    D2 like DX?

    hi, i have a DX rooted themed ect... my wife has a D2 and I was just wondering if the z4 root will work flawlessly on hers as did mine. Also what is the most recent GB for flash for the D2?

    any help appreciated

    thanks

    D2 will still use z4root for sure. I think build .595 is the base rom i've seen on d2 builds. OTA came out on a holiday weekend, haven't seen too many posts from dev's on the new build, could have missed them though.

    D2, d2g and pro are all slated for gb ota by the end of september going by the normal calendar instead of fiscal. Might be sooner if vzw plays nice with moto on their "approved" builds they should have completed....

    I would avoid flashing gb at this point for the d2. The benefits of gb don't justify the bugs in my opinion. Gingerbread is a minor update and is actually a little more hardware intensive. Just wait for the official release, you are not missing out.

    I disagree. I jumped to the leak and that was awesome in itself, but then I flashed liberty gb 0.7 and its truly night and day. The bugs are minimal and its just great. Smoithee, faster and much nicer ui and animations. Its worth it, but to each his/her own

    I may be new to this, but what does root and flash mean? I got a droid 2 global running 2.2 and all this talk about gingerbread has my intrest, im just not as tech savvy as everyone else. So can someone please speak layman terms to the new guy?!

    Please don't take offense to this but there are literally hundreds of threads discussing root and roms. Do some searching first. If you Are not satisfied, I'd be happy to walk you through it.
    Root =superuser permissions on your device, which gives you full control.
    Flash = the process of installing a file in a recovery (custom or otherwise). An example of this would be putting a new rom on your phone (you would "flash" the rom) wish I could help more but im busy at the moment

    Maybe you should just try a different GB ROM.
    Liberty v.6/7 (I think I wanna try Zombiestomped though) are both very fast and stable. I have not ran into very many bugs at all.
