Root Option for Motorola Charm
I just tried this (wife got a Charm) and it worked. So for those of you looking for a root option for your Charms here is the skinny:
1. It does not unlock the bootloader
2. Works on the Charm firmware version 2.1.1
3. Can unroot your device as well as root it (one click)
The details can be found here, as well as the downloadable .apk file universalandroot
This is a beta, so the usual risks are involved however I have rooted my wifes Charm with this and it works beautifully.

I also don't like the idea of Motoblur insisting on grabbing your phone number and email address before relinquishing control of the phone to its rightful owner. Once in their database, it's there forever, completely beyond your control. I would consider it a good service, but one must realize that they (or Google) are not providing it as a charitable organization. Only way to prevent it is sign up using a new blank sim and bogus email info, then root & remove blur before using your old sim or activating new service.
Now I just have to figure out how to remove all those unwanted 'features' without contributing to the mason's trade.Hic sunt dracones...
