Default [Q] Can anyone help me root my 2.3.3 G2x?

Hi,

I know some of you guys are tired of hearing this question but I really need the right help because I've been browsing over the several threads of rooting the G2x and I'm really confused because there's so many ways to do it and I don't know which one is best since now my phone is upgraded to 2.3.3. I also don't know which ROM is the best. Can anyone help me how to root and which ROM to use in your opinion? Sorry that I'm a noob!

I noticed doing this that my camera went hazy,I could tell just by looking through the phone.The pics came out that way too.I went ahead and installed my back-up that was made and now my camera is fine.
If you find out a fix or if this happens for you let me know.


Thanks

Did you have any problems rooting and flashing the phone using the video?

I noticed in the comment it said

"UPDATE 10/3/11
Flashing the ROM at the end may not work if you have already flashed the updated ROM from T-Mobile. There have been a couple reports of problems, though it has been few. This is why it is important to make a nandroid backup!!!"

and I currently have the T-Mobile update to gingerbread installed...just wondering if that would cause any problems.

Hey If you guys are looking for a ROM that really kicks ass try weapon g2x by whitehawx it is the most stable with the best battery life and the best part is it is still based on the stock 2.3.3 so everything works!!!! You can even flash the original LG camera app that came with the g23x before they screwed it up with the GB update. That camera is far superior to any other camera I have seen on any phone. So is that ROM. It has the toggles in the notification area so you dont have to use widgets for everything. If you really want fast use faux's OC/uv kernel that way you can overclock it to 1.5 Ghz then the phone really flys. Weapon has a little less customization than cm but you have alot of stability and battery life and you dont have to flash a new one evry night it is done.

I ened up switching to Tsuqi yesterday.Using weapon my wifi and data was as slow as dial up.No clue why either I wiped wiped wiped flashed a few different times still the same.So far Tsuqi is running smooth as silk.Stock camera not alot of goodies as CM7 but works great for what I need.every device is different I guess.Im willing to try anything though lol
I noticed too using weapons and Tsugi I have to use the stock messager to send pics through text.I liked using Gosms but it wont send the pics through.
