CAUTION: Rooting the new MyTouch3G Fender LE or MyTouch 1.2 (phones with a 3.5mm headphone jack on top) requires a different process. Be careful not to mistake flashing instructions for regular 32As which do not take into account this new hardware (these devices appear to be hybrid 32A/32B boards, thus ordinary methods will result in the touchscreen not working). It is possible to get root, but there are no custom ROMs as of February 2010. Two threads at XDA here and here explain the situation further. This is an evolving issue; please be patient with developers.
For standard 32As, 'rooting' usually doesn't rely on any exploit per se, because most 32A Magics are shipped with a fastboot compatible SPL installed. If you see the "3 skateboarding Androids" screen when you boot to fastboot (Volume Down + Power), you should be able to do the following:

Read what you quoted. On any phone with Android (ANY PHONE), they have the 'skating' droids. Don't think just because that picture is there that the process is the same.

Default nope you cant

Nope you can't follow that guide as far as I understand what the person is trying to say is that if you have the 32a with 3.5mm on top than you need to use a different method to root evebthough you might see the Android on skateboard as the person described this is a hybrid of 32a and we all noe that 32a spl is the one with fastboot enabled which is the Android on skateboard

I think that you need to search and read more.

I have the MyTouch with 3.5 mm jack and now I'm running a ported version of Stokes 2.1 Eclair rom. Not only that but I also have it themed. There are a few things that aren't working but I certainly prefer having eclair with no bluetooth and video than stock. But that's just me.

As I said, it isn't 100% yet but I'm using it and it has rebooted my phone a couple of times (literally like twice). Bluetooth doesn't work, 3D doesn't work, Launcher2 doesn't work, live wallpapers don't work (some third party from Market does), a2sd doesn't work (but you don't really need it) and swap didn't work for me without adding a script to phoneprioritizer.

Other than all of that Stokes Eclair 2.1 runs beautifully on my MyTouch and I average 13000 or so on BenchmarkPi.
