    It isn't available yet.
    You would need to SBF back to froyo and then update with a pre-rooted gingerbread

    Gonna take time. Just wait. It will be out soon enough. Likely a couple of days. We have some smart users here on this board :)

    I find it a bit confusing when there are some places that have articles saying there is a root but you have to do all this **** with the root files on the sd and everything. I though that SuperOneClick had a GB root using Gingerbreak but it's not working for me. I actually just rooted my DX the day before the OTA update came out. So now I have all the great rooted apps sitting on my phone while I wait for the new root. Bummer....

    Like the guy said above gotta wait. Waiting is okay as long as it doesn't take forever.

    Team black hat released a rooted version. The ota has yet to be rooted.
