But as of right now there is no easy way around it I believe you can use "rageagainstthecage" steps to root it

Super One Click Root works on the 2.2.1 Froyo on the mytouch 3g. SetCPU will install and you can control the cpu from 122 to 528 mhz, as is. If you want to overclock it, you are going to need a bit more work.

Rom Manager works oddly under this root, and would not permanently flash clockworkmod recovery or Amon_Ra from within rom manager; it always reverted to stock recovery after reboot. I had to manually flash the recovery. Other than that it worked fine.
