    I had a samsung fascinate and I wanted a change so 3 days ago I got a Droid X2. So I have a few questions. First question is, how do I apply launcher pro plus as my launcher? I keep trying but I cant make it default launcher. Homeswitcher wont find a default launcher, help? Second question is, gingerbread? Seen a lot of talk about it but havent gotten the update. Is there a download for it somewhere? If so, is it safe and how do I apply it? Third thing is, any customization I can do without root? Im a newb so any help would be appreciated.

    HI, ok so what I did to make a new launcher the default is press the home key and a menu should pop up asking which launcher to load make sure you press the check mark to make it default then press on the launcher pro.

    Next, As for the GB update, according to a soak tester the update should go live this Tuesday or Wednesday. The GB files that are floating around are the same update that you will get eventually as well as a pre-rooted one.

    Lastly, for customizations that do not need root you should try a Google search or visit the app market and try themes for launcher pro.

    depends on if you want the normal GB update or the pre-rooted one.

    I didn't know there was a pre-rooted gb update. Where can I get this also is this the best option if I want to root my phone. or is it better to wait and get the update from verizon then root? My droid is rooted already.

    Also about sbfing.... do I need to download this before I would need it our could I just just download it when I need it?

    Ok here is the link for the stock GB update.
    Official Gingerbread for the Droid X2 - 2.3.3/4.5.1A-DTN-117-15 (Rooted)

    It also has instructions for the pre-rooted GB but follow the other link I posted for that because the other link has a more detailed instructions.

    Oh also one last thing when it says rename the .zip to "update.zip" rename it to "update" (without quotation marks) only. the .zip gets placed automatically most of the time.

    Ok, What you do is, with the power off, hold the power and volume down keys until you see the words fastboot near the top. Now keep pressing volume down key until you see android recovery then press volume up key to select it.
