Hi, I have the Nex1 on 2.2 and want to Root it. Can someone explain what it will do for me, what pro's and con's there are and (as simply as possible) how do I do it. I have a PC with Windows 7.
That's all you need to know. I'd recommend going for the stable Cyanogen (5.0.8?) instead of CM6 RC (since it is not 'officially out' and stable yet)
I rooted my stock FRF91 with these instructions and it worked great. If you havent rooted your phone yet, you should do it just for the added battery life by installing SetCPU. I get 2X my stock battery life.
Also, a friend of mine just rooted his nexus with a "one-click" rooting app that came out earlier this month. Seems to have worked great for him.
i've got my N1 2.1 eclaire (epf30) about 2 weeks ago and since then i've been trying to update it to 2.2
so far so good...
i have manage to update to 2.2 froyo (frf91) and unlock it but im having a hard time rooting it cause the superboot for frf91 from modaco is not working for me. i cant even unzip it. can anybody tell me what to do. tnx!!!

I just installed the update from there, it has the root and all is working just fine for me. But I did have my bootloader unlocked. It was really easy using the rom manager though.
