Gumbo-Eris Project (need volunteers)
I said I would port my Hero ROM and build a kernel for the Eris when it was rooted. I need a few people to get me some info:
From a clean (data wipe and DON'T sign in to anything) Eris I need:
The entire /system dir zipped up
The kernel config
The entire /data dir zipped up
To get the /system and /data directories use adb to pull everything
To get the boot image (from adb):
adb shell su cat /dev/mtd/mtd2 > /sdcard/boot.img exit reboot
To get the kernel config:
adb pull /proc/config.gz /PATH-YOU-WANT-TO-SAVE-IT

Install Amon-Ra's custom recovery image.
Then you can flash and load anything you like, in any version. "Root" is just one file, with the correct permissions, in the correct place
Once dropped in the ROM from the last update you then have a stock rooted ROM to build from. It just seems like there's no interest.

Oh. Sorry I must have misunderstood what you were saying gbhil. So let me get this straight: you want all that data from a clean wipe on any current ROM? If that's the case, I won't be able to use ABD as DOS doesn't recognize the phone with current ROMs on XP. So I will need to do it through terminal. If you could tell me the steps to fit using a terminal that would be great. Otherwise it might take a bit through trial and error.
lol. I almost have myself confused.
You need to be rooted to do any of this.
You need to be running 1.5 and have Amon Ra's recovery installed
I can't whip up a rooted 1.5 ROM and guarantee that it will work (or even boot) as I don't have an Eris.
When someone releases a rooted 1.5 ROM I'll just get what I need from it. No need for anyone to be a guinea pig for this
