Yeah, I did that with my Droid X when I first got it... I waited a little while before rooting it, but I had to have my root fix .

The D3 GB root method works fine for the Bionic (don't know if you've been following that stuff or not). I applied it manually via adb to my DX a week or so back after the newest .605 update scragged our root. So, you can easily root and you know you'll be careful in making scary changes to your phone. There is also a new whole phone restore (FXZ for the Bionic vs. the .SBF for the Droid X), so you can always recover from a soft-bricking. Seems like hardbricking is becoming pretty rare these days.

I'm sure you'll provide a sane, calm, and wizened hand over at the Bionic threads .
