    Its 4.5.608 so as far as i know its Gingerbread, but the leaks were 606 and 607 this one is 608, im wondering a few things: 1. Will z4root still work... if not maybe the droid x rooting method or another 2. Will clockwork mod work 3. Will i be able to sbf back to Froyo if it doesnt work

    These questions have been answered many times.

    z4root uses a Froyo-specific exploit. It doesn't work on Gingerbread.

    ClockworkMod recovery works.

    2.4.x SBF can be flashed, the bootloader was not altered.

    Thank you for your reply, although the questions were not actually questions i was looking for someone to answer, but more of things that i was gonna try and find the answer to. I did realize now that the rooting process does not work anymore, but i do think that there is a droid x rooting method that works. Im gonna try and find it now. Once again thanks for your answer, but it was more about posting that the OTA is out. Not me trying to get someone to answer them, xD
