Question kies/nps - updating firmware (?)

Hi,

Question re: Kies/NPS and firmware from a noob.

My Galaxy Portal on 3 Mobile is as follows:

2.1-update1
i570EXXJC1
2.6.29 root@SES611 #2
ECLAIR.XXJCD

At some stage when I have more time, I will root the phone (as per Beerkan's guide). (How long does it take btw?)

Before this however, will the Kies (or NPS) software allow me to upgrade the phone 'officially' to a higher/better/faster (baseband?) version ?

I've been browsing these forums since I got the phone in June and following most of Beerkan's posts, and I get the impression that there are upgrades I can do to my without having to root. Is this correct?

Apologies if I've got the wrong of the stick ....

Thanks

John
