The world of rooting often necessitates compromises. You'll have to decide what is most important to you.
For example, I'm not interested in rooting until (1) my warranty expires, (2) I can reset the flash count so I don't void my warranty, or (3) I'm convinced -- through discussion in the forums here and elsewhere -- that I should root and forgo my warranty all together.
Since I'm reading about hiccoughs, I see no way to reset the flash counter, and my warranty has not expired, I'm waiting a little longer to root. You'll have to decide your own level of involvement in Project Mayhem.
Thank you to developers, moderators, and members of these forums.
Please: be generous with that "thanks" button.
