Rooting Questions

view full story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I have a few naive questions Do I have to do the OEM unlock to root the device? I would prefer not to wipe it. Assuming I don't hard brick the device, can I go back to stock for warranty work? Does rooting the device mean I can't get OTA updates from Google? For now I just want to run the stock kernel/rom and get updates. I just want root to run titanium and certain other apps that require root. I've seen a thread that suggest that the play store (market) doesn't work on rooted devices. Is that true? (HowTos)
