    Biggest benefit right now will be the use of apps that require root, such as wireless tethering. Once we have a working recovery and/or sbf (which I hear is coming soon), we can begin to remove the bloatware (skype, city ID, etc).

    Untrue. Rooting only gives you extra privileges; it doesn't make any real system changes on its own.

    Being new to Android, is there a roll-back procedure to the rooting if, for some reason, we didn't want it rooted anymore?
