I keep seeing people saying they have Zv6 or Zv7 but also have OS 2.2.2 or 2.2.1

I just want to be sure i dont brick my phone which I dont think i can do just by applying the root exploit, but i dont want to screw up my phone if Gingerbreak wont work with Zv4.

OK so it seems Zv4 is stock 2.2.1, and without hacking it, 2.2.2 isnt available for Zv4 optimus phones? is it ok to apply Gingerbreak to a zv4 2.2.1? I love my phone. i have no problems with it whatsoever..everything works perfectly and pretty fast too with the stock ROM. but i just want to make some minor changes like the startup sound.. startup screen etc without flashing a hacked ROM or Kernel etc..
You do not need to upgrade to root. Since your on 2.2.1 u will need to use gingerbreak to root. 2.2.2 uses a different root method.
