Default [Q] lost root access with F/W 2.3.3 (KG2)- help with telus fascinate SGH-T959D

my telus fascinate SGH-T959D was update to F/w 2.3.3 by mistake
the phones "standard functions" work, but i lost root access and all the desktop icons disappeared. All the apps still appear to be installed, but those that need root are broken.

FW 2.3.3
Baseband T959TLK62
Kernel 2.6.35.7-sj0829.kwon@sep-08 #2
Build number Gingerbread.LK62

Is there a root app for F/W 2.3.3?
The ones i used in the past don't work with 2.3.3
if there is a 2.3.3 root app, can someone please post a link?

if not, how can I get back to the pre 2.3.3 version?
which version should i install so that i can still root the device.
i'm sure that there is posting of the correct stock files to use

At this time, i can't even run the Titanium Backup as it needs root also. thus i can't restore (;

any tips /suggestion would be useful

i do not see any posts for telus fascinate SGH-T959D with 2.3.3
thank you

walter
