Just verifying that at least at this time, it seems that the regular Cupcake 
update being pushed down by T-Mobile removes all access to root?

If so, I assume that gain access to root would require either reflashing to an 
earlier "non-cupcake" version or one of the modified images floating around.

I installed the T-Mobile cupcake update without root to begin with.
Just put it on the SD card, name it '' and reboot, holding
down the home button.  Super easy.

The update is available here, among other places:
