2nl in C:\android\tools\. (if you are going to be on the $55 Android plan you don't need to download this)

    Download Autostart (Root) from Market (if you are going to be on the $55 Android plan you don't need to download this). We will also attach this for your convenience.

    Before starting the next step make sure you have the u2nl file in your this folder c:\android\tools and also that you have you file in this folder c:\android\tools
    Now go to command prompt and type the following commands,

    cd c:\android\tools <enter>
    adb shell <enter>
    mkdir /data/opt/ <enter>
    exit <enter>
    adb remount <enter>
    adb push c:\android\tools\u2nl /system/bin/u2nl <enter>
    adb push c:\android\tools\ /data/opt/ <enter>
    adb shell <enter>
    chmod 0755 /system/bin/u2nl <enter>
    chmod 0755 /data/opt/ <enter>
    adb reboot <enter>

    For method 3 (least preferred)

    Required: Anycut.apk-- get it in the android market place VIA Wifi. Also attached here for your convenience.

    15. Install the anycut.apk mentioned above on your HTC Eris.
    16. Open Anycut and click New Short Cut.
    17. Click Activity and scroll down to Proxy Settings. Select it and Click Ok on the window that comes up.
    18. Go to The home screen on your Eris and find the Proxy Settings on your Eris.
    19. For Hostname enter: and for port enter 8080.

    For method 4 (web and mms, requires root)

    Requires: Cricket MMS v10 zip which is attached below. Root access with a recovery image (ClockworkMod or Amon_RA).

    Flash the MMS v10 zip just like you would a ROM. As always, it is encouraged to do a nandroid backup.

    If MMS doesn't work, please continue to follow the tutorial for MMS.

    Step 3: MMS!
    What you need:
    a. Android SDK---
    b. Modified Telephony.db --
    c. Have Eris phone flashed for talk text and web (see above if you have not done this).

    Root the phone and get a recovery image on it if you haven't already.

    To recap from earlier:

    1. Unzip android sdk to a place where you can find it (the shorter the directory name the better as you will soon see. Mine is saved in C:\android
    Also unzip the telephony.db into a folder where you can find it. Mine is saved in C:\android
    2. In windows xp click start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. In Vista or windows 7 click start and type cmd in the search and hit enter.
    3. Navigate to the folder where you unzipped the Android SDK. If you are not familiar with the command prompt, I will make a list of the commands I enter in blue. The rest you see will be the text that will be generated by the command prompt: CD the directory of adb!!! ex. type cd hit space the drag the tools folder into cmd window. now you can adb push/adb pull etc.

    4. Type the Following command
    C:\android\tools>adb root
    * daemon started successfully *
    adbd is running as root

    If you have problems obtaining root (it says it's not available in a production build or whatever), try using root explorer and moving these files over from an SDCard. Remember to make the folders read write)

    5. Send the Modified telephony.db to the phone with the following command (keep in mind that you will need to substitute the directory I am using for the one where your telephony.db file is located

    C:\android\tools> adb push c:\android\telephony.db /data/data/
    85 KB/s (4096 bytes in 0.046s)

    6. Unplug your Phone and hold the power button to turn it off. Turn it back on and there you go!

    Some roms aren't allowing the telephony.db to work giving 245kb/s or any other like 130kb/s.

    My advice is if you get one to work, do a Nandroid back up, so you will always have a working web browser and MMS.

    I am having issues with my HTC Eris flashing, I'm a noob to this so bear with me. I was able to fully flash, but can't obtain a root with any of the methods, also, my internet works but not my apps, they only work when I'm connected via wifi. Help, is there a way to fix my apps and market. Thanks in advance. : )
