    You can't do OTA updates if you're rooted.

    If you want GB, install an already rooted version from the Hack thread.

    I'm on my phone. But let me look around. It's easy once you're already rooted.

    The question is do you want to stay rooted or go stock? and if you want to theme or not, because the method of upgrade is different for each options.

    If you want to stay on a stock Gingerbread, you just have to sbf back to stock froyo and take the OTA update. Note, there is currently no way to root the OTA GB. However, if you want a pre-rooted GB follow these directions: Official DX Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.596) Release Thread - Something for everyone

    I like being rooted. Not a expert but phone seams to operate better. I checked three link out, will give it a try. I think mirror 2 applies to me. Do you know if this wipes my phone? Don't mean to be a pest :}

    I can't speak for Method #3 since I went back to stock Froyo and used Method #2. Method #1 and #2 will wipe everything. Are you on on of the GB leaks?

    After I do this, do I need to root again?

    You will need to go back to stock first (sbf to .340) then use method #2 to update. This will give you a pre-rooted GB .596 (oxeded) as you will not be able to get root using Method #1 (for now).

    You will have to sbf back to stock using a computer.

    Sbf requires flashing your phone with stock Froyo putting it back exactly to how it was out of the box.

    You will need RSD Lite 4.9, the 2.3.340 VZ sbf file and the current Motorola drivers. You will also need a Windows PC.

    There are tons of how to's. You should read those and watch a Youtube video or 2 before you do it. Its simple but you have to follow the instructions.

    This is not a correct statement.
    Even rooted devices can get OTA updates. It only fails if you have removed, frozen, or renamed any of the preinstalled apps.
