    If your current firmware is 2.1, you can't root without reverting to 2.01.

    christim's post is #16. Read #3 in his signature, that should get you back to 2.01. Then get dmupdater from droidmod.org to root painlessly. From there you can ROM to your hearts content. Spend a bunch of time reading before you do anything. Make sure you're comfortable with what you're doing before you start. It'll save stress later.
