    Lightbulb with a droid x2 and deleted bloatware can't install Gingerbread

    After getting my droid x2 I rooted the phone and began freezing some of the bloatware. When I got the notification that the upgrade was
    available I tried to install and each time it failed. I contacted VZ and the tech support was very patient with me and we tried everything possible from battery pull to safe mode (which didn't load). He then had me wipe everything off the phone and bring the phone back to
    factory. The apps that I froze with titanium backup didn't reappear and all the apps I downloaded from the market(free) were lost along with
    the ones I purchased. Since all of the monkeying around I found out that it looks like you can't delete any of the required apps if you want to upgrade to gingerbread. This restriction seems to doom all of us rooted droids to never getting rid of the bloatware. Where is the list of required apps and where can I down load them from? There are a lot of apps that show in titanium backup that are not on my phone.

    Anybody else have these problems????

    You can actually just sbf back to stock 2.2.2, then if you want root, install the preroot gb. All instructions can be found here.

    You should have tried unfreezing the apps with titanium before updating

    This! Once you SBF, I believe all the factory Apps will come back. Then root, install pre rooted gingerbread, then freeze away!

    If you still have your root access, you can use tenfars system recovery boot strap and P3Droids AIO update to get you to rooted gingerbread. Otherwise you'll have to sbf as previously mentioned.

    After looking at all the different advice I've received, some quite lengthy I've now asked myself why am I trying to go back to my
    original droid x2 on froyo 2.2.2 so that I can update my os. My phone is rooted and the phone is working. It seems to me that as many people who've rooted their phones there should be an easy way to install the new os without having to go thru all the mess of going back to retrieve all the original bloatware. Do we like the challenge of getting Gingerbread or do we just like to beat ourselves up?
    Removing the bloatware is one of the reasons we root our phones. Why is this requirement to have all of the bloatware installed in order to update? It seems to me that a rooted gingerbread update should not require the bloatware.

    Like I said, if you don't want to sbf, use the TBH AIO installer, The only requirement is you're rooted.

    I've taken my phone back to factory (sbf??) enough times so am interested in tenfars. Will this bring up gingerbread rooted? Will this work if i've deleted system apps? where can I get tenfars and p3droids? is there a more thorough discussion of what will happen if I go this route? My phone is working now with 2.2.2 rooted. I do have some apps (soundback, talkback) that wont update. Is gingerbread worth all the effort?
