Wiping all data is normal for the rooting process. In order to root, you actually have to downgrade to an older RUU before updating to a newer ROM.
If he has S-OFF, and root-access works (i.e., you can get write access to /system via Root Explorer or other file manager, Titanium Backup works, etc.) then he has nothing to worry about. It's rooted and he can enjoy all of the fruits of the TB development scene. MIUI isn't ready for the Thunderbolt yet, but there's a full list of available ROMs here that he can choose from.
If he doesn't have S-OFF he needs to follow the instructions exactly as they're written in the permaroot thread here.
