    thank you for this. i was dreading having to dig my old WIN XP computer out....that thing is slow as balls. I was trying to decide what to do. i am really liking how my phone is running on stock GB right now. do i wait for the stock one to get root, or do i just flash back to 2.3.340 and flash the root version....decisions decisions :)

    I have this installed but am unable to get into recovery uder any method, anyone else have this issue? Rom run nice and smooth, root works great but can not get into clockwork or recovery, phone reboots, get red M then screen stays light but goes black. Only fix is to pull battery then normal boot applies.

    Its a known problem with bootstrap recovery. They're trying to find a fix/workaround.

    P3droid via twitter said he is working on it and will have a fix shortly. It may require you to flash back to stock and re-do the process, hopefully not.

    P3droid has said that the D2 bootstrap will work on DX GB.

    Installed it a few minutes ago and everything is running great. I did download and use the D2 bootstrapper as recommended. It worked beautifully. It is very fast even with all the bloat and MOTOBLUR is somewhat tolerable. I can't wait for custom roms on this thing. It will fly.

    I also used maderstock to just get back to stock and that worked fine for me.

    TBH has a zip file on the app for sbf to 2.3.340 . Can I just download that to my phone then install the update.zip on my phone and be done or do I have to use computer and the rsd method?

    You have to sbf with a PC, its the only way to get back to stock if your running the leaked gingerbread rom.

    You need to use the bootstrap for the DROID 2.
