    No you won't loose anything when you root.
    No you don't have to install custom rom.
    There are lots of reasons and benefits to root.
    And its easy as click.

    To my knowledge there is no root method available for .621 yet. But do you research. You may be able to go back to .602 or .605 however I am not totally sure on it.

    If you updated to 4.5.621 there is no way to root it yet and you can't sbf back to where you were before you updated. So your pretty much stuck where your at for now.

    As far as a solid root method for 621 i personally haven't seen one yet unless someone came out with one today. Unfortunately you can't use any other sbf besides the 621sbf anything else won't work.

    I feel your pain, it would drive me crazy not being rooted. Hopefully something will become available for you to root. Just curious why did you take the update in the first place? Im assuming you didn't know not to take it if your rooted.

    For the same reason I did.

    I updated my Droid X because I has having significant slow performance problems. The upgrade did fix the problems. However my phone is no longer rooted and I am unable to root the phone at all now. I am mindful of applications runing and keep the number to a minimum, I mind the memory as well. The Droid runs great now but I have to put up with Blockbuster wanting to constantly be updated. That Applications is an annoyance to me plus I never use it.

    I will be available to upgrade to a Droid Razor Mazz soon so it will be interesting to see which is available first a root for Gingerbread 4.5.621.MB810/ Build 4.5.1_57_DX8-51.
    or a new Razor Maxx.

    You can still root using zergrush but first you would need to do the milestone x 604sbf. The 604iso won't change your radio so you'll be fine with your verizon data. Unfortunately the only sbf you can use since you updated is the 621 or 604 sbf or you'll just brick your phone if you try any other sbf's. The following link has what you need to do the 604iso sbf then you'll get the option to root after you sbf, it's all built in to one file. After you root you can install any 2nd init roms like cm7 or cm9 but if you want to install a non 2nd init rom like liberty or vortex you'll need to install a patched version of those roms. Here's the link for the 604iso and zergrush, there's a how to video in the link also http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/d...-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html
