    Droid X Liberty 2.0.1 to Official Gingerbread

    I am running Liberty 2.0.1 on my Droid X (Froyo 2.2.1). Whenever the official Gingerbread update comes from Verizon, what do I need to do to make sure the update goes smoothly? Should I flash back to stock and then un-root, or what?

    Thanks!!

    SBF to stock. That's the only way you can recieve the update. I would wait until you actually hear it's officially been released to SBF though.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I am still pretty new to this and all of the terminology, but what exactly are the steps for "SBFing", whatever that stands for? I have searched for the steps and I have found so many sources and different methods. Do you have a short, simple few steps that you could tell me on how to SBF? I am pretty comfortable flashing roms, as I have switched between Liberty and Apex several times.

    Thanks again,
    Wes

    You got it man. It'll bring your X back to stock. Just follow the exact same thing Randy does. After you SBF it, do a factory reset and clear cache. Good luck with that!

    Before I get started with this, I know that I did a full backup of my phone before I rooted and flashed Liberty on my phone. Would restoring that backup, and then un-rooting with Z4 root set me back to stock? All I have done since rooting is flash Liberty and Apex a few times. I did change some of the system files such as my notification slider background (took the transparent one from Apex and put it in the Liberty Green GB Theme).

    Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like I could just restore back to that original backup, and then un-root. Then I'd be good to go with getting the OTA update from Verizon when it comes.

    You can go restore to the original stock .340 rooted you started out on, but as far as I know, you can't unroot with Z4Root. When you rooted your X on froyo, you clicked "premanent root". As far as I know, you can only SBF to get rid of root on the X. On the OG Droid you could unroot with Superoneclick, but not with the X. Also, if you want to take the Gingerbread OTA when it drops, you have to be unrooted, with EVERY single piece of bloatware intact according to P3Droid. SBF'ing it would be the most sure fire way you will receive the Gingerbread update.

    Hold up...just looked at my girlfriends Droid X, she's on .340 with Z4Root....is was wrong about the un-root button. lol

    Like I said, long as all the original files are intact, I imagine you should be ok. Not positive, cause everywhere I've looked they say to SBF. But you never know, it may work.
