Everything seems to be working great. It was lagging a bit right after the install(loading apps, switching between homepage...etc) , but after few reboots and now it works fine.
I did notice one issue.. When using Vignette or Camera360, I can no longer mute the shutter sound. Even with Shutter sound off checked off. However, now I can mute the shutter sound on the built in camera app which I couldn't before. Not sure if this is a GB issue or just my phone...

booberthecat, I installed p3droid's rooted .596 posted elsewhere on these boards.
I've posted in other threads but I might as well chime in here on the "official" thread.
STILL having the east-west reversal in Google Maps/Sky Maps/Nav that has been happening in each GB leak since .588. All third party maps and compass apps have no problem, and when I calibrate the compass, even THAT compass works properly once it turns green.
Let's see if I can remember exactly how it goes. In portrait, Google Maps/Sky Maps reverses east and west. In landscape, Sky Maps works fine but Maps has trouble turning a full 360 and will sort of swing back around as I approach turning from north around to south. It's weird and is certainly an issue with how Google's software is reading the hardware output since, again, third party apps work just fine.

#2 is still an issue, and still annoying... having to long hold and pick from the list for shortcuts is definitely the "scenic route" to adding things to the home screens. Does "Add to Home" work for anyone else?

Found another issue on my rooted .596 X. The "Battery and Data Manager" immediately closes when I try to open it. I didn't freeze that app, so is there something else I froze that could be causing this issue or is this something others are experiencing?

stock un-rooted Froyo updated with posted update.zip.
Only issue I've found so far is with e-mail accounts. I had 3 setup on the phone, and they all show up when I go into Messaging and can get in and read the e-mails fine. The problem is i can't get to or see any of the settings except for the gmail account, nor can I delete them as they don't show up in Accounts.

Sure. Been looking here for what to expect. I may've built up too high an expectation.
Some things certainly seem faster. The text input. The Voice Commands (actually usable now).
Notif per/item dismiss is nice. I think clock no longer wastes room on AM/PM.
But, other things are a step backward, I think:
- Text selection seemed better before. Before, double-tap word, it's selected with the start/end controls. Now, tap word, tap-hold, chose 'Select Word', only then get the start/end controls.
- Dragging lists past their end, used to "stretch/bounce" nicely off the top/bottom. Now. only get a faint blue shadow at list ends.
- Still no way to disable lock screen (NoLock app is not same, since all buttons and BT unlock screen then).
Default Home screen is definitely an improvement, but ADW is still way better.

Rooted DX and GB is now available, what now?
Verizon just pushed the GB update to me, and I have a rooted DX.
When I rooted my phone originally, I used an easy method to do it that did not involve any complicated steps.
Can someone point me to a link with instructions on how to get GB and root my phone again? I would prefer to have a rooted version of what Verizon pushed out to me this morning.

ETA: Found the instructions p3droid provided elsewhere with copies of files for phones in different states. I do not understand what sbf means and going back to stock Froyo. When I rooted previously, I used z4root and it couldn't have been easier. Guess I will have to read up on what sbf is.

Definitely do your research as you can damage your phone if you don't follow the instructions to the letter. The current OTA release of GB (.596) is not rootable at the moment. You have to follow p3droid's instructions and install their pre-rooted GB, which is identical to the OTA release.
My recommendation would be to wait a week or so to see in they come up with a one click root method like Z4Root. If they don't crack it within a week, go ahead and SBF back to Froyo and use p3droid's method 2.

I keep getting "DOWNLOAD UNSUCCESSFUL, PLEASE TRY AGAIN" when trying to download from the market after the GB update.. anyone know how to fix? I have done factory reset.. Clear data, clear cache.. Nothing works. Anyone else having this issue with GB?
Side note.. Its just the Android Market... I can download from Amazon app store just fine..

Did the OTA update this morning. My first impressions:
Does anyone else think that Facebook on Gingerbread looks absolutely atrocious? The news feed is now dark blue and only turns white when you are scrolling. Also, there are big grey areas at the end of comments on statuses and links. It just looks ugly. Glad they're working on a new build.
I think the blue/white GB theme clashes with some apps (ie: Tweetdeck). Would be nice if we could customize the color scheme.
I'm liking the new cursor in the text box. WAY easier to use. Sad that Swype removed the emoticon button.
I'm also having trouble getting the physical buttons below the screen to light up. They light up during the lock screen but seem to stay dark during actual use of the phone.
The shortcuts for phone contacts on the main screen have changed a little. The picture is now smaller and the phone or message button is now larger. (I liked the larger picture.)
I don't like the new text messaging layout. The square, boxy look isn't appealing to me. It is, however, quite the opposite of iOS. Maybe that's what they were going for.
