    Ok there are so many threads on the official gingerbread leak i am confused. So maybe you fellas can answer my questions directly.

    1. Where do i download the leak?
    2. I am running stock rooted. So can i just flash over or must i sbf back to non root stock?
    3. I have seen different threads stating that this leak is not rooted and i have seen others that it is. Which is it?
    4. If it is rooted would i have to sbf or just flash?
    5.can some one post the link to the official leak rooted(if there is one)?

    I would appreciate answers like i stated i am confused now with all the posts i would like to try it but dont wanna lose root. Thanks guys

    Motorola DROID X, DROID 2 Gingerbread (2.3.3) ROMs Leak; How to Install Them

    Easy. As. Pie.

    Just follow the instructions. Mine restarted right into GB, didn't have to activate the phone, didn't need to do anything. I did clear the cache just as a normal precation, but so far it runs and looks great. It was nice to see my Quadrant scores jump from 1350 to 1665 though... Whether that actually means anything, I am not sure, but the phone feels fast and responsive.

    I, too, came from stock rooted. I was worried before I flashed to gb due to all the 'mine messed up' threads.

    My installation was as smooth as butter. This is what I did, again coming from just stock/z4 root:

    1) back up music/pic/misc. files on a laptop.
    2) format sd card... just to start fresh
    3) put gb prerooted file on sd card
    4) in cwr- wipe cache x4, wipe data x4, wipe dalvek cache x4, wipe battery stats x4
    5) flash dxgbrooted rom... took about 4 minutes
    6) set up phone

    No issues or bugs whatsoever. I did have to do the market fix app to get overclock app back... no biggie.

    The only app that I found that doesnt work is vignette, but the devs are working on it.

    So there is no need to sbf? Just flash over?

    1) I got my dl of prerooted gb at mydroidworld in droid x forum. There are three dls- deodoxed, prerelease gb, and prerooted gb. U want the prerooted one. DL on a computer and transfer, it's big
    2) ymmv... I was stock/z4 root.... no custom rom at all. I did not sbf.
    3) the first leak that came out was nonrooted, the second came prerooted, the third (deodoxed) is just an optional add-on after u flash the preooted gb. Again u want the prerooted one.
    4) don't understand ur question
    5) mydroidworld.com.... look in the droid x forum

    I am far from a tech expert. I just read a bunch and followed the directions of others, and it worked..... lol

    Hopefully, someone else will come and help u out more.

    If you're only rooted but still running stock you don't have to sbf. That's how I did it and I had no problems whatsoever.

    so i downloaded the leak i think it is one of the best things i have tried(besides ultimate droid. But thats dead in the water) and everything is beautiful and flawless although the only problem i seem to have is i cannot go into CW. Am i missing something? A trick if some sorts? How would i be able to install things if i cannot get into CW?

    No you dont....you can use Droid X Bootstrapper as long as you go in and turn OFF USB Debugging. If you choose to leave debugging on, then you need to use D2 Bootstrapper...

    Been running GB leak since it got rooted/deodexed and I have had issue with FCs on apparently but so far if I uninstall and redownload from market they work fine. Phone running smooth themes it with Juicemane even hit a Quadrant of 2000 running it. I have no complaints
