I rooted using Z4, downloaded and ran Bootstrapper and Titanium Pro. I made a backup of stock system and apps. I was going to load rom apex 1.4.1. but decided to wait for OTA Gingerbread. So...I uninstalled Bootstrapper & Titanium. I then unrooted. When I do a system reboot(power & home button) my droid still boots into clockwork. My question is, will this be a problem when I upgrade to OTA Gingerbread?

Yes. You need to reroot and use TErminal Emulator or Root Explorer to remove clockwork. Follow post 2 http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacking-guides/13485-how-use-droid-x-bootstrap.html

Must I uninstall ( Z4root , Droid X boostrap, Droid 2 boostrap ) or simply SBF flash my device in order to return to the stock Froyo 2.2?

If you run the current GB Leak can you update to OTA right from "About Phone > Updates" or do you have to DL and Flash the OTA release?

We won't know until it starts rolling out if being on the leak will affect being able to update or not...We will let everyone know when it hits... :)

I'm waiting for the OTA release before I make the permanent switch to GB. I've installed the GB SBF twice and both times it has caused my phone a lot of issues and made it choppy and slow, so I am done messing with it for now. Liberty 2.0.1 satisfies my needs at the moment. :)

So a few questions: SBF means what? Also, if you want full control, you root, but the concern is that if you OTA into Gingerbread, you may not have a root ability? Is that correct? And if you root into Gingerbread, does that eliminate or protect yourself against OTA?

Thank you, I'm sorry if my questions seem stupid. I feel like I have this kick ass device in my hand but I'm not doing much with it. I do love it thought.

SBF is a process of re-flashing the original Firmware that your phone came with out of the box, it takes you back to factory fresh out of the box clean. That way, you can take OTA updates. The concern is that GB has yet to be rooted POST installation, so if you take the OTA of GB, you might not ever get root access. If you are already on rooted GB, you will not get the update to install.

So...if we take OTA...what's to stop us from SBF'ing back to .340 and reinstalling leaked and rooted GB? Anything?

an updated bootloader would stop us.... but we are discussing the OTA right now here: http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-general-discussion/23666-anyone-get-ota-4-5-588-a.html

The bootloader has NOT changed, I've confirmed it's still 30.04, so you can SBF back to Froyo if you want...

Thanks!

Having a back out option is always nice.
