Ok these are your two and only two options:
1) Backup all of your apps with titanium backup then flash a 2.04.605.2 Rom (you will have to do a full wipe or you will get a bootloop) and then use Titanium backup to restore your User Apps + User Data (you cannot mix and match system data at all)
2) Flash a 2.04.60.2 Rom and just restore all of stuff the long way
Im sorry not trying to sound mean or anything but this is the downfall of flashing roms is when there are system updates because it usually requires full wipes and then you gotta do either of the two things i posted above
oh and with any 2.04.605.2 Rom the only kernel you can use at the moment is the bone stock 2.04.605.2 kernel (none of the custom ones until HTC releases the source code)
I personally took the OTA for the firmware only and then flashed back to a 1.15.605.4 Custom Rom and a Custom Kernel
