I ask because I just got the prime and have not updated to the .21 yet.

Doesnt seem like I would miss a ton. Just curious..

Are you kidding you miss a ton. Swipe pad, gesturecontrol, overclocking up to 1.8 ghz, cornerstone, act.

Not to mention Asus sometime screws up their Roms and you made have random reboots.

I would root it, if I could (having .21).
Mainly because my phone only supports ad-hoc tethering and I now am not able to tether at all with my prime

I also would like to have the ability of titanium backups and gestures.

Hope somebody finds a new way for rooting soon

Only way to get root on .21 is to unlock the boot loader and install CWM- flash a custom ROM and that will give you root.. but unfortunately no way to just root .21

I'm running mine completely stock and without any problems so far. I may be missing things, but since I don't know what they are, it doesn't really matter. My Prime does everything I need it to.

Thats what pessimists say.
I still hope somebody finds another way.
No software is without bugs.

I am running stock. I have been using this thing pretty much everyday for 3 months now and I have yet to have a need to root. I bought the keyboard/mouse which is great and I sold my windows laptop on ebay. With the USB port on the side of the keyboard, its amazing that crap you plug into that it recognizes. I still have my desktop for gaming, web design, photoshop etc.

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on too much.

I rooted my TF101 and slapped custom roms all over the place. A bit scared to do so on my Prime.. Seems the risk is a lot higher..

Oh i want to root it with a passion.... titanium backup, linux, custom stuffs up the wazoo.... only problem is .21 cant be rooted without rootkeeper. If you DO update, i suggest you root, use rootkeeper, then update. you will miss it later.

Running stock but rooted mainly so I can use titanium back up and restore game apps with data from my Acer a100 so I can play them where I left off.

Have my prime rooted. I've had a rooted AND unlocked Android device ever since the HTC G1. I would love to be able to unlock my Prime and slap the best ROM on it but I'm too afraid of voiding warranty. After my 1yr though... you better believe I'm unlocking. There is just no match in performance when it comes to custom vs stock.

I do. Unrooted on 9.4.2.21.
I run my own on nexus prime but we have it easy over there, compared to other devices.
Still, rooting the prime still has at least one thing the user needs to remember after rooting process itself: when you root, either because you need to keep warranty or because you want to tweak the device, you need to make sure that everything you change on a stock rom, you need to put it back before running OTA.
I will unlock my tfp, surely, and there's already a few things i want to try, but i'm still thinking about asus RMA. I don't really want to loose track of my device, but light bleed seems to stand out even more when you know its there, even if it's just a bit.
I have not experienced any "random" reboot, but i believe the stock rom doesn't seem to do justice to Tegra3 - in fact, ics 4.0.3 was way faster in my phone.
