1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
