I have been doing some research into the option of rooting my dx2 to get more out of it... mainly to solve memory issues. Everything I have seen for rooting instructions includes use of a computer which I do not often have access to. Is there a way I could root and then be able to flash roms to the phone without a computer? Also are roms device specific or will any rom flash to the phone?

I'm currently running stock 2.3.4.

As far as I know 2.3.4 you need a PC if you were on a earlier version gingerbreak is what's used

You need a computer to gain root. Even if they come out with a one touch app like z4 root for gingerbread I would not recommended rooting and flashing Rome and themes because it will be inevitable that you will need a computer to sbf back to stock cause you bootlooped your device or worse ( we have all done it...some on purpose ;) )

Also, I have noticed sbf mentioned in several threads. What is it?
