    I rooted my x using z4root and it worked flawlessly. Today moto and verizon forced gingerbread onto my phone. Didnt want it but had no choice. I downloaded gingerbreak, made sure my sd was mounted and had my usb debug enabled but it just wouldnt work. I let it go multiple times for as long as a half hour, but nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    gingerbreak doesn't work on the ota. you'll have to sbf back to froyo and flash the pre-rooted GB file that can be found in the sticky thread. would link to it but I'm on the phandroid app

    yep, SBF back to .340 and then root. Then, put the two files from this link on your SD card and boot into recovery using D2 Bootstrap. Install both files and then reboot. You will come out on the other end with the latest GB and rooted.

    I SBF'ed to .340 last night because I was running ApeX 1.41 and wanted GB. I made the mistake of updating the phone OTA. Since that meant I couldn't root I just SBF'ed back to .340 again so I could install the rooted version of .596. It wasn't all that bad.
