    I was on the the leaked version but sbf'd and took the current OTA update day before yesterday. To be honest, I can't tell a difference between the two from a day to day operation point of view. I have heard that the radio files and some other system files are different. If she is happy right now and upgrading in a month..."let sleeping dogs lie" as they say.

    I just got the Gingerbread OTA update last night, and frankly, I hate it. It doesn't run better or worse, but the UI is terrible (for me). I am looking for ways to get back to the pre-Gingerbread state of my phone, but unfortunately, a factory reset left with stuck with the ugly gingerbread, w/o most of my stuff. I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to super-user issues with my phone. What are my options? I'm not opposed to rooting, but I don't know the first thing about it. Is there a way I can go back to the version I had two days ago, before the update? Is there something else I can do?

    I appreciate the help, because the UI on this phone will honestly drive me crazy.

    The only option is to SBF

    So you're talking about going through this process:

    So I need I would need to download the 3.8.7 SBF & RSD Lite on a PC, and then go thru this process? What exactly would be the state of my phone? Not rooted, but stock, pre-Gingerbread?

    Would rooting be a better option?

    I just want to get rid of the blue/white color scheme. For some reason, I find it highly annoying.

    Rooting will not give you new colors.
    By doing the SBF you will simply go back to what you had before the update, so Froyo.
    It will not be rooted, and everything will be as it was when you first got it. For the most part. The SD card will still have your data, but you would need to have the market update all your apps.
    I'm pretty sure you can get your apps back by simply loading up the market and going to "my apps".
    Your contacts will need to either be backed up using verizon backup manager or by using google to store your contacts (that's what I do)
    But I don't know how to backup any other settings, if at all possible.

    So basically you would be starting from scratch.

    Your other option would be installing CM7, but the cm7 thread is a little hard to browse through and I do not know exactly where the right files/instructions are at this moment.

    Thanks! Two more questions:

    Can I use this process to get back to 3.8.7 Froyo?:

    Is the 3.8.7 Froyo update the most recent Froyo for the Pro?

    No you need the instructions for SBF:

    And yes, 387 is the latest Froyo

    Yeah, that's the process. If you flash the SBF, you'll be back to Froyo with the original color scheme. But it won't be long before the phone prompts you to update to Gingerbread again. And it will keep doing that. Constantly. So flashing the SBF is only a temporary fix to that.

    If you root, there are ways of changing the look of things. Rooting in and of itself won't change anything, but it can allow ways of changing things. Your best bet is to go look around and ask in the Droid Pro Hacks forum (including the Roms subforum) - Droid Pro Hacks.
