    I'm still on OS 2.2 v2.3.15 w/ root. I used RootMyX2 to root. I was reading that some DX users had to flash the SBF file and then click "Wipe/Reset" and "Clear Cache" for them to receive the 2.3.340 update? Do I still need to flash the SBF or just unroot? RootMyX2 has an unroot button, I obviously just his the unroot button and I should be good, SU and busybox should be removed. Don't I have to remove Clockwork, logwrapper, etc. somehow? I'm not sure what files need to be removed to be fully unrooted. What files do I need to remove and how do I go about doing it? Right now I'm not getting any updates in settings. Yeah, I know the update really doesn't change much, but I'm picky and want to be up to date. Sorry, if this has all be answered before.

    Thanks guys...BUD [​IMG]

    I was on OS 2.2 v2.3.15 w/root. You have to make sure all the apps that were on the phone when you got it are on there before you update. I just rebooted my phone and when it came back on I went to about phone and the update was there. I downloaded it and installed. It removed root but I used z4root and it rooted my phone. Haven't had any problems.

    From what I've read you don't have to remove root, you just have to be on Stock 2.2 rooted and the update will still work subsequently removing your root.

    i don't have all my apps. that's the problem. i deleted some with root explorer, instead of freezing them with TB and I cant remember which ones i removed now.

    so im guessing i need to flash the 3.15 sbf file to get my apps back? i only deleted like 5 apps, just cant remember them. ive tried to go into system and no updates there it says im currently up to date.

    i just want to unroot to be safe, you can always root again. i thought i read somewhere that you have remove Clockwork Recovery and all those files?

    I have all the apps that came stock on the x saved to my comp. Too bad you can't remember which ones you deleted.

    Thanks, I did read that it is not gingerbread but v2.3.340 update. I think it is just a matter of when they let our phones update so when a 'batch' of phones is authorized to upgrade and my phone is in it? perhaps? IDK. I will keep reading.

    I was rooted on 2.3.15 rooted and grabbed the update from XDA's and put the update onto SDCard rebooted to recovery and applied update.zip and then re-rooted with z4root seems good but still downloading the Madden2011 but the performance of the phone has definately gone up for me

    Root is irrelevant and so is clockwork. All you need to do is be stock with all bloatware intact.

    ok so since root and clockwork is irrelevant, why am i not receiving the update? does it just go out in spurts? are the initial updates sent to a small group, testers or something?

    i found this update.zip on xda-developers - View Single Post - Droid X 2.3.340 Update for 2.3.340 (the update is 25.74mb). for me to use this do i need to SBF back to stock 2.2 3.15, since i deleted apps on my phone? i cant remember what apps i deleted, so i cant restore the "bloatware"? im already on 3.15 but like i said i deleted apps like an idiot.

    one more thing...is this update.zip going around a bad idea to flash? it seems like some are getting it to work and some aren't.

    TBH already has ROM with the new update.

    Actually yes. Read in another thread on here that the update was only rolling out to a test group f for now.

    If you updated to a leaked 340 there is no stable way back to stock. Think you will have to wait for black hat to hook us up. I an in the same boat.

    2 things.

    1. So, that update.zip over at XDA is just a leak?

    I just restored back to stock 2.2 w/ root. I now have all my bloatware back. Will I now be able to receive the update, once it's sent out?

    EDIT: over at xda he posted a screenshot showing that the update worked...hmm?

    Technically yes it was a leak since it wasn't intended to be sent out by the carrier. It was only supposed to be sent to the test group. As for the second question, yes you should be able to receive the update when it rolls out as long as you stay stock like you are now.

    I thought since this was a leak of an official update that it actually updated the kernel and bootloader and we couldn't go back as a result. That Abe guy said as much.

    This stuff all moves very fast and changes every day so I could well be wrong. I hope I am. Would you mid posting your kernel info and whatnot and have someone who never modded tell us if its clean? Then let me know what you did. Thanks!
