    You can just do it now, but remember not to do OTA once rooted... It shouldn't take the devs very long to provide a update method for us root users

    yeah just do it now. even after the OTA (which may or may not come out on the 30th) you are probably going ot have to downgrade and root, then upgrade. might as well do it now. run a rooted froyo ROM, or jump straight to GB like i did. liquid gingersense is pretty sweet and seems issue free to me after the 6 or so hours i have played with it.

    then once the OTA comes out, we are going to see a bunch of really stable GB roms.

    dont think so.
    i used this "one click" method the other day and it worked great. very simple and fairly "freak out" free :)
    [Auto] Root and Unroot (Windows)**Updated**5/20** w/MR1 update - Android Forums

    there are other methods using ADB and manually pushing the files, but this "one click" does the same thing, it just does it for you and walks you through the steps.

    Does the Auto Root work on all firmware versions or only those below 1.12? I'm currently on 1.13.605.7
