    Well, upon attempting to read as much as possible before taking the plunge, I've run across a few methods to accomplish the same thing. I'm currently running 2.1 OTA(stock) and wanted the most basic way to root with the least chance of bricking.

    I've gone through the guides, but have also run into DroidMod's guide on flashing 2.1 with recovery.

    RSD is a little intimidating to me and I'm afraid if I breathe wrong on the phone, it will become a paperweight.

    Is using RSD the only/easiest way to gain root? Sorry for the redundant question, however there are a few threads on this topic and dated within a few months of one another and I'm which route to take.

    Thanks for the reply dreadnatty, that's exactly the method I'm going to be attempting shortly. RSD lite did not like my Vista machine, so I've switched over to my ancient xp rig.
