At some point, Sprint's supposed to be updating this thing to Gingerbread. If that happens, what are my options? If I were to accept an OTA update, would it 1) brick the phone, 2) update properly, but unroot it, or 3) update properly with no impact on the root? I'm guessing #2, but just wanted to make sure I understand it in case it pops up and asks someday.
Since you're still running the original stock ROM, you shouldn't have any issues beyond having to re-root your phone. Many custom ROMs have blocked OTAs by default (CM did this in a late 5.x or early 6.x version), so that you don't even see them.
If you plan to keep the Sprint ROM, I would wait to update until there is a confirmed root process. Personally, I would have gone to a custom ROM just to get to GB.
