    OK so i was on another forum site a month ago and i attempted to root my Droid x to the gingerbread update before it was released to the public and it seemed like i successfully rooted my phone and after a couple days it started to lag and freeze for a hour or two at a time. so i decided i wanted to buy a couple other apps. one app i used in the process of rooting my phone was called 'Droid X Bootstrap' and i also used a program called 'Z4root'. thats what 'rooted' my phone, i followed the instructions to a T and i guess one way to prove your phone is rooted is look for the superuser program which should come with the root. when i found i didn't have that app i decided after a month to buy and download 'Droid Overclock'. That program didn't work either it keeps telling me root required but my phones appearance and boot looks just like the supposed gingerbread that was leaked. so i have trying very hard to figure out how to repair my phone and i went to do the hard boot the power and the home button for five seconds and then another problem occurs which is the android is there with the envelope then that envelope turns into a triangle with an '!' in the middle of it and to turn my phone back on i have to pull the battery and put it back in. my question is how do i get rid of this 'gingerbread' i mean my phone is fully functional with the occasional freeze when i actually need my phone for something important..

    this is my about phone information in case it might be helpful:

    System Version: 4.5.573.MB810.Verizon.en.US

    Model Number: DORIDX

    Android Version: 2.3.3

    Baceband version: BP_C_01.09.07P

    Kernal Version:
    2.6.32.9-g5a891f6
    w30471@il93lnxdroid42 #1

    Build Number: 4.5.1_57_dx5-3

    ERI Version:5

    PRL version: 52220

    any help to figure out why my phone is doing this and/or a solution thanks very much everyone. http://img.droidforums.net/forum/images/smilies/blackdroid.gif

    You have to sbf back to froyo. But there is a rooted gb leak. Don't know if z4root will work on nonrooted gb.

    I'm about 99% sure you flashed the inital Gingerbread leak that was released by P3Droid that was missing a custom recovery and did not have root access.
