    I want gingerbread.!

    Okay, so I've been constantly checking for the official OTA on my X since the 13th and I'm done waiting. I want to update my X to the lastest GB leak WITH it still being rooted. I'm still on the official Froyo and it's rooted but with no rom changes or anything. Can some please tell me EXACTLY how to update it to the latest GB leak WITH it still having root access.? Major please and thank yous to anyone who can help

    You need to root it with Gingerbreak, just like you did with Z4root for Froyo...

    A couple of questions:

    1) Will applying this update wipe my phone? Specifically, will I keep things like my text messages?

    2) Regarding this Droid2 bootstrap...so basically, they're saying to use the one for Droid 2 not Droid X. So basically this lets me back up my phone, text message, contacts, etc, and restore it if something goes wrong? (Sorry if this is n00bish, I haven't gone beyond using z4root.)

    Follow the directions closely and make sure you got a full download and it wasn't cut off early...
