1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I lost root access after the recent OTA update. Previously I used gingerbreak (Version 1.2) to root the X2, and now I don't know what to use/do to regain root access. Mind you I am sort of a noob when it comes to android so I would greatly appreciate details! Thanks!

    EDIT: I think I found my solution. I am going to SBF back to 2.2.2

    After that, root my phone with Gingerbreak.

    Then update to a pre-rooted version of Gingerbread.

    I don't know if this will work, but after 8 hours of research I'm hoping this is my answer. Thanks for the help.

    Gingerbread

    I ended up finding that! I install prerooted gingerbread but am still not happy . the phone seems to run better pre update. And since they didnt fix the clipboard ,copy paste, i still dont really have a reason to even keep it. I think I am going to restore to pre update. Thank you though for that first post. I thought i was stuck with a phone I definitly wasnt happy with.
