    Root after gb

    Hello..shortly after upgrading to gb I did a bit of research on rooting my phone but from what I read it seemed a bit dangerous as rooting on gb methods were not tried and true yet seeing as it was just released. I even noticed a few instances where people actually recommended against rooting if you've done the upgrade. Now that its been some time..im figuring that its been done alot and I now want to do this right. I want to fully research backing up my existing image and restoring it before I root and hopefully there is a guide out there that covers recovery as well as rooting. Pardon me if I posted this in the wrong forum..any suggested documentation that I could use or suggestions in general would ne really helpful... thanks!!

    It's impossible to root the X after the upgrade to GB. You have to SBF back to FroYo and then install rooted GB from there.

    Here's how:

    From Liberty 2.0.1, Stock, Apex, CM7, etc. (ANY ROM) to Liberty GB

    If you don't want the Liberty ROM, just don't install the LGB 0.x zip at the end.

    You're in the wrong section. You need to sbf back to Froyo, then root and install the rooted GB files. There are how to's in the X2 section

    If you buy the TBH app, you can use the all in one .602 zip and install over any ROM or version. I installed it over CM7 and the radio and everything is correct.
