    If you are just installing the OTA by checking for updates and installing it that way, then I would do a factory reset in Froyo before hand, the update to GB via the OTA.
    I'm installing the rooted version. So no go with the factory reset if going the rooted direction?

    If you are installing the rooted version, you will be installing it in ClockWorkMODS Bootstrap Custom Recovery (The Droid X or Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery apps). When you initially get into bootstrap to install the Gingerbread files, wipe data and cache, then install the files, after the files are done, before you leave bootstrap, wipe data/cache again, then reboot. When the phone comes back on, skip setup, turn the phone off, the boot into STOCK recovery and wipe data/cache again, reboot, then go ahead and set up the phone. If you get into a bootloop after installing Gingerbread, battery pull, boot stock recovery and wipe data/cache.

    This has always worked for me when having issues with a ROM instal.

    I have another way of wording it but this is a family friendly site and saying "if you don't wipe you are going to still have (insert word here) on your phone".....might not be too family friendly.

    Oh gravy! I'm at the point where to boot into stock recovery and wipe data. I can already tell that this is running smooth! But the problem I'm having is that I forgot how to get into stock recovery! I forgot the button combos! Silly me. Can you please tell me?

    EDIT: Never mind, searched over at Android Forums and found that the Froyo buttons to get into stock recovery is different than GB. No wonder!
