Ok, here's my problem. I am trying to root my DX after installing the OTA update, 4.5.596. I wanted the official update so I sbf'd back to 2.3.34 yesterday from rooted, and after many failed attempts, finally got Gingerbread to install. Before I continue, I do realize that I could have used the 2 part zip file to go right to rooted GB, but could not get that to work for me. I also found out z4 doesn't work. So, i tried the 'patch' method, and ran into a new problem. After somehow accidentally deleting the entire contents of my SD card, i realized that i couldn't get to recovery mode. I've tried bootstrap for DX, and that won't work until it's rooted. I tried another SD recovery app, same thing, gotta be rooted with superuser permissions. So, my question is; how can i get into recovery mode if I need to be rooted with superuser permissions first? (I have tried booting into recovery with power/search buttons with no luck either) Without recovery mode, how can i install the patch from my SD card that roots gingerbread? It's like i need one before the other, either way. I'd rather not sbf again if i don't HAVE to. Someone please help.
