    I have just bought a Nexus one and my friend says i should root it.
    Can you tell me the benefits of doing this and the downsides as well.

    Also can you give me step by step instructions in rooting my phone.

    I have version 2.2

    All has been answered in great detail in the forum already. Grab a coffee and a cookie and spend a couple of hours reading. Looking for fast answers will only result in fast failure.

    Once you get a grasp of what is involved and you still have some questions we will be happy to help you out.

    What would you guys reccomend as the "easiest to follow directions" for beginners? I rooted my phone with the universal androot app, but want to jump all in and unlock the bootloader. It seems that there are SOOO many different instructions to root that I'm a little confused as to which one I should follow. Also, should I un-root the phone with the app, or will unlocking the bootloader just re-do everything? I have a t-mobile nexus one running 2.2.
    Thanks!
