I've heard of people using Aman Ra too. I've always used Titanium for the Apps. Though at the moment, I've still not rooted since it will kill the data in many of my apps. errr.....I want the freedom and my data!;)

I really really want to root my phone, but since this method requires the phone to be wiped first and there is no good way to back it up, I haven't.:angry: All my previous phones have gotten rooted, but all previous method we able to be done without wiping the phone. If it was a new phone, no big deal. but now i've had the phone for quite a while and its a huge pain now. :unsure:
That is the only reason i have not rooted and ROM'ed yet because i don't want to loose my game data. (Progress, in game purchases, etc.) If it is going to get wiped anyways, what is the point in waiting?
And today the rumor is a June release for ICS.
Have OTA updates wiped other phones before? HTC? Verizon?
I'm only guessing because we haven't had a major update yet. I could very well be wrong and I'd like to know what happened with the Vivid in order to gauge what may happen with us.
Were there problems with the OTA update for the Vivid? I have looked around online, but the only time i see data wipe is rooting was involved?
Do you think it is worth waiting for the OTA update?
I rooted my old Eris with no problems, and it really sped up the phone. The main reason i want to root is to activate my wifi hot spot without paying monthly, get ICS, as well as getting rid of the bloatware.
I guess i am expecting to root eventually(and loose data sadly), so what would be the benefits of rooting before or after the update?
Which is the most stable ROM. I like sense because it is comfortable, but everyone tells me it is a resource hog. Then i hear 4.0 is lighter? thoughts?
