Default Will ICS OS Upgrade remove rooting

I have samsung captivate glide with android with OS 2.3.6 (gingerbread?). I've been a unix/linux guy for a few decades but am new to phone android OS. I am wondering if I root this phone and then upgrade soon to ICS will my rooting prevent upgrade or might I need to do the rooting again.

Perhaps it's best to just wait a bit, upgrade to ICS and then root.

Thanks for ideas,
Tom Kosvic

if your currently rooted, it wont effect your upgrade to ics. BUT upgrading WILL take your root away. but there should be a way to root it on ics..
my question is if I upgrade to ics on a unlcoked phone will it become network locked again?

I just upgraded then rooted.

Rooting ICS was fairly straight forward for me. I used Odin to install CWMR. Then used CMWR to install the appropriate zip from here Superuser

Whole thing took maybe 15 minutes.

Usual disclaimer: If you break your phone it is your problem. This is just a rough account of what I did. Your results may vary.

Unlike with the first ICS upgrade that was pulled, I haven't noticed any bugs yet. The main advantage I see is the option to encrypt the /data partition.

Mine is unlocked by code. I purchased the phone locked to AT&T and then purchased the unlock code from someone several months ago. It remained unlocked when I upgraded. Has a T-mobile SIM in it right now.

As an FYI...I had my phone unlocked by code when it had Gingerbread. Updating to ICS did not remove the unlock...my phone is stock and not rooted.
