I have 4.5.588? What is the correct process to get the new update? Or is it even worth it?
.595 was worth it lol. Just dl the rooted/deodex or odex .596 zip and flash it.
I am still pretty new at this...
What is deodex or odex?
Do I have to root to install them or are they just install files?
IF I am correct, you will have to root, use GingerBreak
.591 was worth it too lol...
but as for the OP...yes its totally worth it...gonna need to be rooted..or you will have to SBF back to Froyo...your choice...either way works
What is easier for this noob? lol!
I would rather not lose everything...
Either way is easy, just ask for help and you'll get it. Easy.
If I sbf do I lose everything?
No, you lose only that which is in internal memory, such as personal settings. You should make a backup through your market app to get your apps back, or if you have titanium backup, that is a better way to go.
Your SD card will NOT be affected at all unless you wipe it yourself.
When you reactivate your device, it will guide you through the reload on all your apps that you d/; from the market, so you'll get those back.
If just root it can I just launch the installer if I dont SBF. Would rather not have to rebuild the phone!
That is mu understanding, but I haven't done it that way yet so it's all heresay...
Wait, what? did you mean .588 or .558? I think I'm not the only one with typing dyslexia...lol
that makes more sense now...haha! I was wondering if my eyeballs were f-ing with me.
GingerBreak should work fine, and after that, you can upgrade to the new "ROM" with no issues
So you didn't install the rooted .588?? :O
nah. no need to wipe anything. Just install the new system over what you've got. Do this though. go to settings -> about phone and make sure your baseband ends in .12p. If not let me know
Then go here and download one of the first two (odexed vs deodexed) and flash right over it in Clockworkmod recovery. G2G
This article explains Odexed vs. Deodexed VERY well and can help you decided what you want. tl;dr if you want to theme your GB install deodexed is the way to go.
Either way, I usually go for deodex, since I never know if I'm gonna want to mess with stuff
Here's your update instructions: Official DX Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.596) Release Thread - Something for everyone
If you're not rooted, you'll want gingerbreak too: [26.04.2011][v1.2] GingerBreak APK (root for GingerBread) - xda-developers
colchiro, is it beer-thirty yet?
I think it was beer thirty HOURS ago. I'm ready for the next shift to take over.
Yes baseband is .12P
Neat so I just need the Zip and Im good sweet!
Any reason not to use the Deodex?
Do I have to be rooted just to install GB?
Another satisfied customer.
Last one out catch the lights, ok?
If you want to install some mods then I would say use the Deodexed.
If not and you plan on running it stock until you find a nice GB rom to play with run the odexed. It will be slightly faster, though not really that noticeable. I always go with the deodexed but its a matter of choice.
Ok going for the Deodexed how do I boot to recovery again I always forget lol!
There's a link here to deodex your rom if you don't go that route now: http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...on-10-battery-mod-official-gb-v4-5-596-a.html
But I am ok just installing the OS from the Zip right?
Deodexed - Must be on a Gingerbread Leak

What does that mod do couldnt really tell.
I like the CRT animation but what is the rotation about?
Do I install these after the OS or do I have to do them prior?
So put the Zip on my Flash card
Boot into recovery install?
then I add these custom things etc?
