    If you would look at the Sickies and read a Little you would learn :)

    Check out the hacking subforums. You're going to need to go back to 2.0.1 from 2.1

    There are a lot of great threads there.

    You need to Flash SPRecovery with RSD Lite, then load a Rom to obtain root.

    Umm, not quite. To cannot flash a ROM until root access is obtained.

    OP, read the stickies.

    Umm yes, that IS a way to root 2.1. You flash SPRecovery with RSD Lite, then download a Rom that is able to be applied with the update.zip method. The rom gives you root.

    There is no need to go back to 2.0.1.

    Either way, can someone point this guy towards Matt3w's guides? I'm on my phone, and linking is a headache.

    just to ease the OP's mind, I tried this last night and it worked perfect. The process of installing windows on my mac was a royal PITA but when that was all said and done and I had rsd and the drivers installed it took about 10 minutes to do. If you are running a windows computer you should be all set. The instructions make for a very easy walkthrough.

    +1 it is really easy to do. I don't have a mac, so I didn't have those troubles.
