    As Zindol said, I have used all the arguments myself as well why not to root. Too scared, too much work, not worth it, no longer warrantied, blahblah. I never even jailbreaked my iPod, frightened I would damage it. I'm not even sure what convinced me to root my N1 in the end, I guess it was Neon and Thomas and a few others' enthusiasm that did it. But, now that I did, I will never look back. CyanogenMod is so much faster, stable and versatile, and they release all updates long before stock releases them plus countless other goodies.

    Is not going to happen, customs ROMs will always be better just because they are always ahead of stock, at least CM will be :D And you know what? I think Google actually wants it that way, they are not control freaks like Apple. I think they actively encourage modding, and as many others already said, the Nexus One seems as if it was made for rooting.

    However, if some of you do decide to root in a year or so, you'll have one benefit we converts don't have anymore: the exciting experience of a phone that feels brand new again. We are spoiled rotten already :D

    I'm newly rooted. It reminds me when I had WM and was cracking it to all hell. LOVE IT.

    The main difference is the speed. I am still surprised how much faster this is.

    I've got a couple questions.

    Once rooted, do I still have access to all the paid apps I'd already purchased on my stock N1?

    Is it possible to back up my current stock setup similar to doing a ghost image of my HDD on my PC? What I mean is making a copy onto my SD card (or wherever) of my current stock N1 with apps, settings, SMS, contacts, etc... that can be reverted to in the event I don't like the ROMs. I'm aware that the bootloader will remain unlocked.
