    What are the "rooting" choices now? And which is the recommended one for a non-computer programmer/hacker/etc. i.e. the simplest or more fool-proof?

    droidmod works good, but I have video tutorials that will show even the least experience how to install any rom and to root. On the last page it shows that after you install droidmod (the easiest), how to use that to then install other roms ie bugless beast, ultimate droid, etc.

    I was a big chicken too -- educate yourself and then just do it. You'll never regret it.

    I have a little time, after you read up on it, if you choose I will helpp you root, but those videos are so thorough you could literally play video and pause it and follow every step with your phone in hand.

    I am going to need to do some homework.... Matt's, on the surface seems more involved so maybe the DroidMod will be easier and would be the least likely for me to "kill" my phone.

    My steps are definitely more involved. Keeping in mind though that you will be 100% more educated about the process doing it my way :)

    But if you feel more comfortable having it done for you, I would still read my guide so you understand the process...then use DM
