Mad data\ factory reset on rooted clock work

I have an evo that is on clock work and i am in the bootloader recovery options(i want to do a factory reset) if i select data/factory reset will it take off my root.

Also if i do reset does it downgrade me from 2.2?????

yea i know there are some threads like this but im talking about bootloader options on clock work which there is no thread i could find

Short answer is no....If you do a full data wipe, you will not lose root, nand access (s-off), or your custom recovery. You also will not be downgraded from 2.2.

What exactly do you want your end result to be? Wiping data (which is better to do from recovery rather than the bootloader while rooted) will only wipe out apps, app data, and settings. If you're on a custom ROM, you'll still have that custom ROM. As frenchy said, you won't lose recovery or s-off. So, is that what you want, or are you trying to do something else?

You can try it, then. It won't remove root. When did that start, exactly? Have you changed anything recently between when it worked (if ever) and didn't? There are also a lot of other things you can do to make it work again, some drastic, some not. Try that first.
