    next step.. iconfuzed.

    I went from stock 2.1 to stock 2.2.. then back to 2.1.

    In the droid x hacking guide theres the following..
    Step C: Installing A Rooted 2.2 Froyo ROM.

    1. Since you are rooted, you can now proceed with preparing for installing 2.2. You will need to go to the market and download "Astro File Manager".
    2. Connect your USB on your DX and set to "USB MASS STORAGE". Once done, copy the "Bootstrapper.apk" to a directory on your SD card.
    3. While you still have the USB mounted, copy the rooted 2.2 Froyo ROM to the SD card's root. And make sure it's named "update.zip". Then unmount the USB connection.
    4. Go to settings > applications and make sure "UNKNOWN SOURCES" is checked.
    5. Open Astro File manager and locate the Bootstrapper.apk. Open and install the app.
    6. Once installed, it should be in your App menu. Open the app and select "Bootstrap Recovery". Then select "Reboot Recovery".
    7. While in recovery, navigate to install zip from sdcard. Install update.zip.
    8. Once completed, you should now have Froyo 2.2 with root.
    Where is this bootstrapper.apk file?

    I read some where that a few people have renamed the superuser files and then downloaded and installed the ota 2.2 update. Then they kept the root super user access.

    ...soo... ??????? huh??? how do i get the 2.2 with root?
