Awhhhhh's, crap. That's what I was afraid of. Well, good to know, I googled the heck out of it and haven't had any luck finding any info about any patches having broken rooting.
No problem with downgrading anyway, since none of the OTA patches have fixed any significant issues - only fixed the home wallpaper alignment when switching orientation modes. I've got a falcon on mine and when I'm on the center screen, he's perfectly centered on the screen, but if I switch to landscape and back the picture would be off to one side until I slide screens, kinda annoying. Now that's fixed, but everything else is still broken, hence it's time to take matters into my own hands
edit: HAH! Awesome! Didn't even need to downgrade or anything! "Woot! Your device is rooted!" - happiness! Thanks for the pointer
