    I want to jump on the Liberty GB nightly but I know the official release of GB is right around the corner. Should I wait for the Liberty ROM associated with the official release or jump in? Will I be able to upgrade to this in the Liberty toolbox once it is out or am I going to have to SBF it?

    Just a friendly PSA: the root situation for the OTA is unknown still, most of what's being said is that the outlook isn't good. Might want to wait on the OTA until some Dev's have had a chance to look at it and can chime in on whether you'll be able to regain root after accepting.

    Liberty GB is better than any OTA release.

    man, if they made root a pain in the ass or impossible to get, I would be so pissed, and probably gonna have to drop VZW for some other carrier.

    I'm sure the Carriers wouldn't agree ;)

    they always say that root is going to be impossible. No reason to sell out to some bo-ricker carrier just to gain root access. What good is that if you can't use the phone because you have no signal. Install the leaked version, and try it. You can always SBF back to stock, get the OTA if/when they figure out how to root. If you are not familiar with all of this, there is plenty of info. in here and the xda forums to help you. The main thing here is to know what you are doing. Good luck.

    Rooting is never impossible - it just takes time for the devs / nerds to find an exploit to be able to root.

    That's not to say it's not difficult to root, it's just a matter of time.

    All these stupid things that VZW / Carriers are imposing are stupid. So much for the "open" operating system.

    That's what I Love about the android community, you can bet that the devs will have a solution ready faster than any carrier or manufacturer has ever rolled out an update or program, and in addition you know that they will have open communication, keep you informed, no smoke and mirrors.
