    Hey guys,

    Just picked up a Droid X tonight and I'm trying to decide if I want to just stay on the official OTA gingerbread or if I should flash another ROM.

    What say you??? If you think I should go with another rom, which one?

    So your phone has the official GB on it now?

    I would just stay stock if you aren't having any problems with the stock rom

    No I haven't updated yet. Because I know the OTA hasn't been rooted yet

    Flash it, you'll be happier with it. Better battery, faster, no bloatware. I love the liberty rom on my d2

    Root it. Either Liberty, apex or Zombie stomped or drew garens roms.
    I have run all but liberty and think the last 3 are all great. right now I am running Lexlite 4.5 which is a .596 rom.

    It was the first .596 rom I found and it is rock solid and fast. I had been running apex before the upgrade and Highly recommend apex also.

    Peace

    Well, I rooted and put liberty 2.1 on it. Even though its the same rom as my droid 2 it feels snappier.

    I have the SBF file for OTA gingerbread and I'm thinking about flashing that just to try it out.

    If I have the updated Froyo SBF, I can just flash back to that if I don't like gingerbread right?

    That's good, because it's my understanding that the official gingerbread release hasn't been rooted yet.
