    So, I was one of the stupid ones who jumped right to the leaked 2.3 Gingerbread (without backing up) and lost my root...


    Not exactly sure what to do to get root access back :(

    you will have to sbf back to froyo and then flash the pre rooted gingerbread.

    Dang....you are fast dude. He's right man....SBF and then flash the right one. Have fundancedroid

    Note.....ALWAYS WIPE when installing ROM's.....that's my rule of thumb.

    is the pre-rooted gb identical to the unrooted version (except for root access) ?

    i have a d2g, but i got a dx. so i paid for the bootstrap recovery app for the d2. can i use this app on the dx, or will i also have to buy the dx bootstrap ?

    The D2 bootstrap will work just fine on the DX.

    I had the unrooted gb and am running the pre-rooted one right now and it feels like unrooted one seems more stable. I believe the pre-rooted one has the notification light bug fixed. Don't know if there are any other differences.

    You can try to put the d2 bootstrap apk from your d2g on your dx's sd card and see if it will work on the dx; otherwise you will have to buy the d2 bootstrap for the dx. TBH says that the dx bootstrap won't work.

    i tried the gb build thats posted over in my droid world, but its not. 588 .... its .573.

    so far, not very impressed with it. had a few restarts, some lagging, its not as fluid as the youtube video might have had one believe.

    also, linked contacts is dead in this build ... whats up with that? i liked having linked contacts with fb profiles ....
