There's one thing you should know if you are possibly interested in rooting in future. Something that gives you more options, and makes some tasks easier, is being S-Off. This turns off some internal security settings, but in the process means that you can install new ROMs more easily, remove the "tampered" flag, install/remove system apps while running Android. Nothing essential, but something that some of us like to have.
At this moment in time you can do this for hboot 1.44 (which you had at the time of post #7) but not for later versions. So if you still have 1.44 (RUUs can change that) you should decide whether you might want this before accepting an OTA update, as that will probably remove the option.
No obligation, you can root without, just thought I'd mention it.
