    Download Fresh Kitchen and then use the auto-root feature. Should be pretty simple for you.

    first question.
    Did you upgrade to 2.1 already?

    if so, forget rooting for now since the upgrade patched the exploit that was being used.

    if you didn't upgrade to 2.1, then read read read read and the read some more. start with the sticky at the top of this forum title root guide

    Are you saying you are currently on 2.1 and you want to root?? If so then, unfortunately, you are stuck where you are at for now.

    If you are 1.5 still, then you can root and install 2.1 ROM's.


    If on 1.5 go to geekfor.me to download the stuff the other poster referenced.

    Try THIS ONE then and see if that helps you more.

    You can also root manually... TRY THIS THREAD about halfway through the first post.

    If you aren't comfortable I would recommend reading up on rooting first and doing the first option.

    Rooting may seem daunting at first, but trust me if you follow the instructions step-by-step it's really easy. And if you by chance mess something up, come on here and ask for help and people will be more than willing to help you. (Be descriptive as to your problem if you have one)
