    so im running rooted gingerbread and i love it so far. I love all of the features and the new look but....

    I really miss Rubix 2.0.1.... i really do. i miss how snappy it was and my setup.

    i really hope drod makes a rubix for gingerbread.

    anyone else feel the same?

    He said he would try but couldn't promise anything.... would be very nice though, I loved rubix when I was on it but missed the themes from liberty.

    At first speed is what all that really mattered to me. This was the case for 2.0-2.2 with Droid 1 as well as my X.

    With Gingerbread 2.3, the features it has and all the glittery looks with the nice new additions of the improved Blur.

    I could care less for speed now, I grew tired of 3rd party launchers... They caused more problems than joy.

    With saying all this. I am a proud user of a Moto Gingerbread device! With the default Moto 2.3 launcher!

    Lastly, I did come from Rubix, and I must say, I'm glad I have Blur back.

    I installed Rubix and got it tweaked to my liking just before all of this Gingerbread stuff blew up, so I'm sticking with that for now :)

    I tried the rooted GB X but wanted to go back to RubiX 2.0.1...little did I know you had to SBF it back. Luckily no problems, and I'm back to RubiX.

    I tried the unrooted GB, and dl'd all the files and was ready to give the rooted GB a shot, but I decided against it cus I really missed the stability and speed of Rubix Focused. I had it OC'd, undervolted, and set up perfectly for me, so I SBF'd, and restored by backup.

    I just didn't get enough out of GB to try the rooted version. It was slightly laggy, and as cool as the new launcher was, I don't really use the app groups, so it didn't matter to me. One thing I did like about GB, though, was the new text cursor. I thought it was much easier to navigate between letters to edit text compared to froyo. I also liked the new calendar.

    Maybe once the rooted GB gets more stable (based on the comments, it seems like a lot of people are having issues with it right now), I'll give it another go...but until then, I'm happy to be back to Rubix =)

    Actually I've heard you can use the Droid 2 bootstrapper to get into recovery on rooted GB, gonna try to do a backup now, if that works I don't see why you couldn't use recovery to go back and forth.

    It wont work because the original nandroid requires files that are replaced by gingie and vise versa.

    My backup just went successfully, and I can still see my backups in recovery, as well as see them on my sdcard. GB didn't mess with them in my case. I haven't tried restoring one yet, but I will tomorrow to try and confirm, unless someone else beats me to it.

    You can't go back with your nandroids or maderstok. It's been tried. You can use TBH 2.3. 340 full update zip but if you want to go back to Gingerbread you must SBF. Mikeinrichmond tried allocate these so he could report on it. As for the market jrummy created a fix that allows the market to show all your apps. I'm sorry I don't have the link but I found it in DX forums in the official quickclock thread. Good luck.

    Edit :and jrummy updated his droid overclock app to support Gingerbread.

    Ok, from rubiX Focused 2.0.1 to GB rooted...I'm actually SBF'ing right now to get back to rubiX. Yes, GB is way faster and smoother than Froyo. I mean, I was like everyone else....WOW!

    How every, rubiX on Froyo still tops it to me. True, with GB I achieved Quadrant scores that I've never seen before on my DX like 2245 @ 1.45GHz LV. The highest I've had with rubiX 19?? (can't remember exactly but I never broke 2K).

    I'll go back to GB when GB based ROM's show up. Best believe that there are folks working on it right now. I'm tempted to get a TB since DRod is working on that now. But I still have a year and I refuse to pay full price ($599?) for it even if I sell my DX.
