I rooted my phone using toast method and no OTA. Once I was very comfortable w/ the process I decided to root my wife's phone. But first, just to see what would happen, I use unrevoked and did the OTA. I had several issues trying to get things to work correctly. I downgraded and everything went smoothly. I may not be necessary, but it does make it easy.

I had trouble, but it may have been because I did the unrevoked method too. My issues came when I had to get into recovery mode. Might not be an issue now w/ the Auto Recovery mode that is available.

I haven't done pros/cons, but I've noticed several people in different threads that run across problems when the phone is rooted, but their rom is not.
Doing all the steps correctly is actually very easy. I made a tutorial and youtube videos of each step.

think there is an apk for that...i was doing some research...and believe it some of the custom ROMs have that included.

Its ApptoSD (i think) I read about the partition as well, but I'm not so sure it needs to be partitioned before installing apps ON TO the SD card.
