    I canceled all the updates that the phone was scheduled to get during activation, including the PRL update, in hopes of being able to root the phone. Should i not have canceled these initial updates. If they don't interfere with root, is there anything I can do to reactivate these updates? Thanks.

    Go to Menu, Settings, System Updates and get 'em manually.

    Won't the system updates eliminate root capability?

    A PRL update or Network Profile update won't, no.

    And don't worry about root. The folks behind root will have that sorted out within days if not hours.

    Do you even know what root is? Just because there's not an icon saying you have it doesn't mean it's not there.
