    the only risky things you can do on a phone are flash a new radio and unlock the bootloader

    99% of the time if something goes wrong while doing something else there is a way to recover

    but if something goes wrong while doing one of the two things above, well, then you might be screwed

    makes total sense. I assume once the procedure has been tested and works out well the instructions are fairly easy to follow for not a experience Android person.??

    sometimes a program gets released that does it all in one click
    so if you are really new to android, all you have to do is plug your phone into your computer, launch a program, and click root

    I'm sure we will be flooded with videos and walkthroughs for the root process once it is complete. ODIN is super easy to use though! Judging by the posts i have been seeing around, I could see root being accomplished by tonight or tomorrow....HOPEFULLY

    As soon as its available ill write one up. I have done tons of these for the fascinate and droid charge.

    Odin is Samsung software that will overwrite a partion on your phone and add whatever coding you provide.

    Yeah I saw that. Ill wait a bit before I start posting how to's and stuff while they work it out. The thing is at this point there is no way of going back to stock using Odin so a mistake could leave people with a huge paper weight

    Awesome!
    That means I can keep it, though I will wait for it to become more stable.
    Currently signal bars not working, multiview completely gone, but blocking mode is there.

    Glad to see a root method is available already, but yeah, going to sit on it until there's a more stable version out.

    This is a warning to anyone hoping to use this method.

    It will roll back your firmware to a pre-release version. This is being used by devs to try to figure out how to offer root to normal users. Use this version at your own peril.

    not if you buy your phones at full retail
    or if you have a burn line that you use just for upgrades (this would effectively make your unlimited data $40/month, but still a better deal than anything else they offer)

    I'm on the fence of and considering jumping in with root but also holding back to see what Adam Outler can do with the GN2 as he has done with previous devices.

    guys it isn't my intention to sound mean
    but if you couldn't figure out how to mod the APK files to work with multi-view
    i would hold off on trying to root on your own until someone releases a one click method
