Default Rooting program

So all I have seen are 2 and 3 year old posts about which program to use to root. There have been some recent ones that have a root and kernel replace, but I just want to get my feet wet with the root first. The problem is, I've seen that a lot of the older root programs do not work with 2.3.5, which is what I'm running.

Soooooooooo, can anyone definitively direct me to a 2.3.5 compatible root program, or do I have to revert back?

I would like to put CM9 (or maybe CM10 after I get confident) on my phone, but not sure which kernel to use. I've seen enough issues reported with the Corn Kernel that it makes me apprehensive.

If you've got stock 2.3.5 then the corn kernel should be fine. That's the one I used and had no issues. That said, I did immediately flash ICS using Doc's Master ICS Rom (download link 130MB). That's a good one to get your feet wet with because it replaces the Corn kernel with the Glitch kernel and includes all the gapps. Or you can go to CM9 which is now in final release, but you'll need to get the gapps separately. If you are apprehensive, let me know and I can walk you through it. Piece of cake, really.
