Question Rooted users: Results After Installing Maintenance Update?

As reported here and on SU, the maintenance update from Sprint/HTC is being rolled out over the air. Can people with Root and/or a custom ROM tell us what happens if you update? I doubt you'll loose root but I'm just curious and I'm sure other are too.

This is only for rooted users. No need to post if the update isn't available to you yet. IF it works for you and you're rooted/rom'ed, post.

Root: Yes or No
ROM: Tell us which
Reuslts: Still rooted, working fine?

As for me, the update isn't available yet but I want to know what I'm getting in to before I allow it.

EDIT: So far it looks like the update won't even install for rooted users - Recovery image gets in the way...
EDIT2: freshlyill has provided a direct download of the update pkg file in post #7
EDIT3: This update definitely cannot be made on rooted Heros but doesn't hurt the phone if you try. No risk.
EDIT4: UPDATE: SUCCESS! thecodemonk has confirmed that root is still available on page 4. Process: Use stock RUU to bring it back to stock, download and apply update, re-root like normal!
EDIT5: Satinkzo has also confirmed that the above works. Now, somebody ROM this sucker up

I cannot get it to install on rooted phone. Looks like the recovery image or something gets in the way.

DONATE TO ME
freshlyill (from fresh rom) got the update and also said it seemed to error out because of the recovery image. But he rebooted again and it appeared to work. He still has root but has no signs that the update applied. Still getting wake lock on stock messaging app.

No firmware update available for my phone yet.

Same here, but using Fresh ROM

@Fresh: how did you get the update to take?
