    Hi everyone. I'm a bit noobish since this is my first Android phone, so please forgive me.

    I rooted my Droid X running 2.1 using the GUI program. I used Root Explorer to rename a few bloatware apps. I did not make any other changes, just installed Titanium Backup and used it to make a backup. To successfully install the OTA update to 2.2, what do I need to do? I read that I need to restore the bloatware. Do I also need to unroot first? I've also read in a couple places something about moving Superuser.apk from bin to xbin. Is that what I need to do to stay rooted in 2.2?

    Thanks in advance for your help and patience. :eek:

    I also say wait for Birdman to release a clean version of the update. You other option is to SBF back to stock and then update. The second option will severely limit your options in the future. I recommend the first. patience.

    I read through that boot loader watch thread and I'm not sure I understand what's going on. What did Moto do to the boot loader?

    Changed the keys so that you CANNOT downgrade back to 2.1. Once you're on 2.2 you're always on 2.2

    They changed the key when they updated the bootloader. Now the 2.1 SBF will not flash because it has the OLD key.

    Oooooohhhh... I see. So if at any point (after installing 2.2) I tried to do a factory reset on the phone, it wouldn't work?
