    Hi everyone. New poster here. I'm interested in rooting my droid x2 and had some questions. I just got the gingerbread update and am running 2.2.3. How would I go about rooting the phone? I've never rooted a phone before. Are there any custom roms available for the new gingerbread update, and if so, how would I go about flashing them? The main reason I want to root my phone is to improve the battery life through undervolting. is there a way to do that?


    Thanks for all the help!

    If You're Already On Gingerbread There Is No Way To Root That Right Now. You Would Need To Flash Back To 2.2.2, Gain Root, And Flash P3Droid's Pre-Root Gingerbread.

    Okay I have no idea how to do that. Will the pre-root gingerbread work the same as the gingerbread that is actually on my phone right now? If so, what steps would I have to go about to do that? From there, can I install another rom, or am I stuck using what i have until someone releases another rom? Also, would flashing back delete all my apps? Thanks for the help!

    Why do you want to root? That may help us to give you a yes/no as to whether you should.

    The major thing, as I said in the OP, is improving the battery life. That, along with the custom roms, titanium backup, tethering, etc. are all reasons why I want to root. I was on the phone for 4 hours yesterday (using it heavily for the internet and texting) and it went from 100 percent battery to 4% battery. I've heard rooting and undervolting seriously improves the battery life which is why I want to give it a go

    Sorry, from your posts so far it was hard to tell what your experience level was. It now appear to be quite a bit higher than it seemed. Go for the rooting now. It could take a long time to get root not using the pre-root method.

    Sorry about that. I understand what rooting does and the benefits of it, i'm just not 100% sure how to do it. From what I understand, I have to flash back to froyo and then root the phone using gingerbreak. After that, I should install the gingerbread root install.zip file. If I do that, can I still keep a custom rom, or do I have to use the rom associated with gingerbread? I'm still not sure how to flash back to froyo. Also, is there any way to back up all my apps for free?

    No. How can we. People are working on it but there isn't any timeline for when the miracle happens. Suck up and deal with it. It's a lot better then having no root at all.

    Thanks for all your help! I really appreciate it. I'm still lost on how exactly to go through this process. Is there a step by step guide? Also, is there a way to back up all my apps so I wont have to redownload them at a later point in time?

    There Are 3 Froyo ROMs And I Think That Affinity And CorteX2 Are Better Than MinX As That Was The First ROM And I Don't Think CJ Updated It Yet. There Is One Gingerbread ROM As Well And I'm Pretty Sure That It's Just Debloated And Tweaks To The Build.Prop File. It's A Matter Of Preference Just Look At The Write Ups And Make A Decision From There. Hope That Helped.
