    Can i install the official gingerbread update OTA if im rooted?

    all i did to my phone is root it using the z4 root installed using adb/sdk command line.

    I didnt install anything else other than apps

    can i still upgrade to gingerbread ota and still be rooted?

    Im currently at froyo and dont wanna use custom roms, i only want root so i can run certain apps. i still wanna be able to receive official updates in the future ota

    No. You would have to unroot, and install the TBH 2-part file for rooted GB. Rooted users cannot get the ota, and the ota is not rooted yet anyways.

    I have heard of root only users getting the official OTA. The end result is 596 without root. The OTA is not rootable, yet, but you will be able to receive future OTA's. If you go with the TbH 2-part you will lose future OTA ability but you will be rooted.

    Well I am running rooted gingerbread. And yes you receive future updates if your rooted after you sbf back to stock before you take an update. That is if the DX will ever get another update. If you are still on Froyo root with z4 mod then install the 2 part zip files from tbh using D2 bootstrap. And stay rooted on gingerbread That easy

    Let me clarify this. IF you are on a rooted GB you will not receive future OTA's, if I understand correctly. If you SBF back to froyo or the stock unrooted 596 ( yes there's an sbf for that, too), then you will be able to recieve future OTA's, if there ever is another released for the DX.

    Hello all,

    How can I tell if my phone is rooted? I bought a Droid X on craigslist and when he sold me the phone he said he restored to factory settings.

    I want to get official gingerbread update. What should I do?

    Thanks in advance!
