    I'm considering rooting, I'd like the extra degree of freedom it offers. However I tend towards being overly cautious, so I'm only really interested if there is a truly failsafe method out there. I'm not keen on the idea of ruining my new phone.

    What I'm looking for is a (preferably simple) rooting method with the smallest possible chance of stuffing something up. I'm good with computers and technology in general, but I'm a bit nervous about the whole process. So to get right down to it - What's the least risky way to root?

    Personally i would say the one click method.
    I think being apprehensive when rooting your phone would cover all of us first time doing so, bit like stepping on a ledge with a long drop in front of you.
    Its the unknown factor.
    Just take your time & you will be fine, basically the phone is just a hand held pc.

    I've had a change of heart and am downloading the official Froyo update. I can make the phone do everything I need it to without rooting, and I'm not up for the hassle at the moment. But thanks for your advice! :)
