I know these questions has been probably been answered a million times already so I do apologize ahead of time, but I have been away from the Android scene for awhile now and I'm trying to catch up on everything. I would search through all the pages to get my answers but with work and my son I have little time. I'm seeing several ways to update to the new GB OTA, Deodexed, etc. and I'm confused. Now onto my question...
I'm still on 2.2.1 (.340), I'm not on a ROM or anything just rooted. I now want to the plunge and update to the the final Gingerbread OTA that's out. I checked out this page Official Gingerbread Release (This is not Rooted or Deodexed) Verizon Gingerbread OTA and it has the GB OTA update.zip for download, but it's not rooted. When I click on the link to download it, the file comes up as "Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US.zip (111.69 MB)"? My phone says Im already on Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US? Is that just a typo because I thought the GB OTA was "2.3.3(4.5.588)"? Maybe I'm just misunderstanding all this?
So If I download that update.zip and flash it, will it update my phone to the Verizon DroidX GB OTA 2.3.3(4.5.588)? Then once I'm done flashing that zip, can't I just go ahead and use that new Gingerbreak APK to gain root?
But if I do it that way I wont be able to use themes/ROMs right? Because the update.zip is not Deodexed?
So what is the best way for me to update to GB? I want to be able to use the themes/roms that are out.
I hope I didn't confuse everyone, thanks for your patience and help.
