If you read the directions very carefully and pay attention to what you're doing, almost nonexistent. There's also a program for the computer called super one click.
BE AWARE THAT TO FLASH A CUSTOM ROM ON YOUR G1 YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED A CUSTOM SPL. Do some reading to make sure you do this correctly.
If you just want to root your existing software with universal androot you just install, press the button and go on your merry way.
