    Meh, root isn't the best option for everyone.
    But I've got a feeling you'd fare good with a rooted nexus :D

    First you'll need to install a custom recovery

    Amon_RA recovery is a favourite with a lot of people, I've just updated this morning to the latest 1.9 version, can be found here - [Recovery] [10-Oct-2010] RA-nexus-v1.9. alpha - xda-developers

    To install the recovery I use the instructions posted by Talderon who posts on this board taken from his Nexus One Google group

    Code (Text):
    1. 1) Download recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0.1.img to the root directory of your SD-Card
    2.  
    3. - Note: UnMount your SD-Card after copying these files, but keep your phone plugged in
    4. - or don't mount SD-Card at all and push the file via adb to /sdcard
    5.  
    6. 2) Save file "flash_image" to sdk tools directory:
    7.  
    8. 3a) In your terminal run
    9.  
    10. adb push flash_image /data/local/tmp/flash_image
    11.  
    12. 3b) if you just rooted the phone without rebooting, you can also push it to /system/bin (system still R/W) "adb push flash_image /system/bin/flash_image"
    13.  
    14. 4) run
    15.  
    16. adb shell
    17. su
    18.  
    19. - At this point, it will hang until you choose "Allow" on your phone with the SuperUser app pop-up
    20. - $ should now be replaced with #
    21.  
    22. 6) run the following commands:
    23.  
    24. cd /data/local/tmp
    25. (or cd /system/bin if you pushed flash_image there with step 3b)
    26. chmod 755 flash_image
    27. ./flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-nexus-v1.7.0.1.img
    Once you've done all that you can download a Custom ROM of your choice, move it to the root of your SD card, boot into recovery and flash.

    Make sure you do a Nandroid backup first mind!

    Also, don't flash it on top of the stock ROM like you said, unless the ROM specifically states a wipe isn't necessary.
    I think you can never be too sure so I always wipe before flashing any new ROM. The only time I flash on top is for updates :)

    Just to make sure. If i use the one-click referenced in OP, then install this custom recovery, my bootloader is still locked right?? (for warranty purposes), meaning I can flash stock and return the phone if i HAVE to without Asurion busting me for previously rooting it?

    If you didn't unlock your bootloader when rooting your phone, you're basically home free. Nothing will suddenly unlock your bootloader, certainly not flashing a new recovery.

    It will only get unlocked if you somehow decide to root it the old fashioned way.

    Anyone have any issues with the software "Waiting for Device" and no matter what, it never connects?

    I run adb devices on my Mac and it shows up but PC's it never does, virtual or not.
