    Please clarify what you mean by "update 2.3.20 rooted version".

    2.3.20 is the version number for the latest over-the-air firmware/stock ROM update for the Droid 2, based on Android version 2.2. I don't know if there's a pre-rooted version out there but the SBF file I've been using is not rooted. If you flashed this SBF file, you would have to gain root access before you can use Droid Overclock or flash Liberty 1.5. (If I were you I'd wait for the release of Liberty 2.0, anyhow, which is just around the corner.)

    If you mean the Gingerbread leak, I think it is based on Android version 2.3.3, while Motorola's internal version number would be something completely different. You can't run Liberty while you're on Gingerbread (at least not until the wondrous day comes when they roll out a Liberty build based on Gingerbread). I heard that Droid Overclock has just been updated to work with Gingerbread, however.

    Mingaldrichgan, my journey to find GB 2.3.20 took me to this web site, Droid 2 Gingerbread (2.3.3) - Release - PreRooted. I didn't know until you brought it to my attention that GB and Liberty 1.5 are competitors and not that one enhances the performance of the other, I believe. Droid 2 Overclock with its latest edition, would not be granted super user permission running 2.3.20, and thus, failed. Conclusion, is there any benefit to update to 2.3.20, because I am loving liberty 1.5 and all the goodies. I rather wait for the update for Liberty.

    What I was trying to tell you is that I think you've got your version numbers all mixed up. There is no such thing as Gingerbread 2.3.20. Please re-read my earlier post for more details about the different version numbers.

    Liberty is a custom ROM, not just a collection of tweaks or whatever. As an analogy, think of replacing your preinstalled operating system on your computer with something else, say from Windows 7 to Ubuntu. You can't run both at the same time (unless you use an emulator or virtual machine, but that's another matter entirely). So, I guess you could call them competitors, though I would like to think of Liberty as a friendly soul! :)

    Anyway, based on what you've said so far, I'm guessing that whenever you said "2.3.20" you actually mean the rooted Gingerbread leak. Is that right? I haven't tried it myself so I can't speak for it, but there are lots of threads talking about it, so just look around. I'm waiting for Liberty 2.0 myself.
