    Stupid question! For sure we will have a Gingerbread Leak rom for our Droid X?
    If not it will be a good decision take it HTC Incredible? ​

    I don't see Motorola abandoning their flagship phone without pushing it to 2.3. However, I don't know if there will be a leak before the OTA push. Leaks are dependent on someone risking their job. :)

    Is there even any official word that the X will get 2.3?

    Who needs official? P3Droid has has the gingerbread updates for the X, D2G, and Droid Pro for weeks. According to him, there will be no Droid 2 gingerbread update.

    Unfortunately no. Moto implemented some new method of blocking root access, and he nor I or anyone else have been able to even figure out how moto is blocking it, let alone how to hack it. Its only a matter of time though, we'll have root eventually :)

    Actually its the new Linux kernel. It fixes the security flaws that we used to elevate to root.

    Well, I've been doing some pentesting on it, and I could get myself in using a security flaw with adb and metasploit. I'm looking into a better method, though, because that route bricked my phone (god I do that so often). I'm looking into a good ol' buffer overflow, but I haven't had time to write it yet.

    When you say 'get in', do you mean you actually loaded a custom kernal or did you just get past the bootloader? Oh, and good luck with the buffer overflow, that actually might work AND be easy to do for most people :)
