First and foremost: awesome. Effing awesome. I bought the NC with the sole hope that someone would root it, so thanks for that.
Secondly: What's this mean in terms of a "layman's root"? I only ask because I am one of the afore mentioned laymen (I've rooted one phone by copy/pasting a detailed guide), and I'd like to know if I should start getting really stoked now, if I should wait a few days, or if there will ever be a (relatively) simple way to root.
Regardless, a win is a win, and thanks to everyone who made it happen.
