In Jellybean you can disable apps so they never run, don't need root for that. And I ain't removing any bloat(just disabling), because I've heard the bloat needs to be intact to get future updates.

So again, any downsides to rooting? If I root and don't remove bloat will my phone still be upgradable and not too 'tweaked'?

Its trivially simplistic to remove root, in fact once you are more comfortable with it, you will not want to take updates ota anymore. There is more risk in getting bricked that way(ota) because you don't have custom recoveries and backups etc.

If you just freeze bloat you can unfreeze it before the update. And yes if you only root you can still get updates.

I'm trying to go through the last few steps to get Jelly Bean but not root. When I boot into recovery and select update from sd card, recovery gives me an error that it failed to mount sd card. Any idea why?

Do you have a SD card installed in the phone? Is it formatted fat32 or something else? Formatting the card within the phone is the best way to ensure compatibility.

Updated with this leak! Everything went well... got impatient, but it seems like it will be the same version as the official update coming this week.

So far so good, everything seems to be working well, but volumes (ringtones, notifications, etc) seem to be a bit lower than they were in ICS... anyone else notice that?

Everything Worked just as described.

Curious though if this will be the same as the OTA.

Lots of people are saying they have heard/read that this is the official OTA.

They were too loud in ICS on the lowest settings. Minimum volume for ringer settings is now quiet how it should be!
