That would be great!  I've been looking into rooting again lately.  The "game" seems to have changed since my first go-around with the G1.  These days the process seems to have been greatly simplified.  For example, the "z4root" application from xda-developers (which I believe is also in the market).  For supported phones, it appears to be a one-step process for either temporary or permanent root!

I haven't tried this on my Samsung Galaxy S 4G yet, but I might be giving this a shot soon.  Must figure out first how to back up and restore the existing image...

Hey Andy & list,

I've heard a number of folks ask to even just watch someone rooting one 
of the new Android phones. If any of you happen to be rooting any in the 
near future, we should make a lunch event or youtube video out of it :)
