Default Another rooting question

I am simply trying to find the updated instructions.
Cyanogen links to Simple-help (http://www.simplehelp.net/2009/10/04...android-phone/) which requires the use of the flashrec.apk file which has since been patched.

Other instructions provide steps to upgrade from a previous ROM or assume the phone is already rooted.

And lastly, there is this 2 year old link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=442480) that uses telnet, which I thought was patched.

It would appear that the cynanogen cease and desist happened in Oct but I do not see any complete instructions (from a nonrooted perspective) since then.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
