    Wait for OTA gingerbread or root now

    I don't know if this question has been asked. I'm not rooted and I want gingerbread. If I wait for the OTA version will that block me from rooting later? And what way should I go by rooting? I did see on youtube about the root without losing data.

    Hmmm.
    If you plan on rooting later, I'd say that you should just do it now.
    I don't really have much a reason, just the fact that if you do it later, you could have done it now.

    Will the new OTA update block me from rooting later?

    Shouldn't be a problem, I had the leaked Gingerbread on my Tbolt and I was able to root using the Revolutionary root method.

    ^ Brings up a really good point. and i was stuck on the same question you were on about 3 weeks ago. i ended up going with rooting. id rather stick with the developers on XDA than stick around and wait for another buggy update from verizon/htc/all the other manufacturers.
    Currently running: Stock (for now)

    Was running:
    ROM: BAMF Forever 1.0.7/Kernel: Imoseyon 3.7.1/OC'ed Stock-1.6GHz
    ROM: Synergy/Kernel: Ziggy Kernels/OC'ed Stock-1.5GHz

    i would just do it now. if you feel cumfortable with rooting, go for it. there really is no reason to hold off on it. if you want stock GB when it comes out, you can flash the RUU and loose root and just be stock GB, or you can wait (will still probably come out before the official OTA gets pushed) for the devs to make a flashable .zip of the OTA.

    if you have any interest at all in rooting, i suggest doing it now simply because no one knows what kind of root exploit, if any, will work on the official OTA.

    When is this GB OTA coming out? My phone is running perfectly on stock set up.

    I've also never rooted a phone before... So is have to spend God knows how long researching it and asking questions.

    What i hear about GB and/or rooting is that I'll get better battery life and can maybe use Swype and who knows what else... As long as the results are pleasing, and not a pain!

    The OTA has been going out for the past few days but it sounds like they really picked up the pace this morning. A lot of people are reporting having received the update this morning.
