CM91, did you also install a custom rom, or did you just do root only?
EDIT: NVM, I see in your other post that you are running the froyo rom v23, lol.
Just installed the OTA from Verizon this morning, and I must say it seems very responsive. I was going to do the whole nine yards (root, custom rom, overclock), but now I may just root.
Oh, also thinking about installing the engineering bootloader to get rid of the Hboot 1.49 S-on. Have you done that yet?

OK -- I took the bait and got the phone rooted using the procedure listed above. However, I need su to get an app to work the way I want to.
XDA says that I have to flash the su.apk to get SuperUser status. Not sure how to do that. I realize that I'm about the millionth person to ask, but the XDA forum participants basically tell you to search how, and searching the XDA forums turns up next to nothing of use.
Please indulge someone new to rooting and flashing ROMs and let me in on the secret (although I'm a technical person, slow step-by-step for-dummies directions are probably best). All I want is a rooted Eris with su access.
I know i did not say it stupid simple but if any of this did not make sense i will go one step in making it more simple
ALSO most cutom roms already have the APK in them so it would be a lot easier to just get a rom and flash that in too and that way you get the file and plus you get alot of cool stuff if you scared just get the Evil Eris Rom at XDA its a room with no real bugs that i could find
EDIT: and sorry if i dont respond fast cause im mostly in the XDA forums now i rarely come here cause theres not many eris users here anymore

Dont worry I havent rooted or tried yet because i realized how unclear my question is and how unclear the information is to me also. Basically i need a link or something with a how-to/step-by-step for newbies on how to put this root on my phone. I mean, am i supposed to just put the recovery img in the root of my sd card??? Im confused on how to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated and i apologize for not being able to understand this.
OK im not going to lie to you there is not a one step by step guide line yet i had to go through i think it was 3 topic pages to try to find what i was looking for and had to kinda pull it all together but this might be the most help full Root for ERIS LEAKERS! - xda-developers

Manual OTA update and rooted Eris
Well, I couldn't get the rooted Eris to take the manual update file. The phone says it can't find the signature for the zip file, and aborts. So I guess I have to wait for the actual OTA version. If the phone won't take it for some reason, then I think I'll defect to the dark side and try Evil Eris or one of the Froyo builds. I could really use the Bluetooth dialing that Froyo promises...
