    Cyanogen works like a champ, my phone's never run faster (see link gwcaton posted)

    Because of the fact that when you root your phone this method, it totally overrides the 2.2 OS and turns it to 2.1, BUT hear me out, your phone WILL work better by the end, even better than it did with Froyo. The Cyanogen ROM makes your phone (at least it did with both mine and my uncle's phone) MUCH more efficient, and you can actually use live wallpapers as well as overclock the CPU (requires you to buy an app for $2 on the market, but it's worth it). Totally worth rooting a Mytouch this way IMO.
