    Which way did you go? I intended on rooting the day I got the phone, just had to wait for it.

    I went with the OTA. I'm sure there will be a root option for those who upgraded via the OTA so I'll wait for that.

    Root. Then I went ahead and installed the ROM based on the OTA, which is more or less minus the bloat.

    Rooted this weekend and not looking back. Already have CM7 support and other ROMS are coming. Great to see HTC updating there phones though. Other manufactures should take note.

    I went with the OTA..As much as I wanted to root my phone. I've only had the phone for a little over a week and will wait for the exchange policy to run out which I think is 90 days thru Costco.
    Lets see what will come up in the next few days or weeks as far as rooting

    You don't need Linux. AlphaRev re-released the Windows app.

    I might give it another go again then. Problem is the only windows laptop we have is a hunk of junk.

    I miss being able to do it with one-click and using my mac.

    OTA GB & really liking it. I'll root when the warranty runs out / they say that I won't get the next OS.

    OTA here. Will wait fora GB root option. Wireless tether is the only reason I want to root. I love everything else about this phone.
