    you need to be on .340 froyo to install any of the GB releases. However if you do a backup of your current GB you can SBF to .340 then install the newest leak, after the first reboot reboot to CWR and do an advanced restore of data only from your GB backup. I have SBfing down to a science these days. It only takes about 10 minutes to sbf.

    like Tom said, you just can't...once your on GB you can install the deodexed version...but that is it...

    assuming you have a good nandroid of the stock Froyo, use CWR or Bootstrapper to go back to Froyo, then go to GB per instructions

    DO NOT DO THIS
    you can not go from the leaked GB back to froyo by using a nandroid

    from what i understand if he is on the first GB leak, you have to SBF back to Froyo...using a backup won't work...

    There is no way to get to the new GB without going back to FroYo via SBF.

    The hundred people who have tried to do it and posted here saying, "I'm bricked because I tried using maderstock, how do I fix it?" or "I'm bootlooping because I restored an old nandroid, how do I fix it?" or "I tried installing the GB leak over the old GB and now I'm bricked, what do I do?" will attest to this fact.

    In order to get to the new Gingerbread, you must go back to FroYo via SBF. Period. There's a reason those were the instructions, and it ain't because TBH likes making things difficult. If there were an easy way to upgrade without SBF, those instructions would have been posted.

    Correct! You cannot do this. The only way to get back to Froyo safely from GB is the SBF. Besides it is good practice for anytime that you really need to do it.

    Is it at all possible for someone to put together a youtube video on how to go from rooted GB to the .588 new rooted deodoxed GB? Id greatly appreciate that.

    OP simply put as you've seen is.

    It is not possible to go from the first leak to the second without SBF'ing. so there is your answer.

    i recommend a Mod close this thread now.

    Why would the thread need to be closed? Its now a resource for someone with the same question in the future.

    While the issue may currently be cut and dry, there could always be new developments/future information/questions.
