    DROID X2 gingerbread update root issues

    I recently rooted my DROIDx2 in group using gingerbreak, the root was successful. Later I updated to gingerbread from the Verizon update service. After the update completed I tried to give some apps root access, but I could not. I then installed a root checker to see if I was rooted properly. Unfortunately it reported that I was not rooted. I tried rooting again with gingerbreak,but it does not work. Please help!

    yeah I was going to say....a little research would have told you that if you took the OTA you would lose root. No biggie though....you can SBF back to 2.2, root, and flash pre-rooted GB (which is exactly what you are currently running....but rooted) and you are off to the races in less than an hour.
    I have done a lot of write up's....here's a link to some. If you would like help with your phone simply ask, PM me, or drop me an email and I will assist where I can.
    List of phones I can help with: Droid, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, Droid X, Droid X2, Droid 3, Droid Bionic.
    If you don't get response here try me on DroidForums, XDA, or Rootzwiki under the same name
