    You can do it either way...I was rooted when I did the OTA...everything went smoothly and all I had "go wrong" was I lost root. I used z4root and was back rooted again in less than 7 minutes.

    Others have had issues with the OTA installing if they were rooted...so its a 50/50 shot either way. The overwhelming opinion is to un-root, the download and install the OTA, then re-root using whatever method you are comfortable with...
