Default Motochopper? Anyone have issues?

Has anyone had any issues with using Motochopper to root this device after the last OTA update? Also, if I don't do anything but root, can the device still take OTA updates?

There seems to be some third-party kernels ready for this device. If I backup the device's kernel using a command like this...

dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/stockkernel.img

Should I be able to simply use this command to write a third-party kernel to the phone?

dd if=/sdcard/thirdpartykernel.lok of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot

I'm trying not to have to flash a recovery to the phone and keep the phone as close to being able to be unrooted as possible. Or is this even necessary now that we have stock ROM dumps that are able to be loaded via ODIN?

I'm just trying to do some research into all of this before I go take the plunge into the world of rooting on this device.
