    The 270 degree rotation will allow the stock home launcher to rotate to both landscape positions. And yes. install them after you are on .596

    Remind me how to boot this phone into recovery again pls.

    Does the OS have to go in any particular folder on the SD card?? Does it have to be renamed?

    Oh so you cant install the Zip thought the buttons you hold down while turning it on?

    You'll either want to use D2 bootstrapper or DX bootstrapper (debugging must not be enabled with DX bootstrapper)
    Click the top button and wait for 'success' pop up
    click the second button to reboot into recovery.

    You can place it anywhere on the SD card. The root of the SD card is the easiest in my opinion. Don't rename it.

    LP won't effect this part.

    There is a file in that thread that you can use if you're on stock .340 that you can flash from stock recovery. But otherwise no, you need to flash from the custom recovery which can be accessed from the above instructions.

    I have 596-Deodexed, on the SD card.

    How did you get to .588? Are you rooted?

    I got it off Droid Life, just DL the zip and installed it from the SD card from holding down the buttons when you boot the phone.

    I havent tried to root since I got GB. Just used Z4 on froyo before I updated.

    Just installed D2 Bootstrapper. Does the phone have to be rooted to use it?

    if you go from FroYo, like I did, no. It might be a good idea if coming from another version of GB

    why not just follow P3droid's instructions?

    the .596 file (unless you used the "signed") version, is already rooted. So far, there isn't a root method available that is for the "signed" version that I am aware of. Let me know if I'm incorrect on that one...
