    Can anyone tell me if I can go back to stock after root? What breaks when I root now, some are saying GPS breaks. Should I wait for one click does anyone see a one click root unroot coming later or is Odin and updating with an exploitable kernel the only way? Sorry for all the questions just have to know from the gurus

    Thanks,

    One click's do not work with gingerbread, the exploit has been fixed. It will be a while before we get anything similar to one clicks.

    Nothing breaks by rooting that isn't already broken in stock; i.e. loss of signal bug. By rooting all you are doing is switching the stock recovery kernel out for a custom one "clockworkmod recovery" that allows you to back up/restore/install via zip files. With that ability to install via zips you can flash the superuser app and its associated files. There for the only thing that has changed is your recovery and nothing should break; barring any user error of course.

    As for returning to stock it isn't that simple, yet. Right now it consists of flashing a stock kernel via odin that breaks root. It is likely when we get an update or sprint stores get the appropriate odin files, those will be leaked, and we will have the odin method to return to 100% stock.

    Thanks for the info.. Will this break future updates from spint? I see that the loss signal has a fix? and might not just be related to the root.. Do you know if the GPS is broke? Just getting the logistics before I root. I have everything ready to go however want to make sure I don't get a surprise that I am stuck with

    yes you will lose ability to update from sprint, but there are always ROM updates from developers which are usually always better =D rooting will not be a regret, just be cautious when flashing or experimenting and your experience should be great!
