    I tried both Pete's root tool and the Droid 4 (motofail) method, both failed but without apparently causing any damage. Some Droid X people report success with using various types of RootKeeper (install *before* doing the update) but it may not be possible to update with that in place (don't know because I forgot to try).

    Can someone rip out the camera app with adb? It's possible even without root.

    adb is present in Pete's Root Tools, under the “tools” subdirectory.

    Code:
    adb pull /system/app/BlurCamera.apk
    adb pull /system/app/BlurCamera.odex

    I'm noticing large performance improvements, but my battery is draining at double time...

    Can't say I'm experiencing bad battery... in fact it appears to be better on mine. And after using it a bit, I can safely say performance is hugely improved from .608.

    I kept my phone, screen on, playing music and GPS with Google Navigator, for a 2 hour car ride, off-charger, and battery was only at 60% when I was done.

    Now, someone just needs to figure out how to root this sucker, or I'll get withdrawal. :)

    Tag for sbf outcomes. The .608 sbf didn't prevent sbf'ing back to Froyo (in fact I think I was one of the first people to test on Rootz) but someone else can be the guinea pig this time xD

    Right, .608 (and the "pre-releases" .606 and .607) didn't have any issue but there were no negative reports. Here we have the experience of the recent Droid X update, where it is pretty clear that several people have really bricked their phones by attempting this. So, this would be being a guinea pig expecting a negative outcome! I am for letting the X community be our guinea pigs!

    There is now an SBF file for the X (which doesn't help for going back to previous versions and for getting root, but gives some safety), we don't even have that yet.

    Just curious soak testers....did the update fix the problem where the keyboard and soft keys did not light up in the dark? Got a razr maxx yesterday and gave my d2g to my wife (her decision, still happily married). I was already used to pushing power button repeatedly to get it to work, but I see her getting upset with this gingerbread bug.

    I'd still say this is a problem with an individual handset, not the firmware.

    I never ever experienced it.

    Only time I've had problems with keyboard lights is with custom roms

    Has anyone taken the update and retained root?
