Has anyone tried this method of rooting?

If so, please post here with your experiences. Was it easy? Did it leave your phone just like it was before rooting, except now you have root access? (all apps, contacts, settings, etc. still intact?) Any suggestions? Thanks!

Same here. Been running this root for about 3 days, no problems yet. I have also tested the wifi tethering and it works great. Not as fast as my wireless network with comcast, but it works.
