    So, I really think that Gingerbread is quite the OS but there are a ton of bugs.. So far heres what Ive gotten from the releases from TBH:
    1) Don't deodex, something is conflicting with it and the phone is locking up as if all of the RAM and CPU is in use, and it will be really hard to get the phone back and running without SBF
    2) Remove any push to talk applications, there are rumors floating around that these applications are causing part of this lockup due to a service they run at the boot.
    3) Super user is buggy on the rooted version, it seems that sometimes it will lock up the phone if it doesnt like what youre doing

    But I also started this thread so that people could drop some crazy cool stuff that they've done with GB so far.. Its awesome.. Also if you need any help with anything ive had my fair share of experiences with the OS as I have flashed between it like 15 times because of all the lockups..

    Fire away.. what do you love what do you hate?!

    Sorry to hear that you are having issues. For me - it is all good. It is fast, stable, and whole lots of sweetness.

    Hmmm...cant speak to the issues you seem to be having, as my install of the TBH Pre-Rooted and DeoDexed GB release is tooling right along like it should.

    Now, i did have some issues on first install, but I chalked that up to not quite fully following the install instructions...I was on Liberty v1.5 and chose to not SBF back to stock, instead I just flashed back to a back-up I had of stock rooted...and that wasnt the best idea... Needless to say, I had some issues...slow boot time, glitchy start-up, app drawer freaking out etc etc...

    I fixed all these issues by going back in through CWM and wiping data and cache. After that, my phone was zipping along nicely. Last night I went ahead and flashed the DeoDexed zip over the top and have had 0 issues so far.

    I don't know if I downloaded the od or de 2.3 leak but it was pre-rooted. Did the whole thing from the pc and only took about an hour for everything. Worked like a charm and everything seems to be running smooth. Granted this a non-activated device that I picked up just to mess with. So I have no idea about issues related to calls, sms, or 3g. No issues so far and everything seems to work fine. I got everything from How to: Get Rooted Gingerbread on DROID X - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog and didn't say anything about odexed? I do find it hard to determine opened and unopened gmail though. The shading is very similar and you really have to look. Other than that all is well over here.

    I am also running the deodexed rooted Gingerbread and have zero issues. In fact, this is the most stable my phone has been. I did SBF'ed back to stock Froyo and wiped data/cache before installing Gingerbread.

    Been running deodexed since release and have had only 1 lockup (when installing a Rock Band 200MB apk). Way more stable than when I was using Liberty.

    I'm not sure if it's just me, but the deodexed version felt a little bit slower at first. Can't tell if it's any slower now.

    +1 to the guy who said that the gmail is hard to determine open and unopened.. Said the same thing to myself.. About to flash to deodexed after a nandroid backup, I could go for the honeycomb theme right about now.

    I downloaded GB root link straight to phone from Droid World then wiped and downloaded deodexed from same site straight to phone. If I remember correctly, I did have a boot loop issue at first and had to factory reset wth pwr, home, and both volume buttons. However, it has worked smooth as hell ever since!

    Came from blurless Darkslide, did not SBF, flashed rooted GB first as an update, the next day deodexed came up, flashed that as well. Not a single issue, not a single reboot. Everything works. I think people have issues when they reinstall system apps or data (major cause of issues) or batch reinstall user apps + data, instead of selectively go app by app and re-install data only for market-reinstalled user apps. Already froze lots of apps and services and see no issues. Best battery life and speed ever on my X, and I've ran multiple blur and blurless ROMS. No more Froyo.
    Good luck to everyone.

    I'm having issues installing the deodexed version. As a matter of fact I'm having issues installing ANY .zip from sd. In bootstrap recovery, I just keep trying and the install aborts every time. Any ideas? help!
