If people want to root, or jailbreak, or whatever, that's peachy but it's not always going to be pots of gold and unicorns and the responsibility for dealing with that doesn't fall on other people. IMO.
Rooting your phone does nothing more than take off the lock that the carrier puts on there preventing you from uninstalling their garbage (Sprint's Nascar app & Sprint Zone come to mind, among others...).
A rooted phone is virtually identical to a non-rooted phone.
A phone with a custom ROM, however, is not. That's where you get the pot of gold and unicorns!
I'm running a rooted EVO running a custom ROM (CM7.2) and don't have the blurry text issue. I've not gotten an official update from Sprint EVER and have never had an issue with an app on my phone. Official updates either fix bugs in the carrier's changes to the OS or update the OS to the latest version (that they are willing to let you have). They do not typically fix incompatibilities with 3rd party apps.
My money says that the blurry text is a device-specific issue, having nothing to do with rooted vs non-rooted.
