[How To] go from stock Froyo to Gingerbread .595 deodexed
I posted a version of this over on MDW and figured this might help people here as well.
This was how I upgraded based on the instructions of P3Droid in all of his posts for the various leaks that he released to us. It is my first time organizing this so please tell me if you see anything wrong or if you see something that I should add.
To start you will need some files:
Move all of these files to the root of your SD card
These are links to threads or locations for the files.
These are files for your PC

Froyo Full SBF file
And if you don't have the drivers for your PC yet or
These are the steps I took to bring my Droid X to Gingerbread:
1. SBF Your phone! if you don't know how to do that then you need to read Updated SBF instructions or if you prefer the
2. skip adding accounts when you first boot up
3. install z4root from SD and do permanent root
4. install D2Bootstrapper from SD
5. Boot into CWM
a. install parts 1, 2, 3 of .5887. skip google account sign in and reinstall D2Bootstrap
b. use the back button and wipe/factory reset 3 times for good measure(I just have a complex)
8. Boot into CWM again
a. Install .595 deodexed zip9. Reboot
b. wipe/factory reset again 3 times(again overkill)
10. Install the latest
12. Enjoy your upgraded Droid X!
I take no responsibility if you screw up and damage your phone. You are using these directions at your own risk.

I was actually just about to post this and paste the link to the mydroidworld thread, but but this came up in the "related threads" box.
Great guide, sage! I used this last night and didn't run into any problems at all. You made it very easy. Thank you!Sanyo Katana > BB Curve > BB Storm1 > Droid X > Galaxy Nexus

Hopefully this will cut down on some of the new threads being posted daily about these topics. Pushes older posts that alot of us reference further down the line,lolI am now in the Galaxy Nexus member's club as of Aug 2012. Late to the party, but well before it shuts down!

I'm on .588, and not really having any problems with it. Plus, I haven't rooted, so no Titanium, so no easy restore if I update.
To those of you running .595: Is it worth it? I don't have any real problems where I am (other than unrooted-ness) should I just wait for the OTA (and the root that follows it) since I'd have to SBF back anyway?
Thanks all for your opinions.
