    i have had a rooted droid 1 for a while now but, as the title suggests my x will arrive later this week. my question is will it come on 2.1 or 2.2? if it comes on 2.1 should i update to 2.2 before rooting? thanks for reading!

    It should come with 2.2 by now. If it doesn't just do the OTA and use z4root to root 2.2

    I just got mine a few days ago and it came with 2.2 on it. It's a breeze to root and unroot.

    Do you prefer the x over the d2?

    Most definitely. I prefer the larger screen. I gave my wife my D2 so it's not like I did away with it altogether.

    I got to play with my brother's D2 and it's nice with the physical keyboard to play emulators but that's about it. The bigger screen on the X far outweighs any advantage the physical keyboard has.

    Yeah the keyboard is nice for emulators but now all the emulators have on screen controls, so there is no need for it. Besides, during the entire time I had my D2, I think I may have used the keyboard once or twice.
