    Official Gingerbread for the Droid X2 - 2.3.3/4.5.1A-DTN-117-15 (Rooted)


    Verizon has decided to push out an official test of Gingerbread to the soak group. We have taken this update and pre-rooted for all of the rooted users out there. Please follow the directions carefully to make sure that your upgrade goes seamlessly. If something does go wrong don't sweat it, this update does update the bootloader but it does not block downgrading using the leaked sbf file that can be found below.

    Directions:

    To use either update your phone must be on stock firmware. If you have removed items and can not restore them you will need to use the sbf file leaked by daywalker04. The file is found below. You will need to use RSDLite 5.0 or higher to flash this file to your phone.

    I followed all the directions, I had the new gingerbread pre rooted and it was working fine. I used titanium backup to get all my apps and everything restored. I also applied the v6 supercharge script. When I went to restart the phone, it would get stuck in the part where it says "Droid", it would keep repeating "Droid" until I pull out the battery. Anyone know what went wrong?

    EDIT: I did a reset and it seems fine, I'm going to restore my apps only this time and see if i run into any problems.

    Everytime i flash a new rom or install any updates I like to do a factory/ data reset. Seems like i have less bugs doing it that way.

    I have my X2 on this update pr-rooted with all my bloat-ware removed, my phone is now screaming fast.

    If anyone has problem with homescreen lag, try using LauncherPro. To this day whether its Froyo or Gingerbread, my X and X2 only transition smoothly with LauncherPro. ADW always lagged for me along with the stock home. If you're not happy with your home screen speed, try it! Any friends I have with X's were so happy when I installed it on theirs.

    What if you were never rooted and installed the regular gingerbread 2.3.3 update, is there a way for me to go back or install the pre-rooted gingerbread 2.3.3 version?

    Directions: Pre-Rooted Update Zip

    1) Place the file from below on the root of your sdcard.
    2) Enter bootstrap recovery
    3) Select install update.zip from sdcard (or something similar)
    4) Navigate to and install the zip

    Download 1:Download



    When I perform these steps, the recovery console tells me that the signature verification on update.zip failed. Any advice?
