    You don't lose a thing! In fact, you gain the ability to do more stuff! su, tethering, apps that require root access, ex:lamppu, wireless tether, titanium backup, shootme, and of course the ability to flash roms which comes later. and it's reversable.

    It takes 15 minutes if you get lucky. As of now I am on my third day of unsuccessful root attempts. Good luck on your root though when you do get the phone.
