    OK I just SBF'd and am now stock Froyo 2.2.1 2.3.340 w/e w/e

    Should I wait for OTA? Is there an auto root device like z4 for the OTA yet?

    What are my other options...I was reading here
    Official DX Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.596) Release Thread - Something for everyone

    but I am not sure which set of instructions applies to me since the organization of that thread seems to be wierd... Is it the last set of steps like this that I need to do??

    Full Stock Version (Signed) - Phone must be completely stock
    You will install this file using the stock Recovery of the device.

    md5sum:
    file size :

    Mirror 1: Download Now

    What are the step by steps to install it? What is the "stock recovery" how do I install the .zip on the phone, or

    Root with Z4, download the 2 part file, use the Droid2 bootstrap to get into recovery, install the zip files IN ORDER and then reboot.

    DON'T FORGET TO BACKUP YOUR DATA BEFORE YOU GO INTO RECOVERY. ALSO DO A DATA WIPE BEFORE YOU INSTALL THE ZIP FILES.

    Good luck

    You don't have to do a backup if you have already sbf'd back to stock. Backing up my apps is something I always do using Titanium because it is faster and I don't lose any information.

    Also, most people who have problems with ROMs don't data wipe, so its your call. Some have been lucky without wiping and others have had issues.
