You might get partial root with no system write capability or you could loose root. You will NOT however retain full root access.

As I remember I've downloaded this torrent (NUT's) and it was very slow - about 20kb/s, so just wait patiently

I don't think anyone has successfully kept root to 290. The update will fail or root will be lost.
