    I have a rooted Droid X on Froyo and am wanting to move to Gingerbread Prerooted.

    I downloaded GB prerooted zip to the root of my SD card. I have the Bootstrapped app downloaded.

    I was told to run bootstrapper and install GB prerooted because my phone was already rooted.

    When I ran bootstrapper I got a funky screen and couldn't move from it. The second time the screen stayed black. Both times I got back to Froyo rooted with a battery pull.

    What must I do, step by step, to get Gingerbread prerooted on this DX?

    You bootstrapped the recovery, and then booted into recovery?

    You might want to read these threads before doing anything!

    Correction. We discovered as long as you turn off USB debugging, you can use the X bootstrap

    I watched a video in U-Tube where Bootstrap was initialized and used to install Gingerbread Prerooted.

    Does ANYONE know of a step by step guide on how to install Gingerbread PreRooted?
