If you haven't already, grab the newest ROM out there for the Eris, 0_3.zip.

After doing so, you can download and flash this patch which will give your Eris LIVE WALLPAPER and the NEXUS LOCKSCREEN. I have the patch and personally I prefer sense because it has 7 homescreens, but the LWP's run smooth and the Nexus Lock is really cool. Highly Recommend:

Well the LWP is pretty self explanatory. Here is nexus lock:

If your worried about not liking it, create a nand backup before you install. If you don't like it, restore from that same backup.

Well, I like it alot because it unlocks much smoother than the HTC lock screen, it is more Iphone style. I just find it much more appealing and easier to use. As for a page on what to do with root, I don't know. You can always just play around with it and if things go wrong just do a recovery.

When you installed the patch, did you have to do anything special to get the N1 lock screen? I followed the how to, I have the N1 launcher, and live wall papers, but no lock screen...

FYI... per the reply on xda, the latest version posted (v1.2 - launcher2lwp.zip 2-22-2010) does NOT have the N1 lock screen included. The video in the xda post and the pictures here show the lock screen, but it is not included in the downloadable zip.

The v1.2 - launcher2lwp.zip 2-22-2010 zip only includes the N1 home screen/launcher. Which I was not a huge fan of. I prefer Sense. I did really like the live wall papers that came with the N1 home screen/launcher. But, it seemed as if my phone was slightly sluggish when running this, and I prefer the function of a speedy phone over the cool factor of live wall papers.

AFAIK, there is NO WAY TO UNINSTALL. I could very well be wrong on this, but this was my impression. I would highly suggest creating a nand backup prior to flashing either of these zips. That way, if you don't like them (which I found I didn't in the case of the launcher), you can revert back to your nand backup.

There was a link provided to the lockscreen in the xda thread. And it is amazing! I'll see if I can find the link and post it here.

From the xda thread...

Yeah there is no way to uninstall, but why would you when you have a backup to revert to lol

i tried the nexus one lock and i hated it. the htc gives you more room to be less precise to unlock. plus the vibrate after it unlocks is annoying. i reverted to a backup.
