    I have a friend that I'd like to help get gingerbread 2.3.3 for. I was wonder, if he is at full stock 2.2 or 2.2.1(Whatever latest version there is for d2) can he use this http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/...id-2-gingerbread-2-3-3-release-prerooted.html and just flash it in the clockworkmod recovery and he will then get gingerbread 2.3.3 rooted? Idk how to explain it any better. . . please just reply because I don't want to screw his phone up for me not knowing if it will work. Thanks!

    If he is stock, he needs to be rooted, that's the same method I used, although I was on liberty froyo

    Well he's rooted but was wondering if he's on froyo could he just use this to get to gb. Also how good you think d2 gb is, any bugs?
    Thanks for replying, you're the only one.

    Yes he can use the preroot gb file to get on gingerbread. There are some bugs but I think that your friend will like it. You will have to wipe data to flash the gb file

    Yes. He can use it to go directly to Gingerbread. That's the idea. You bootstrap into recovery, then wipe data and cache. After that, you install from ZIP on SD card and choose the ZIP file. It then upgrades you to Gingerbread.

    There are bugs in the LEDs where they sometimes don't come on when they're supposed to, but if you use DroidLight, you can force them to come on. Also, the wifi is spotty in my experience.

    The d2 has waaaay less bugs than the dx. Personally, i've had 0 issues with gb, all positive. Its very stable. Matter of fact, i had minor bugs with froyo too. GB, if anything, has similar minor bugs. Highly, highly recommend it! Each phone is unique, so you have to try for yourself. In general tho, i've seen much less complaints with the d2 gb leak and the roms built off it.
