im rocking GB on my PRO YAY
I was rooted previously using the method above. This update file did not retain root.
I'll keep an eyeout for the new GingerBreak. SuperOneClick has been hit or miss for me in the past.
superoneclick did not work for me so let me know when gingerbreak comes out
Yeah, I read that. Virtually no updates retain root. I was just saying that there's no way at present to install the Team Black Hat files if the OTA update has already been installed since there's no root. As you said, they don't work with the stock recovery.
Feel free to try it out and keep a check on it here:
[26.04.2011][v1.2] GingerBreak APK (root for GingerBread) - xda-developers
Gave it a shot with 1.20 and looks like it doesn't work, for me at least. Device has been sitting with the "Rooting..." dialog window for a couple minutes now...
Been there, doesn't work.
Hey Guys, I have 3.8.7. I am really bad with technology, so can anyone be kind enough to give me like a mini tutorial how to use this to update to gingerbread? Thank you so much
I did the upgrade and I am currently getting a looping error "the process com.motorola.service.main has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" on startup. I can't stop it. What is going on?
EDIT: Seems like this somehow resolved itself. I booted into recovery but I couldn't open up the menu with the @ button. So I started pressing random buttons and something worked. The phone took me to the activation screen.
Go back to page 2 of this thread. vivid22 already gave a good set of step by step instructions:
It always helps to read through a thread, especially a longer one. Chances are most of the basic questions have already been addressed.
How Do you go from 2.3.3 to gingerbread?
2.3.3 is Gingerbread.
3.8.7 is the Motorola version number, not the Android version number. If you currently have 3.8.7, then you actually have Android version 2.2.1.
Just download the file from the OP and follow vivid22's directions to upgrade to gingerbread.
...or just wait until you get the over the air update directly from Verizon.
