    YES it can be rooted I've already done so. If you're not on stock, or don't have all of the system files installed you may have difficulty installing. It will be rolled out in stages and available for pulling at Midnight

    I believe you need to use the droid 3 method of rooting if I'm not mistaken? I've seen a few links

    Did you guys with d2s have the official ota update the day after the soak test??
    I am curious because the droid 2 global soak test was tonight, and I am hoping the update comes very soon.

    Seeing as this forum/thread does not yet seem to be flooded with OMFG THIS BUILD HAS SO MANY BUGS posts.... is it safe to assume most folks are happy with it? (Or are there not many crazed midnight D2 enthusiasts like there are with the DX'rs?) Wondering if its safeish to walk my mother through this upgrade over the phone its been hard trying to remember back to froyo for any questions that arose....

    I have tried 3 times to ota ginngerbread and it keeps failing. I was rooted and the only thing I deleted was amazon mp3 but I redownloaded it and did a factory reset. Still nothing, anyone have any suggestions?

    I hear you may need to remove bootstrapper also. I am personally planning on doing a fresh sbf first. Then d3 root. As alternative, sounds like team black hat is about to release a pre rooted all-in-one flashable.

    MANY PEOPLE that were involved in the soak, didn't get the upgrade. I have my speculations and reasons why and won't post them in the public, but let's just say I'd SBF, factory data reset wait a couple hours and try pulling the download.

    They aren't speculations. Someone received an email saying they were removed from soak for having third party software on their phone. It's simple. If you're rooted or messed with your Froyo install, you ain't getting GB OTA until you SBF.

    Got my OTA update this morning. Am loving it. Anyone know of there is an sbf file in the works. Would like to see that before I root.
