    Yes, you wont be rooted anymore. I don't know about rerooting afterwards.

    Also, if you choose the ota, once it installs don't touch the phone for 10-15 minutes. Its part of the update process for some reason for it to sit on the red eye for quite a while.

    From what P3 said a few weeks ago you couldn't be rooted and take the ota install, it causes it to fail. You have to be complete stock for the ota. Yes, for the time being you give up root unless you install the 2 part .zip files from mydroidworld.com.
