Get Root on HTC Droid Eris via GUI application
XDA forum member ECLIPS3 has written a nice GUI for Windows which enables you to root your device, manage applications and reboot via a simple interface.
Eris Master Application provides a great GUI to help users root their device from the stock Android 1.5 (Cupcake) to Android 2.1 (Eclair) root with a custom ROM installed.
The application also allows users to reboot, enter recovery mode, and enter the bootloader and additionally provides a way to backup applications as well as restoring them, with market updates.
Important: This is not for those on the OS 2.1 leak. It is only for those on OS 1.5.
Eris Master Application is for Windows only.
.NET 4.0 is required.
To download, and for more information, visit the application thread.
