For exemple, I rooted my phone only 2 weeks ago more than 7 months after I bought it. While when I had my HTC Touch, I flash my first ROM within the first week.
I'm fine with stock at the moment, however, I did wanted to upgrade my Kernel to something better with which I could implement an ext4 filesystem. I flashed SpeedMod K13e last friday, implemented the new filesystem and enjoy the new speed my phone was giving me.
My question to you, because I upgraded my filesystem to ext4, will I have to revert back to RFS when android gingerbread will be available through Kies before I upgrade?
Absolutely, since the update will overwrite your kernel with the stock GB kernel which will not support Ext4.
Kies should recognize your phone and provide an update with the lagfix and kernel in place as long as the PDA/Modem and CSC are what it expect to see (that is, stock for your carrier). However, before updating, go into recovery and disable lagfix.
