So now I'm confused. Update or not? Then flash? Or flash then update?
No problem, I don't mind.
And yes it will take away root access. But depending on whether or not you do have clockwork installed the update may fail. I am not sure what exactly you have done so I don't know what to tell you to expect if you try.
