    I Know That I Have To Restart The Launcher (I'm Using ADW) Every Time I Install, Delete, Or Freeze With TiBu To Refresh The App Drawer And Show The Icon(s) Or Remove Them.

    Does noone bother to root the long hard way anymore?

    I remember awhile ago, one of the benefits of rooting the hard way was that you would always keep it regardless of updates.

    Wouldn't stuff like Gingerbreak be susceptible to failing if/when the phone is updated?

    There is no other way to root the X2 except for using gingerbreak.

    Sbf

    From what I've read so far, it looks like your going to have to SBF to factory settings, I would wait a little longer before I messed with MotoBlur, these phones(x and X2) look similar, but under the hood they are completely different

    X2 noob

    Whats up everybody? Im new to the forum so be gentle. I just rooted my X2 with Gingerbreak and now I am officially running the V^ supercharger script. First question, how do I check status of my supercharger because it seems to need a higher setting. I have it now running on 3 - but not aggresive and wanted to hear what you guys thought. Second, what is CyanogenMod? It seems to be popular amongst supercharged folks.

    I appreciate any advice offered.

    If You're Running Update8 Which You Should Be, It's Option 1.

    "Cyanogenmod is a customized, aftermarket firmware distribution for select Android devices.
    Intended as a replacement for the software (also known as the "firmware" or "ROM") that comes factory installed on your smartphone, CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project"

    Good Luck.

    Used Gingerbreak 1.2 worked great for me. Used the APK. I think there is a PC version too.
