    i posted a thread about my issues that no one has replied to, guess there is NO FIX for this other than giving up on gb. I have tried stock rooted and all GB based roms I can find, same major issue. Seems all the issue I hear about on the droid x which i have. guess its back to Froyo for me :( so much for my mobile netflix

    I have upgraded to Gingerbread, and there are the pluses, and minuses. Now, I'm currently in Germany and I don't have 3G here, but after I upgraded, the same signal I got before upgrading and to having it now, is weaker. I stay in the same spot with my phone, and I don't get connection. This literally started happening as I reset my phone for the update. Once I started GB up, my screen kept going black, as I said on one of my other posts, then when I restarted my phone thousands of times (4 or 5) it worked, then I tried using my app killer, then opened my app drawer, did that, opened an app, and blackness, once again. Now that I have restarted my phone quite a sufficient amount of times, GB looks good. My yahoo accounts don't connect though, it just reminded me of that actually. I personally don't believe the GB is the problem to my wifi connection, but nothing has changed, and still, in the same spot I always used to be and get a excellent signal, it cuts out constantly. But, past the issues, and without knowing what it will do to my 3G and cellphone coberage, GB looks slick, but I plan on re-rooting my phone again, but you need to go through some more steps this time, but it looks good and is a great new look. Try it out yourself.

    My X runs great on GB. The OTA sucks though.

    The tethering patch works well for me, however I hated stock GB so I switched ASOP Liberty and love it.

    @Idopa you might should have said so before now, all your post brag about how well it runs on your droid 2. Makes your post seem pointless and off topic. Just saying
