    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.

    I did not do pre-rooted gingerbread yet. I actually found the OTA update very buggy. well see. but so happy that I am back to original!

    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.
