    So from what I can gather there's currently is no way to root if you took the OTA gingerbread update.

    Then I stumbled on this article, can anyone verify if this is legit?

    Thanks.

    Its legit. They're talking about the TBH 2 part files. Myself and countless others have done it.

    Also, the OTA is unrootable. You are flashing a tweaked version of the OTA.

    Sbf'ng back to froyo then flashing one of the rooted update zips from the tbh app is basically the standard route to rooted gb. I've done it multiple times.

    yup. I just used the all in one TBH zip to install the rooted .602 update. The stock update ran pretty good and fast with good battery life but I missed my root apps. Hopefully my battery life will be the same with this method.

    How prescient of you, I put GB on because I wanted to get to Liberty, which was why I was disappointed that the leak I downloaded was un-rootable. I already got the Liberty installer app from the market, I read such good things about it I figured I'd pay for it before I even tried it. I read for hours, man, and I never stumbled across the fact that GB was not currently rootable. I figured I'd just z4 and bam. Everything went so smooth, no boot-looping or anything. I was like XD. Then O_O.
