Go for SuperOneClick if you have a Windows loaded on your PC. If you have Linux or OS X, just run a VirtualBox and use SuperOneClick. Should you have some issue connecting to device using SuperOneClick and Windows on VirtualBox, just disable USB2.0 support withing VirtualBox' settings before running SuperOneClick.

Meanwhile, the CM7 camera is working fine for me.

On newer FW SuperOneClick is not working. DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit works on all FWs.

I've tested it on latest Argentinian stock FroYo 2.2.2, on 2.2 product codes XEU, NEE, CNX and all of them are being rooted properly using SuperOneClick.

SuperOneClick 2.2 did not work, but SuperOneClick 2.1 did the trick for me.
