I'm confused.... If you're running Gingerbread (Android 2.3.x) now then your handset must already be rooted as HTC haven't released GB for the Desire Z yet, therefore it must be via a third-party ROM.

Can you clarify the currently-installed firmware and whether the handset is currently rooted?

You will have to downgrade the firmware to 1.34.xxx.x in order to root. There's a comprehensive guide to the procedure here.
