Lol, well at least you know what you want.. but as usual, at least for me anyway, nothing is easy!! I messed up and took the .621 update.. although it fixed some things, the lag was still there, and random memory hog issues...so, I would say it is up to you to decide if it will be worth it to you to root, as you will have to do the complicated way, using Linux to flash to .604 milestone... then from there it's pretty much easy peasy lemon squeezy.. theres plenty of info on that..see these threads..and may the force be with you.

On Second thought I may not root it after all seems like a lot of work.In your honest opinion would you think rooting the latest phones are easier that rooting older phones?

I'm fairly new to this myself.. and have not graduated to another phone either.. I'm due for one though.. I'm not sure on that one.. I imagine they all have their quirks.. just look into the forum under the phone you are thinking about... see what kinda feedback folks are giving.. thats what I plan to do.. check into the bootloader being locked or unlocked... that seems to make stuff easier. I've heard Samsung has phones with unlocked bootloaders.. so I may try one of those. Or the Bionic, or Razor Maxx..
