    So I am pretty sure I was able to update and keep root. I say pretty sure because I am a novice and my only way to confirm was opening Wifi tether and TI Backup (which I just downloaded)both opened with the SU permissions Y/N screen and with a Y did their thing. No Internet with Wifi Tether though. Not sure if this is a root thing or an app in need of an update.

    So What I did was got these guys here:

    HTC OTA Froyo 2.2, *FINAL*, build 3.36.651.6 (Rooted) Odexed - xda-developers

    1:I first put the 4g zip on my SD. I dragged it over to the top level. ejected USB let it "format SD" then turned off the phone. Powered it up W/ volume down giving boot menu.

    1a:In the white screen Volume down to Recovery. Hit Power button.

    2: In the Black ClockworkMod screen volume down to install zip from SD, Select this. it will bring up a new set of options.
    3:Volume down to Choose zip from SD, power button to select.
    4:volume down through all the no's to
    Yes - Install______.zip (this zip will be either the 4g, or radio one) hit the power button to select.
    5:Let it run you will see some text over the android jumping out of the box. Then at the bottom of text it will say reboot.
    6: Volume button to the option to go back a menu (or main menu I forgot to write it down)
    7: toggle volume to Reboot and tap the power button to select.

    the Phone will do its normal power up. Load onto your SD the other radio/4g zip. Repeat the previous steps.

    once this is done Simply rename that long Froyo file name to update. remember that if you type .zip (w/ extensions hidden) it will repeat it on the card and not work.

    This time at step 2 just select load/install update.zip

    As far as I can tell I still have root. I am unable to get Wifi tether to access internet, but TI backup seems to work. And both apps presented me with the "superuser permission?" Y/N screen.

    Your post is confusing. Unrevoked3 is a simple form of Root. The Froyo 2.2 you updated is a full root (says so right on the file). So no you don't have unrevoked but yes it is fully rooted.

    You are correct. Since you were already rooted on 1.47 with unrevoked 3 and loaded a rooted version of 3.26 using ClockworkMod, you are still rooted.

    You can get wifi working since you are rooted by flashing a kernel mod by netarchy-toastmod.

    Well happy day! And thanks for being patient with a newbie. I will hunt that kernel down now. I feel a bit like a dunce then, both for the post and also for probably erroneously factory resetting all my goods away. I guess this will be chalked up to the learning curve of Android. I have to admit this is all still a bit more fun than waiting for the next big update on my old iPhone.
