Now the question....

Root, or Update?

Looks like another false alarm. Us Eris users should be used to this by now. :-/

Update if you want but if HTC patches the exploit the Dev's found you won't get root for a long time...I myself won't be updating.

Well the offer still stands. I'll have it ready a day after the phone gets rooted.

I took a look. They deserve this, simply for trying to be hush hush about what they're doing so they can look cool on the internet and win 600 bucks.

Unfortunately, it's users like yourself that will suffer the most.
