    Root is available. It came out last night. Go ahead and root because they have already released a GB ROM based off of the ota upcoming:

    +1 for rooting. You'll get GB eventually but you will want full control over your phone. I just rooted and uninstalled all the Verizon bloatware.

    Yeah I had to do it from Linux to get S-Off. Then I had to install the recovery, then I could actually install the update.zip and root it. Now I'm in root bliss. :)

    Here is everything I did:

    AlphaRev X - Make it your phone[FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]For those who want to use Ubuntu (it's not that difficult once you get used to it):[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]1. Download Ubuntu from the Ubuntu site.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]2. Burn image onto CD/DVD (follow instructions provided at the site. If you have Windows 7, you can simply use the Windows Disk Image Burner program).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]3. Reboot computer. Allow Bootup popup menu (usually F8?).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]4. Select DVD/CD-drive.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]5. Wait a bit for things to load. Choose "Try" aka Live CD Mode, no need to install, unless you want Ubuntu.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]6. Connect phone. Download AlphaRevx for Linux. Keep that browser window open.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]7. Extract the downloaded file and make sure it's at the root directory (in Ubuntu, that's Ubuntu/Ubuntu, if I recall correctly).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]8. Search for the Terminal (Windows key pops up the search, I think; otherwise, it's the icon on the top left corner of your screen), run Terminal.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]9. Type in "sudo ./alpharevx".[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]10. It'll provide a key. Go back to the browser window where you downloaded Alpharevx - there's a form to fill out. Type in the key. It'll generate a second key. Type that key into the Terminal.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]11. Make sure it says that everything is successful. It'll ask if you want to flash Clockwork. Type in "Y".[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]12. Once it shows success, reboot.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]13. Go to this page and download the superuser file "su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip" under "To Root". Follow those instructions shown.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]14. You're done.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]To install Clockworkmod after AlpharevX[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]1. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Get fastboot and adb tool for windows[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]here:[/FONT]

    Run the command as appropriate for your OS;
    fastboot flash recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (windows)
