    First I already rooted and had ADW Launcher up. Set CPU worked well, as did titanium backup. I read a thread talking about the update will fix bugs, and I needed it for any known issues. I then read the ota will close the exploit for Pete's root method. Question is what to do? With P3 tweeting that clockwork mod is near ready, should we go ahead and stay rooted and see what happens? Our should we not root in case I have to take the phone back and pray the ota doesn't kill the root method. What's everybody else doing?

    P3 will have news for us soon I'm sure. My guess is we can flash that update file ourselves and be able to maintain root. I'd stay rooted if I were you.
