    HAHA, thats what I'm saying.

    Anywho, been reading the forums about the GB release and it looks like the GB release is pretty amazing. They even have good things to say about Blur. I'm backing up my phone now and am going to put it on my phone.

    Forgive me, I am relatively new to Roms and flashing and all that jazz. My x is currently running gummy jar, will running this remove my current rom from my phone? What advantages will gb have over my current setup up, and will I be able to update my phone normally when the official update is sent out?

    Have fun folks! This is a really great build and marks a major turning point for Motorola and the Droid series devices. Motorola deserves a lot of credit for finally getting many things right with the new Blur.

    TBH is thrilled to be able to bring this to the community several weeks early and let everyone see and enjoy the results. Lots of work still to be done to get root and continue development but this is real new life blood for the DX and D2.

    We should all be very happy about this.

    Oh...and you're welcome! ;)

    I did this last night and it replaced the bloat programs I previously uninstalled. No biggie
    Seems fine now. Everything works.
    My root is still intact.
    I have the sync circle arrows constantly up top now. Not sure what could be syncing, my stuff is all still there from before.

    Any ideas?
    Tried power cycling already.

    this didnt fix the stupid double unlock when using pattern lock though

    Better Blur? Yes.

    Do I like it? I would say yes IF and ONLY IF I had the option to uninstall some of it. Not all of it, just some of it. (I don't mean Blockbuster, but some of the social networking crap that I just don't want to have bogging my phone down.) But yes, it is MUCH better. Kudos to Moto for improvement. :)

    You still have root? this would be good info to share. I thought that root had not been achieved yet.

    So do you need root to install this? or just the bootstrap app?

    Well, I put GB on my DX and am currently SBFing back so I can put Rubix back on my phone. Did I like GB, yes. But I will wait until a root is found for this. I guess I just do too many things that require root access. Once a root method is found, I will go back. But I agree with several of you, the new BLur is actually very nice. I will probably end up using Blur instead of LauncherPro..until a vanilla GB ROM is made that his.

    Sweetnessssss. I'm loving the leak. Its quick, the blur is finally just about what it needs to be, very nice little extras to make the phone feel great.

    I'm heating up though! anyone else had an issue with temp. I didn't check to see what the temp go up to, but it was hotter to the touch then my X has ever been.

    I know that people/dev's can do great things but for now this is the way to be. Finally an update (leak) that makes a device so awesome that maybe the X wouldn't need ROMs. I know the idea is always bigger, faster, stronger but this just feels right.

    I am downloading but will delete if it causes a loss of root.
