The whole goal of having full root is so you can flash custom roms and have stuff like wifi tether for free! If you flash OTA, then you screw that up.
If you already have root, you should know that you never never never flash the OTA's, as you will lose root and it's quite possible the stock updates could eventually get so locked down that it will either take forever to find a new root method or you could be SOL.
Ok..... on that note, xda already has the stock with root update ROMs available.....this means you don't lose root and still have your update....problem solved.
If you don't know how to flash a rom, I suggest you look around on here for the answer.US Cellular Samsung GS3
Rooted and Ready!

you do not need to unroot to install it. I did it and updated fine.
Still shows superuser on the phone though and wireless tethering and clockwork and all that tho.
I tried wireless tethering and wont connect, so I assume it broke the root as it should and just left the software traces on there. I look in superuser and no longer has wireless tether as accepted

I have a question.. If your evo is rooted with Unrevoked 3.. and you accept the OTA update tomorrow for froyo, thus breaking your root. Is your phone now basically considered stock? At this point, can you start from STEP 1 of a full rooting method when one becomes available for this new version? Or is the phone going to be in some weird limbo state that would require additional steps to rooting it using a different root method than unrevoked?

It looks like the leaked manual .3 version would install for people who had rooted with Unrevoked3 and they lost root.
It looks like the OTA .6 version will fail during install on any rooted devices and brings up a yellow triangle. Unrevoked3 or other methods.
Can anyone confirm my observations from reading all the current threads?

Same issue here.
Using unrevoked 3 and I get 30% into the process and get the Triangle of sadness.
Waited well over 20min to see if it would progress, but it didn't.
Does anyone know how to undo unrevoked 3 or if it is even possible?
Has anyone done a factory reset to see if that will fix the issue?

That being said, I highly recommend you wait until the Unrevoked team comes out with a version of 2.2 with full root.

OTA 2.2 is not working for unrevoked3. Triangle of sadness lol I keep getting it too. No froyo for me until unrevoked does something. I am not going to wipe my phone and start over. I will give them a few days or weeks. I checked XDA and this seems to be a problem with all the phones with unrevoked3
