I'm having the same issue, upgraded to gingerbread, no root. If anyone knows why I'd be willing to work on fixing it.

Have you or anyone else tried traditional root apps yet? Something like gingerbreak or super1click?

I think I have tried everything from 1click to manually running gingerbreak to manual adb zergrush and nothing so far all that damn ATT bloatware is annoying

I've tried both gingerbreak both and super1click. Are there other methods I should try?

This may be the wrong thread for this, but where do rooting efforts start? Is there a general guide for rooting the previously unrooted? I am a software developer by training and trade, but embedded linux installations aren't something I've messed with much, but I very interested in becoming involved.

Same problem. I even tried SuperOneClick - which froze at "Step #7".

Lesson learned: read the thread front to back before acting (i.e., updating).

Perhaps Crimson found an answer "later that day"?

Sorry all I've had quite a hectic schedule and haven't really had time for any crossover stuff. I'll update you guys if I find anything don't worry.
