    There is no root method for the ota as of yet . You would have to go back to previous version root then install voodoo root keeper found in the market then take the ota and you will regain root
    This thread might be able to help you out some peeps with same issues

    That's funny. Do i need to root and what is root. I like it. If you want to root, instructions are below in my siggy. As far as do you need to, not unless you want to dive in further to the Android operating system. As for what is root, Here's a link that does a good job of explaining: Top 10 Reasons To Root Your Android Phone

    Do you need to root? No. If you are happy with how your device works and don't feel like tinkering too much, then I would say that you're just fine where you are. However if you want to customize your device in ways that the OS or 3rd party apps can't do by default, then you may want to. For example, if you wanted to change the color of your status bar, change your battery icon, change your boot animation.. etc, then you may want to root.

    As far as anything between Gingerbread and ICS... for phones? Not really. There may be a 2.3.7 build, though I'm under the impression that it is for the GSM version only, but at the moment there is Gingerbread or ICS. Technically Honeycomb (3.0) is in between, but it is primarily for tablet devices.
