    Root doesn't prevent OTA updates.....so you'll still get updates.

    You'll lose root with an OTA update though.

    If you want to remove root, delete /system/xbin/su and reboot your phone.

    So what CAN I do with root at access at this point? Can I remove any bloatware and such yet?

    Yes, but don't remove it. Freeze it via TitaniumBackup. You can freeze the bloat obviously, you can now take screenshot's to share, make back ups, to name a few.

    Please guys/gals I see the word "backups" being used.

    That is a titanium backup of apps and settings not a backup of your ROM. There is no recovery available as of yet.

    Just a friendly reminder that if you do something horrible, your "backup" will do nothing, because its not a nandroid.

    Freeze the bloatware! Do Not remove bloatware!

    If you remove the Bloatware, you may not be able to update to the next version of the O/S. I made the mistake of removing bloatware from my OG Droid and I had to 'rebuild' using .sbf, the reroot and finally add all my apps back.

    Haha^

    Does anyone know if this 1 click D3 method works on a Android 2.3.3 Droid X2?
    My friend updated his when he got it, and since the X2 is usually on 2.2.2, I read GingerBreak doesn't work anymore.

    I just used the ADB shell method and just wanted to give the tip that you should prolly learn how to use it anyways so you can always have the latest root method going forward.

    BTW, I LOVE ROOT! Phone is so much faster!
