I haven't tried it, but I'm quite certain that if you don't unroot, you will not be able to install the update. That was the case for me for the previous update--after downloading the update, it would freeze while trying to install the update.
You should be able to root again after installing the update. Or you can flash your Evo with a Gingerbread-based mod.
