    ive seen alot of people saying that their getting it and i realize that its being released in waves i know that much. but im curious i have a droid 2 i have kept unrooted because knowing how i go through phones i dont need to kill the warranty. but moot point. my phone has never been rooted and im wondering if i just need to wait for the OTA update to be sent to me or if i have to do that system reboot thing people are talking about

    Have you tried going to Settings, scroll all the way down to About Phone, and touch System Updates at the top of the list?
    Do this preferrably when connected to WiFi, as it is a big download.

    Well, that's exactly why your thread is misleading. In your first post, you stated you had a Droid 2. Now, you're saying you have a Droid 2 Global. They are not the same phone. GB has not been released for the D2G.

    So I am currently on the leaked version of GB and running ZombieStomped. Can I do a nandroid, run this update, re-root, and reinstall my nandroid?

    And I've read that I can't re-root using Z4, so I would have to use the D3 method...any issues with that?
