    Saw on DroidLife that you need to be rooted first to install.....oh well
    I figured. I don't know any thing about rooting. I guess this might give me a reason to learn.

    Oh man I love the screen rotation animation. 6 hour battery sounds painful. I'll see how mine fairs.

    With Gingerbread can you still tether to your Xoom over bluetooth for data?

    I'd love to root my phone and do it, but I'm the kind of person who would probably brick my phone or it would explode in my hand or something so I guess I'll wait for the OTA.

    Wouldn't that effect Maps and Navigation?
    Maps is effected considerably. Turn the phone south, maps turns north.
    Did quick navigation and it seemed to work ok.

    Noob question. I am rooted now (z4), I know I will loose my root if I load ginger bread. My question is how do i go back to my old rom and being rooted again(dark slide 4.2)? Also to all the people that have tried it, hows battery life?
    You will have to sbf back to stock 2.2.1. Once you do that then root install bootstrap and then flash your rom backup.

    I noticed on the video that there was a 3g hotspot app. Is that a free app like wireless tether?

    Looks pretty nice, but don't think I will be switching. Im running Apex right now, and like it, but in the end will probably go back to Liberty 1.5.

    I am pretty new to all of this and got it to work. Question is, how to get back to stock 2.2?? If I try to return to stock, it stays with this version. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ok so I updated to GB per the method outlined however, I went to SBF back to 2.2.1 and now my phone is stuck on the new red moto logo for bootup. Anyone have any suggestions to unbrick my phone? using rsd lite 4.9 and just downloaded the 2.2.1 (2.3.340) sbf today. it said it loaded but now it wont boot. I tried to get in to recovery however with you hit home+power, it goes to the triangle android logo like it should but the search key or any key for that matter, will not get it to the menu. I can still go into the bootloader menu but again, nothing is different in rsd. not sure if GB changed how the recovery menu works but i kinda think im screwed here. any help is much appreciated!

    do the recovery again and select wipe data. It will clear everything and you will be able to boot up. Happen to me last night. Also for some reason it changed my buttons and had to use the power button to get the blue recovery menu up to wipe the data......was weird

    It figures this would come out just hours after I spend a big chunk of my day tweaking Rubix to get it just the way I like it. Ah well, bring on the GB!

    So far, I'm beyond impressed. I'd never thought I would say this, but, Blur is...well, awesome now. Moto is on the right track.

    I love everything about this so far. Let's hope they keep it up.

    Yeah, looks like a lot of work went into it. Little things like the calendar views, and the menu choices. Even the launcher is smarter when you drop widgets, allowing you to swap places without an open spot.

    HA! That is so funny I wiped Liberty 1.5 (due to battery) and just finished putting the final touches on how I want to try Rubix this time and saw this post....I for one am sticking with Rubix I am enjoying the battery life.

    For dummies, what is the easiest way to upgrade? Mirrors, wiping, firmware, etc. are all above me. Is there a simple link to install?

    The compass took forever to calibrate and when it did its direction was opposite. I.e. turning north turns south. Anyone else seeing this?

    Mine is also doing this but it works fine in landscape mode.

    I'm loving this Gingerbread goodness. I just found the encryption settings and have to say it's about time. Now I can encrypt the phone info as well as the info on my SD card. That's the only thing Android was missing that made me miss my Blackberry days. The best phone decision I've made was getting the X. I can't even remember why I loved my Droid or the DInc now that the X is in my life.
