There will probably be an exploit to root in the future, so I'm not worried about it too much. I'm thinking of holding off on JB for the Bionic though, as there are a lot of testers claiming the version being pushed out (build 22) tested terribly. They had a build 23, which tested very well, but people are trying to figure out if build 22 removed the issue that caused it to not work properly. The rumor floating around is that build 22 had Verizon's Isis (similar to Google Wallet), which has NFC capability and other functions that the Bionic doesn't have. People that tested both said that build 23 doesn't have Isis, while 22 does, so I'm waiting to see if it's buggy or not.

Although I'm very tempted to just do the upgrade and see for myself.
