    Attempting to root, not having any luck

    GingerBreak v1.2 is not working with my 2.3.3 OS.

    Any suggestions?

    As far as I know gingerbreak does not work if you already updated to gingerbread. It will only work on froyo 2.2

    GingerBreak will not root 2.3.3. I already tried it the 2nd day I had my X2. I researched and what you have to do is SBF flash with RDS Lite back to 2.2.2. Use GingerBreak, then download the rooted version of the stock 2.3.3, but in order to do this you have to use get the System Recovery app that allows you to use the .zip file to do this. You should be able to find out how to do this if you Google "How to rooted Droid X2 2.2.2" or 2.3.3.

    Flash SBF back to 2.2.2 with RDS Lite
    Use GingerBreak
    Install the custom recovery app (that w as found on a Chinese forum)
    Install P3Droid's rooted GingerBread.

    Also after you do all of this I recommend installing Titanium Backup and removing all the bloatware apps with that, especially the V-Cast ones.

    Factory reset should take me back to froyo shouldn't it. Phone updated to Gingerbread the night I got it (this last Sun).

    The only thing I am interested in doing is getting rid of the bloatware and possibly downloading a speed control app so I can slow my phone down a little (save that battery).

    No. You have to flash. Factory reset will erase everything, but keep 2.3.3.

    Crap....... I consider myself to be so-so technically saavy, and can read and follow directions, but I am wondering if this may be a little out of my league.

    If you can follow directions, you'll be fine.

    I will do a little more research and see if I feel comfortable trying it. At least I was able to find a forum that can help me out if the poo hits the fan.

    It is pretty standard stuff. You are sbfing(something everyone should know) then rooting which is using gingerbreak that you already tried to do. Installing the bootstrap which is just 1 button press after you get the .apk installed. Then finally flashing p3droid's rooted gingerbread.
