    Now I have the unrooted Gingerbread trying to install but I keep declining it as it was sent OTA....

    So what do I do?

    Is there a better root than Z4? I dont seem to have recovery to flash new roms... when I hot X my phone boots up to a trianlge with a ! instead of recovery that let me flash roms

    Also where is the link to rooted gingerbread ?

    And how do i install it once I get it?

    I'm kinda confused about what you're asking, but I'm pretty sure you can root the OTA GB using the same method for the D3. Hope that helps you

    Use the 1 click root that's used for the Droid 3. I think it's a temporary root though..

    No its permanent root. Put this on your pc desktop and unzip. Run the one click file in there and follow the directions. Plug in the phone (make sure usb debugging is checked.) It may take a few tries, but it'll work.

    Do the OTA update, Z4 is not compatible with D2GB, so you need to use one click root for D3.

    I know when I was on the leak I could never get it to work. I haven't tried it with rooted OTA yet though.

    Sorry I don't use wifi tether, but you can try the latest beta build. It may be updated to work with the ota if yours isn't working. I'll post the link. Make sure you go into wifi tether settings and choose your device as well!
