    There is a thread on the main eris board with a link to xda forums, we have root. Barring any fatal errors.
    HTC Touch Pro>HTC Droid Eris>Moto Droid X>Samsung Focus>HTC Sensation 4G>Nexus 4>Nexus 5

    So that didn't work on the leak 2.1v3 I would have thought it would have seeing its the same as the ota. I really hope someone finds a way to root the leak or at least roll back

    I've decided to use the walkthrough since the last time I checked the master app wasn't available.

    My question is...am I safe in assuming that I can choose a different Eris ROM than the one provided in the Flash a Custom ROM step?

    That brings up the question of how to tell you're getting the right root file. Anyone?

    Find an application that can check for the MD5 hash of the file that you download, and check it against the file that you have downloaded. In fact, I would do it after download, and then do it again after you have copied it to the SD card, if you can.

    The file can be downloaded from - make sure that you download the correct one - the one that is labeled root! And, as you can see, the MD5 is 63eacc5ede3b179f95dc22d8ef585f94

    This tells you an easy way to check an MD5 hash in Windows:
