    As far as I know... YES! My friends had 2.1 update to 2.2 and root will not work....so we had to wait until the root for 2.2 came out to get all his previous apps working again..

    If you are rooted with a rom it won't update anyway. We rom/themers will be getting the updates through our rom devs :) :)
