Default Universal 1 Click Eris Root App Apk - No PCs, No Scripts Needed, EASY

## I will clean up the code, and UI this weekend: and for those with any doubts:

## To those tempted to redistribute my apps, or apps based on my work without permission. This will only result in me using a new obnoxious DRM system. Please stop it.

Preface, This is not a free app, its a try before you buy app. If this app works for you, and you are happy with it. You are required to donate a meal to a homeless youth, or any amount of money to a youth outreach type program.

This is a TeamAndIRC production. The source code is available on request, if good reason exists.

I got bored and whipped this up tonight with ECLIPS3. This will root your Droid Eris running 2.1 with 1 click.

If something doesn't work, don't freak just contact me. Tested working on latest RUU.
This does NOT erase anything off your phone.You can keep you data/apps with this root!

Step 1) download and install this apk - VERSION 0.1.0

Step 2) Run, read disclaimer, press button

Step 3) Reboot, once rebooted your phone should have Amon's recovery. Yay.

Step 4) Use the recovery to flash that is now on your SDCard, or the custom rom of your choice.

Step 5) Go into settings, and turn usb debugging on. After you have root, please uninstall this app.

Just that easy.

Please come chat with use at or #droideris if you have a separate IRC client.

Credit to:
Eclips3 for spending hours and hours and hours testing my crap. Without him this app wouldn't exist.

TopazAaron for the icon

wag3slav3 for the root method

Amon_RA for the recovery image

erisuser1 for the post that gave me the idea.

and to the authors of flash_image and superuser.apk.
I'm taking a break of an undetermined length. Please don't contact me about exploits

Something important?

This is 100% legit! Very easy to do. One click. If you cant click one button. You dont deserve root lol!

If you do have troubles:
Rooting your phone? Backing up and reinstalling apps?
Use this application made by ECLIPS3 and Jamezelle

I'm confused about one thing. If it is a try before you buy app, and it is a one-click root app, then why would anyone pay for it? The majority of users only need to root once for the most part, so what's to say that people will download it, use it one time to root, and because they only need it for that one time operation, not donate at all? I can see a try before you buy for an application that can recieve daily use. Bravo nonetheless! You guys think of everything for the Eris!
