Exclamation Rooting the 1.5 cupcake version of the G1

I have not yet rooted my phone and was planning to do it this week. But I stupidly updated my phones firmware to cupcake 1.5.

I am a UK owner of the G1 phone. What should I do to root. Should I somehow downgrade my firmware.

Is it easy to root?

I also watched a video from CoolPstuts on youtube (YouTube - How To Mod / Jailbreak G1 (to get root access) pt. 1) and his explanaton for rooting was good. Could someone tell me if that is all I have to do even if I have 1.5?

What are the pros and cons of rooting?

Thanks in advance, I am a real noob. ALL HELP APPRECIATED!

You would have to go back to RC7 (UK) for a rootable version.
For flashing the G1 outside of the designated upgrade path, you would have to create a goldcard sd (once) and apply hardspl later. After rooting, you can update to 1.5 again. There are plenty of links available everywhere.
