    Could you go into more detail please?

    What root method are you using? What is your HBOOT? (Vol down and power). Can you get to HBOOT (a more important question)?

    I'm guessing you don't have S-OFF, but could be wrong.

    Depending on your Hboot (did you have unrooted phone on GB?), you should try one of the "Sticky" topics on rooting. Either rooting for dummies or the Gingerbread rooting guide. Or read both, lots of good info in there.

    Go here and it should have all the info and links to get your rooted.

    Yes, you need to unlock nand(get s-off) in order to flash anything on your phone but the OTA from Sprint.
