    I manually installed the .588 version of GB a while back. No root. Will I be able to update to the final build version when Verizon finally releases it? Or will I have to go back to froyo to get the latest GB OTA? Thanks....

    I can't remember if gingerbreak will root the .588 build. It's worth a shot. Check here

    If it does work then all you have to do is flash the new rooted OTA from P3's original post here. If it doesn't work then SBF back to froyo and then update using the 2 part updater from that same link.

    Also, moving this to the root forum.

    Gingerbreak worked for rooting. 588. I don't remember if it worked on 591. It didn't work on. 595. And of course it doesn't work on. 596. The easiest way to get to 596 is to sbf back to froyo and flash the two gb 596 files. 596 from tbh is already rooted and the two file method will update your baseband.

    Since the baseband isn't updated I recommend SBF'ing back to Froyo and then installing the 2 part. Its just safer and it will be a clean install.
