    To Gingerbread Or Not To Gingerbread?

    I have been hearing all sorts of horror stories about upgrading to GB and it has me scared to upgrade. My nephew, an IT pro, has the DX and has upgraded to GB and says that all the problems are with other phones, not the DX.

    I got rid of Lookout (it was slowing things down) and installed MobiUcare. To get all of the features of MobiUcare, I need to upgrade to GB.

    I have been backing up my apps (App Backup and Restore). I will need to backup my SMS and MMS messages. I don't know what else to backup?

    I need to figure out how to upgrade to GB and if it's a good idea. I am using an unrooted DX. I am not a Droid expert by any means!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I am seeing in several posts that you need to do a factory reset after upgrading to GB. Failing to do the factory reset will cause your DX to be buggy, and doing the factory reset will lose everything on the phone! Is this BullS**t going to be required for every sw upgrade??

    I miss the multi clipboard, straight to voicemail, birthdays and hate the bright lights.
    Love the speed, stability, and programmable dock.

    You should install CM7.
    Its technically GB, but based on a hijacked version of the Froyo kernal.

    And its also probably the fastest ROM, giving you quadrant scores over 2600 stock.
    (3300 plus for me @1.4 gHZ.

    How do I do that, and what are the risks? Do I need to be rooted to do it, as I am not rooted. I am pretty much a droid technology newbie.

    GB is hands down waaaay better than froyo. Just do it. Each phone is different and no matter what you hear, your experience will be the most valuable. Try it for yourself and if you hate it (doubtful), just sbf back. Personally, i have few if any bugs. I love gb. Love it. I needed to try it on my individual, unique, phone

    I'm concerned with losing stuff, and losing abilities.

    How do I upgrade to GB, and how do I roll it back if it's not going to work? Do I in fact have to factory reset afterwards?
