    Some folks over at MyDroidWorld got the official "soak group" push of Gingerbread 2.3.3 for the Droid X2, and they have already rooted it. Here's a quote from the MyDroidWorld article, and below that is a link to instructions and downloads,
    Make sure to be cautious during the process and follow the instructions carefully. Enjoy!

    Nice to see but I still really want the Moto Gingerbread builds to be rooted outright, rather than going the pre-rooted route. The D3s lack of root is the ONLY thing holding me back on getting one.

    No no no lol I'd MUCH rather be able to flash roms than just one click root.

    This is the most epic thing to happen to my x2 since i got it. I Have it installed now :)

    Hey I'm new to android but I have this pre-rooted gingerbread on my DX2. I was wondering what exactly the difference is between "once click root" & "pre-rooted". I mean I get the obvious that one isn't rooted at first and then becomes rooted which probably means that you can unroot it and the pre-root is always rooted. Once they are both rooted though, what is the difference?

    Thanks to anyone who will explain this.

    Pre rooted GB requires you to be on rooted Froyo and flash the rooted files.

    One click root GB means that you can root the OTA with a simple app.

    And there really isn't any need to have a root program with the X or X2, when you can just install the pre rooted files...

    Does this mean that we have a good chance of rooting the Bionic when it drops?
