    I rooted the first weekend I had this phone... not for battery purposes, just because I could, besides why wait for something when you can get it right away! Bamf Sense 3.0 GB is awesome!

    You can root now and when the official GB drops, root and install it or wait for the official version to be made root safe.

    Both of ours are still unrooted so you aren't alone. It's always been a risk reward thing for me. Although the risk seems minimal, there isn't much reward for me either so I just wait. I'm glad the option is there though if I ever change my mind.

    I rooted after getting tired of waiting for GB. Glad I did, phone is awesome now. So much you can do after rooting it. I'm running Gingeritis 1.1 and its good. I bounced around with roms and this one is the best for me, thunderstick is nice though too. It's so easy to root and very worth it. No more iPod envy.

    Boot it and Root it! Drinking Miller Lite-ning!

    Yes you are one of the last to root. I would recommend rooting but if you don't want to Gingerbread will come soon enough.

    I rooted the weekend I got the phone (release date, for me). Wasn't really having many problems as the rebooting thing was once or twice a month. Just to be safe, I unrooted and flashed both the MR2's (the 1.66 leak and VZW's 1.70) returning to stock. Currently waiting for GB to drop.
