I had been hesitant to do this for ages but after 2 years of use and no upcoming updates likely from Google decided to root the  phone and look for other ROMs. The rooting was much easier than I expected. I used this exploit.

Now that it's rooted I am wondering what GZ members are using if they have a rooted N1

Sounds good. But maybe I should just wait for CM9 since there is no urgency. Presumably I would do a Titanium backup and also a clockworkmod backup?

Just so I get this right.

I have taken a Titanium Backup and also installed Clockworkmod and the ROM Manager and backed up the current ROM.

I install CM7 or whatever using the standard firmware upgrade procedure or possibly using ROM Manager. This gives me a vanilla uncustomised release. I then restore all my settings using Titanium?

Assuming youre running CWM...

1. Backup apps using Titanium Backup
2. Boot into recovery
3. Create a backup
4. Wipe data/factory reset as well as cache and dalvik cache
5. Reboot into recovery
6. Install ROM from the .zip file you shouldve placed on your SD card before wiping
7. Reboot phone
8. Run through all the setup stuff
9. Download Titanium Backup from the market
10. Restore applications
