    After doing alot of reading, I'd like to finally root my phone. Unfortunately, I'm a newb when it comes to something this extensive (just don't have the knowledge).

    First of all, I just had the phone updated last week due to random re-boots. The current Firmware is 2.1-update 1.

    I thought I saw a thread a few days ago about not being able to root 2.1 - is this correct?

    My primary reason for wanting to root is to be able to occasionally tether my laptop when wifi isn't needed - the increased speed is a second benefit.

    From here, where do I go?
