    HTC Dream (G1) from rogers - wanting to root

    Hey,

    I recently picked up an HTC Dream (G1) from rogers with one intent - to get experience with rooting.

    Even though I didn't pay much for the phone, I really don't want to brick the thing the first time I try and root it.

    I have been reading a lot of the posts on XDA and needless I am a little confused.
    I found this tutorial
    I was wondering if anyone had rooted their own HTC Dream following this guide and had success with it?

    -----------------------------------------------

    Hmmm, I think perhaps I have not done enough reading.
    rooting the Dream sounds like it is definitely going to be more challenging then I previously thought!

    I successfully rooted and installed CM6 on my G1 using the XDA guide.
    Its pretty sweet, although a little laggy.
    I switched to Zeam launcher though and most of the laggyness is gone
