    I think the acronym is ROM Update Utility or something to that effect.

    In the context of the OTA, it's a file that allows you to revert back to the stock recovery. When you root via the unrevoked tool, it installs an alternate recovery called Clockwork mod, which allows you to flash ROMs, do backups etc. Unfortunately, one of the things Clockwork cannot do is flash the radio. So, RUU'ing removes root and Clockwork and reinstalls the stock recovery.

    Through the stock recovery, you can apply the new 2.0 radio. Then you would re-root via unrevoked tool, get root and clockwork back and then flash the leaked 2.2 ROM. Hope that helps.
