    It is very easy to root after 2.1. Just watch parts 1 and 2 of the vids "Samsung Moment 2.1 Rooting" on Youtube:

    Kudos to Samsung for not locking their phone down like they do at HTC. Rooting the Moment was stupid easy.

    I have updated to 2.1, and am looking to root. If I follow the videos posted above (after the update to 2.1 part), will I lose all my apps and customization that I have done? Or does adding the recovery and root part leave the rest alone?

    Thanks,

    You won't lose anything. Installing recovery and rooting will not wipe your data.

    The quick and painless way would be to go to SDX download and flash forcycstos 3.1.1 recovery with the Sprint Update tool then flash JoeyKrims 2.0.3 kernel (which includes root) using the recovery. Data will remain intact. Recovery 3.1.1 includes many features as well as Apps2SD.

    This is the easiest method to date for rooting, adding WiFi hotspot, and Theming capabilities.
