    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.

    I'm just saying but wow, I'm baffled at everyone who is perfectly fine with downgrading.

    People out there just need a little patience and just try the GB rom out for a few days and by them a custom rom will be out. Then you wont have to go through the long sbf process all over again just to get that new custom GB rom.

    How is it a downgrade to go back to all the bloat and blur that still drains battery? Why is it a downgrade to have what we should be able to have already, a stock (as close as we can get with the bootloader locked anyways) rom?

    Oh I know what you're saying. I had to sleep on it as to whether or not I was going to revert back to rubiX. I haven't had any issues with Launcher Pro. When I had ADW I had no issues either. I tested GB and yes I actually like it way more than anticipated. But just like when it was first released, yeah, I dl'ed but didn't install it. Then came the lil issues of no root, then once rooted no recovery. Yes, I know it's been fixed...I had all the fixes in place. For me rubiX is in the sweet spot for me. But just as DRod has moved on I am ready to move on as soon as someone has a stable GB ROM for us.

    The more I talk about it the more I want to switch back. I know I had to sbf to get back to rubiX but it's really not a big deal for me. i have plenty of time to do this stuff at work...LOL!

    But again, I feel what you're saying.
