    Rooting your phones allows you to have full access to the root source code of your device and removes the restrictions placed on the device by the carrier. Allows you to do things that you would normally have to pay for such as wireless tethering. Allows you to remove carrier installed apps. Allows you to clear the phones cache to speed it up and overclock/underclock as well as undervolt the phone for speed and battery life respectivly. With the Mytouch, Universal Androot works like a charm. Just load it on your phone and click root with superuser for 2.1-2.2. Takes about 5 minutes from download to your comp to having a rooted device.

    Super one click root works as well for the mytouch 3g. It is quick and easy.
