    There's a lot of information on the forums about the new GB release and how to get to it from multiple places and I am thoroughly confused. I just got a replacement Droid X in the mail today so it is completely stock blur 2.3.340, no root, no anything. All I want to do is Install the Apex 2.0.0 ROM and to do that i need to be on GB. I just don't know how to get there from where i am

    Basically I just want some simple instructions on how to get to the new Apex ROM from stock, unrooted blur.

    Nope. Not out yet. And Wardy, if you want that Gingerbread OTA when it does come out, you have to be on bone stock .340 to get it.

    Can anyone help with the original question - how to go from stock 2.3.340 to GB?
    Thanks.

    Here is what I did just yesterday to get to .595:
    - SBF back to 2.3.340
    - Root with z4root, install bootstrap
    - Install original GB leak (was it .571? I don't remember. Edit: just read that .588 works as well). I'm not sure if the other ones are full system files or just the patches for the original leak. .595 is a patch for sure.
    - Install bootstrap again. If you use Droid X bootstrap, make sure USB debugging is disabled. Droid 2 version should work fine in any case.
    - Apply .595 leak

    Done
    I didn't include any links to other forums because I don't know if they are allowed.
