    Here Are The Steps:

    1. SBF 2.2.2 After It Boots Turn It Back Off.
    2. Get Into Recovery And Factory Reset.
    3. Boot Up And Activate The Phone So It Has Phone And 3G By Dialing *228 Or Clicking The Activate Prompt.
    4. Install Gingerbreak And Root.
    5. Install The Bootstrap Which Is "System Recovery".
    6. Click "Install Recovery"
    **YOU MUST HAVE THE PHONE PLUGGED INTO THE WALL CHARGER AND NOT USB**
    7. Click "Recovery Mode"
    8. At The Green Recovery Screen Scroll Down And Choose "Install Zip From SD Card". (That Means Go Find Where You Put It)
    9. It Takes A While For It To Update About 5 Minutes Then You'll Get An Error. Something Like (Status 7 Failed) This Is Perfectly Fine.


    You're Done Updating, Reboot Phone, It Will Bootloop Once Or Twice.

    Next It Sits At The Droid Eye As If You Installed A New ROM.(Which You Did).

    Last But Not Least, Enjoy That Yummy Rooted Gingerbread, Courtesy Of P3Droid.

    When I used the pre-rooted update, it wiped all of my data. Didn't think it was supposed to do that, lol

    Ok, I know what the common knowledge says regarding the install process but I gotta report this result. I did not wipe before I flashed the .sbf file. The flash did not remove my data and I have had no issues. I did have to re-root and reinstall recovery. All my accounts stayed. These results are reasonable since all of this stuff is on the data partition. I always thought the flash would overwrite my data. I installed P3 droid's rooted update over my not wiped Froyo. It works wonderfully!

    Same here...but anybody noticing some errors? Check the battery usage screen (on the battery data manager) the top grey line is not straight...
    ...not picky, just noticed that.

    So if I already updated to Gingerbread, is it too late or is that SBF file going to downgrade me back to Froyo?

    Im dling the pre rooted now. All I've done with 2.2.2 is install gingerbreak the custom recovery and do the media card trick.

    Will the update undo/erase any of those?

    lol....really? It's only 2.3.3? Not 2.3.4?

    quick comment on the D3 vs X2 comment. There are literally no identical hardware components outside of RAM size and Screen. Even the Dual Core is a different CPU after finding issues with the Tegra's. Notice that the D3, Bionic, and other future dual core's are NOT tegra? There is a reason for that. And now that I start thinking about it I wonder if that is why the update is 2.3.3 and not .4 or .5
