The crew over at the Droid Forums has a working root that'll get you up and running on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, which is awesome. But it comes with some caveats: There's no recovery tool, so if you screw up, you're borked until restore files become available. Also, it's only available on Windows, though that's probably not tooo much of a problem for most Android enthusiasts.
