    Look in my signature for steps on flashing a ROM. As for gingerbread, you can't get true gingerbread until Motorola releases it, however you can get a gingerbread "theme". Check out my signature for more help. :)

    Im not seeing ur signature, a ROMS like the launcher stuff right? Like I said im new at all this and not sure what's what, but I like cell phones and want to learn all this stuff and I catch on fast, but the simpiler u explane things the better im a lil blond lol but anything will help.

    As for the gingerbread update even though im rooted will I still get it? Some ppl have said yes and some ppl have said no.

    ROMs replace the entire phone system.

    You can't see signatures from the forum app.

    You aren't going to be able to run Gingerbread yet, the closest thing you can get is to install a custom rom and then place a Gingerbread theme on top of it.

    Custom roms come in two flavors, Blur and Blurless.

    Blur uses the stock motorola user interface that you are probably used too.

    Blurless is basically as close to the stock android operating system that we can get.

    I'd suggest browsing through the ROM sub-forums here and finding a rom and a theme that you like and that post that in here. I, or someone else, would be happy to walk you through the steps.

    If you wiped data then yes. all user apps are deleted when you do that including dx bootstrap app. So if you followed the instructions installing your rom you would have done just that. However, if you downloaded the app from the lonk above it should still be on your sd card in the downloads folder.

    Nope. I wouldn't make it a habit of asking for other free apps. The bootstrap is made free by the dev, Koush. Every other app will need to be purchased.

    When I was running Apex there was any overclock module within the rom.. download terminal emulator and then type in

    Su
    Overclock


    And see what happens, back when I was running it Fab gave us the files to install ourselves but perhaps it's been included in the rom now since it's been so long
