    I successfully updated to .596 by SBFing to stock, then installing the two part TBH update. Installation went smooth as silk.

    I have these uploaded to my megaupload account, if the server is busy for the original post, hit me up and I'll send you links to everything you need except for the D2 bootstrap, since that's a paid app.
    This official version is too good to keep from the masses...

    I have seen the url for a free download of the D2 bootstrap posted on one of the major forums, but I'm not going to post it here because, as you pointed out, it IS a paid app. As a side-note though, you *can* use the Droid X bootloader, as long as you *turn off* USB Debugging. Since the "off" position is the norm on my DX, I usually just continue to use the DX Bootstrap app, with no problem. You just have to keep the formula straight in your head.

    -Mike

    P.S. Something else - before I undertook this update, I noticed that I had the Droid 2 bootloader App on my SD Card. I don't recall how or why it ended up there, but if you feel you MUST have that particular bootloader, look on your SD Card. It may be that the thing plops itself there as part of the installation process.

    I got mine through a proper download, so i know where it came from, lol... I figured the servers might get clogged up a little this first couple days so I uploaded the files for the full rooted version coming from FroYo, plus all the stuff needed to SBF (except bootstrap, as mentioned) This should make things smoother for a few people.

    Anyone know how much better the battery life is on Gingerbread compared to stock Froyo? Today is my first day using any sort of Gingerbread so I guess I will quickly find out....but WOW did stock Froyo not work out well for me. Apex was unbelievable but Froyo only got me through one day, compared to my 1 1/2 - 2 days on Apex.

    Just curious :) Still lovin' the blue look and the app grouping!

    I think I may have already answered my own question. I'm at 6 hours and still 100%. I've been texting some off and on to the GF this morning and even went online a few times. Wow is this awesome!!!! :)

    Thank you for that bit of information! On my wife's DX, I installed the 2-part update from .340 Froyo using the DX Bootstrap App with USB Debugging set to off in settings and it all installed without a hitch! Seems to be working great so far...

    Okay, so I'm on .340 and I'm going to install the two part files. If I install these am I going to deodexed?
