    So from what i gather the unrooting changes the stock firmware or w/e and allows superuser permissions.

    My question is if i root my phone to remove the AT&T bloatware installed and then unroot my phone, do i get to keep the changes? And do i run the risk of bricking my phone or have it red-flagged if or rather when in the future AT&T/Samsung updates come with froyo and all the other good stuff?

    Sorry if this has been asked, i did a quick search and didn't find anything.

    It doesn't change any firmware. It just adds an app that gives you the option for root/superuser access to the phone. It can be easily removed. I swapped out my release day phone today after unrooting with no problems. When I removed the AT&T bloatware I made sure to rename the app files. I renamed them back today before returning the phone.

    Oh okay, i must have misunderstood or misread.

    Just for clarification then, will my phone be able to accept AT&T/Samsung updates even if it's rooted?

    From what Ive read, you can accept OTA updates, but it will unroot your phone. So you will have to wait for someone to re-root the phone to use all of the features/programs of rooting. Generally it seems that once the update is released, devs will extract that and make it available in a form that wont unroot your phone.

    My question is.....after I root my phone(which I did, took 15 secs' tops!!) and the froyo 2.2 update comes OTA, will the at&t bloatware apps I uninstalled with Titanium Backup show back up?
