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

I'm 2.1 now. Root now, or update to 2.2 first?

    I'm a newbie but I want my free wifi tethering! My x is currently 2.1. It says an update to 2.3.15 is available. (I'm assuming this is what gets me the froyo 2.2 firmware?) I told it to remind me in 12 hours.

    Based on the fact that I'm not brilliant... should I let it update now, and then try to root it? Or do you suggest trying the rooting now?
