    DroidX running 2.2.1 (Froyo), and rooted. (every day I tap "Install later" when the "time to upgrade" pop-up makes its annoying appearance...for over a year)

    I'm also running a custom ROM (DarkSlide).

    I figure it's time to get current, but I have a couple of questions in this regard:

    After I get current (Gingerbread), will I still be able to root to get all nifty and everything again? The main things I don't want to lose are Wireless Tethering and Titanium Backup).

    So, making a slightly educated guess, please tell me if I'm close:

    Unroot
    Return to stock
    Upgrade to GB
    Re-root.

    I'm sure Z4 Root will unroot, but I'm sure I need to return to stock to upgrade to GB. The biggest mystery is how to get back to stock.
    Once I do get back to stock, (and go through the laborious task of initializing the device again), is Z4 Root the key to re-rooting?
    Will Wireless Tether run on GB, or will it require a patch or fix?

    I do have Titanium backup, which I read is essential to success.

    One last question: Blur or Non-Blur? I'm looking more for performance than features, so I assume that non-Blur will give me better performance, but what would I be losing if I chose that over a Blur ROM?

    Sorry to sound like so much of a noob, but I'm the kind of user who gets his phone the way he wants it and doesn't touch it for a (very long) while.

    If anyone could lead me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

    Many thanks, in advance, for any assistance offered.
    I did this a few months ago after i got my GNex.

    Note you dont have to delete your apps but i did.

    I used Z4Root to unroot and deleted all my apps. Then i used 1KDS ISO to flash stock 2.3.340. i then took the OTA to 4.5.602 and rooted using Petes 1 click root: http://www.psouza4.com/Bionic/

    Ok, I'm up and running on GB and doing system updates now. Is there a recommended rooting method, or would you suggestion following one of the two methods that are on the CD I wrote (per Savagerun's suggestion)? Also, I already have Droid X Bootstrapper, but you recommend Droid2 Bootsrapper over it?

    MANY thanks for everyone's help/suggestions. It's been a) easy and 2) uneventful (whew!)

    You can use either the d3 one click or zergrush to root. Zergrush is the newest way but either will work. I posted info for you about the bootstrap you may have missed it so go back a couple posts you'll see it.

    OK, I'm up and running and rooted! Thanks to Quicksilver for the lead on the root procedure.

    Jim is a happy guy once again.

    Nevermind i just looked at quicksilvers post that's the one click root. Zergrush is supposed to be a bit quicker because the phone only reboots once instead of 3 times with the d3. Good luck...

    Sorry I took so long to reply. Been busy.

    I used Pete's 1-click method that QuickSilver7714 referenced and it worked like a charm.

    Happiness Ensues!
