Here's a link for how the recovery which you will need once you root the phone http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...highlight=root . At the beginning of the paragraph, there's a link for "One Click Root".. just follow the instructions, it's pretty simple.

As for EB13, no she does not have it.. her phone is running on EC05 as shown in "Build- FROYO.EC05" which is just a version of Froyo (android 2.2) as is EB13..

Were you going to install a ROM on the phone once it's rooted or..? and if so, do you need to know how to flash the ROMs?

**and for future reference, you might want to try to search the forum.. there are wikis that would have told you what EB13 and EC05 are, and the link for rooting the phone was actually the first result when you search "root" haha.

Just figured I would warn you because some people on here get pretty pissed off when someone posts a new thread about something that they just yelled at 10,000 other people for

Well I would just try using ODIN to install a EH17(or any bulid you want) that has CWM/ACS Recovery build in.
Here is a link to a Deodexed/rooted/Busybox/CWM one to use that comes with ODIN and how to use it.

And if I had to suggest a ROM, it would be Urban MetaMorphisis. Thats what I've been using for a while now with next to no problems. Link Below.

Please, tell me if this helps

ok, for starters, ec05 is the sprint distributed rom version, as would be eb13, or eh17 or any other 2letter2number codes on the epic forums. i'd stay on ec05, it seems to be the most stable rom/modem combination. you can flash most any rom (including the eh17 leak) from the ec05 rom, and you'll suffer less reboots or problems (unless otherwise stated by the rom developer) as long as you wipe properly. as you seem to be familiar with rooting, remember to make nandroids at any important step. as far as roms, i like the simply aosp and the cm7, but they have no touchwiz or sprint bloatware. if you like that, try srf.

finally, please be respectful of the forum rules and post in the proper place. this should be in q&a

edit: the 'E' stands for the year, 2011, and the 'C' stands for the month, march. this rom was released in march of this year. EC05 was the last official release, and was froyo. anything after EC (ED, EG, EH) are all gingerbread leaks that are less reliable.

again thanks sorry for dumb questions

EH17 is the lastest Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" leak for the Epic, besides the Froyo ROMs its the most stable.
Yes this will auto root and install recovery. To boot into recovery hold down Power, Camera, volume down.
After you flash the first link I posted, boot up shut down and go back into recovery and flash the second link. after that you should be good to go.
ANd it's cool man but like they said, post in Q and A, no one minds helping though.

**Personally I prefer the Gingerbread leaks over Froyo due to the speed.**
