Yes... this might be a monumental, earth shattering decision!
Do I stick with recently rooted 2.2 or go to the latest Gingerbread on my Dinc. I rooted my phone with the great instructions found here on this sticky: "How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off." I now have 2.2 rooted, and seemingly working fine. A little more background: I immediately started receiving the Gingerbread push. After trying to ignore it, I finally gave in. Instead of updating like it said it was going to do, it immediately went back to 2.2, said I was up to date with no updates available. So playing around with it, trying to get back to Gingerbread (rooted), I bricked it, or so I thought!
Thanks to Scotty and SDraw, after a day or so of panic, I was able to get the phone working again... back to rooted 2.2 However, I've noticed that the keyboard I've grown accustomed to, the Gingerbread keyboard, does not "stick", after a while, I always have to re-select it in the keyboard settings. Also, I realize that there are probably some other enhancements with the latest Gingerbread.
I know all the answers I need are probably found on this forum, and I've read through a lot these past few days and will continue to do so! However, many of the threads are a little dated by tech advancement standards (after all, this phone is a relic, right???
) and contain some problems people have encountered. Also, some of the older links no longer work. I remember seeing one post that indicates I might be able to go to the latest Gingerbread with just one ROM.
So... I'm just looking for the latest, easiest, most reliable, way to get to GB (rooted). Or are there those that think I might be best sticking with 2.2? BTW... my phone is S-Off. One thing is sure, thanks to the fine folks on this board, I'm not exactly terrified anymore of bricking the phone! If you're bored, or have had similar problems, you can see my trials, tribulations, and triumph on the last page of the above mentioned thread. In the end, the solution was not in the least bit complicated.
Thanks for reading all of this. I tend to talk too much! Your comments, and assistance if possible, are greatly appreciated!!
