Ok have a DX2 running 2.2.2 I have purchased Team Black Hats app but don't know how to use it. Can I root with z4 root. Please point me in the right direction I am really confused and the more I read the worse I get. Sorry for not understanding this. I am a noob. Any help greatly appreciated.

I see super user icon but the icons are not the gingerbread icons. Don't know if they should be. And still says running 2.2.2 under phone info.

Rooting your phone won't change your android version. Just gives you root access
