    I did alot of searching and couldn't find an answer. Did the update and tried to use wireless tether and it said I wasn't rooted. Z4 root force closes everytime I try to root. No matter if I choose temporary permanent or unroot. Disconnected the battery, made sure usb debugging is selected and even reinstalled the z4 app. Please help!

    If you took the 2.3.3 Gingerbread update, you are not able to be rooted. There is no current way to root stock Droid X Gingerbread. You have to SBF with RSD Lite 4.9 back to 2.2.1 version 2.3.340 and then do a factory reset. Then you root with Z4Root and install the Droid 2 Bootstrap. Then go to Mydroidwrold and download the patched method two-part install zips, and then you'll have rooted 2.3.3 Droid X Gingerbread.

    You can SBF back to Froyo. If you want GB with root use the leaked 596. I think TBH has it in a 2 part zip.

    Gingerbreak is an option for root if you want to run one of the Gingerbread leaks. I believe it worked up until the .595 leak.
