    OK I rooted using Z4root kept it a few days. Until gingerbread came out. Then I used z4 to unroot now the ota will not take. I did not remove or rename any files. Does this mean I have to spf back to get it to install?
    P.S. If gingerbread is still that crappy blue the prerelease was I may stick with 2.2 anyway my wife is happy with this phone anyway.

    Did you use Titanium Backup to freeze any apps?

    To my knowledge the only thing that would make it fail is not having all of the preinstalled apps in place.

    No all I did was root then install wireless tether. Then I uninstalled wireless tether unrooted and tried the ota. It has failed twice. O well not crazy about the blue anyway.

    I had a weird thing happen 2day. This morning when my alarm went off, my touch screen was not working. I had to pull the battery and restart my phone. After that the touch screen worked, but now when I rotate my phone, the screen does not. I checked my settings and they r fine. Anybody else have this issue. Is my phone dying?? Hope not, got it set the way I like it.

    It never rotated on the home screen without a 3rd party launcher.

    It doesn't rotate in the apps either?

    My phone is rooted, last week I wiped and downloaded Gingerbread. Some things rotate and somethings don't. ie.... homesreen and phone do not rotate, e-mail does and the app screens do. Confussed.

    That's normal. You need to use a launcher to rotate the homescreen
