    So I've rooted my DX and added a bunch of root only apps. I believe I recall reading something at the time of rooting suggesting upgrading to Gingerbread would require something special. I don't think the upgrade is available yet, but i'm just trying to figure out what i'll need to do once it is. Do I need to unroot my phone in order to do the OTA upgrade? Sorry if this is referenced elsewhere on the forum, I tried searching. Any help or direction is much appreciated!! Thanks,

    You would most likely need to unroot to receive the OTA, but I would say "stay rooted" because there will probably be a gingerbread rom out for the droid x before verzion releases the OTA for the droid x.

    Thanks, that leads me to another question...

    So are the different OS releases from google just different ROMS? Does this mean that if i can figure out how to load different custom ROMS onto my DX then i'll never have to worry about receiving over the air updates? Thanks Again! I'm a new poster and really enjoying the willingness of the experts to help us newbies....

    No. Google releases the code, Motorola creates the ROM that Verizon pushes out from said code.

    If I could offer a suggestion, go to the Droid X subforum here, or even to Droid X Forum to learn more. :)
