    ok im about to root my x and i was wondering if i should just root the OTA .602 or sbf to froyo and then use z4root to root and find the 2 part tbh gingerbread files and flash those and get to rooted gingerbread..and let say i dont flash the 2 part files, can i still use prerooted roms? or do i have to do the 2 part tbh files to use those roms..any help would b nice just trying to sort those things out..

    rooting the 602 would be the easiest after reading all that, although not sure which ROMS are supported so far. What is your current ROM status?

    Whatever process makes you the most comfortable. It sounds like you wanna OTA to .602 so go ahead.

    The one step root process for .602 is very easy. I was on a rooted .340 ROM when I decided to try out SSM-602 v.3. So I used the SBF to update to .602 with the .13p radio, and it was also pretty simple. From there I used the one click root method, downloaded D2 Bootstrapper and then installed SSM-602 v.3 from Mobile_Sensi, and I love this ROM. Its very quick and simple, and gets great battery life.

    Either way, SBF .602 or OTA .602.. I think that would be much easier then flashing back to .340 and trying to get a pre-rooted .602, but thats just my opinion.

    SSM-602 v.3 is a great GB based ROM and has almost no bugs, not one that I have found yet. I would look into it.

    Both Sensei and Vortex ROMS are getting alot of attention now because of the MIUI issues w their latest build. Thats good, expansion of ROMs is what keeps the X in high demand developmentally.

    I'm not using either, just been following them. JkdJedi would be a good one to ask, hes using one or the other. I'm on rooted 602 stock until our MIUI fix is released. I hate blur, stock, and blur-ish roms so Im suffering until Im back on MIUI. You can read up on these 2 ROMs in Google.

    I have never used MIUI, but isnt it based on .340 or is it based on .602 just has to be flashed via .340?

    If you flash MIUI, and decide to install another GB based ROM, I would recommend using the SBF method and going back to stock .602 first. It will make sure your starting fresh, and with the correct hardware and firmware to use SSM or Vortex.

    You asked which one between SSM or Vortex is better, and I cant answer that because I have not tried Vortex yet. I know its the developers first ROM, and is very similar to SSM-602 v.3 in the sense that it uses GB and retains some blur functions. I'm sure they are equality as fast and good on battery life. Until more people start testing Vortex we wont know which is better.

    I am very happy with SSM-602 v.3 and it has everything from Stock GB that I like, and has replaced other things that are not as good. I love ADW Launcher, and will use that on pretty much any ROM I flash.
