im guessing they patched the exploit and will have to wait for a new one if you went back to locked, or s-on status.

Never S-OFF'd or unlocked it.
Never perm-rooted it. Didn't even have custom recovery.

It was 100%, just rooted. It is a work-only phone so I am not overly concerned with it. But it would still be nice to be able to.

i guess i should say that HTC phones seem to be easier to root, well from the outside looking in that is. i have no clue how hard it really is to find an exploit.

newest RUU today
FLASH: Just now, I can confirm that after taking the 5-28-2014 update (4.10.605.3) Weaksauce 1.01 can't any longer attain root.

And this is why I always tell people that if they want to stay rooted or unlock in the future that they shouldn't take any OTAs.

Nah, just a learning exercise!!
Was locked and S-0ff and took the 0TA to check it out. Including Weaksauce.
Easily flashed an unencrypted older RUU, then unlocked the bootloader with Scotty's recipe posted earlier.
Made firmware newest with SantoD's no-boot firmware and we're back at the races!
