Okay... now this is nice! WiFi Tethering...

Overclocked to 710MHz (from 528MHz): using SetCPU

Removed Verizon Blot-ware:
-AmazonMp3
-Stocks (widgets and app)
-Twitter (Widgets and app)
-HtcFootPrints (Widgets and app)
-Teeter
-Visual Voice Mail
-PDF VIEWER (the adobe one is better than this one, get it on the market)


plus with apps2SD: 150 apps installed (twice as much as before root)

Also installed Adobe Flash 10.1
(doesn''t require root but works better w/over clocked unit)

Using: PlainJaneT2 v2.0 ROM

here's a silly question for us non techies....what's the major benefit of rooting our phones? when u say u clock it faster I assume u mean processing speed, what does that improve exactly?

Overclocking a cpu will basically make your phone faster. If you have an older phone that tends to "lagg" alot, this can help. But be careful, too high can make it unstable or make it overheat.

And it will likely decrease the battery life.

Rooting also allows you to install other custom Android ROMs on your phone, and allows you to uninstall certain apps that you couldn't without root. Also, you can take screenshots of your phone much easier once rooted.

hey Jay I need help...I have set CPU but how do u overclock it bcuz its telling the Max is 528 am I doing something wrong?

Anthony: Are you using setCPU app? If so open app: hit Menu button, and click the "Autodetect Speeds Recommended" button!

It should popup a "Requesting Root" box.. click OK! then it will popup a "Settings Saved" box.. click OK!

You should now be on the "Main" (1st of 5) tap and have the option to increase the "Max" slide bar to something higher then 528000; I recommend 710000 as the max personally... it seems the most stable Over-Clocked setting... anything Higher and the phone will freeze up and you will have to do a battery pull.

Let me know how it works for you.

that is how i rooted my eris, then got a rom manager, then setcpu, autokiller, launcher pro, and wireless tethering....the eris is awesome now....just wish i had more choices in rom's....only a few of them are 2.2 most are 2.1

ok. I followed step by step the process. Nothing. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I have a superuser perimission icon, but nothing comes up when opened.
I can't even figure out how to get rid of the bloatware. Which tells me something isn't right.
Can someone post a little more details of how to root using the eris one click process. PLEASE!
thanks.
