    Root the Droid Eris (One click apk method)

    From jcase at XDAdevelopers.

    Original thread here:
    Universal 1 Click Eris Root App Apk - No PCs, No Scripts Needed, EASY - xda-developers




    ---Start---

    Preface, This is not a free app, its a try before you buy app. If this app works for you, and you are happy with it. You are required to donate a meal to a homeless youth, or any amount of money to a youth outreach type program.

    This is a TeamAndIRC production. The source code is available on request, if good reason exists.

    I got bored and whipped this up tonight with ECLIPS3. This will root your Droid Eris running 2.1 with 1 click.

    If something doesn't work, don't freak just contact me. Tested working on latest RUU.
    This does NOT erase anything off your phone.You can keep you data/apps with this root!

    Step 1) download and install this apk

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8699733/erisone010.apk


    - VERSION 0.1.0

    Step 2) Run, read disclaimer, press button

    Step 3) Reboot, once rebooted your phone should have Amon's recovery. Yay.

    Step 4) Use the recovery to flash rootme.zip that is now on your SDCard, or the custom rom of your choice.

    Step 5) Go into settings, and turn usb debugging on. After you have root, please uninstall this app.

    Just that easy.

    Please come chat with use at
    http://chat.andirc.net


    or irc.andirc.net #droideris if you have a separate IRC client.


    Credit to:
    Eclips3 for spending hours and hours and hours testing my crap. Without him this app wouldn't exist.

    TopazAaron for the icon

    wag3slav3 for the root method

    Amon_RA for the recovery image

    erisuser1 for the post that gave me the idea.

    and to the authors of flash_image and superuser.apk.

    Droid Eris



    Hi,


    I'm trying to learn more about Rooting/Flashing. I am a certified CIS / I.T. major, so I know a good little bit of/about programming.

    Anyways, so I have my first Droid (HTC Eris from Verizon) and have spent almost a week trying to "Root" this thing (yes, I do understand what it means, finally

    I have noticed that there are 2 ways (this way[one-click APK], and the Unrevoked method). I have tried the one-click method waaaaay to many times [obviously] because it is getting me nowhere. I have tried "booting into recovery holding volume up" I can't count how many times and/or different ways. It has become extremely frustrating so I have decided to do the less-frustrating thing and finally ask for help.

    I also tried the other method, with no avail. I just can't get my PC [HP pavilion Elite running WIN 7 x64, Ultimate] to read the USB when the phone is plugged-in. I have tried both ways and just can't figure it.


    Please tell me what I'm doing wrong,
    Thanks,
    Todd R.

    I guess there's also this thread for rooting the device.

    It's getting so old that I might move it into the older device forums...

    Okay, after trying this AGAIN, I have determined that "pressing and holding Volume Up + Power / End" does absolutely nothing!

    Also, I have tried it with 3 different methods [at least, it seems]....
