    I'm running the leaked version - perfectly stable for me, though it does have the persistent syncing icon problem (doesn't kill battery life, so I don't care). Easy peasy to install - the pre-rooted version is worth it too. BTW, ClockworkMod needs to be the Droid 2 version, not Droid X... Not waiting for Verizion/Motorola to get their acts together and release it, too impatient lol.

    Id rather wait until june 1st instead of getting a buggy version of gingerbread, and wait another 6 months for a maintenance update.

    I saw that tweet from P3 as well. Should we convert back to stock and see if we get the ota or should we wait for more confirmation?

    If you take the OTA you may not get root back for a long time. Currently no one has been able to root the GB release, only keep root from upgrading via zip file.

    Update: In case I put the emphasis on the wrong spot. You'll definitely lose root, how long it will be for is what's up in the air.

    So we should wait until someone has rooted GB? Then....convert back to stock to accept ota then re-root? If you wish to remain rooted that is....

    I got the tweet from P3Droid and it said not to accept the OTA if you wanted to stay rooted. Also, if you are on leaked GB or a custom Froyo ROM, you will have to sbf back to stock 2.3.340 to get the GB OTA.

    I am waiting until the GB OTA is rooted and deodexed before taking it.

    How do you go to stock rooted and get rid of a custom rom? I want to remain stock if the update comes root isn't a concern for me at the moment.
