    pros: slight overclock, ability to install custom roms, complete access to the filesystem

    cons: voids your warranty (reversible)

    It's pretty simple. Just follow this exactly and you won't have any issues. I did this two days ago and it was the smoothest root job I've ever done.

    I rooted to get rid of those stupid stock Apps like Skype and Peep. Also increased battery life and I use wireless tether to connect my laptop wherever I go. Plus tons of appearance mods to make others jealous.
