Okay, so I've been constantly checking for the official OTA on my X since the 13th and I'm done waiting. I want to update my X to the lastest GB leak WITH it still being rooted. I'm still on the official Froyo and it's rooted but with no rom changes or anything. Can some please tell me EXACTLY how to update it to the latest GB leak WITH it still having root access.? Major please and thank yous to anyone who can help :)

You need to root it with Gingerbreak, just like you did with Z4root for Froyo...

I'm going to go ahead and move this over to the Gingerbread subforum for you...

A couple of questions:

1) Will applying this update wipe my phone? Specifically, will I keep things like my text messages?

2) Regarding this Droid2 bootstrap...so basically, they're saying to use the one for Droid 2 not Droid X. So basically this lets me back up my phone, text message, contacts, etc, and restore it if something goes wrong? (Sorry if this is n00bish, I haven't gone beyond using z4root.)

Follow the directions closely and make sure you got a full download and it wasn't cut off early...

1. Yes you need to wipe your phone... get the app sms backup and restore to save your texts

2. Yes it's the droid 2 version. You can use it to make full backups of your phones current state. Everything. It's also used to install ROMs like the gb Rom your going to install
