Just to make it clear this is not my work, I have taken it/linked it from another post on XDA - here.

What this does

It is an app you install (currently you must side load it, but it will be on the market once it's had some testing here on XDA), that has a single button that will root your device. Should work on ALL Android devices -- please leave a note if it works or doesn't work on your device.

How safe is this?

Should be 100% safe - nothing on disk is changed besides the root binaries, so if something goes wrong, simply rebooting the device should fix up any and all issues. Let me know if you find any bugs!

I can confirm that this works 100% with 2.1.

Here =)
Thanks.

It started the process and rebooted, but hadn't installed Busybox, so downloaded it from the Market and it confirms the phone is actually rooted. Good start but far from perfect.

Well, you can use the old X10Root app to apply shell root after this but it would be nice if it was included :)

    Ok trying now. One question... If I root and delete these pre-installed apps and have problems afterwards... can I just factory reset?

    You will have to re-install the firmware or install the apps if you can.
