Currrntly, the op from that thread states that you CAN NOT go back to froyo. Could be a typo as a mod there said you could in one of the posts. Just fyi for those wishing to be able to return.

I believe what you're referring to is an inability to restore a Nandroid backup from Froyo. I think you can still SBF back to Froyo using the standard methods.

I just read it. Best to stay on. 588 for now if you plan on going back. It looks like a different boot loader. Might not be able to sbf back if not same version.

Yes, you are right. I was in a hurry and read "can not go back to froyo." That warning was congruent with a fear I've had that at some point a GB version would come back that would NOT let us return if we wanted. So, I read fast and figured the time had come. I was in a hurry and reading while in a store. Now that I reread, it clearly is referring to nand restores which has been the case with all the GB leaks.

Ignore me :)

....That warning was congruent with a fear I've had that at some point a GB version would come back that would NOT let us return if we wanted.

Spodoc this is a valid concern (not for this leak, but the full OTA), which is why we are trying to warn folks not jump too quickly on the OTA Gingerbread when it begins:

1. We have no idea if they will update the bootloader version, like to 30.05. If they do, there will be no way back to Froyo..

2. We have no idea if the Gingerbreak hack will root the OTA Gingerbread until the devs get a look at it and test it.

The TBH Twitter feed said "bug fixes, there were 10 bugs that bothered me, all fixed..larger pic in phone app when rec. call, u will have to find rest"

So there may be some minor improvements? I've been running .591 all day and I don't see any big changes.

I think it is reasonable to expect that with the ota the bootloader will be advanced and that root via current methods will not be possible. That's just based on past moto actions. No reason to expect differently. I just thought it had come early :)

Correct, multiple folks have noted a bootloop ensuing when trying to use the CRT-off animation with the new .591 GB build..

One reason I went back to .588...The other was to get Liberty going again..

I installed the odexed version over .588 odexed, but I'm stick at the red eye for a while now. I did not do a data wipe and would really prefer not to, but I do have a titanium backup if I have to.

Any other ideas?

Nevermind. 2nd reboot and I'm in!

ok this is a noob question. if you flashed gb .588, when the ota update comes out will it automatically cancel out your root and return you to the most recent gb that has came out? also where can i find the .588 leak?

When the OTA comes out, if you're on a leaked gingerbread build, you can't receive OTA updates. You can only receive the OTA via froyo. And as for the leak, here's the link: http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/gingerbread-development-hacking/24642-gingerbread-2-3-3-4-5-588-successful-installation-guide.html

Wasnt .588 the official GB ota for the DX? If so whats up with this .591? I'm confused as hell with all these releases? When is VZW sending out the official OTA?

I have the TBH app and I saw this in there: "Full Gingerbread (2.3.3) Rooted (Blur Version 4.5.591) - Deodexed Fully (DROIDX)"

In liberty toolbox there's a full version that you would use if you're coming from froyo. And then they have one to use if you're already on gb.

I had the issue of busybox not installing, including attempts of installing all of the older versions. I'm sticking with 588 for now, though I would like to note that the kernel in 591 seemed to make the DX a lot snappier. On 588 I have to OC to 1150mhz with performance gov to get the same "feeling" as 591 without overclocking. I wish busybox wasn't such pita, I want to see what 591 is like oc'd.

Thanks for the info. That's my only gripe with GB .588. I don't know if I will bother switching to .591 in that case.


That's probably not a bug.

Then what is it? Any other setting on the phone stays where I last put it no matter how many times the thing gets rebooted or has the battery pulled. And the resolution on WS is only 6mp. So why would it automatically revert to a lower mp rating than max at 8mp? I understand that the WS format is better for viewing on smartphones in landscape mode and on widescreen computer monitors, but shouldn't I be able to make that choice, especially on a rooted phone? And root should make absolutely no difference with this setting.

2. LED notifications from Handcent, dont' work, only stock LED notifications on new texts works.

SBFed back to Froyo. Then went to Liberty, then back to Froyo rooted. Couldn't deal with gmail not sending emails. Didn't care for the mods in Liberty, but like the tweaks. Will go back to 588 once I get some free time. Getting better at SBF and found a great comment when you get the 007 error when running RSD. Oh why does it work one time and not the next.... drat you 0 or 1

They pulled a fast one on us with the GB Stock Recovery. To get into it from the Home+Power boot, press both volume keys at the same time. Volume keys are still up and down, but power is now select (instead of camera)

Okay at this point I am pissed. I have tried getting on gb five times now. The main problem I am having is the first zip file keeps saying there is an error and it did not install. For a second I thought that was fine but now I don't know what to do. I tried downloading the file from all tree mirrors and I keep getting the same error from the first zip. I am doing the sbf, using the d2 bootstrap, wiping factory reset, cache, dalvick and batt stats. Why wont this install correctly? Is there another way of getting ginger bread from froyo?

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

You could never do a clockwork restore back to froyo. It has to be an sbf or monster zip...although an sbf would be the better choice as you'll have to sbf to do gingerbread if you used the monster zip anyway.

None of the versions come rooted. You have to use Gingerbreak for that..

If you want to be non-rooted why not wait fir the OTA rumored to be coming next week? Because you will have to SBF back to Froyo to get it, save ya some trouble..

Will the OTA install over 588? I'm thinking not but am unsure (reading too many forums )....I will have to sbf back to froyo anyway right? to get the 591? or whichever is the newer version...


or will I be able to just put it right over the 588 when it arrives? via recovery

If you have .588, it is extremely unlikely that you will be given the official OTA update. I don't know how things went with previous leaked OTAs (I'm sure there are some).

If you have .588, you just flash .591 in clockwork. No need to SBF. Wipe/clear data to ensure good flash, but it is not necessary to do so. Make sure to make backups before you do anything.

Then you need to get GingerBreak (I suggest version 1.2) to root, then install either Droid 2 Bootstrap (or Droid X Bootstrap and remember to disable USB Debugging every time you want to use it - I prefer Droid 2 Bootstrap for this reason). Then when you run D2 Bootstrap, you click the buttons in order from top to bottom. Then you can install the .591 file from your SD card.

Yes...that's how I got to 588....I want to stay non-rooted ...so just do it the same way to get to 591 or newer version when it comes out? just use Gingerbreak if you want root...right ? otherwise everything will be OK.. theoretically

Wait a minute, there is an update.zip for gingerbread? Can someone direct me to that link? I just want to get on gingerbread so I can get the new Apex so rooting it won't be a problem since I already downloaded gingerbreak and d2 bootstrap.

docholliday, you'll have to root to get to .591. Use Gingerbreak for that. Then go to clockwork and install the .591 file. When you do, .591 will come unrooted. Which is what you stated you wanted. Rooting is just a means to the end.

syntaxprime, the leaked .588 OTA file was an extracted GB update that got leaked. You can rename that file to 'update.zip' and use stock recovery to install it. That'll bring you to .588 unrooted. Then you can use Gingerbreak to root and install Apex from there. Google ".588 leaked OTA" or something like that, I'm sure you'll find links to it.

So...let me get this straight...there is no UPDATE.ZIP that I can use in stock recovery right now for .591 to install over the .588 I am running now that I installed via update.zip in stock recovery...I would have to root then un-root...wow...complicated..( the process and my post)

Adding to the question above if anyone can answer:

There is a stock 4.5.595 that must be installed to get to the Verizon OTA of 4.5.596. My question, can I simply drag the STOCK 4.5.595 to the SD card the same way I did with the 4.5.588 and simply update? I am computer savvy but I don't understand "bootstrap", "Clockwork" and all that. I want to simply go from .588 to .595 then get the OTA from Verizon when released.

Just out of curiosity, how can someone NOT get the "final" .596 OTA from a stock .588? Verizon obviously released it out to people like HarleyDude as a test.... What are the people who received it but don't have any clue that you can root/update and etc going to do? Or is Verizon just going to A) leave them all on .588 or B) Handle the complaints from the limited people who got the .588 lol.

Just curious...
Myself, I'm on the 3-part .588 rooted and intend to SBF back to 2.2 and then take the OTA. I don't understand why people are so against SBFing, especially (for some reason) the people over at MDW lol.

The folks that were given the OTA .588 were also just upgraded to .591 then to .595 and given instructions on what to do. From there they will receive the official final OTA Gingerbread...

Ah, I hadn't heard that. I assume then that that's how/why there's a new stock, odex, deodex leak again, all based on someone uploading their new 595 OTA update they received. Neat.

Well, in my personal quest to stay as "natural" as possible on GB, I suppose I could flash the original 595 and then get the OTA rather than going back to 2.2
Are the posts I'm reading about the 595 stock zip being broken/trash true? Think I've read some saying it fails and you gotta SBF back to 2.2 anyway.

So is the .591 file available for us stuck in .588?

I'm not rooted, running the 588 stock "update.zip" file. I'm looking for the easiest way to get to .595 and then sit and wait for the OTA to happen.

I've already downloaded the stock 595 file, but I've been told I can't go from 588 to 595 directly. I have to go to 591 first, then to 595.

Sit tight while P3 fixes the stock 595 file. The original one is broken. It should be fixed soon. If the stock 595 file is similar to stock 588 then it should be signed and flashable in stock backup. If for some reason it's not, then you either need to root your 588 so you can flash to 595 OR SBF back to Froyo and get the OTA naturally. Or you could SBF to Froyo, root, flash to 595 stock.

Yeah, I saw that the 595 stock file was messed up.

I have to go from 588 to 591 to 595, can't skip right to 595.

Once you are at 595, it's a waiting game for the official OTA to be pushed.

No, if you root your 588 you should be able to go to 595. If the stock 595 is signed then you may just be able to go to 595 by just flashing it in stock recovery.

Not rooted, fully stock 588 right now.

Going to 591, then going to 595, then sitting tight until the OTA pushes thru.

Seems like 591 is an extra step but to each his own. I suppose that IS how Verizon pushed it out to some people so I guess it makes sense.
