Default Thinkin of rooting

So I am thinking about rooting I hear it is really easy on this phone. I saw an app called super one click is that what I should use? If not then how do I go About it. Also how easy is it to unroot just in case I have to send it back for waranty. Also when gingerbread comes out will that update erase the rooting. I am thinking that I probably wont root until after I see how gingerbread update works and if I am not happy with it then I will root. But either way I would like to know how to do it just because I am nosy.

To the OP, If your wanting to root then I suggest using this guide.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1056847

When using nvflash I've found its just easier to set it up to go to your internal memory instead of your external ( I've had problems with the sdcard not wanting to mount in recovery when using the external memory. )



Once your rooted, just make a backup using clockworkmod and you'll be able to go back to that rom if you run into any problems. The above guide also is a way to get back to being unrooted.

With the Gingerbread update, they should be releasing it sooner or later. A build of it was leaked and its what a few of the roms that are out are based on.

Gavrie1 thank you for the info. Just a quick question the link says for mac and linux I am using win 7 so does that matter? And I think I read something about people haveing a problem with the SD card mounting so I think going to the internal is the way to go.

Try this one.

[RECOVERY][APP]Update 6-16: One-Click ClockworkMod 4.0.0.2 NvFlasher - xda-developers


I meant to place this one in my first post. Sorry about that. I was helping someone else out who had a mac and didn't properly copy paste this link into the reply.
