    Upgraded to the GB 4.5.596, was Z4 Rooted-Please help

    Hi,

    I am new here and a Nub as far as rooting goes. I rooted a few other types of phones, and i rooted my friends Droid X. She hit update the other day and lost root.

    Can someone point me to what tools (RSDlite and SBF) i need and a turorial if there is one.

    Direct links would be great, but i will take any help you guys have to offer.

    If i backup her contacts, pics. music etc, is there a system restore that i could just flash it back and just reroot it and put her stuff back in?

    I also read that there is a pre rooted update by TBH i think of GB 4.5.596
    There are 2 versions of it i think as well, i dont know what i need. If the above option is not able to be done. I think i have to flash back with RSDlite and im not sure of what version of SBF i would need, then install the rooted update. (have no clue how) It may be the same way as unrevoked was done on my friends phone, use vol button etc.

    Thank you guys in advance for any help...

    Thank you for the reply. If I use rsd lite and the correct sbf file, do you have to wipe and do the factory reset if you had nothing in it but the upgraded gb stock firmware? All this was is a rooted dx. I just want to roll it back. If it does have to be wiped, all I have to do is backup her data and contacts. I'm wondering if ihave to do all that, how much harder is it to just load in the rooted update gb 4.5.596?

    Thank you again
