    Gingerbreak is the easiest way to root. then i would install rom manager and use it to install recovery and load the rom.

    I got a Bionic when they became available and passed my Droid on to my wife. I had the Droid for almost two years and was a "serial flasher". I put more roms on that thing than "Carter had little liver pills" (anyone old enough to remember??) and I never found a GingerBread rom that would run totally, 100% stable and trouble free. I ended up going back to Chevy's SS 4.96. It's still on our Droid and the wife never has any issues with it. YMMV.

    Good luck.

    I sold my x2 while it still had some value and replaced it with a d1 to hold me over to the GNex. I didn't even try flashing a GB rom. I'm running CM6, and it runs pretty darn good.
